Is that your odo Shonuff? Cause if it is, I gotta say - she still runs like a bat outa hell the last time I rode with you!
Edit: If that is your odometer/speedo, uhmmmm - your idle is to low.

That is not my odo, John but the pic came from another forum. The guy that rode that bike was selling it on another forum from the South Bay. Apparently he had ridden it cross country a few times and had pictures of it in front of a bunch of signs and scenery in his ad. I only have 28000 on mine.
