Well, I finally got her back after about 9 months of not having my bike. For those of you who don't know, I had wrecked Gladys on the 19th of July last year. I had to wait about 5 months to get the deductible money together and put her in the shop. It took the shop another 4 months to get her put back together again. The first time I got it back, the radiator and the subframe were still tweaked, along with a scratch in the panel under the seat and an oil leak. Took it back in for another 3 weeks, and finally got it back yesterday. I now noticed that the fork tubes are still a little twisted in the trees, but that is not an issue I cannot solve. I would take it back, but I am gonna just take it to a frame guy since they couldn't get it right at triumph. Also for a little piece of mind. New stuff: 675 radial master cylinder with dual goodrich lines and teflon pistons (awesome setup!); gold renthal streetfighter bars; CRG hindsight LS mirrors; new sliders; black radiator end caps; and a ZARD. Oh, and I posted a new top speed of 150 mph today. It feels good to be back guys...

I still got the pipes, and if somebody wants 'em $400. I may just keep them, so I can change them back and forth. Or maybe donate them to Devi so he could turbocharge them or something.

Is Engle Motors in KC the place who was supposed to fix it? If so, maybe I need to find a different shop if I need anything done to mine. ???

Yes cheap, I am a little rusty. Scared the hell outta myself. And yeah Engle Motors is where it was done, and I am a little disappointed. I wish there was another dealer around here, but the next closest one is about 4 hours away.
