    Yeah, the John Deer bike is a bit funky, but I am always interested who did it and why.

    Reason I do not like OCC bikes, pretty or not.

    I like art but would rather see innovation by a poor person working against hard odds who gets up & going anyway.

    As I see in some of those "There, I fixed it." pictures. LOL, some are really stupid especially out of context, the plywood squishing the economy car, just bad thinking. But as a person who had to move a jeep with only 3 spark plugs in February one time, I got'er done. Was not pretty but it got done.

    Anyway, just trying to fight a little 'elitism' this morning....

    Me? I'm ready for a local brew!

    The wife and I are headed to the Hog Haus to take advantage of Happy Hour(s) and to see what Dickson Street looks like without all the vroom vroom.

    If anybody wants to join us I might even buy ya a round or two. We'll be there starting around 2:00, probably on the balcony.

    I know I've posted this picture before, but since we had a Deere theme going..... My brother built this, shipped it to England where it won a lawn mower race (both a drag race and around a track). It averaged 45 mph on the tight oval, and went 65 mph on the drag. The driver said there was lots more throttle left in both races, but he chickened out for fear of flipping on the soft ground with narrow wheel base.

    AdvanceAutoParts.com came through again, today. I ordered a trailer hitch and wiring kit for my newly acquired GMC Safari AWD Van. $105.10 shipped to my house. Was $140.98 before I used a discount code that I found online.
