    I know, schick. My wildflowers on the ranch are just beautiful. Removing a bunch of big deer and our beneficial rains have just made a world of difference.

    In other news. The little Harley is undergoing the knife. New gofaster pulley (maybe 135 on a sporty?), wrapped headers, and oh, yeah. Replace all of the exhaust studs. Two of four were broken, and another one broke while he was removing it. Something about running it hard. Moi? Whatever do you mean? That's how it got to the shop so while it was there......


    Hmmmm. Maybe some bar-end mirrors, black-out and cut-down the windshield, race handlebars, and a K+N. I've got a lead on some scuffed plastic I can put a heavy coat of flat black on. This thing is coming together. It won't be long until I have it completely un-rideable and un-saleable. Like everything else I own. A man needs a plan.

    Oohh!! Maybe a leather Corbin. Maybe in a snake-print. ;)

    Pretty good. Still hoping to get 4k on it. The rear was wanting to bend the edge knobs over in high speed turns. Took a fair bit of work to run with SOG that day. Wasn't thinking about exceeding the speed rating. Oops.

    Will reshoe with Tourances for México in May. It'll be all paved go-fast kinda stuff.

    I am thinking that it would be very bad for me to show up at TAC. I had already planned to be at THC Rally that weekend and I would hate to let Trip down:deal:evil

    Yard..No thread here now..Used to be the official Texas ADV Rally.But then there was a great schiszm in ADV. Much moaning and nashing of teeth. Many were cast forth from the Asylum. Even the ADV Mods left. It is a story that cannot be told here for fear of banishment or lightning from above:eek1 Another forum was started. Determined to let their free spirits reign. A gift of blood bequeethed to the doomed. From the ashes like a phoenix so doeth it rise:grim

    Poetry man, Poetry. I think I will be free at least one day this weekend, any recommendations? Obviously beyond the usual, "go $%^& yourself!" sort. :D

    I'll be there if you do it then!

    You're gonna need more than BBQ to recover from a house full of teenagers.

    Head's up people. My daughter passed her driving test today, so use extra caution on the roads in Tarrant County. :deal

    The last owner thought 6 pound feet of torque meant push it tight with your feet! The bad part is they are milled to the engine at the factory
