The grammar in the last paragraph in that screenshot is criminal!!

Once this bike is running again, I'll just do like others have done; set the sag, set the rebound adjuster to the middle setting, then ride and adjust to suit.
Think Japanese while reading English.

(My Japanese isn't so good, but my Chinglish is top-notch. I deal in it for a living.)

Well, it's been a while, but I got some good news yesterday...I've been approved for a tidy little sum of money to start buying parts for my bike. Woo Hoo! So, the purchasing began in earnest last night. :-)

Along with multiple purchases from ebay, I'll be patronizing @richlandrick for a rear wheel spacer, SV Racing Parts for some front pads, and Rich Desmond for some fork springs.

Man...it's been a looooong year without a running bike!

That's good news. It's cool to see a phoenix rising out of ashes. Maybe you should name it Fox.

What's the backstory on the Vee...and your accompanying funk?

Awesome, congrats! You should be on the road when the weather is the best. Maybe check the age of your tires...guess it hasnít been that long.

I saw this on Copart this morning. I didn't see anything I thought reusable. You were lucky.
