    Really... we have a Rocky sighting here?!?!
    Is that not like someone saying they seen the Sasquatch, Yeti or Loch Ness Monster!?!

    This is my second summer on my Rocky TT, Rocky Shims in my PMTs, Rocky Risers, and his recommendations re new 2014 rear shock and Progress Spring, loving it all.

    We did meet Dan at Dayle's Work Party last April, and we did have a Sasquatch from Canada show up, but Rocky couldn't make the trip up. And that does remind me that I do need to pick up Dan' shift kit for this winter's tune up.

      Sure enough. Checking the member list, he just joined our little group today. I've never had the pleasure of meeting him but I sure missed his insight and advise.

        Hi all. Like TinyTim says. Rocky and Dan are good people. When I was at Dayles work party two parties ago I did the rtt and rocky risers, sorry I did not do the shift kit, maybe next year. I also did the progress mono tubs, what a big diff in the ride. Since then I have also installed the Penski rear shock. What a big change in the ride. I am impressed. Joe in Redding

          Oh no! We're all doomed! Rocky is just going to drag this forum into the ground with his solid support, mechanical expertise, and lack of snake oil fixes from shade tree mechanics.

                      Well, you might want to seriously consider the shift kit. For pretty much all of the time I've owned Gold Wings (22 years) I have had to ride with my left toe pointed downwards because of getting tangled up in the shifter. I had already modified the shift lever to get a shorter throw but still fought the clearance thing. I had researched buying the linkage from a vendor, but was not totally sure of what I'd get, so I just got tired of the foot thing one day and went home and ordered it from DHS. Dan will do the mods for you by you sending him your linkage or you can buy the kit and do it yourself. 35 buchs I believe. So anyway, after the thing laying around forever, this year I installed it. I can not begin to explain the difference it made once adjusted. I am no longer conscious of where my left foot is and I can ride my wing like my other bikes. My foot is now under the shifter where it should be and I do not need to wrangle my toe under the shifter ever again. What's that worth? Oh yeah, it does take a couple of hours to install.

                              Hey Rocky, I got the speakers ordered, but they still haven't come in yet. They were out of stock and said they should be in after three weeks. Well, that's up so I should be seeing them soon.Can't wait to see if ;you and Tim know what you're talking about!

                                    What speakers do you speak of? Front, back or all of them and what type of sound system are you running?
