Just remember: slow, overweight, poorly suspended, and not particularly attractive is no way to go through life, son.

Tinking it'll be late summer earliest... maybe after Labor Day, for that matter.  But that's a discussion for after the Holidays....

Hey, you play the hand you're dealt, yes?

Got out for about an hour yesterday, and the bike is a hoot!

Tires, though. Tires, like NOW!

It's an M2 with parts from a number of models -- it'll just be a Sunday scoot to scare myself with, not shotting for any particular genre . . . . the bike is the poster child for "Mission Creep." It started as a top end job, and, at last count, the gearbox was about the only thing not taken apart . . . .

Then, out of consideration to you two, I'll not get them -- if I did, the cool would immediately move on to something else, and you'd have to replace yours . . .

You are most welcome!
