I'm getting so excited, I can hardly see straight
The deal is a go, this old girl will be living with me shortly:

...I got the last of the borrowed heated moto gear this afternoon, played dress-up and everything fit. I leave for Denver Thursday morning, got me a one-way with a buddy, figure out a place to spend the night then buy her Friday morning, and ride her over several mountain passes back home to the Western Slope. :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Plus, weather looks like it might actually cooperate and not dump too much snow on me during the likely 8-hour adventure. :D
