Anniversary

Oh crap forgot it was my BMW's one year anniversary today. Yesterday we broke a little over 13,000 happy miles in the one year.

All this talk of these cool minis has got me seriously thinking about trimming out one of my MR50 Elsinores in some lights & all the trimmings to get it on the asphalt and gravel. There's an unused bridge under the flywheel on one of those. Wouldn't be too tough to wire it up. Always wondered what one of those would look like completely chromed out, including the tank and then dress it out in mini S/M fashion....

Going to be under steam before too long!

If you know a kid that needs the 5occ for a monkey bike, honda 50.

Count me in for the little bike ride Tim. I just installed my Radio Shack rectifier so I'm ready to roll without worrying about burning through a battery every month.

Way OT here, but you guys are a diverse bunch...

I called a plumber on the recommendation of a friend and long story short, he wants to use Sharkbite fittings to do my repair.

A. I can do that myself.

and

B. Isn't that a cheezy way to fix copper?


Am I being overly picky, or is this guy a hack? It's not a flat-rate job, so I don't think he is trying to maximize is profit by getting out quick.

Sharkbites are pricey,but easy,and quick. Unless you have good ol fashion pipe sweating skills(like my pop). I have used it going from copper to PVC and PEX.

I'm less worried about price, and more worried about quality. I have been burned one too many times by water leaks. I just want to know if that is an acceptable method.
