...a chicken pie reminded me of trips past and I wished my regular riding buddies were with me.

Excellent report,  Mr Striker. Do you have some German genes in you? This report was crafted in accordance with precision engineering principles.  :biggrin:  Very nice photies as well.

Always a pleasure to read your creations.  :thumleft:

Nice RR LS

May I suggest you try the AirHawk seat, it's a revelation and I for one cannot do without it...in fact, it saved the 'dero's bacon due to the vibs from the twin.
