Shakedown; Pain & Heartache

First Ride: I got the bike almost all put together last weekend and decided that I should take it around the block. Bad Idea! I got way to excited and forgot to tighten the caliper bolts!! Carnage!

After luckily missing any traffic on the busy cross street in my neighborhood due to lack of brakes, (with my ol lady on the back) we pulled back up to the house to access the damage.

I decided to make a few changes and take a little more time getting it road ready.

Second Ride: I had worked a little harder and with the help of my buddy James I made some good changes so I figured I was good to go, more problems. I still have a small amount of bugs to work out including that ol S&S Super B carb I'm running now.
