The only thing I would fixate on that long would be a beautiful and naked woman.

Unfortunately I haven't seen any of those out in front me while riding.

At the scramble yesterday there was a beautiful woman taking photo's and was very distracting. It's very hard to miss rocks, trees and turns when your eyes are fixated on something wonderful. The 1st time I saw her, I missed the turn and rode right at her.

High Low,
Just another example of a blindness induced when fixation affects perception.


Worse, most human beings live lives fixated on body, mind, society and events missing that illusion.

Hey, another day in the matrix.

Ride your own ride brother.
Keep looking.

Build report

Today-Ripping and tearing, everything gone on the left.

Tomorrow-ripping and tearing.

Major pieces removed...stove, sink, refrigerator, next will go the propane heater. Plan is to shorten it to just behind the rear duals, build a deck that will haul the mc and double as a lounge area.

Headed for the deserts.

Carries 30 gallons of aqua. Plan reinstall the stove for heat/cooking and buy a cooler.

It is a rough piece but fortunately it comes with the new photon engine that converts sunlight directly into gasoline giving the machine unlimited driving range if the skies are clear.

Funny...............looks like a Dodge 360 to me.........so you are probably going to be limited to a 300 mile range.

Cheers

Yep, a 360 and carpeted.

I pray every day for 15 mpg.
