Morning ladies. I spent the night off shore with my broke helicopter waiting on a mechanic to come back out and fix it. Wind is 30 gusting 35 so working in that will be fun. I went to sump the fuel this morning on the platform and my hard hat(the customers hard hat really) blew in the Gulf. Later

What kind of broke did it do?

Losing the hat in the wind is always better than losing the chopper in the wind.....

thats neat Wayno.

are you calling it BMW wheel like, because its a single sided swing arm? or the spoke configuration?


I put 60 miles on my new rear tire today, about 80% road, 5% mud/grass, 15% gravel.

tire grips good, its noisier on the road than a tkc80, but im am thinking so far that it grips better off road.
it also follows ridges in the road, havent had that happen in a while, and it caught me off guard.

Kenda Big block put on rear at 88,784 miles.

we will see how long it lasts.

I worked on my canopies for baseball season, washed some of the windows in the house (inside and out), and had a short ride down 71 on the Hardly to stretch its legs.

Feel sorry for me?
