    Thanks GatorGreg! I have time off from the college where I work so I thought I would take the opportunity to complete this dream.

    It was built for me by Jeff Hoffee and I adapted it to fit on the VFR. It's carbon fiber!!!

    Check out this "How I did it" short video:

    Totally. I am a lucky person to have the time to do this. That is why I want to share the ride.

    Got to watch it on the tv with the android box streaming utube. Really enjoyed the show and looking forward to more episodes. Any chance that you'll be making it up to Canada? Saw a few more vids you put up as well, what did the problem with the clutch end up being?

    Thanks for watching Zombie! Probably will trickle into Canada at some point but no destinations planned as of yet. Regarding the clutch - the bike sat unridden for a long time and the clutch plates were frozen together! The previous owner got the bike it fixed for me. Here's a video on it!

    Joe- Thanks for sharing your story! It's awesome! It would be really cool to meet you on the road. I'm sure you'll be criss-crossing our paths this summer.

    Sure thing. Would you like some gigs booked? I have contacts at some local bar and grills that have live music frequently. A coffee shop around here does also.
