    Zambezi... I might have had my bike back on the road sooner if I had shipped it out to your dh........ Sheeeesh.

    This has been the longest wait ever... SO frustrating. I told the guy I don't HAVE all that many riding years, LEFT.. what's he trying to do... whittle away at what little riding time is left to me? Grrrrrrrrrrrrr.... :angryfire
    If I recall--you have a bmw right?? My husband's father is one of the best technicians on those bikes--years of experience. However, I have to say that it is the busy time of year right and and in order to get parts or in for a service takes time during the season...and according to my husband nothing ever comes in on time (or if it does come in, its not the right part) This is one of my husband's biggest sources of stress...He hates to hear what you just wrote because he wants everyone to be out riding (unfortunately it seems to be more common than not). Anyway, I hope your bike gets fixed soon so you can go and enjoy the summer!!

    Anyone who like pacific northwest::
    Ducati Northwest is this weekend and Portland Internation Raceway!! It should be a blast! There will be track rides and a good time for all...But it is tomorrow!! Thursday August 5 (I think that is the right date...) :uhoh21: If you ride a have some time off, try to make it, should be fun!
    pm me if you have qustions!!

    Zambezi... no, it's a vintage 1963 Earle's Fork BMW, big tank. There's a great place in Georgia that refurbishes all the old BMWs... that's al he does... and does a tremendous job. Would have loved to have taken it there to have it all done over.. stripped down to basics and done from scratch.. just was short the $2000.00 for this. Maybe someday.. so for right now, it's just a paintjob and some basic cleaning up, new tires, grips, brake and clutch cables, etc.

    I can send you the link to that guy in Georgioa of you want.. but then, your FIL probably already knows it? Here you go.. just in case...
