    Two right shoes. Wow. That's some funny stuff right there.

    In approximately 2 weeks I plan to make a 2 or 3 day Hill Country run.

    Didn't feel any better than it looked either.

    All I've got done was to weld up some mounts to install a leaning sidecar on the Cali 3.

    I'm going to try to get in some riding tomorrow.

    Hmmm. Can you find the new part on the Big Ugly Chingadero?

    Ah, is it a machine gun mount to eliminate that pesky traffic?

    Aaah. Traffic. Kinda like F'burg on a pretty fall Sarurday afternoon. What a touristy shithole that place has become. Nobody goes there anymore. It's just too damn crowded. ;)

    I make a point of staying in JC down there. Having a free bed helps.

    I was thinking it was rack to hold spare rear tires.

    The spare tire rack is a much better idea for SOG.

    I thought it was to increase the weight of the bike to make picking it up more like exercise.

    Nah. I'm gonna hit it with a water hose. So the net weight should be the same. Can't get the front end too heavy. ;)

    Joe was saying something about wheelies Friday as we were heading to Lometa. I decided to show him that the Big Ugly could do a throttle wheelie when we made the turn to the gas station to ask about restaurants. 3 times, just in case Joe didn't see good. I pulled in and asked the fellas who were watching me wheelie down the road for a rec. One guy said either place was good. The other didn't say much. It was the local cop. :huh Ooops. Lometa has a cop? Who knew? He did mention the wheelies. lol

    Might be easier to just get a bowl of caliche and dust the shiny parts. That way it'd all match.

    Larry. Check Trip advisor. Seems to be good seafood in Freeport and BBQ in Clute.

    A protector for your protector. You probably wear two condoms with your girlfriends. Your wife should be proud.

    Hey. I put it on myself. That's something. Well, if it stays on, that is. Thinking I can strap more bags to it. Not quite Clampett-y enough.

    Did you use red locktite? If not those will vibrate right off.

    In other news Angleton is a terrible place to be. So far the search for good food isn't going so great. Not even the locals I'm working with know a good eatery other than Chili's and Chili's just isn't the same without James, a Canadian,and a drive out to smell the BBQ smoke lingering around a closed LC before driving back to Cleburne for Chili's.

    I didn't see any duct tape on it, so I'm call BS on the self-install claim. If there ain't no photos, it didn't happen.

    To pull off the "China Springs Hillbilly" look, you'd have to get a rocking chair mounted on the top box for grannie. :deal
