Just found out today that I probably won't be on the pilot roster for the 29 next year. Just as I got qualified this year my job as a part time instructor for my company went away and so did the scheduling flexibility with it. I guess they didn't think I was flexible enough so........

At least I got to buzz my folks house with a B29 :-) !!!!

They did offer me a flight engineer position, but I don't see how the scheduling will work for that so I think I'll just help 'em with maintenance.

Upside is I can do more bike riding! West Coast Loop is back on the stove!! And SLAP!

Make sure your kids are all in with getting the hardware. If they aren't with the program and don't follow all the instructions they'll end up with nasty looking straight teeth! I won't pay for my 16 yr old granddaughter to get her mouth squared away cause she won't brush consistently. She can pay for 'em herself when/if she grows up enough to take care of 'em.

Good luck!

yep.

My parents struggled to put braces on me... 6th grade I think.

I never wore the retainer, it hurt.

and now 700 years later, my teeth are crooked and screwed up.. I understand where you are coming from.


Sorry about the crew change on the 29 too, but hey, it was a once in a lifetime thing, and you DID do it!

Motion Pro will have the longer cables you MIGHT need. But raise your bars first and then decide. And I still have the spring you need. You do not need a different shock, just a stiffer spring.

Got some like these on the DRZ - cables were fine. I have ROX risers on the GS. You can rotate them for riding position.

Thanks for the word of advice. Fortunately, the girl that needs them the most is also very responsible. We'll start with her and go from there.
