As most of you know Megan and I were hit by a drunk driver about a month ago. Megan had just bought her first motorcycle ever prior to the accident. She had been polishing it up for hours and practicing in the local parking lots before her safety class begins next month.

Well I am very proud of her for getting back on any bike much less her own. She is still practicing but I made her ride the bike home after 2 hours of practicing the other night. She made it home fine but when we got home she didn't like the mirrors on the 96 Yamaha Virago. So I had a set of M109 mirrors that I was able to piece together from the accident to put on her bike. So when she went out to make sure her bike was still upright due to amount of bikes that have fallen over in the garage lately (on the M109 site) she noticed the change I made for her. Let's just say there was a happy ending!!!

Ted's is the best! If anyone ever comes to St. Louis you have to try Ted Drewes Frozen Custard.

They do appreciate the little things. I did the same thing with my wife's S50, she liked the stock mirrors from my 109 better than the square ones that came on hers. So on they went. Also found out that the mirror arms on hers were the same as the 109 but longer, so she also got a set of mirrors that didn't look like they were bigger than the bike.

Glad you two are back riding again Ben, and she must be a tough gal to go through what you guys did and still want to get back on a bike. :bigthumbsup::bigthumbsup:

Take care, buddy....

It was just high enough to keep me from sliding off the back but short enough to show off the "Tramp Stamp" tattoo! :joke:
