Blake: Yeah.. I have two garages (I want a 3rd but they won't give me one ). I actually cleaned the other one a fair bit on Sunday.. I was having trouble fitting the 5 bikes and the trailer in it but now they fit ok


I spent another couple of hours out there this evening... almost put together enough that I can start ripping bikes apart:

I remembered to turn the heater off David


David: this is the granite you and Ben helped me get.. works great as a toolbox work top! Good thing the castors in the lower box are rated to 1250 lbs




now all the bikes are complaining the 950 is getting preferential treatment... they wanna be moved to the warm garage.

Almost time to check the valves

Hey Blake,

I have ONE muffler like that if you want to spruce up your Guzzi a little.

Cheap paint in Denver at Lucas Paints

I'm re-doing my garage and stumbled across this.

The Lucas paints store at I70 and Youngfield in Denver has 100's of gallons of new "mis-tints" for $5 a gallon. I got 11 gallons of premium wall paint for my new garage for $59. The add just went up yesterday and there was still plenty there when I went by at lunch today (Friday 1/21).

Now I need a few more warm days like today to put it up. Happy hunting.

Did your RX8 have a 375 hp Corvette motor in it?

It's Joz man, so you gotta figure a Cosworth V8 or something, not some silly corvette motor.

Do we have to do emission testing on motorcycles?

I got my registration renewel for the 950.

Went to the renew website.. punched in my license plate and got:

Validation Error
Plate Number Entered: 3****J (edited)
Error(s):
Emissions Record Error
There is a problem with your emissions record on file. If you have had your emissions tested within the past 2 to 3 business days, please try back later. If you still encounter this error message, please visit your County Motor Vehicle Office to renew your registration in-person.
Please contact your County Motor Vehicle Office for more information.
