Well, there's that. Not sure a fiberglass slanket would have the same warm fuzzy feeling though

That would be a itch you couldn't scratch.


Nomex isn't to bad, but after several washings looses it fire retardant ability.

Pulled Jesse's bike off the trailer and it fired up on the third kick.
Rode it out to get the mail. It's new owner is going to be very happy Sunday when he comes to get it.

300 is still on the trailer and is not so happy. But, I bet it will start in 2 kicks. Then, smoke and grumble.

Talk about a change of venue! One day you're on death row, the next day you're the life of the party with 100 man-servants....
