Re: How does ........

The Charlie moniker is a long story.
The name was given to me by an Okinawan friend who could not pronouce Curtis. After several attempts (it isn't easy for Japanese speakers), he said: "You know Peanuts, Charlie Brown? Okay you are Charlie." It became my nickname and internet handle. (The irony of Asians calling an American "Charlie" was lost on them).
(Hiromi says that the Peanuts character I most resemble is Pig Pen. )

I have received lots of congrats and best wishes from members of this board, (that'll teach me to post my bday. )

The posts and PMs kind of surprised me, Thanks gents, appreciate it.

I have a spare extra bearing and shim in my sidecase.
I have a spare fully assembled and rebuilt final drive in a box ready to ship.

Training wheels.... hummmmm, guess that's next!

Thanks for the best wishes (and your concerns for my increasing infirmities)

Re: How does ........

Happy belated Birthday Curtis!

Just bought an extended warranty to be able to continue using my bike instead of trading it in again. Need to buy a house now ...

I hope I get to see you soon!

I have negotiated all turns successfully!
