I need a blowtorch. Anyone have one I can use for an hour?
If you bring it to me, I'll even let you help me change my sprockets. (The bolts are red-loctited on---easy to remove with heat, impossible otherwise, and my blowtorchs are all at my friend's house.)

Hmm, If I had a blowtorch some beer and a fire proof suit, I think this could be entertaining.

Too bad I don't have any of those. Sorry Skip.



On Another note, I think I have found my new favorite online MC shop. I Order a tire Sunday night and it is supposed to be here tomorrow and that is with free shipping.

Hmm, just remembered my bicycle pump didn't work so well last time I needed to air up a tire. Might have to go to Wally world.

I have a small propane torch you're welcome to use. I ain't bringing it too you though!

If you want to borrow it, let me know before 6:30 am - that's what time I leave home for Richmond.

If we are guessing I would have to say MC Superstore as I have experienced this quick free shipping in the past.

Not mc superstore. Twice I have had refunds not processed until I called and complained. Three weeks is too long to wait for refunds.

Competition Accessories is who I ordered from. Tire ordered Sunday night arrived today with free shipping. Also the price was one of the lowest.

Son and soldier KIA

It is with heavy heart that I must report the loss one of our friend's son.
Jan Callahan lost her son on Sunday . He and his comrade were killed by a roadside IAD.


Marine Sgt. Sean T. Callahan
Died April 23, 2011 serving during Operation Enduring Freedom

23, of Warrenton, Va.; assigned to 3rd Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, N.C.; died April 23 in Helmand province, Afghanistan, while conducting combat operations. Also killed was Lance Cpl. Dominic J. Ciaramitaro.


Some know Jan Callahan at Morton's BMW in Fredericksburg Va. She is a mechanic and service writer. My heart goes out to Jan and her family. Keep her in your prayers.

Blooch, sorry to hear about that man. Please let us know if any collection is being taken for the family, I'd be more than happy to donate.

R.I.P., Sgt. Callahan and thank you for your service.

And so it is in this journey we call life.

A baby is born...
And a hero lays down his life.

Ewan's journey on earth begins...
And Sgt. Callahan's journey on earth ends.

To each, I pray Godspeed in your journey.

Sir & Lady Sparks, may you have wisdom beyond your years...
And Jan, may you find peace which transcends all understanding that it might guard your heart and mind in Him.

Let's be sure we remember SGT Callahan this Memorial Day. To few of us actually know someone who has made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. The quote, "Freedom is not free", actually does mean something.

RIP young warriors.
