    Been there... broke that... now have plenty of "dry lube" around as a regular maintenance precaution. Bad sign when you see your cable starting to fray and you are still 90 clikcks from home. And the project, Shane - a work of art! Love watching the progression.

    Awesome, Shane.

    And good thing that Josh is a competent electrical guy.

    Video

    Very exciting news, the online video product http://www.petrolicious.com/ started shooting video footage yesterday at Josh's garage for the special they want to do about my bike. Going to be pretty cool, they are going to me on location when I see the bike for the first time to caputre that moment as well, Josh is pretty tickled, as he should be.

    Thanks,
    Shan

    First Time Driven

    Josh is breaking in the bike for me, in fact he took it to work today, he is still adjusting, has to add the side toaster panels, and we will be good to go,

    Thanks,
    Shane

    Thanks Wayne, in fact www.petrolicious.com is going to meet me at Josh's place the day I arrive for the bike unveiling and they are going to do a video on the bike. They have been documenting some of the work and want to see my reaction so we are getting a little press, thanks for all of your support, you are the best,

    Shane

    Great to hear the big twin fired up. Question/observation, will those four little slits on the back of the mufflers flow enough gas to let'r breathe? Guess time will tell. The last of yet another concrete snowfall just melted here, temps may hit 60F tomorrow, finally. Take care all.

    Look up Snowbum's Intake and Exhaust tuning page. It describes how that works.
