    Hi ,

    I just removed the rear seats today , and it occurred to me that without that extra weight I may have more of a nose-down attitude than before . Imagine that , as I get fitter my 80 is losing it's fat ass as well *rofl* .. ahem , so the question I have is this . If the 80's rear does come up some , will that affect the brake proportioning ?

    So far it feels pretty normal , and I wonder if that is due , in part , to the fact that the brakes are stopping a little less mass ...

    Those seats aren't that heavy and I wouldn't worry about the proportioning valve.

    So how's the luxury man cave? Hope things are well with you.

    Rick ,

    Thanx for the input . I still lack a dining room table , so I'm heading down to Toronto to pick up the oak table I grew up with at my folks place . Thought without the seats I'd have a better chance of fitting them . Other than that things are pretty much the same ... though I've never eaten so healthy *G* Tons of fruit , veggies .. even got out the 'ol wok :p Cut the bulk down to 215lbs from 230 . As soon as my powertec rack arrives , I should be back to top form ... 8)

    Drop me a line , and let me know how the house is coming ...

    Cheers ,

    T
