2 Years?!?

Two years since I posted in this thread. New dedicated run has been:
- Thurs, Modesto, Paramount, Ontario CA
-Fri, Ontario to Continental Divide NM
-Sat, Cont Div to Tucumcari, through TX and OK panhandles (hwy 54), to Greensburg KS,
-Sun, Greensburg to Hutchinson KS, swap trailers, then retrace my steps.
-Get home Tue.
-repeat

On vacation and taking the bike to Palo Alto tomorrow (Mon) to be taught how to restring my compound bow. First ride other than to/from work since I got the bike back on the road.

Good for you Pat! Enjoy the time off. Which bike is back on the road, or are both of them?

Hey Pat, good to hear from you! Although I'm guessing you just drive by Fresno a couple of hours ago....

I'm still alive (suprisingly).
Been living in AZ for a year now, still a truck driver for the same company.
Ironically got recognized for "1,000,000 miles accident-free". They put a decal on the tractor proclaiming such. I asked they wait until my wrecked truck came back from the shop, lol. Some idiot passed oncoming on 2-lane highway and nearly hit me head-on. He lived.
Had a rogue gust of wind blow my parked "E" over onto some rocks and shattered the fairing.
So, looking for a square headlight Pacifico fairing. Wife contacted some one on Ebay selling fairing, bags, and trunk out of Ashland, OR. If that's a forum member, that's me inquiring.
Anyway, just checking in. Still have both XS's. LG just sits there non-oped.

Pat, I have the fairing motoman gave me years ago. If you can get close to Santa Cruz area, it's yours! Needs the mount area fixed, but with today's epoxy should be easy. I'm going to be moving to Idaho in less that two months, and it will go to the dumps if someone can't use it.

My Wife found a Pacifico fairing in good shape in Colorado. $200 and free shipping.
Previous owner(s) cut and drilled a lot of holes. Guess I'll be getting good at welding plastic.
Then to repaint the bike. Fairing, lowers, side covers, hard bags and trunk. Then there's the headlight bucket, seat cowl and rails for the OEM option.

The Pacifico is a MUCH better fairing, IMHO! If you've never ridden with one, you will notice the better top end and fuel economy over the Vetter "barn door".
