Shout out to Kegger and G2G!

I just wanted to say thank you to you guys for your suggestions on fixing my front end. You guys were right on with your assessment, I did what you said, and all is fine now. The bike rides perfectly straight with the handlebars & forks now. I've never experienced this problem before and have trailed my bikes many times.

Thanks a lot Doods!!!! Beers are on me next time I see you guys.

Oh, and the bike rocks! I can't believe how comfortable it is. I should have got one of these a while ago. Perfect for street riding and long trips.

I am so frigging relieved.

Mike

COOL!

Glad it was all well, instead of having to go through the whole computracking process and expense.

Yes, I loosened all the pinch bolts on the triple trees, and just like on my old Huffy bicycle, I put the front wheel between my legs while holding the handlebars and twisted it until they were straight. It was that easy.

Streetfighters Rule!

I can't really speak to Kegger but G2G is a Moron - Take your bike to a shop NOW before you kill yourself - j/k Steve, he prolly won't die

Again Mike, congrats, love the new prila
