Let the Halloween tags begin....

but you should have some protection from the ghouls and spirits. Like building a home like this:

Charles O'Hara built his house in 1817 without parallel walls because, as legend has it, he was told by his West Indian servant that such a house could not harbor evil spirts.

Thought I remembered it was you who grabbed it. I do remember that Jeff was 'cause he saw it too late.

Flaming doo-doo

I swore I quit this silly game a year or so ago, and yet here I am, sucked into it yet again. Damn. You know, when someone leaves a pile of burning doo-doo on your doorstep you just can't help yourself from stomping on it.

Besides, it literally is within sight of my house........



This is to answer the questions that will follow......



1955 Simplex Automatic. And yes I rode it there, under its own power. All 6 hp.

I was wondering (and was even going to suggest) if you'd use it for the grab.

NICE!!

It is saving hundreds of lives everytime it runs. Nothing like hearing something coming about a minute before it gets there......... hey you pervs, get you mind out of the gutter!

It is basically a 6 cubic inch 2 stroke, with a straight pipe. All that for a whopping 25 mph.

Here is the left side so you can see the "automatic clutch" and belt drive.

That's great and all, but how about a detail or two on the tag?
