    THIS.

    I could have gone there a couple times, but I also want to respect the invites etc etc. I’m also very jaded to fancy cars, cuz really they’re all just old cars. I work on this shit all day.

    I’m sure it’s a neat experience though.

    I have the same problem at shows, I don't know if I get bored or overwhelmed. See something on its own and I get excited. See 100 and not so much. Now if I could try a few out that's completely different.

    Yep, best summer I've seen up here in 42 years. Hope you had a good one too.
    But I did not get to ride as much as hoped for. Just busy as hell all summer. Things are winding down a bit now.
    Should be able to start posting some build pics soon. The RM125 is up and running plus there's another cool Suzuki that showed up.

    Cool photo DiggerD. Those air tractor AT-802 planes just look so bad ass on the Wipaire amphibious floats.

    No doubt I always wanted to build an old Pawnee or airtractor into a bush plane

    That's cool, must be way fun to fly one. We've had a ton of wildfires this year, several too close to home. Crews from all over came up to help us out.
    Tell him thanks for being here!

    T-250.jpg

    I'll get a new thread going soon starting where I left off on the RM125 build that began at the end of the RD400 thread.
    The T250 showed up mid summer and it was very complete and original but needed a lot of attention. Going to be a sweet little scrambler when finished.
