Major disturbance in the HDDC today?

Did anyone else feel a major disturbance in the HDDC this afternoon? I think something happened, but it wasn't me. Anyone care to fess up?

Hey, hey - congrats to you and Raffy.

And I gotta say, that pic of ole Toad's newest kin hiding out in your garage is a wonderful post that predicts finer thangs comin' your way, Bob. Great news - just great.

Thanks guys.

The "delivery" ride was skippered by Bob (Just Bob) Rasters. Thank you Bob!

I took it out for the first time today just to see if I remembered how to ride. No drops! It sure feels good to be on two wheels again.

My challenge is up shifting with a semi-working ankle. I will try to adjust the shift lever to see if that helps enough.

Then... let the farkling begin!

Cheers!

Congrats on the great new ride Bob! Now to work on riding, eh? Slowly but surely is probably the best strategy, if you can stand it!

Thumbs up Re: Major disturbance in the HDDC today?

Congrats guys!!!!!!!!!

Raffy, looks like the Duc has a GS "beak"? I always knew the beak was for aerodynamics.

Glad to hear your recovery continues Bob.
May you enjoy trouble free miles the rest of your days.

Nice Duc Raffy. It looks like a blast to ride.

Bob, it couldn't be nicer to see that picture of your new LT. I know you'll get many trouble free and safe miles with it.
