Keep your "head down, *** up, cause that's the way we like to..."-2LiveCrew

Seriously, be careful. My sister in law is coming back from there in a few weeks. Don't touch her...

And for the record, I believe your dyno numbers.


Take care.

Any idea to the general area you'll be in yet? I know at least two RC's that have MT.net guys in them right now, including myself. Stay safe.
