    love all ya'll :D

    I will be back out playing again.. just a lot of things to sort out in my life again.

    Right now my plans are to use Hunters LC4 as my daily rider (with modifications by Cogent dynamics due to short person syndrome), put the sidecar from the XS project on the F650 , use the WTF as my play bike and dust off the Morini. Plus I have to sort out the "estate" - if you can call it that.

    Anybody wants to rent a spare bedroom?

    It sounds like things aren't so well for the moment. Good luck up there.

    You have my deepest condolences. I never got a chance to meet Hunter. We always seemed to just miss each other.

    Damn photobucket pretty much ruined this thread... oh well. I am slowly moving some of my old pics to smugmug, so you can look at them there if you are at the end of the internet and really really bored (I am not going to fix the old links)

    While waking the pits I came across a guzzi that looked very familiar. It's Joe's aka the Guzzi Doctor, the guy that sold my the hack.

    Joe did build the engine for the only guzzi hack racing at Barber

    Laura aka @wawarides is amazing!!! She offered me her bike to to take a trials class.... turns out they just randomly split the groups and went to an obstacle on the trials course. Not quiet my level :lol3

    Still I enjoyed playing around and getting the feeling for it

    Did you remember to say hi to Graham for me? I see you had him for an instructor. He builds some beautiful trials bikes.

    Actually, I talked to him several times during the weekend.

    Lynn had a Honda TL125 for a couple years. We called it the widow maker.
    That bike broke more people than every other bike in the garage all together.
    First she tore her acl when she cased it on a rock and put her foot in a hole trying to save it, I crashed it while wearing shorts and somehow got my leg between the front wheel and the exhaust and got a bad burn on the back of my knee.
    Another friend did a whiskey throttle in the woods behind the house and broke an arm.
    Another crashed and got a finger in the rear sprocket and lost the tip.

    Every time Lynn saw one at Barber last weekend she made the sign of the cross and ran away.

    Hey, don't go hatin' on TL's. All that raw horsepower just waiting to be Turned Loose. :lol3 I bumped this one up to about 134cc's but am getting ready to put the old motor back in it. Don't like the extra compression when kicking it. I think I'll treat it to a Sammy Miller exhaust and a Uni 2-stage filter.

    Silke, you were a natural! I love trying to entice people over to the dark side.

    I have never sweat as much in the month of October as this past weekend. Ready to head for the hills this coming weekend.
