Word to the wise - just because Vcook looks like he's tightening all the bolts doesn't mean he's tightening all the bolts. Over time I learned to have another haven (Sticky's pad) strategically located on the way home to scoop you up when those finger tight parts rattle off on the highway.

On the upside, I learned a properly wedged allen key will hold a brake caliper on at highway speeds!

(but seriously, Vcook is good people)

((but more seriously, keep Sticky on speed dial))

Little known fact: Gixxers rule so much that they can run on allen keys, the urine of an alcoholic, zip ties, and mind bullets.

It's the perfect meld of nature and machine.

Bug must have known this, since he went back over the bolts and put loctite on all of them

A little Tail Section Surgery is all - It had come loose but it was not an easy fix as anything with Duc
