History
so much history. I let go of the past and concentrate on the now.
Right now, the engine is in one room, torn down to the connecting rod. Side cases coming off soon.
The new piston, cylinder stuff, and possible porting is being saved up for. So is the cost of a rebuild of the cogent Moab shock. It's about 11 years old and has had no attention (no leaking or sadness yet)

Rebuilding the bike will involve excessive amounts of time in slow considerations to create something that will get me up the side of the Hudson Bay someday.
