If I get to move back "home" from where I am now, I'll probably throw some suspension on my BMW e30, and hopefully finally work on my /2 sidecar rig.. then, of course, tinker with anything else that catches my eye.

First I need to finish my kitchen that is currently completely disassembled. After that it's either get the lighting sorted on the Yamaha TT500 I got from my friends estate, or start on my R80ST when I get the frame back from being straightened...

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

Gonna pet my buddies dogs, and hope they don't tear my arm off.....




Drink some "Guinness"...of course..."It is good for you" as you fellows "across the pond" already know....




Make my donations to the tire industry....




Rack up some Desert Miles on the "Old Wing".




Keep "Mrs. Hacker" happy....



Above all....live each day like there is no tomorrow!

I am going to do my best to not drag home any more poor orphaned motorcycles and try to finish off some of the others that I have been tripping over for the last couple of years.

Probably won't happen though.........................either way.

my winter wrenching probably won't start until January,right now I'm just ordering parts.First is valve cover gaskets,maybe new clutch plates and all new cables. I've owned my bike ( 82 Honda CB900F) for seven years and never replaced the cables or brake lines so now is a good time.Did the front forks and seat cover last year.Its never given me a moments trouble but the brakes are spongy and new pads aren't the answer.

Talking TX winter plans

For most of our "winter" I will ride and enjoy the non-100+ F temps.

On the few days where there is a ice storm or slickness I plan to work on my 1971 CL350 project. The poor Honda has been in bits for the last three years and it is about time to get it together again. The $10,000 question is as what will it emerge? Stock is out since the mufflers are totally rotten.


1971 CL350

Sad days for you guys. Our winter has gone - not that it is nasty anyway (8 degC min). I am able to ride all year round. So summer riding begins.

Busy with a resto on a Y13 BSA which is taking much cash and time.

If I want to get anything at all done, I'm going to have to keep fighting the urge to snap up some of the great "end of season" deals on used bikes I keep seeing around here.

One of the posh ones with a heater that gets hot and real windscreen wipers then? Very flash!

I love landies. I learnt to drive in an RAF series 11 land rover. Chasing across an airfield to collect the glider tow lines. Great memories.

Yup, plastic slightly padded dash, synchros in all forward gears, the definition of luxury. On top of that it's a deluxe so it's got the fancy seats with extra seams for falling apart, and the rounded front lip on the bonnet (ooh la la). As for the windshield wipers I'd almost prefer the old mechanical ones. Lucas pops in when you least expect him.

I'm hoping that this winter we will finish what has turned into a multi-year project.

Let's see. I have charcoal sticks, gel handwarmers. It will be this then:

Riding, and then some more...

In between mounting acquired stuff: new crashbars, headlamp grill, sump guard, and replacing all foot rubbers.

Then, more riding.

Riding every day when the roads are snow free and the temperature is above about -10. Sadly this means about three days a month between December and March.

Rebuilding the calipers on my Water Buffalo and getting it stitched together for eventual sale.

Rigging up a multitude of semi-permanent camera mounts on the Eldorado so I can inflict yet more crappy videos of an old git taking an old bike to the middle of nowhere, on an unsuspecting public.

Fixing the wiring on the Guzzi 750S so that I can have both lights and ignition, not one or the other....
