I saw them in DC last year, same set! The venue sucked as the music had such an echo that I ended up not enjoying it at all.

Good stage set-up though.

Had a few mechanical issues on my 950 this past year while my wife and I rode to Key West. First we performed a flapendectomy. Smart, we kept the extra length of hose we ended up with. Good thing because the bike kept spitting coolant at me while the bike was at speed, not a problem I could duplicate at idle in a parking lot. Wanted to see how much I was losing so we came up with this: :loll

I've also made a few ADV rally shirts.

I made this shirt design for Two Wheels Only (RIP) but GT never got to use it before he closed up shop last year.




My brother liked it enough to get it inked on his arm (shading to come next).

And a few more shirts I am working on that are still in the process of being finished.





Drew this one for a women's shirt design for my wife.


Someone earlier said they liked repurposing things. I do, too. This is painted on the front of a washing machine panel.

I've made a few of those too. It's cleanup and maintenance that is the tricky bit.



Some really cool projects in here

Here's a little fireplace mantle A/V thing I cobbled together.

So my mig welder set up didn't have to keep looking like this;



I built a cart;





Then I built a welding table;



I got a second welder, so I took an old hand cart like this (this is a new one I bought on sale to replace the one that got used for the project)



Welded on some brackets & reinforcements, primed and painted it red (it was the same blue as the other cart - no Millers in my garage LOL);



...and now it's;




The shelf is 4' deep and is more of a loft for storage;



Next project will probably be a walking beam ATV trailer (still thinking that one out).

I made this rear cargo rack for a trip which held my sleeping equipment, tent, and a small cooler.

I just bought some 1/2" square tubing, welded it together, fashioned a way to mount it, and finished it with a powdercoating job.



It's great to get leverage onto the bike if it takes a nap.

Thanks! Yup, Two Wheels Only's thing was the campground had a creek running through it, and the owner over time had decommissioned bikes set in random places throughout. It kinda became a TWO signature. Hence, the worn out look and vines and plants protruding through.

I got this really cool dual live edged Sycamore plank for Xmas from my father in law who put a nice wax finish on it and it has large circular saw blade marks across it's top. I made (ok I assembled) some shelf brackets from 3/4" galvanized pipe I bought at Lowes and installed it yesterday and did some wire management. I'm not sure if this is applicable to the thread or not.

Would you please explain "dual live edge" to a non-wood worker?
