    grasshopperglock,

    By far the fastest car that I've ever owned was a 1953 lowered "STUDILLAC" Loewy Starlight coupe with a "hotrod" Caddy engine & transmission in it.
    (Another hotrod that was MUCH better on the dragstrip & on "top end" than it ever handled on curves.)

    yours, satx

    Cleaned the truck, inside and out. Put another ‘payment’ into the replacement fund.

    Well the engine guard works, went down on the right side; was pulling into a parking spot.

    This is the culprit about 12” across and 8” deep 41e5db6c00b54766128459f081e0c3af.jpg

    Minor scuff to bottom side of Engine Guard and floorboard mounting bracket ; already sanded and touched up.

    How's that 8" deep? It doesn't look it.

    grasshopperglock,

    IF I can find a matched pair of 40HP OMC outboards (at a price that I can afford!!), I should have the OFFSHORE 1702 restored & ready for fall fishing by Labor Day or maybe sooner.
    (A member of another forum to which I belong & who had seen my ad for buying 2 matching OB motors on craigslist.com, offered me a pair of "well-used" 1963 SEA KING 40HP OBs for a THOUSAND DOLLARS EACH.====> When I saw his email, I actually LOL.)

    yours, satx

    Just ordered the Shad mounts for the F800r. Already have the 3 bag set up for VFR so cost not too bad. Found a deal across the pond for a OEM tank bag too. $500 poorer but set up for a trip to Hill country or to Talimena Parkway

    Received an email from the gentleman that bought the Suzuki. He's put 600 miles on the bike so far.
