Thanks Mike! Very much appreciated smiley
Now about getting the bike properly assembled..... why do you think I got the t-shirts made with a blueprint on them? grin. In all seriousness, if no parts have gone missing, I hope it'll be a straight forward 5-6 hour job   smiley

Hi Patrick. Real glad to hear you'll be there. Really looking forward to meeting you in person. So is my friend Lars who's coming along. He rides a 1945 ULH and is a huge HD sidevalve fan smiley

WW, thanks for the help trying to ease my mind a bit. Everyone (including UPS themselves grin) tells me not to worry. They know what they're doing. Well, I can honestly say, they have been extremely friendly and helpful all the way through (Karsten, if you're reading this, I don't have any sponsors at all grin)

Damm Tiny seeing that kind of hurts  shocked

Short update: got a phonecall from UPS last Friday (yes 4 days ago, one week before SW), my bike had been "misplaced" and had been found in Hamburg Germany!!! Can't even explain how that made me feel, but it wasn't good  cry
Was leaving home early Sunday, not knowing anything else than UPS would try to figure something out, and being in a miserably mood. Had my airplane ticket been refundable I would have cancelled and waited another year sad
Is in LA at the moment, and woke up this morning to an email with good news. Bike is being flown into SLC. ETA Thursday morning grin
There's still hope. See you on the salt grin

Jeeez Ivan, your cutting it fine  shocked
At this stage, Wilso will be at Bonneville before you (he would make a great addition to your pit crew)
The dunny roll Aisin was beyond repair before making it to the rest room (dunny) wall, so there's some more good news for you.
I HOPE your bike gets reunited with you SOON mate.

Thanks a lot guys. Really appreciate it smiley

We rolled into SLC this morning after a long drive from LA only interrupted by a short stop for a few hours of sleep. Didn't have an address to go to or any paperwork, as all papers had been made in the very last minute and had to be sent with the crate. The first UPS we went to couldn't do anything without any paperwork and told us to go another office. Here we where told to go to customs, which we couldn't do, again due to the lack of papers. After a lot of explaining a very nice lady said: I can see this is important to you, so she left her desk, got with us in the truck, and went all over SLC to locate the crate, get the attached paperwork and get us through customs. A couple of exciting hours that helped restore my faith in humanity.

We rolled into Wendover this afternoon.
Sadly, as most of you probably know, to see the lakebed covered with water. So far we've been told the pits are closed until Sunday morning. We'll hope for the best   smiley

Gee Ivan, I think you were kissed on the **** by a fairy  cheers
I can imagine how you felt jumping those hurdles, and I can see how you felt after the bike was back in your hands.
Well done lads  grin grin grin

Ivan:

Good to hear you were finally re-united with your crate. Nothing is easy at Bonneville.

Looks like you will get to run on Monday. On the bright side you will have some time to mill around and meet people before you get busy racing.

Good luck
