Yeah, there's a few of us. I haven't been on in quite a while; been in a slump, and just now gettin' my head out and getting back to work on the scoots. Trying to get my 750 and two others back on the road, the other two sold, and get the 'Wing paid off, finally.

What's up?

Hey JD! Long time no hear brother. Hope you're still keeping it between the white lines.

Hey, Joe! Yeah, I'm still at it; runnin' Houston to Shreveport, spend the night, then back to Houston and Galveston the second day, off the third, then do it all again.

If I stay on this run past June, I'm thinkin' I'll take a bike to S'port and keep it at the hotel. I get there just after noon, and don't leave 'til just before noon the next day; I could get some decent ridin' in before I have to hit the sack and get my rest.

Good to hear from ya, guy!

BigT is in LaPorte, and Danny (rccrashburn) is on the NW side of H-town. There's several not online, two of 'em over near me.

I'd've recommended Highlands Kawasaki, but they're no longer in the Kawasaki business. I don't know enuff about Kawasaki of Pasadena's service dept. to make a recommendation; I've heard good and bad over the last few years, and they were looking for a tech not long ago.

There's Ebr Performance, in Seabrook, but I know nothing about them. Backroads Cycles on Hwy 3 in S. Houston is a no-no; several bad reports from friends of mine.

Fork tube seals aren't difficult, but an extra hand can be a plus. I've got two that need doing, but it'll be a couple weeks at least; I've got the seals and dust boots, just ain't had the time. My schedule is such that I get a Sunday off every 3 weeks, with Saturday off the following weekend, and usually a couple days off during the week.

Hey, looking back thru your recent posts; did you get your bike from BigT? What did he get?
