yeah i can't wait. i'm having a shop do all the work, so i'm waiting on them. it took a month to get the wide tire kit in from custom valley, they're located in Canada. my bike set in their shop most of May, and they started on it about the last week of may, beginning of June.

i brought them the new front wheel and rotor, so they were going to start on the front end. they said rear fender was being painted yesterday/today. so hopefully not too much longer. i'm itchin.. bad..
