Will keep an eye out for progress reports.
Look after your self mate.

A custom bike or a chopper should be something that has had the original essence of its existence altered to project the skills, objectives and artistic vision of its creator so the viewer or “beholder” and the creator can be positively stimulated by the actual bold or sublime beauty of the bike. Both need to project an essence of suitability, practicality, function and righteousness that has no stand for mediocrity or aesthetic blasphemy.

Gee all falling by the wayside eh.
Hope your lady is OK Bacca. Let us know major or minor effects ????

As most of you know my wife Julie has been on Chemo for breast cancer for the last few months and I went off on the Mega Ride while she was about to have her last of 6 treatments. My daughter Emily (doctor) stayed with her while I was away but you gotta admit it was an awesome ask for me to be away but all went well. She had her last treatment and is now recovering from it for the last time. Radio therapy starts in 3 weeks for 4 weeks then all done for Xmas.

Let's hope thats the end of the list of sickies eh !

Having a stroke on a bike. And living. Ledgendary stuff.
Swift recovery to you Gringo.

Hope all goes well, Bacca.
Glad it was timed with you there, not on the road.
Time to start playing with the Vmax.
Oh and maybe I should finish the trike too!
