I think we all know the swing-a-way is going to make it to the Wee.

I hate the idea of Cacks destruction but I'll pony up $20 for a piece and eagerly await the next installment from Vermin

Latest Cackuistion

So we all can agree that the dual handlebars are genius, right?



not so fast earthlings! I was uncomfortable with the lack of rear view on this rig to begin with. When my arms are up on the apehangers and I am slouched down like Marlon Brando I can't see out my standard mirrors. So I put a ton of mirrors on my mirror trellis.

Well bad knews ratlings, when in a dire traffic situration it is like seeing the world through flies eyes. It only adds confusion and visual pandemonium.
My genius idea keeps getting worst and worst.

Then waalaa at the local flea market I found this for $2



Thassright a 1980 Oldsmobile Toronado Mirror WITH A THERMOMETER THAT IS UNAFFECTED BY DIRECT SUNLIGHT. nO MORE FISHinG around for my hottub thermometer while hauling ass down the road.

Of course in this day and age it is all about control so I mounted the included joystick. Have you ever wondered how those mechanical mirror controls work but couldn't figure it out? Same kind of majic that keeps airplanes up? Well I have seen the guts of one and I ain't tellin

AND I LOVE IT!


I can't believe this is for real, your writing is fantastic and I have sent the link to bunches of "A" types that will squirm and then reply as if I am truly crazy!

Keep up the good work! I want more! Totally subscribed

Think you need to try and convince Cal, that his BMW needs a few cack style modifications to fit in when you go riding. He is my father-in-law.

I have seen Cal in action and, while being an excellent scooter pilot while rolling down the road, his short legs will Cack (verb) that bike up just fine in low speed adventures in parking lots. As you already know he is good company around a campfire and a credit to beat up motorcycles everywhere.

Cal has more gross tonnage on his bike than even I do when loaded up for trips.

Now there is an understatement. Boy Scout Motto "Be prepared" (for anything that may or may not happen on this trip, the last trip or the next one combined.)
