Guess who has the COOLEST Dad at school ???
Ah ha! my first acknowledgment from the Plaka. I have arrived on ADvrider at last!
Cold Spring Harbor is right near me on the north shore. (noth shaw in New Yawker speech)
Actually what you are making fun of is the Brooklyn american-Italian NY accent. We have at least 3 didtinct accents that are all called NY accents. Woody Allen talks with the Jewish AMerican accent which is totally different than the Brooklyn one. Think of Achie and Edith Bunker from Queens NY. Then there is the older aristocratic accent that Rockerfeller had which is more like a Boston accent. Lastly there is the "Lon Guyland" accent which is different all toghether. But to me the Down south accent is far more strange. SOmeone taught me the plural of "Ya'll" is "All Ya'll". Funny.
Went for my first longish motorcycle road trip in the states last week down to North Carolina. Waitress asked me if I wanted bread at the local "Fats" restaurant. I said sure. She came with some kind of deep fried doughnuts with no icing, and a tub of some kind of fluffy butter that I was supposed to apply to these grease fried dough balls! I nearly barfed. And man, was I not used to how slow everyone moves!!! I walk down broadway typing emails on my iPhone faster than people jog down there. Nobody is in a RUSH! OK you are right. I am a product of NY straight through. I prefer fast and rude far more than slow pleasant hospitality. But it was a fun place to visit and it was strange having so many people be nice to me. Of course that just made me think they were being sarcastic.
And yes I mention you and the Silent One in one sentence! Despite your differences you are also similar in that you are not affraid to say what you really think. I respect that even if some think it rude. Rude doesn't bother me.
That's it. I'm heading out without tools or spare parts for now on!
The real test is the HOT kindy teacher that talks to you as the COOL ( single ) Dad afterwards
I was about to ride into that storm trying to get home. So I stopped to pun my rain gear on. Sure enough, I just skirted around it.
Sign me up for some of that ...
One slight problem, anybody got a cute kid I can borrow ...
Boy are you going to get flamed with that statement!!!
Obviously part of the language barrier pom (limey) / yank ...
The sole purpose of the cute kid would be to act as a decoy to snare the kindie teacher.
As soon as the snare was sprung the brat would be returned to the parents, regardless of whether they wanted it back or not ... hope that clarifies the comment/situation ...
I am guilty of using my daughters as chick magnets ( but hey when you are a 24/7 sole parent you need all the help you can get ) ... It did take me awhile to train my youngest to look for wedding rings ....
Another beautiful day in the South West
My latest project bike was finished today, many thanks to Ray Peake for all his hard work on the bike.
Very pretty indeed!
Might I implore you for a couple closeups of some details? Left front brake, left petcock, left swingarm bearing cap and if you have one, backbone w/ tank off showing wire routing on the dual plug setup.
PS, if you ever come across some, check out the /5 non-reflector turn signal pods. Also check out the early 100RS wheels w/ the blue pinstripe on the rim.
Consider rotating the rear brake arm a toot or two so the lever is at right angles to the actuating rod with the brake off. Ideally, it is just at 90 Degrees as the brake pads first touch down. I filed the parting lines off my aluminum levers and polished them out---just on the outside where it shows. Rear brake, Shift and Rear brake arm. This took surprisingly little time. <1/2 hr. ea. Then polished on a buff wheel in my grinder. I don't know if I'll be keeping them polished but it sure looks cleaner without the ragged lines. You have the kinda ride that invites people to look close...
Jaw dropping ... Was talking to Ray last week ... he said he had finished up a special project ... I am pretty sure he doesn't have any extra tanks like that sitting around .
I have an original 1977 Spoke wheel R100RS in my collection I will be restoring the blue pinstripe spoke wheels on this bike in the next few months.
This project bike started life as a 1981 R100/7 T, it is fitted with /6 wheels with new wider rims and Stainless Steel spokes, due to the lack of rear clearance a set of F800 front brakes were fitted over Mono Series brake disks (modified from 4 bolt to 5). A mono series wiring loom is fitted along with new later model switchgear.
So if you went with a Mono harness .. did you up grade all the electrics to a mono ???
Also with dual plugging .. did Ray go with one of these
I think you need your own build tread on this beauty .
We installed one of my own dual Hall Effect trigger Full Electronic Advance Red Centre Ignition system, a 450 watt alternator, Heavy Duty Diode Board, High Output voltage regulator.and Nippondenso Starter motor.
Yes those are the coils Ray Peake used.
We should talk business soon then
Here's my airhead before I owned it, my buddy had a little electrical issue on this day. We were pleased to see the it fit in the Element.
