Signs a forum is dead: the most exciting thing going is a 9 year old thread with the last post being almost 8 years ago.

We're trying man. We just need some new blood -- or a new whipping boy.

Funny you ask. I have it stored at a friend shed. Last week a freak tornado hit HoCo. I get a call not long after the storm passed:



Him: "A tornado just ripped through my town. I was hunkered down inside and heard a boom. It blew apart the shed. Your bike is on the ground laying on its side. I tried, but I can't pick it up." (He doesn't know the method to pick up a downed bike).



Me: "Laying on its side? On the ground? What - it was in the shed."



Him: "I don't have a shed anymore."

You should have locked in the race a decade ago when you were offered pro bono parts .... would have changed its destiny. Think of the bike laying on its side like an old dog who won't play fetch anymore.



You had your chance to let it run free....


And now....


But since I'm a nice guy when you decide to get her running I'll jump down about 300ccs from 929 to 636.

Absolutely not. I drove over the same night he told me and righted her. Not too much damage, fortunately. Mostly cosmetic stuff.

It did rip a hole through the new DOWCO I had covering it though. I wasn't happy about that! They don't cover that sort of damage.

Hahahaha... Same ole, Ali. If anything, no one can EVER say that you're not committed to consistency.



Where do you stand in your recovery by the way?
