I wouldn't change a fucking thing; I've lived hard, played hard, and I ain't done yet. I've paid some severe penalties along the way, but the rewards have been so much greater; even if for just have participating in the game of life with utmost abandon. It's not who rides the furthest in a day, but rather in a lifetime. CBA member #1, IBA #31845 and very proud of both.

Brackets arrived from Garauld. Beautifully welded. Beautifully re-powder-coated, even the reference bracket. Installed yesterday. Repaired bracket fits perfectly. Fuel cell properly mounted. FJR ready to ride.

Status: APPROVED WITH MUCH THANKS.

I'm thinking you might want to post the name and contact info of the "Welding Shop" up so we might, if we get bored or pissed off at something, <_< contact them and comment on the quality of the repair they provided, and maybe just maybe, they will try to improve the services provided to other customers. Yeah! Thats it! Come post it up, you know you want to! :yahoo:
PS Nice repair job! Garauld, Very nice!
