Great day yesterday. Got to official OK to chuck the cast I actually stopped using two weeks ago. Left thumb is healing nicely.
Had a massive steroid injection in my abused right thumb/wrist and it should feel better soon.

The yellow sportster will be back on the roads of western Massachusetts and southern Vermont and New Hampshire by weeks end.

Shouldn’t you two be planning a COBB ride now that Paul’s bike is making root vegetable noises?

Wish mine was making those noises. Repaired head light and wire a few weeks back. Went out for a small ride on father's day with my son and girlfriend . My rear brakes started making grinding noises my rotor is all ground up rubbing against the rear fork.

Thanks Mick I still have mine oem rotor also. Years ago I got billet rims and matching rotors. Looking at different styles now how do you like your floaters? I looked and measured yep not aligned did not fine anything loose but had to be enough. From now on I will have to check it out more often. That rotor was not cheap. LOL

Mark, you’ll like “floaters “, more even wear on your pads and better feel when activating.
