Ya just gotta wonder if that giant hunk was carved from pure chrome billet - & then dipped & plasticized?

1. let them dry out in the spring sun
2. use this on them:

personal hell

Vermin has unmogrified back into ahendepe cube dwelling geek.
Drifter has his own person hell as he devolves back into Mclovin.

4999, 4998, 4997..........



April in Michigan, just like I always dreamed. Some people use robins as a sign but robins are stupid and sometimes show up in late February. I have a better (less attractive) two phase spring trigger. A) Buzzards (the dead stuff thaws and starts to stink all the way to Ohio so they come up here) B) Boston Terrier brown neck. (wild animals have left various and sundry frozen feces scattered across the expansive grounds of my estate. The instant they thaw i look out the window and see a fast and furious boston terrier breakdance in the excrement.

An excellent ride report. As another said, in another excellent, ride report, "These are all entries into the photo album that I will look at when I am old and infirm." or something like that. You and your son put together an excellent album when you cannot go out and "do."

My dad and I did a ride for my college visit. I rode a 74 CB450 and he rode a 75 CB750. At one point, I had a really hard time shifting, lots of false neutrals. Turns out, when I reassembled it, I did not tighten up the shift lever and the shifter splines were wore out. It was late on a Sat eve and the Honda dealer was closed in Des Moines, IA, so we fixed it the best way we could. Disassembled and reassembled using the end flap of a Fuji film box as a shim. Stayed that way till the end of the summer.

I hope that next summer (09), I am able to convince my younger daughter that we should do a cycle tour. I am hoping that she will ride her own bike so that Bon Bon can do pillion (although, I am keeping my eye peeled for the correctly priced Burgman or Silver Wing so she can ride on her own.)

So, kudos on the ride report and your parenting skills. Now, I got to go read McLoven's report.

Hey Vermin,

Well, is the next trip to the big Ak going to be with your daughter?

And if you want advice on your "off the grid" run, check out Wan's run over on Totalruckus.com. if you don't already know about it.

excellent adventure v1.2

Yes as a matter of fact I am taking my daughter. I suggested the route but then thought it might be a skintch agressive so I gave her every possible easier option and she wasn't having it. She has absolute soul crushing resolve and is totally oblivious to pain and suffering so I am a little more afeared of the routine than she is. Cold, rain, black flies no prob! The gristle bares better get some dollbaby repellent cause if they mess with her they are gonna have to file a complaint with the humane society to get relief.

Tickets are bought the wheels are in motion.
