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.

Like I said, we were having some fun. Good, clean, legal-ish fun.


Mike. Enjoyed it. How long you gonna be around? Might try to get something set up with TXjames and the nephews. Maybe run the roads west of you down to Lometa, San Saba, and Llano. I think you'll like it. Well, if we don't all end up in a fiery ball.
