There is a small part of Portland called Milwaukee, I am assuming that is what Garrett meant.

Thats alright when the bike is done I will ride it to WI   ;D for you. I will just get on and ride, let the days just blend together finding myself at home in a month or two, 15 or so states later, seeing it all talking to people sleeping out under the stars.

Bad news people, I recieved the wrong front tire in the mail today. I was really looking forward to getting the bike finished this weekend. Still trying to get it sorted out. Really bummed.

Feck,yes! I missed the addition of the black stripes.  RAWR!

Maybe I'll try to stop by some Thursday or Friday when I'm off work.

Sorry about the two identical pics, computer won't let me edit for some reason.

Also Kit, just let me know what time of day you would be able to stop by.

Here is the pic I meant to put up. Thanks all

Kit I am at the shop most weekdays until 4:30 so just let me know a day and rought time so I am not out running errands when you stop by.

So sad thing is the tank will have to be repainted. The stripe is to much off center at the top of the tank. A real shame. I will update you all as this progresses.
