    Effective therapy. Not cheap mind you, but effective.

    I love your space man. ANd the Katoom. I'm so close to pulling the trigger on that very same bike. Maybe this fall when KTM announces its replacement.


    She watches all the damn CSI shows, which I really have nothing against, but she watches them at ten or eleven at night, then can't sleep. Go figure. Its simple math that any man would understand-

    DVR out of space, hmmm I've never heard of this "Valencia MotoGP thing" and I need space for that goofy fuck with the sunglasses, well, goodby Valencia...

    I like the use of the long dresser as a work surface and drawer space.

    should be going through some changes in a couple weeks. hopefully turning it into more of a garage then a storage space.

    That's a great color on the B, love the fish mouth grill on the 70-72 models also... plus I have a real soft spot for GTs.

    he did the whole resto himself back in highschool. when he gets back from VTech, we are going to go over the garage and make it a more user friendly space.

    Charming indeed and built like a brick siht house. I tried to tell them that this wasn't your normal buy-at-Lowes shed but they blew it off. They thought they could winch the whole thing up on a trailer.:rofl

    The base/floor of my shed was 8X16 shipment skid for a piece of heavy equipment made from 6X6's and 2X6's tying them together. I built the rest like a storm shelter.

    11 hours later they had it tore down to the skid and still couldn't pull it onto the trailer. We had it halfway on the trailer and then backed it up against a tree and pushed it on.

    It's gone and the footing is built and will be seeing concrete next week, Tuesday is planned.

    I'm taking pics and thought I'd post them in sequence when it's done.

    Looking good :clap

    Last of the paint going on the walls and all new lighting is hung and wired. Another week or so and I'll be done! And then, on to the next project!
