    Sounds like a plan. I shall endeavor to write one up, and will certain link it here. I doubt it will be a patch on the original though.

    My name is Moonduck and I approve of this idea.

    What do you need fork seals for when there is no oil in the forks? GLWS.

    Ok, so, are we refering to the Barber Museum of totally awesome motorsickles? And does the Cack still have the totally lost electrical system? Since I am old and now retarded I might maybe consider this mission.

    Cack is back in the hood I had to bring it in to show the new bike how to behave. Kinda like dogs and kids. . All I remember is she said something then I said something and then she said why don't you take that to Detroit so I did.

    Sorry if it has caused confusion

    That bike should seriously be donated to the AMA museum.

    Good golly, but if Cack isn't a true adventure bike I'll eat a bucket of broken glass! Have loved all of these ride reports, Verm!! You show us what CAN be done, if there is a WILL to do it! Praise Verm!

    So... Cack is in Detroit and needs a pilot to Birmingham? That's a lot easier. I'm guessing what would normally be a 1 day ride should be scheduled for a week on Cack? Is this open to non-journaling types?

    I was thinking about Cack's place at Barber and I stumbled across a photo showing the layout of Barber....where would Cack fit in?

    Not near the front door. It might scare the chromosexuals away and hurt ticket sales. All the hardcore would abide it tho........

    As I am entirely mythological I will need mortals to pester/inquire at the AMA museum as to the possibility of CACK residing there

    You get @GaleBT to do that for you. You may be mythological but he is a force of nature.
