Its Finished

Well after a long hiatus, the RC is back on the road and sounding glorious. Just need to get it on the dyno (and finish some wiring) Thanks for all the help guys.

Everything works fine now, just cracks and pops every once and awhile.

Oh, well, mine have done that for the past 25 or 30 years ... and I'm 'only' 44

Man ... that's a HUGENORMOUS scar, though!

That's a massive injury down to the bone.
Did you suffer any nerve damage?

Atta boy, I'm gonna come ride with this guy.......don't let a little scratch and a few dents get in your way. Next time I am in Vegas, I'm buying the beers.

But really, I have a leg I could compare that lovely with.....nothing beats the sound of a shattering femur. A sound you can never forget

Now, get to riding that on over to the DJ guys and ride on.
