dear Cackophiles

in case you are wondering at what instant do I determine the Cackification to start on a new bike.

Exzibit A
(waht I would call a provocative incidenet)




my daughter was sitting on the couch looking at me as if trying to remember something. I leave her be. Finally the lightbulb goes on and she says "Oh Yeh your bikes are laying down in the back yard"

I go out back and see two down bikes. Apparently my V-strom slowly let its air out of the rear tire in an attempt to create an obtuse angle with the kickstand. I personally believe there was jealousy involved. My wife instructed the Vstrom that It would under no circumstances be cacked up. The Vstrom became enraged and pulled a murder suicide in the back yard. This ordinarily would not have had me set my tazers on cack (verb) but I looked amongst the detritus and noticed the 7million dollar Ceebailey windshield had significantly bit the dust.

Game on! Ladies and other Protien based life i give

you
CACK 3




tHIS third cackification violates several clauses in my prenuptial agreement so don't nobody tell my wife.

of course I carefully removed the shattered mirror assembly on cack2



And carefully fabricated a replacement

by all means do not do this at home.....this bike is for closed course operation only....





it is nearly always bad for the sun to shine on the bottom of your bike

genesis of a cack

My mother in law informed me that they had been laying on their sides like this since last Thursday or Friday but she forgot to tell me!

Do you really think that skipping that first bike washing after blitzing down a dirt road wasn't the actual beginning of the Wee's woes? And I thought you had stopped lying to yourself...

I lie to myself because I am the only one who continues to believe me.

update

Deer minions,

I will keep you aprised of the cackophonic updates as they arising


to quote willie

It's been rough and rocky travelin'
But I'm finally standin' upright on the ground
After takin' several readings
I'm surprised to find my mind's still fairly sound

I guess Anchorage was the roughest
But I know I've said the same about them all
We received our education
In the cities of the nation, me and Cack......


My current modifications are for

luggage control

B) safety

3) neighbor irritant

First the neighbor situation. I moved to Colo. Sprgs and parked my bike in the back yard. yards that have been fenceless since their inception in 1946 immediately sproinged approximately 200 linear feet of fence, go figure? I didnt take it personal until I left it in the driveway out front for a couple days by accident and another 100 feet sproinged in the front of the houses.

ok now i am pissed and combative so I started thinking about my next uglification projects and trip.

first an unwilling donor unit and a milwaukee eviserator.>




the view out the mirrors has always bugged me a little on this bike with my toolbox on the back so in order that i might see the dingbats behind me I installed a "mirror trellis" so i can look out the back better like an old busdriver yellin at a bunch of goofballs....



then like most my hair brain ideas i put the shopping cart storage on the back rendering modification 237.5a irrelevant except for to increasingly ugly myself.....


i have to go now i will be back with more information later seriously

You know your seats torn.
I have a floor mat out of my truck that sat in the back seat nearly unused. Do you want it. It is fuzzy and soft!
It is gray so it should match your theme color.

Were's vs Where's - who cares?

"I am hopelessly lost and pull over to a street vendor and say “Estoy gringo estupido, donde esta autopista dos”. Which in English means I can’t find my ass with both hands would you help. Imagine my chagrin when he points to the on ramp."

Just came across this RR. Following unsuccesful attempts to contain laughter, the boss drops by my office and asked if I'm ok, told him it was just a coughing / snarting fit.

Patrick McManus, Dave Barry and/or Doug Adams, all or in part, aint not got nuthin' on you Mr. Vermin.

Were's the next Cackventure?

Quite reasonable. Must be mid-life common sense and rationale settling in.

Welcome to the Rockies.
Saw a guy in Missoula a couple of years ago with an Electra Glide with a full size shopping cart basket (Albertson's style, chrome of course) mounted on the back to haul his German Shepard in. You may want to upgrade to a larger basket and get a large dog to protect your investment. If not a larger basket, there's a lady around here with a pit bull/blue heeler that might be available. You seem to be investing a lot in the girl, hate to see you lose her.

Like all Cack modifications I have invested no more than 20 minutes and a little bit off the life of a sawzall blade. Free shopping cart. I did find a oil sail at the local autozone so I coughed up some filthy lucre to change the oil. Of course they did not have a sale on filters so I left the possible million year old one on.

Cack $2,600 (1998 not adjusted for inflation)
used Stator +/- $100 (I didn't end up using)

fork seals?
.
Fifteen years of service and somewhere way north of 130,000 miles for under 3 large. mwahahahahaha


Who is crazy now?
