Well it sounds like you won't be without your bike for long. They will just swap out motors when the new one is ready?
You know, that Maggie Valley trip sounds like a good one. Is it open to anyone, or just current and past Valk riders? When is it? I was at the Honda Hoot about 2 years ago and got on some very good rides in the East Tenn. mountains, including Deals Gap. I've been itching to do that again.
I talked to the painter yesterday and they are putting on the base coat today and then it will go to graphics. It was FUN discussing paint schemes with the painter yesterday. I'm getting very excited.
My old chrome front end should be delivered to the factory today and the check (mailed separately) also. Hopefully they will turn around the new chrome quickly.
I have a new blueprinted carburetor that should arrive this week (THANK YOU BUSA DAVE), along with chrome plug wire rails to help cover that ugly exhaust manifold. The bike looks pretty naked right now. But I'm excited about how it is going to turnout. I just hope I can get it all back together without any problems. I've never messed with a front end before and don't have a clue about adjustments or alignments that may be necessary. I'd hate for this thing to get into a high speed wobble or simply come apart with me on it. :shock:
