For a modest fee, I'll run that baby down to Kansas for Johnj to do that work for you... :o)

Locked out so I have a little bit of time on hand...

At least if there has to be a silver lining it is MORE RIDING TIME! Don't let it go to waste.

finally was able to refinance. My credit has been horrid the last 3 years and I finally got it to a point I could do a refi. Lowered my total payment by $13/month but my actual house payment went up $5/month. However I also knocked 5 years off the loan itself. So I went from 7% down to 4.1% woohoo.

Today I officially upgraded to the Intermediate level as an EMT. In Ohio, our standards for the Intermediate level are higher than the National standard (NREMT), so I get to perform much more useful skills to help our patients. The testing process took a long time (class was over in early April), so I'm glad to finally be finished. Yay!

Cheers,
Loonette

Went to the Fan Fest tonight to kick off the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
They had an electric race bike there putting down 394 ft lbs of torque.
Got to talk to the Ducati mechanics about the Multistrada they're running this year.
Talked to one of the racers in the Open Unlimited class about his car, he's running a bored-out SBC twin turbo on injected methanol, and says they broke the dyno they were on at around 1240 HP and 1200 TQ.

Was supposed to go to bike show with fella but he had to work :( so I went out myself.
Got slightly lost on route to bike event but found myself enroute to Sammy Miller's motorcycle museum, result! :lol:

Turned out they had a mini British Bike show. :uk:. I initially parked up away from display as I didn't think my S3 qualified as most bikes were classics. Couple of old boys told me not to be silly & insisted I park up with the other British Bikes.

Lovely laid back atmosphere & so friendly. Well worth a visit if you find yourself in New Forest.

Came back via Mudeford quay & got chatting to a lovely couple. Then bumped into really good mate who was there with mates on a couple of old scooters.

Home now & sat in back garden, & it's still really hot at 1800hrs! :sunshine:

Going to start going out more on my own as then I actually mingle :lol:

22k miles, runs great newish tires, fresh tune up and oil. There are only two things to do with her one the seat is in the trash can in my garage. The pan was trash and not even for a magna. does anyone know if the one piece seats from other years will fit the 84 700 magna?? I would rather replace it with one of those if i could as they are easier to find. (read cheaper and more options) The other issue Is leaking valve covers and I already have them and the grommets in the mail

'82-'84 should work, '85-'86 might work and '87 and later are likely a no.

Thanks high side. My bike was supposed to have the NEW great idea two piece design. I already took of the bolted on brackets and it receives the one piece seat nicely. Fellow down the road has an 83 let me slip it on to make sure. LIKE A GLOVE. I am thinking i might just jump at the cushy looking saddleman seat with the two big buckets. Most places look like $100 used add price for cover might as well buy the Saddleman seat new.
