Got the bird out the garage. Still need to get that gen2 rear shock on and setup but I must say, the new tires combined with a working stabilizer made for a slow speed dream. Bike turns in and handles much better. Thanks @c10 and @fallenarch. To top off a ride I had my good buddy show up in his 1 of 1 restored top flight 65 Corvette. Now it needs to cool down more so I can get out again.
