    That triple tree will make a huge improvement!!

    After talking with Paul and looking around at where the certified people are located. I decided to have mine done by Fred Harmon. He is in Fort Worth which is about the same number of miles for me as it was to Paul's place.

    Mine is scheduled for the end of April.

    On another note. I know it can be a problem traveling very far to visit an unfamiliar area. If you ever want to come in this direction, let me know. If I can make myself available during your visit window. I think we can make the best use of your time by getting to the good stuff during your visit, with very little if any detours on not so fun roads.

    Hey Bob, I was hoping you might see this and have some suggestions even. Also, where do you think you will get your Traxxion serviced since Paul Bihm is no longer doing it? I installed some Traxxion forks myself but I think I might need a triple tree and I don't think I want to tackle that myself. Just curious if you had any thoughts on that. Thanks in advance.

    I booked a room in Harrison for Monday night. you can give me a call or text Monday evening to when and where's convenient for everyone to meet?
    If you guys would like things to warm up and dry out a little before getting out, I'm in no hurry to get back to KC.

    Hey Bob hope your doing great. Looks like you had a good ride at the SMRI event. Man I would have loved to have been there. Looking for some info. My wife loves to visit nice state parks that has a nice lodge. I thought about trying one out in Ar. Do you have any suggestion on any that stands out. I sure did enjoy riding with you and Donnie in Wise. Man that was an awesome ride. Look forward to seeing you again in the future. Good travels Thanks Tommy Lee

    I just took off a Pirelli Winter Snow Control 210 serie 3 . I got 6,663 miles from it. On better roads, like you have, it will last longer than that.

    Currently, I just installed a Pirelli Centurato P1. Elrod recommended it as a light Runflat that is a good twisty tire. I plan to wear it out and try to do a comparison between the two.

    Yeah, the last time I talked with Mike he expressed real concern about continuing to ride. Feels like it is just a matter of time if they continue.

    Hey, are you making the trip over to Arkansas for the Fall ride with the F6B group? It would give me the opportunity to return the favor and show you some of our good stuff in the Ozarks!!

    Bob, could you give me the information on Pirelli car tire on Goldwing, I got a friend that wants to try the Pirelli, since the Michelin is no longer available.


    Last time I talked to Michael Kennedy, he is trying hard to sell his wing. scared after Wimpys deer accident ..
    Thanks Terry Rogers heli9@bellsouth.net
