Hey guys!

Does anyone know where I might find a GPz total wreck?? I only want the transmission.? 

George Donnelly!? Are you still out there?? I wonder if you still have that engine I sold you a few years back.? If so, I would buy it back.

My 4th and (mostly) 5th gears are really in poor shape.? Today on a spirited run up on Angeles Crest Highway, my rear end got sideways and? ol' red almost tossed me off, because while running moderately strong in 4th gear, it came out of gear, went down to 3rd, engaged and that broke loose my rear tire.? Pretty scary.? I didn't think to just pull in the clutch, and now since, that's what' I'm doing.? But!? I really need a more reliable tranny under me.

Can't afford a new bike right now.? If the cost/hassle of getting a wreck and doing the transmission work are too much, maybe I'll buy someone's good shape GPz.

Brad and I rolled into Des Moines last night about 8pm. VERY windy across NE CO until Kearney, NE then it got hot and humid! Other wise uneventful ride.?
Thanks again to Charles for spearheading this event! It once again was a Fandango of great friends (new and old), great roads and great times. I can't think of a better group to ride with!!?
Fast recovery and quick healing wishes to Jeff and Chuck! ?
I will be working on collecting pics from every one in attendance who wants to have *all* photos (and a couple surprises) from everyone burned onto one or more disks for your convenience. I would be happy to do that, just send me your pics on a disk along with your snail mail address and I will work on that in the next month or so.?
