Doohickey and unhappy owner

An acquaintance brought his Gen1 by today to to the Doohickey. Tipped the bike to the right against the wall, engine guard, etc., pulled stator cover and inserted a small mirror into the opening at lower front of rotor and....already done. He was not pleased even though tried to explain that this was good news.

He can sell the bits for even 1/2 price and be money ahead of if his had to be replaced. He accepted this with about as much good grace as would I.

Nothing more annoying that to be in a mad and have someone point out how unreasonable it was.

That's why it's best to buy a new bike so you know you have to do the "Do". LOL.

The feeling of the wind in your face can lift your heart.

That's why I look to you for guidance, Toney. You see things much more clearly than I. ;-)

Don't let Tom hear you or he'll post his gallery of horrors and that might make you have to do the work. He's shamed me into doing a couple of things and I'm not the forgiving type.
