    Yes I did, I was there last summer on a 6400 km scooter ride. No bears were harmed on the ride.

    I feel like this place either used to be a bar or should have been a bar.

    Mrs. Whiskeygut at the world's largest Bowie knife in...wait for it...Bowie, Texas. In case anyone wonders about the number placards clamped to our windshields we are participating in the "Motorcycle Grand Tour of Texas" and this is one of the 50 stops.

    Betcha a nickel he tells you it's to put under the kickstand in soft dirt, even though he appears to be parked in soft dirt. WTF do I know?

    You ask a lot of questions, but hey...knowledge is power! My head hurts.

    Lee, those old F-4 Phantoms bring back a lot of memories. A flight of four of those beautiful birds helped my unit out of a real jam about 50 years ago. Here's a crappy photo I took back in those days.

    She might be part of the Davis-Monthan AFB boneyard these days, but, please be assured, she was once an eagle.

    Long story. That license plate has been around! In 2007, I rode to Alaska and carried that old license plate with me to hang at the Signpost Forest in Watson Lake. If you have ever ridden to Alaska, you know that there is a lot of very soft gravel everywhere that is not paved. Well, it so happened that I stopped the Wing in one of those soft spots and the kickstand sunk in the ground necessitating me to lift the heavy bastard out of the gravel. That folded license plate has been my back-saver ever since.

    My brother worked on F4s in Vietnam.
    He went to work at the Yuma Proving Grounds after retiring from the Marines so he still works around neat stuff.
    Thanks for serving Mike.
