The Jan 3 4 5 show is the best one. I hope to attend it. The cancelled December show was primarily Dealers and Manufacturers.

Sorry for hi jacking the thread Deep. Hope you are still ok.

Thanks again for all the kind words.

Just have a sore left side and a bruised leg. It could have been a lot worse, and I'm glad it wasn't!

Bikes are an easy fix. Now the main nut attached to the bars is harder to repair ( I ought to know) . At least the steering nut was not too banged up!

A side note: barons highway bars. Saved gator a bunch of damage.
Have beaten them back straight once already tho tho last time chrome was scraped off.
