Thanks Jerry,

I remembered Don after I sent the e-mail back.  Not sure how I forgot, 
but I've always had problems remembering names.  Numbers?  I can 
remember those for years...  Something to do with being a beancounter I 

I rode Don's ZZR a few years ago when he was here for a rally.  I liked 
it, but it was a little too harsh of riding position for me, thus the 
LSL setup on my GPZ.  I haven't heard from Don for a while, I hope he's 
well and his wife is too.
