This thread may have the most well-chosen title of all time.

It started as a wash job, right?

Of course, many are getting sucked into the mission creep...

I stopped by sakurama's thread to just check out the motor swap and exhaust build, then ended up buying some amazing and magical velocity stacks. Integrating Chris's beautiful stacks have led me to discover a couple more "shortcomings" to my present bike setup and state of tune. So, naturally one thing leads to another and the next thing snowhawk jockey knows, he too is suffering from the chronic affliction. "While I was in there, I noticed that this didn't look right and had to attend to it..."

My buddies with clean bikes tease me about deferred maintenance. I don't get how cooking up new ways to thrash a perfectly good OEM design, gets referred to as "maintenance", when it is just a bit of mission creep.

Hey Mortimer!

See you tonight at the big bike show? We got nice weather and I still have one bike that runs so I'm headed down.

If you think I'm bad with bikes ill post a shot of our new house later...

Tonight, I already have a ticket for this: http://events.r20.constantcontact.co...of6yop302b3cfc

Probably not. I have a pistol match Sunday so my personal time has been accounted for. BMW Tigard is only 3 or so blocks from our house now though. We're actually going to take the kids tonight as they love motorcycles and then I'll stay later. Take notes for me tonight. I'd like to ride that this summer.

Here's what I do to a house. This is the day we closed:



and then a week later:



But I promise this won't be a two year affair before we can move in. I want to move in more than anyone but some stuff you can't do while you're living there. That whole upper wall was taken out because I didn't want the sheet rock to protrude a 1/2" beyond the beam - that may be tweaky but it would bother me. Way too many dumb things were done to this house that need to be fixed but it will be worth it.

If you're curious I've started a garage thread over at Garage Journal. How many simultaneous rebuilds can I take on...

I love it. This is what I always end up dong to my houses. This is how my current one ended up after our fire, July of '12. Note the burned up 660 Rally still in the foreground. It literally stayed there and I built the new house around it.

Oh, that hurts. I guess the 660 was a total loss?
