    A soldiers ride.

    My buddy is a mortar platoon MSGT in Afghanistan, and will be returning to the US of A soon. He asked that I get his Turner ready to go for when he hits VA soil again....I am too happy to do that for him.

    Pop quiz, can you name the missing parts?

    Can you name the strong, light and expensive parts?

    Cool mojo. Here's to wishing your bud well and a safe and speedy return.

    Looks like you're missing a seat, chain, disc rotors, and the light strong expensive parts start with the "FRAME" Nice bike.

    Thanks to your buddy for serving and to you for getting his bike ready. He'll deserve the best when he gets back. Hope he gets back safe and maybe gets a shot at Usama on the way out.

    There's plenty of light and expensive, but imo there isn't alot of strong there.

    Did you get a Subie or what?
