Quick note, I welded the broken shaft on my shift lever, clutch fixed, levers fixed couple other small things and both bikes are up and running again.

Any noticeable difference in the performance of the two?


There doesn't seam to be any difference in the performance of the bikes related to the slide. But ion general the white bike seams a little quicker and has a deeper louder sound with the BUB shorts. But both bikes feel very different to ride even though they are both 99 silverado's the white bike has a lower seat hight, feels much shorter and steers much easier almost to the point of over steer.

Yes, in Olympia, Crosby Rd/Cooper Point exit on 101 just before I-5, its a 7-11 gas and mini mart.

Just as a side note, we had an awesome 360 mile ride yesterday, weather was amazing! went North on the coast to Sand Lake then down 101 to Seal Rock and back to the valley via Corvallis, most of that route is in our itinerary. or more accurately, from Albany up I-5 to Salem, out Hwy 22 to Willamina, up Willamina Creek Rd (it has a number, 410 I think) not for the faint of heart but it was paved, snow on the sides of the road up high. Followed that to Beaver on 101, North to Sand Lake, turn around and go South on 101 to Seal Rock, turn around and go North on 101 back to Hwy 20, East on 20 to Toledo and a quick out and back to Siletz, East on 20 to Blodgett and another quick out and back to Summit then continued East on 20 to I-5, North to Salem then back home to Albany. I was out about 12 hours total. That Willamina Ck Rd was about 50 miles of 20 and 30 mph traveling.
