Garrett has finally started up his sleeper RZ350! Aaaand there’s yet another unexpected setback. My air compressor also crapped out, but its replacement arrived, as well as some new parts for both of my projects. Along the way, I talk about seeing the new Suzuki Katana in the flesh for the first time, and we gush about how much we like the new Triumph Rocket 3 R.
