Keep this up and before long I will have a nice new Gold Wing.

They're spendy though, those DRZ400s.

By the way, I'm meeting Get_Bent at the Stockholm Pie Company at 2.00pm today, if'n anyone wants to meet there. Bit of a depressing cloudy day, but the choice is either start repairing my oven, or go for a motorbike ride.

Fuck the oven. (figuratively, obviously).

You're going to be face palming tomorrow when you realize that you need an oven to heat up the savory pies that you brought back from Stockholm.

I won't be bringing any pies back on this trip. I might bring BBQ back though, from some BBQ stop or other.

I keep seeing Maker Spaces opening up in other cities and have been hoping one would open up in the TC. So, today I see in the Make newsletter that The Mill in Minneapolis is closing. Didn't even know it existed. Looks like some great equipment including 3D printer, laser, CNC plasma, CNC router plus basic woodworking tools. Bummer - I can think of shit I could make with that equipment.

Point is they are having a meeting Wednesday night to figure out how to move forward. If anybody here is interested in adding their 2c info is here. Meeting info is down in the comments.

KLR drivers: just think of the farkles you could make with that router! Plywood side cases, maybe some nice red oak crash bars. We're talkin' high end stuff, not the usual stuff from recycled pallets!

I forgot how good Q Fanatic is. They have increased the size of the restaurant - I vaguely remember we discussed that. Most excellent. *burp*. Now to eat some of the pie that Barnyard had me pick up.

Their menu looks reasonable too. I have not tried them. Might have to fix that this weekend.

The ride back along the river road from Champlin did not suck either. Hey Yarnbard, if'n you go to Q fanatic next weekend, I'd be interested in another trip there. It's fabbo.
