Or - Krevins DR350 and I'll bore it out in my heated shop over winter.

OR I'll get the CB750 going and put the sidecar on it.

OR rebuild the Matchless G12DL.

OR do the valve job and various seal replacements on the ZX1100.

OR sit and get drunk and watch old episodes of "Then Came Bronson" and "Big Train".

One of those anyway.
Hey, is that Barn of yours large enough for a 30' Trailer?????

And lets face it, that Matchless will never run.

on a side note, I didnt have to go to Lincoln for goodies, the wife made an Apple Betty last night

speaking of "Then Came Bronson", can you get the original movie with Bonnie Bedelia on the beach?

Yes. Well......it might not be now. It would probably go in at a slight angle easily enough. If I were to allow such a thing to happen.

I hate to admit it, but it's a strong possibility. However, who knows what bursts of enthusiasm I may have?*

Apparently so. It looks like the whole lot is available on amazon, but not netflix, which is slightly annoying, but not terribly so.

EDIT: Actually it's only the movie pilot that's available, and likely has the domestic version of the beach scene - ie Bonnie in a wedding dress rather than splendidly bare chested, which was the alternative scene shot for furin type markets. Allegedly.







* I do. They tend to amount to looking at it and saying "I really should do something with that."

Safetybob and I just went out for burgers. It was fabbo.

I'd post a picture of said burger but I was too busy eating it.

I sure wish I didn't have to work this afternoon (here I am hard at work on the forums), cos it's gorgeous out.

Gorgeous only begins to explain it

I've been out hunting for a new tag and actually found 4 or 5 good ones. So many tags, so little time

I'm in Jasper Cananda in a laundromat listening to some kid throw a hissy fit in what I can only assume is french.... how to describe Jasper, it's like Stillwater after an accident with Gamma radiation then someone made it very very angry.

The ride so far is all sorts of fun. Good food abounds. The road options are limited, them Canucks got a strangle hold on alternative riding options.

If all goes well the wife and I might be able to swing in for the trip to Arv's.

They are still upset about the great grainbelt one-way road incident of 2008.

Glad you're having a great trip! If you have any last minute Saskatchewan / NoDak questions, let me know, been thru that way a few too many times.

As a hipster you should be all over that, because it's ironic.

So to continue the BS over here..... I found that my Belstaff has lost some of its "waterproofiness". No big deal, it is showing its age. I may do the Nikwax treatment this winter. Speaking of which, hte Nikwax worked well on my mesh riding pants liner, however, I did find out the pockets on that are not sealed......Wet Wallet

I was glad I had ziploc bags stashed in the pocket of my not all that waterproof gear. I am also glad I donned the power ranger rain suit. Overall I stayed dry, and found a whole TWO DOLLARS stashed in the rain suit pocket. Yay!
