So, I met a guy last friday at the M/C shop, has a white and purple PD, it's for sale...... I'm trying to raise the $$ for it, my GSA is less than 2 payments away from being paid off...... do I do another loan?

It is rather unfortunate he doesn't want to barder, it's not like he needs the $$, I could build him a nice door for his house that would be worth far more than the bike

Why can't some folks see a good trade when it stares them in the face?

Yeah but would a door be worth far more than a GSPD TO HIM.

He's restoring a '52 airhead, and has no worries about $
But, it does seem it is not worth a PD to him, or I would be making a beautiful door right now instead of "enjoying" the views in town and posting on ADV

Paul said that during the Rally he never once changed the oil or the air filter.

Not to say that nothing went wrong: One time, a crash put a hole in one of the carb elbows. Ever heard of that one? A two inch hole. It sucked in half the desert and sanded off the top end.

Another time, he actually got a battery that was manufactured backwards internally. + was - and - was +. Fried the whole system. Ever hear of that one? :Ear


This time, we are going to the finish

I know! I never did either, and he said he's only twice heard of it, the second being heard while telling the story of the first.

Thats kinda what makes rallies so fun, they are like LIVE TV you just never know

No water over there (well apart from round Waggawagga at the moment. It's that high to keep it out of the bull dust
