Very nice. I'll pick up a couple of scratch tickets on the way home. With any luck, I'll see you this weekend.

So Twisted T- you must be a guy that welds in the garage as well?

Forgive me for being nosy, but are these health issues gonna get better?  Or are you giving up bikes altogether.

I've developed arthritis in my wrists and hands. It's not real bad right now, but riding a bike with forward lean made my hands useless after about half an hour. I sold my Speed Triple for the Strom because of the straight up seating position, and it was great. All day rides only left me a little achy, and ibuprofin took care of it. Unfortunately the straight up seating position has been really hard on my back. I went to my spine guy and got a new MRI which shows I have a fresh disc rupture to go with the 2 I already was dealing with. So I don't know if I'll be able to ride anymore at all, and definitely not this season.

So somebody feel sorry for me and buy my bike, OK?   :bigsmile:

Nice, clean bike - GLWS.  Is this an ABS or non-ABS model?

It looks like tiny weld beads on the tire, especially near the lower right.  When you weld metal and hit rust or paint the weld spatters, leaving these little balls of steel on the floor.  It looks like your tire rolled over some and picked them up.  Guess not!   :shrug: :bigok:

Oh, I thought you saw something in there that looked like welding supplies.

That's just dirt/dust/insect carcass/mouse feces from my garage floor.   :lol:

Buy my bike, dammit!!
