Hey gang, its been awhile. I never got to show you guys my cool dual front fender mod (I'll try and get that up soon, its cool). Sorry I haven't been contributing lately. My life kinda took a crazy turn.
I'm really close to my old man. He's 65 and recently suffered a stroke. It his the family hard and my time has been dedicated to taking care of his business (rental income properties) etc. I haven't had much time... The good news is though, he got to a stroke center super quick and he's making a great recovery, just much slower now.
The bad news... I lost my beloved TW.
The good news... My dad had to have it!
I had it with me on a trip to his house. He's just like me, an old desert racer (he actually raced in mexico with Malcom Smith and knew Bruce Brown and all those guys including sharing campfires with McQueen and the boys). He cant ride the tall bikes anymore, so he loved the TW. Rode it around his property, with the rack and stuff, he loved it as a "get the mail" or "fix a fence" bike. I handed him the keys right on the spot and went home without it.
So... now I need a bike. NO decent Dubs around here anywhere, then I ran across an 02 DRz400S, with get this, 380 miles on it. Cosmetic issues, but a virtually unused bike. More neglect than wear. For the price, I couldnt resist.
So the dub is still around, so I'll be around from time to time, although my technical time is better spent on ThumperTalk... anyhoo, that's it. Sorry for the long winded "hello again". I'll always be a Tdubber!
