    Finally got the doubler in, the triple shifter built, 383 running and the 63's installed out back (been busy /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif.) Took it out the Reiter Road for a little shake down run. No problems except I broke the back window out backing down the embankment in the picture. The shifter worked awesome, just need to come up with a boot (all three levers come up through the original 203 shifter hole.) I may have the shifters available if I can source the parts. I want to thank Stephen for the Doubler. If your on the fence about whether or not it is worth the money, quit kidding yourself and buy one.:D For those of you with good eyes, I know I still need driveshafts, they are in the works. Let me know what you think and if you have any ideas on improvements. /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    If any of you in the western Washington area know of a cheap rear window, send me a PM. Thanks! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    This was my first trip out to Reiter in about 3 years. I checked out BigBlue's webshots, it's pretty cool to see what some of the holes look like when their not covered with 2 feet of water. I think we're either going to Highrider (Sultan Basin) or back to Reiter on Nov. 30th.

    Dom-I talked to Jon today and he's going up next Sunday, probably riding as a passenger though. Give me a call at the shop to get the scoop on where and when. I have to get a hold of Doug too.
