Hell yeah!!
I've had mine in pieces for two years for various reasons.
I can't wait until I check off the last item and get to ride it.

yeah I've been riding into work the past two days. It's been in the mid-80's and sunny around here! I love hitting up the exhaust but then it's back to traffic - boo...

A state and another country, lol. So glad I don't have to stay much longer. Moving back to Oklahoma to finish my graduate work and then who knows...Ireland/UK has been mentioned.
