    Yup, as most of us are. Curious as to why it sat? Regardless, good to see it resurrected.

    Oil filter housing gasket, radiator and starter all died within weeks of one another; I hadnít the money to fix it, as Iíd just left the hospital I was working for. Iíve been traveling (as an ICU RN) for the last two years, so lacked the time andófor that matteróthe nerve to take on this project. Not to mention that it took me four or five failed attempts before I found a successful way to remove the starter. As with so many things, I set aside the money, bought the parts, and made up my mind that I could do it; then, I did. And Iím ever so grateful to my spouse for covering other duties (childcare, dog care) so I could devote my time to fixing it.

    In the interim, I had bought a 2000 Honda VFR800 so I could ride with a girlfriend and her husband; I used it to commute ten months of the year, and rented cars for the rest. Enterprise and I are on a first-name basis.

    Wow, heck of a story. Bummer they all went out like that. Well as you said, this maintenance will make it last a long time. Separately, ICU nurse, that's pretty intense. My respects to anyone who does that. GL getting it all done.
