    Hey Doug,

    How bout a picture of the new dirtster? You made any new mods or are you following same game plan as the one you are leaving in Europe? Took my bike out a couple times lately and my neighbor got a sportster - made me a little lonesome for mine - the I rode the vx again and was happy with my beast.

    Enough of that though - how about more adventures digging through red neckistan...

    God bless you brother :clap

    Did you guys know, that it seems no one has done the Trans America Trail on a Harley?

    Thats just UnAmerican!

    my biggest problem, is when I get home, I'm so busy working on the next thing, that I sorta lose interest in the previous one.

    And again, I do apologize for that. Im gonna finish the c-ball one tho. I promised I would. Luckily, I didnt say when.....

    I'm hardly one to claim a great mind, but, we're thinking alike anyhoo.

    Last year while drinking and watching E-bay I saw an ST-3 Duck motor going for a song, some kind of X-mas sale . So , I bought it.
    Then I wondered , What am I to do with this motor ?
    So , of course I think, Off road sidecar.
    Then I start looking for parts and it starts looking X-pensive.
    So, I buy a whole bike, that runs and proceed to put 1300 miles on it and listen to negative stuff from my "friends " when I tell them it's coming apart to be transformed into a DP sidehack.
    Then a goofball turns in front of a woman , she nails the goofball , his Kia swats down my Duck at a gas station.
    Then I collect a settlement from the goofballs Insurer and continue to gather sidecar pieces with no more greif from my friends.
    Happy ending ? At least a happy begining.

    Doug, Doug, Doug....

    I'm greatly disappointed in you! How could the man who rode an Indian in the Cannonball and urinated on The Factory ever bring himself to ride a *cough* Harley *cough* *cough* across the TAT? Call up them boys at Spirit Lake, IA and tell them you need one of those fancy new corn-fed Indians with the Thunder Drum engine for a special record setting project.

    (You should also tell them you'd be more than happy to replace Mike Wolfe as spokesperson as he's kind of a tool.)

    Don't forget that he's the guy who rode a Panhead around the world as well.
