Thanks!!!!

I am a new member and a first time poster. I want to say thanks to everyone on this site.

I purchased a 2003 LT with 40k on it a couple of months ago and have been using it as my daily commute ever since. Yesterday I walked in my office after my normal 35 mile commute to beautiful San Luis Obispo and my right leg and boot was covered in fuel. After doing a quick search and checking the bike, I was sure it was a QD problem. Instead of calling the wife and trailering the bike back home, I went the the local parts store and installed a 5/16 coupler right there in the parking lot after work. I have a local mechanic and he wanted 450.00 for the repair. Again, thanks goes to everyone on the site, I would have been stranded or broke if it werent for you. It is good to know there are good people who are willing to help. I look forward to many years of good riding and meeting you all.

That's exactly why I made my membership donation and will continue to until these old bones can't ride no mo'. I'd never have made the mods or maintenance changes myself if I didn't feel so "schooled" by the contributors to this forum. I strive to be a better contributor because of those that have contributed before me.

Due to heart health, the Dr says not to ride under 40 degree air temp. Ugh! Now it is harder to get my 18000 miles a year in just in the summer. Guess that stopped my 20 degree rides now.
