History I am supposedly the fourth owner of this machine. TRAT member Ravyn sold it to me in late 2007, and told me he bought it from someone in NC. It was originally sold to Gary J. Matthews of Harwinton, CT, in 2004 by Canton Cycles.

I replaced the engine in 2008 (@ 24k miles) after a piece of cinder block tore a hole in the sump at speed on the FDR.

I replaced the front end after a disagreement with a lane divider in 2009 at 36k.
