Questions......

Do they even have fire there? Where does the wood come from? Is Coopers opening a location soon? or mabe Salt Lick? Do they have sauce? What about the BBQ thread?

Head's been replaced and tranny re-attached to engine. Just need to replace a couple front seals before putting bike and car together.

Had a thought today. Some say bikers adopt their bikes, some say they own them. Most motorcyclist are really in the foster care business. We let them live in the garage. We force them to do things we would never ask of ourselves and like many foster children (sadly) we abuse them while they whine at 10k rpms. And there always swapping out lol.
