    At least they finally got Poplar back to 6 lanes. Looks like you are almost done, but if your projects are like mine I know how you feel. It's kinda like a basketball game, the last 2 minutes takes as long as the whole first half!!

    he'd decided to to shrink the herd in his garage, so he put one up for sell in greensboro, when he went to pick up the cash he picked that up. He's not real good at herd shrinking :lol3


    the day robin & me tried it, it was 38 degrees so it was short test ride, but it's a sweet ride. like a space ship


    now for those of you wondering what i got for christmas

    i got a shirt
    a pair of pants
    a piece of pussy .........

    & they were all to big

    lol, you probably know more people at these than i do.

    last week at fred's i parked in the feild next door, during all that rain, i got stuck. Walked back to fred's, tom was the first person i saw, He said i thought you left, i said i'm stuck, to which he replied i can't help you with that, but come on i know where fred hid his beer :evil

    this week robin was showing how to restore old paint, He was using one of leo's tanks he'd had for awhile. In alittle bit leo said isn't that tank under the bench mine too. Robin looked around and said yea, i'm collecting leo's tanks, don't tell him

    saturday morning was cold cloudy and dreary, but it was supposed to clear off & we'd decided last night to go to the big priate show & or "the great american motorcycle show" down in norcross.

    Late morning i was messing around the basement (shed i keep the bikes in) thinking i need to go back to the house and put on long johns. Then the thought hit me wait a minute i've still got a pair of chaps in here somewhere. Found em, put em on, they used to fit good. I must of rode in the rain alot back then cause i could barely get them around me :huh

    Robin came down in her chaps and brand new used rainer jacket i'd bought her, she held up the liner and said do ya think i'll need this. I laid it across the seat and zipped in linier while i burnt a hole in the arm againest the tail pipe of the bike warming up.:(:

    you can see it on the left forearm

    so we load up the chrome slug, turn the radio up, set the cruise and head south on the super slab.

    We stopped at buford to warm up.

    had my first pumpkin cappocano , not bad
