He does not start off at a 1000?? SWEET!! Let me know when he is capable, and I will provide him a tent next to 180 ft of waterfront and a 1500 to finish all my "wish list"

Congratulations, that is actually pretty nice. I know with my son he has had some mechanical know how roll down to him, he helped a travel today with floorshifter locked up, ended up being safely relay, he manually reset it they were good to go. It's nice when your training shows results. You have several different models of bikes that your son can practice on besides the car so he can be busy. Plus, start giving opinions on repairs here! How's that?

Do you dress alike so that your wife cannot tell the difference? :lol:

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.

That was coincidence that day...but we do have some of the same shirts. :)

bustedwing, I recall reading a story posted by a couple who rode all over the country on a GL1100. They had a clutch cable break in the middle of nowhere. He rigged up a small handle by tying the remaining cable around it, and handed it to his wife on the back. He would shout to her "out....in!" to have her operate the clutch as he shifted the bike. They rode for over a day like that. Now that's teamwork! :)
