Why I spent so much time on my garage!





Over 35 bikes, and lots of real work done.

The garage is not done yet, but it IS functional!

Jim is that a home made wheel balancer next to the Harbor Freight bead breaker? If so where did you get the tapered wheel bearing cones?

I love your space man. ANd the Katoom. I'm so close to pulling the trigger on that very same bike. Maybe this fall when KTM announces its replacement.

She watches all the damn CSI shows, which I really have nothing against, but she watches them at ten or eleven at night, then can't sleep. Go figure. Its simple math that any man would understand-

DVR out of space, hmmm I've never heard of this "Valencia MotoGP thing" and I need space for that goofy fuck with the sunglasses, well, goodby Valencia...
