Dude is a very brave Lad. I dont trust a fresh build to go downtown and back. I gotta take it around the block eight or ten times first. I hate being any more than a block away from the toolbox when something fubar's.
Tell dude, next time ya talk to him, The guy's, (And gal's.) at MBC wish him all the best.
P.S. IS there any way for DUDE to send pictures for you to post. THAt would be the COOLEST, Pics of the country he's riding, and pics of the bike all loaded up and ready to go. We all wish we were riding beside him.
