Goose grabs a wrench . . . aka, why Kev is single part 1

The place to come if you've been with us for years or it's your first time here. General yakking about anything motorcycle related. Think of it as the internet coffeehouse for the UTMC.

Thank Rench!
Indeed, I've had an odd year. The last 4 months or so have been tumultuous to say the least. I'm not out of the woods yet, but it was nice to finally finish up the Berg, fire it up and go for a ride. Riding doesn't cure anything, but it sure helps to straighten out my thought process. Clears my mind and enriches the soul. When I returned home I was much more focused on the tasks ahead and almost enthusiatic about taking on the challenges. Yes, I still love riding. Riding the bike I rebuilt only made it sweeter!

Holy shit. I am so sorry, I can't even... Really man, I, we, get it. That's just devastating. Roadmissile's Duke turned up again. Maybe they'll realize a Berg is too specialized and leave it somewhere. Here's to hoping.

Still, whoever is responsible should be strung up by the gonads and left to rot. Sorry, man. I hope insurance can cover most if it. :P

OH FUck yeah!! Any significant damage? Is all of your carbonfiber dickassery still there?

i have one. it was a confluence of bad circumstances that led to my truck and bikes being out over night. Yep, that's not going to happen again. Was glad to have things turn out good so quickly. Can honestly say I was done.
