looking forward to this.
this one is ready for full Cackification assuming ya want to cack up a twin
My mother in law informed me that they had been laying on their sides like this since last Thursday or Friday but she forgot to tell me!
Do you really think that skipping that first bike washing after blitzing down a dirt road wasn't the actual beginning of the Wee's woes? And I thought you had stopped lying to yourself...
I lie to myself because I am the only one who continues to believe me.
HaPpY BeRFdAy, VeRmiNg!!!
I had the Cack out toda.y for my 55th birthday..
I have the same epiphany every year I was haulin ass east of Colorado springs and that damn bike is still wailing singin a sweet song of the highway....for the first time in several years i am getting a little itchy feet for a trip.....I feel cack needs to go to the skinny part of central america
I have major customizations planned in the near future involving a shopping cart
I will keep you aprised of the cackophonic updates as they arising
to quote willie
It's been rough and rocky travelin'
But I'm finally standin' upright on the ground
After takin' several readings
I'm surprised to find my mind's still fairly sound
I guess Anchorage was the roughest
But I know I've said the same about them all
We received our education
In the cities of the nation, me and Cack......
My current modifications are for
3) neighbor irritant
First the neighbor situation. I moved to Colo. Sprgs and parked my bike in the back yard. yards that have been fenceless since their inception in 1946 immediately sproinged approximately 200 linear feet of fence, go figure? I didnt take it personal until I left it in the driveway out front for a couple days by accident and another 100 feet sproinged in the front of the houses.
ok now i am pissed and combative so I started thinking about my next uglification projects and trip.
first an unwilling donor unit and a milwaukee eviserator.>
the view out the mirrors has always bugged me a little on this bike with my toolbox on the back so in order that i might see the dingbats behind me I installed a "mirror trellis" so i can look out the back better like an old busdriver yellin at a bunch of goofballs....
then like most my hair brain ideas i put the shopping cart storage on the back rendering modification 237.5a irrelevant except for to increasingly ugly myself.....
i have to go now i will be back with more information later seriously
You know your seats torn.
I have a floor mat out of my truck that sat in the back seat nearly unused. Do you want it. It is fuzzy and soft!
It is gray so it should match your theme color.
"I am hopelessly lost and pull over to a street vendor and say Estoy gringo estupido, donde esta autopista dos. Which in English means I cant find my ass with both hands would you help. Imagine my chagrin when he points to the on ramp."
Just came across this RR. Following unsuccesful attempts to contain laughter, the boss drops by my office and asked if I'm ok, told him it was just a coughing / snarting fit.
Patrick McManus, Dave Barry and/or Doug Adams, all or in part, aint not got nuthin' on you Mr. Vermin.
Were's the next Cackventure?
jest between you, me, and the fence post i am contemplating a trip to guatamala next winter for a entirely reasonable pilgrimage.
Quite reasonable. Must be mid-life common sense and rationale settling in.
Welcome to the Rockies.
Saw a guy in Missoula a couple of years ago with an Electra Glide with a full size shopping cart basket (Albertson's style, chrome of course) mounted on the back to haul his German Shepard in. You may want to upgrade to a larger basket and get a large dog to protect your investment. If not a larger basket, there's a lady around here with a pit bull/blue heeler that might be available. You seem to be investing a lot in the girl, hate to see you lose her.
Like all Cack modifications I have invested no more than 20 minutes and a little bit off the life of a sawzall blade. Free shopping cart. I did find a oil sail at the local autozone so I coughed up some filthy lucre to change the oil. Of course they did not have a sale on filters so I left the possible million year old one on.
Cack $2,600 (1998 not adjusted for inflation)
used Stator +/- $100 (I didn't end up using)
Fifteen years of service and somewhere way north of 130,000 miles for under 3 large. mwahahahahaha
Who is crazy now?
"Who is crazy now?"
Is that a rhetorical question?
You were lucky when the bikes fell over they didn't leak oil on your manicured lawn.
Thank you for taking the time to post your adventures!
I dig your taste in music. Whitey Morgan and the 78s just played here two weeks ago and it was unreal. Love the DAC sticker too.
Whitey Morgan is a natural Flint Badass and one of the only guys you can see with a natural peddle steel guitar player.
I woke up from a nap this weekend in a decreasing radius turn about to pile into a bunch of bretheren on high buck bikes only to see this.
1200 miles 3 days. average 50.5 mpg
Vermin: I was terrified that you had gone off on yet another truck-driver-esque tangent. Nice to see you back on the straight and narrow!?!
Live on and proper.
All right, Vermin and Cack are back!!!
Monday just improved!
I have to agree with Shooby, as a fan of Adams, Barry and McManus,
you rank right up there with them!
Looking forward to the endless planning, lies, er, tale spinning and general mayhem of a trip in the making.
PS Are you sure the backyard wasn't the site of some inter-species spooning?

Just stumbled upon this, ride on man! Hilarious.....
