Is that a chinaman or a penis riding the bike?

Motorcycly ravens.

Imagine someone who can draw getting bird talons around a rider/bike/letters, as applicable.

Gotta be a Chinaman. No "dicks" in this group that I'm aware of.

I just realized that there is no rider on the bike. Sort of like those pictures that show different images depending how you look at it. I guess I better lay off the sauce while I'm at work. By the way, break-in seems to be going well.

wait for it..........











"The Flying W's" ! Then our logo could be a big W with raven wings......





















if you don't understand it, look up images of a "flying w" in motocross

Excellent. Just keep an eye on the oil.

Had to do some machine work on a .308 lower this morning, and have one bike on the lift that I'm about to jump on. Once that is done, yours is up next and I will begin stripping parts, power wash it down, and get the engine out of the frame. I am going to pull side covers first just to make sure there's nothing external (and evident) to the transmission causing the problem. As usual, will keep you advised as we proceed.

Have a kitchen pass for Kevin's on the 14th., so see you there. The last time there was for HBN's going away party. You were there too, but I am so terrible with names I forgot. Looking forward to it.

Having raced motocross for ~10 years on the Mid-Atlantic circuit, I know, full well, what a Flying W is......... unfortunately.

Didn't see a response to you question amongst all the logo iterations and stories about sleep deprivation, but, folks start collecting there around 8:00 or so. I "think" that's when they open too. Depending on the weather, they come and go as the morning wears on to noon.

I usually try to get there around 8:00 or slightly later just so I can get a parking place if front I can easily get out of when I decide to leave.

I am planning on going this Sunday. Greg and I had breakfast from their menu the last time we were there and it wasn't half bad. Hellava lot better than the buffet they used to serve up.

Am planning on going, so hope to see you there.

I have the green light to go riding all day on Saturday. I plan to head west (riding twisties of course!) around 0800 (or eariler if you want), spending a few hours riding off road with a lunch break tossed into the middle of the day. Will try to be back well before dark. All are welcome to come along. Let me know.
