hutchie is starting off with a positive reputation.
Thanks again. I put SS brake lines in last year after the original rusted though. Now I would feel a lot safer with a dual master.

As well you should. I have experience a broken flex line in a single circuit MC, fortunately at low speed, but it's NOT a fun experience, even shutting off the engine in gear with a manual transmission will not stop a brakeless vehicle traveling at >5 MPH. Transmission parking brakes are also less than useless for stopping. You are completely helpless, all you can do is steer and hope you don't hit anything or try to decide what you will hit.
