In my quest to help create a better world I have been assisting in cancer research for the past 30 years. Tuesday the results of my work were formally published. It's been a long slow grind but knowing that I have help mankind on a larger scale makes it all worth while. Thank you all for your support.

Some sacrifices are just worth it.

My new (to me) ride!

Ok... the lemon was just out of gas. petcock turned to reserve fixed it. You can get 150 miles on reserve on this bike.

Anyway, rides light and pulls wheelies in any gear! kinda scary! 7.3 gallon tank full to 2.5 gallons keeps the weight really low! I've got the smaller one if i change my mind!

It's an Acerbis marked 6.6 but I carefully filled it a gallon at a time. I used my wife measuring cups from the kitchen, so it's accurate. I got 7.3, and yes, it all comes out without tipping or anything.

I was riding it on the street last night and it defaults to a wheelie... I don't even know why it has a front wheel!

Trust Fano to derail a perfectly good derail.


Now back to my stuff. While waiting for the Mayan revenge I loaded up the
