What do you mean, I'm not helping? I try to prop up every ones' reputation around here. Tho it's probly not a good idea to let your SO see my comments if they have any doubts about your concern for safe & sane riding.

I got your back on the paint work bud.
We will have to figure out a different ride, Southeast Ohio is off limits, the last two times I went there didn't end well.
I could be up for another meet n eat.

Joe, we just need to take a bit more leisurely pace in SE OH. & WV, too, tho my little trip off road was at about 5 mph. I'm getting too old for that crap. I'm still recovering. It's been nearly 3 weeks & after getting the bike fixed, I've put about 150 miles on it. Still have to call Perry to see when he wants to get together so I can get his fairing back to him. Brought it home in the trailer when he didn't want to deal with tying on the bike & then riding back to MI. So that's gonna be a meet-n-eat, maybe. I'd be ready for a meet-n-eat with you & Kelly & whoever else wants to show up, too.

Hey guys, I'm always up for a meet and eat. FYI, the Peggy Sue's on 36 got sold and is closed down. I'm doubting it will reopen because we saw a different kind of sign in front of it. Brian, a new Sportster buddy of mine named Doug and I rode and hit the Warehouse in Coshocton. Was pretty good. So if you want to try SE OH again, I have a cabin off 35 near Rio Grande where we could hold up for the night. I love a road down there, 141 between Ironton and Gallipolis, that's awesome.

Well, here is the latest project with the new to me Roadster.
I still had the stock tank off of the 06, so I bought a couple of fenders on eBay, I had enough basecoat leftover from the 06's tank project so this happened. I also painted the air cleaner satin black, thinking about doing the exhaust heat sheilds, and the clutch cover and primary chain inspection cover too.
