So true. And not sure what her reasoning is on that. It takes me a little while to center things up on fork or stem changes and once it is good I don't want to mess with it. She even went as far as to strap the front wheel to it too.

Not to mention off road spots and snowboard stuff in the winter months...

Nicely done inside of that 109. Looks like it works well and love those lights.

My ex was German and couldn't build anything. She sure didn't care much for my rover addiction. I'm just saying the pictures looked trumped up to make it look like she's doing a lot more than what she probably is doing all by herself. I'm pretty sure someone is helping her out.

Michele, Let me know if your shop is near Naples or Pistoia. I like to check out the Defender goodies if possible.

Shop? What shop?

I'm nowhere near Naples, but if you need help for something, let me know and I'll see if I can do anything.

Thought you are working at that place that designs and sells the bling suspension and interior parts.
Work brings me here (too) frequently and I am always up for an excursion. I spend time at Reggio Calabria, too if that is closer.

Oh. Got it.

I don't "work" for those "people" anymore.
Said in the most polite way, because this is a family forum.

Back to German girls, bikes and Rovers!
