Went on an 8.5 hour ride with Briars through SW AR/SE OK. We had a great time riding through the mountains, drinking beer and doing wheelies. I had to hoof it home to be on time for company at supper; made what takes my wife a 50 minute run in 20 minutes.

Adjusted front and back suspension. I was also thinking about lowering the front about 1/4 in.

Removed a huge dead spider that got fried on the headers and another one that got squished under the rear tire. LOL, it was weird seeing those.

I rode it home from the dealer last night. I then installed a Zero Gravity windscreen and some T-Rex Frame sliders this morning. Red 08 Fazer with gold accents on everything.

I'll put up an avatar pic soon. (total site newb)

Reinstalled my ignition module for my PCIII. The old one was having issues and Dynojet replaced it for me with no hassle. Now the endless trial and error testing of maps on here!

Installed slip on Thursday night. Then put on 450 miles over the weekend and rode to work this morning. Loving the tone from the MIVV GP.

What did I do to the FZ1 this past weekend??

I whacked it with the fishing poles by accident as I was loading the boat. I need to get rid of this fishing addiction, it's really cutting in to my seat time.

So did the seller send you the correct right bolt and left washer?

Brought it home from the rally, rolled it off the trailer and into the garage.

And you are right here with us.

I don't hold onto baggage, but I remember things. I thought it was a misunderstanding until I see you pretty much respond to everyone like that. That's too bad.

Ummm, you OK dude ? We are pro-functional and maybe read a little deeper on the board to know this thread is mostly scatter-shot.
Good Day.
