One of those satisfying moments....found a bolt that fitted.

You know you need a particular size bolt and no one has it.

Today I went to my local fastener supplier and needed 4 bolts 5mm longer than what I had. It needed to be stainless and I needed 4 spring washers to go with it.

Well guess what they had exactly what I needed, came home and fitted up right away. Length spot on for the job. Needed them to fit my new mirrors. Bike is ready for a test ride.

Just thought I would share my satisfaction and for once being able to get a job done without the drama of incorrect parts and inability to buy what you want when you need it.
