    Sounds good. Looks good and a little wild when the exhaust escape’s the cylinders push-fit header.

    The rider and his flywheel are as one, by this time. 🙂 Onward !

    Where’s Bu-Zard (Fr. for Buzz) in all of this?

    We’d be tracking him, but some bandito’s virus’d the CAI and AIM websites, so we’ve lost track of him and his partner.
    Don’t tell him or his buddy until they gets to Santa Monica, we don’t him to careen into a ditch.

    Thanks Cyril for the continuing updates.

    They offer an opportunity to understand the heritage and legacy of motorcycling.
    A heritage that’s about rugged individuals who rely on their knowledge, perseverance, and self assurance to challenge the world on their terms. It’s about people who are willing to accept the consequences of their choices.

    In short, it’s more about character than about push button starters, check books, and BS stories.

    Quite a reality check. to those who understand.
    Totally perplexing to those who don’t get the connection.
    And totally irrelevant to those who don’t care about anything beyond their appearance.
