I make a point of staying in JC down there. Having a free bed helps.

I was thinking it was rack to hold spare rear tires.

The spare tire rack is a much better idea for SOG.

I thought it was to increase the weight of the bike to make picking it up more like exercise.

Nah. I'm gonna hit it with a water hose. So the net weight should be the same. Can't get the front end too heavy. ;)

Joe was saying something about wheelies Friday as we were heading to Lometa. I decided to show him that the Big Ugly could do a throttle wheelie when we made the turn to the gas station to ask about restaurants. 3 times, just in case Joe didn't see good. I pulled in and asked the fellas who were watching me wheelie down the road for a rec. One guy said either place was good. The other didn't say much. It was the local cop. Ooops. Lometa has a cop? Who knew? He did mention the wheelies. lol

Might be easier to just get a bowl of caliche and dust the shiny parts. That way it'd all match.

Larry. Check Trip advisor. Seems to be good seafood in Freeport and BBQ in Clute.

A protector for your protector. You probably wear two condoms with your girlfriends. Your wife should be proud.

Hey. I put it on myself. That's something. Well, if it stays on, that is. Thinking I can strap more bags to it. Not quite Clampett-y enough.

Did you use red locktite? If not those will vibrate right off.

In other news Angleton is a terrible place to be. So far the search for good food isn't going so great. Not even the locals I'm working with know a good eatery other than Chili's and Chili's just isn't the same without James, a Canadian,and a drive out to smell the BBQ smoke lingering around a closed LC before driving back to Cleburne for Chili's.

I didn't see any duct tape on it, so I'm call BS on the self-install claim. If there ain't no photos, it didn't happen.

To pull off the "China Springs Hillbilly" look, you'd have to get a rocking chair mounted on the top box for grannie.
