    In case you want to get all modern,
    the twinkies are pretty reliable bikes. Alta Lake Camp.jpg

    Still needed to make the Bako run..... Dice got the nod.....
    He's turning out to be my most reliable junker.....

    While I was gone..... Dr. Jason fired up Hondo!..... engine sounded good..... he ran it for a short time.......
    It would appear that the trans is the culprit..... it's the original one..... never been touched!
    I think the trans will be getting a visit from the Spanish Inquisition..... find out WTH is going on..... but I don't know when to expect them.....


    Anyways..... I'm not as bummed about Hondo now..... this is actually good news!
    However..... I've been thinnin' about getting Hondo a younger brother..... maybe a late 90s Dyna.....
    Hondo would handle In-N-Out Burger runs..... hanging out in the booth at Born Free..... short trips..... Banquet runs..... Presidential Motorcades.....
    The Dyna would handle long trips..... and other duties as required by the needs of the company.....

    Dr. Jason said it best..... "Hondo is too cool not to have."..... I tend to agree!.....

    Lots to think about..... too soon to make a final decision.....

    You ride the new M8 bikes yet? I don't want to make you a four decade time traveler, but they're pretty awesome.
