It's been a while for me. Last time I road I rented a Harley and did the flat four with some friends. That was a blast. I'm really missing not having a bike though. Not sure I'm willing to ride too much on the street anymore though. Pretty sure the track isn't for me anymore either. I'm looking for a dirt bike to see if that'll scratch my itch some. If it does, maybe I'll get back into street riding again some.

Spend every moment that I'm not at the day job Working on bikes.

Once in a while I steal a quick ride around the block.

Funny thing is I own a dozen running bikes.

We offer three kinds of service @ Resurrection
GOOD - CHEAP - FAST
You can pick any two
GOOD service CHEAP won't be FAST
GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD
and cold beer.

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.
Please contact other forum members and supporters for parts.

I've been riding at least once a week since I got my SV back from Gus. He does good work!

I need to fix a few more things though. I've got a slight oil leak on the right side (haven't figured out where) and I need a new battery. I'm sure there is more I could/should work on, but those are the biggest issues I'm having now.

You forgot to add that while the guy is at his stealership servicing bikes you are at his home servicing his woman.
