Thank you.
So, are you going to get back up and running? I'm glad that you made it back home, wherever home is, but remember the old saying... "a man without a bike is just a man", and we can't have that can we?

Take care brother.

I bought the bike for $3300 and I don't think I've put $2k into it over 6 years (less fuel, oil and tires).
Hammer time may have put me over $5k total, though.
I don't bother to keep track because it doesn't matter.
