Speaking of Dollbaby......... at least Drifter got about half-way through a ride report. Thought he had the old man's chops too. Did DB ever get one started???

1) try to get the bible edited to have the word needle changed to St. louis arch.
2) Secretly try to use genetic modification to breed futuristic microscopic camels

Potentially devisive Rant over

Of course, that could be said about hundreds of lines in this great ride report.

No title

This all reminds me of Zappa's 200 Motels and the somewhat manic ranting wail of Captain Beefheart. RIP both of them... anyway, delicious reading!

on taking out the youngsters to see the world and provide them with some alternative thinking to the modern hive mentality.

Apart from that - i am severely impressed by the functionality and apparent longevity of your bike.

Ride on

Re Truck Drivin

After a layoff, my brother took up truckdrivin with Swift. His career was short lived when he backed up a truck to a loading dock.
Who was to know that some silly person parked his totally restored 64 Chevy convertible Impala (or some such thang) over in the corner of the loading area where it was hard to see.
The damage was considerable. Swift and brother parted ways.
He found his path back to a cubicle until he retired.
He is now one of those old dangerous people on a BMW.

The littlie was right, though... even a small first aid kit can be of use, if not to you then, maybe, someone else.

Ok, I'll return to the cheap seats and continue to enjoy the show.

Good luck and happy travels with Cack

Cheers

Don't need no stinkin first aid kit. Saved lives with nothing more than a T-shirt...A roll of duct tape, would come in handy for some injuries.

As the proud owner and meticulous maintainence medler of cack I can assure you I have no idea what they did with the fork seals.

On the alaska regional deal a most rightous bro informed the hardee fellers that he rode his honda Sabre up to prudhoe bay with no fork oil or seals NO PROBLEM. I hope this mellowed out the situation but I doubt it. My buddy bruce rode his 1985 hog from 1989-2004 with no fork oil.

Tap tap tap tap thrum thrum thrum thrum, yawn, yawn, stretch, look at watch. Waitin for the first sign of life from the north is like waiting for you 16 year old daughter to come home from a date.
Through this whole thread I had thunk it was the sound of my cat tossing up a hair ball.
