Thank you Lynda!



Ultra short update:

BLIMY ! It looks like I might actually be going to Speed Week with the bike.

The shipping folks idiots, called Wednesday and told me they couldn't fix the problem at the American end, so
" Sorry Lars, we can't ship your bike. Bye bye"
( after fooling around with this matter for two weeks )
Found another shipper who acted fast and with LOTS of psycho-frantic complications it now looks like they can do it.
Knock on wood.

All I need to do now is finish xxx number of little, and not so little, things on the bike,
semi-dismantle it to get the size of the shipment down,
build the crate, crate the bike, get it to the shipper by Monday noon.....aurrrgh.
Ohh yes, then the small matters of getting the permission for me to enter the USA,
buying an airline ticket, sort out a rental van etc. etc.

More later .....I'm busy busy busy busy !

Willie and I will have to look you up Lars. I love your build and would like to get some pics of you two. If you are in the pits look for the white mailbox. Looking forward to meeting you.

"fans" ? LOL .

I'm afraid you all will be disappointed by the bike.
My bike is a 'looks-great-from-a-ten-yards-distance' whack-job type of bike.

OK: listen up y'all: don't come any closer than ten yards to the bike.
It's radiating Danish Bacon Beams....VERY dangerous ! Stay away ! It's for your own safety !

The same goes for me BTW ( the looks-great-from-a-ten-yards-distance thing, that is ...ha ha )


Hurray!!!  I'll be watching for you at Land's End!!!!!!   cheers   cheers

Lynda
Thanks !
...and I'll be watching for you Lynda

.-)



Don:
 I'm flying in to SLC Thursday night...cheapo hotel in SLC...pick up van early Friday morning
...HOPEFULLY drag the bike out through customs during Friday....drive to the Salt....
...meet up with The Tri-Mac Speedsters Team from Washington state, coming with their blown two-stroke bike and
with whom I'll share camp at The Bend in the Road and pit

THEN

a week "off" and on to BUB where I'll share pit with
a Danish guy who lives in Reno who'll run his Vincent !

Hey what a trip!!!
I can't tell you how exited I am.
Not can't I tell you how empty my bank account is



Willie and I will have to look you up Lars. I love your build and would like to get some pics of you two. If you are in the pits look for the white mailbox. Looking forward to meeting you.
Willie and Sheri Buchta
Thanks !
I'll definitely look you up


Thanks all !!!
Looking forward to meet you !


 Now back to work....need to do like a hundred
no, make that a thousand thing before delivering the bike to the shippers
tomorrow afternoon.
