    This all reminds me of Zappa's 200 Motels and the somewhat manic ranting wail of Captain Beefheart. RIP both of them... anyway, delicious reading!

    :clap on taking out the youngsters to see the world and provide them with some alternative thinking to the modern hive mentality.

    Apart from that - i am severely impressed by the functionality and apparent longevity of your bike.

    Ride on :jump

    After a layoff, my brother took up truckdrivin with Swift. His career was short lived when he backed up a truck to a loading dock.
    Who was to know that some silly person parked his totally restored 64 Chevy convertible Impala (or some such thang) over in the corner of the loading area where it was hard to see. :lol3
    The damage was considerable. Swift and brother parted ways.
    He found his path back to a cubicle until he retired.
    He is now one of those old dangerous people on a BMW.

    Don't need no stinkin first aid kit. Saved lives with nothing more than a T-shirt...A roll of duct tape, would come in handy for some injuries.
