They did work with us and I will go back again when the time comes. They gave me what I wanted offer. Trade also. So out back in the driveway sits Ruby. The new addition to the house. Soon I will go open the garage door and tuck her away for the nite. Thanks to all who responded to my questions. This is what I truly love about this site. It's the brotherhood we all share.

Great looking bike. Looks just like my first 1800. Congratulations for acquiring the fastest color too!

Just checked the front pads, a litle difficult because of the ring of fire covers the PO installed; they have many miles ahead, bit the rear Dunlop Elite 3 is about to end, I searched for a Shinko Journey, they didn't sell the 1800's size in Mexico, but a guy told me he could order, good, because the Dunlop is very expensive here and very scant too, not ready for the dark side yet?

Big Bird got a bath today..... could not believe all of the road grease on her...
when it cools off a bit, probably way late tonight.... she will get a new coat of wax.





Yeah, I know, the fuse box cover is off.... was working on the trailer lights, and discovered a couple of blown fuses.... and I found a 30 amp fuse where a 5 amp fuse is supposed to be

gotta make a run to the parts store, and stock up on the right size fuses for spares.

Went for a long ride in the country. Stopped for gas and saw some kids waving at me. Kids love motorcycles dont they.

You should see how crazy they get when someone rides by on a motorized bicycle!

Today I put on the highway pegs so I am able to straighten my leg out. While I was installing I look at the right grip and saw this. Does anyone have a clue? The knob does turn from left to right.
