Yes.

Update: My account shows the funds have been returned electronically as of late this afternoon. All's well that ends well.

When I read this, I imagined that Mr. Pickup Shipper misjudged his next petrol stop somewhere in Kansas, and peaked inside your tank to see if he could "borrow" some go juice to limp to the next truck stop. Likely not, but after reading the full ordeal, that image flashed through my head.

Hoping your "old friend" is well on the road to rehab...

Still much work to do before I get settled in and do some real riding on this RT, but it's nonetheless so nice to be back in the saddle again.
