Its more fun to make them yourselves, but its usually way cheaper to buy used.

The reason teenagers are so ornery is so you won't miss them as much then they leave the nest. Plus, if they didn't think they already knew everything (this is the real reason they are ornery), they might not ever leave.

Got to LC about 12:40 and then there was one Guzzi, one sport bike, two GS's and a bunch of those Yankee made cruisers.

The Guzzi leaner has a tempory body for now.

Hey Cleatus, we ended up sleeping in that morning since nobody had responded. Sorry we missed you. The Guzzi Leaner looks nice.

No problem I wasn't sure if I was going to make it for sure as the wife told me I had to go by myself a new recliner.

Glad you guys had a good time and are back safe despite any strawman arguments saying it wouldn't happen.

And on an unrelated now does anyone think CO residents may be leading the rush on 10 round .458 Socom magazines in the near future?
