I imagine if it was a KLR, it would have had some of those race car hood-pins where you take the entire bit off and place it on the roof of the car eliminating prop rods, supports and hinges!

For those of you that know him from TechDiv...Jerry Decker had a stroke today an is currently at Baltimore Shock Trauma. There appears to be a blood clot on the left side of his brain. I'm waiting on more information.

Whine on!

So today was the first day of the transition back to regular shoes. The plan was/is to wear a regular shoe for an hour and then back to my boot for 4 hours. Lets just say that those words are more easily written than executed...wow was that hard on my foot today!!!! I think I did about 3 hours total in a regular shoe today and my foot is FRICKING KILLING me! More stitches please, ok just kidding. I guess I am going to have to take it a bit slower, I thought I was going to have to leave work and come home today it got so bad. Whine off.

On a more positive note my new rear rack and sprocket guard came in for the DRZ and they look sweet, I will post pictures when I get them installed!

Barrett Jackson Car Auction

So this will be at the (in)famous Barrett Jackson car auction. Should be my next car...
Quote:
1957 BMW Isetta Convertible

Once made famous as Steve Urkel's ride of choice, BMW's diminutive four-wheeler ranks among the more hotly contested classic minicars around, with mint-condition examples running close to $50,000.

"The taxi theme is kind of interesting because these are only two-seaters to begin with, and the only door is in the front," Joy said, adding "this car will probably sell for more than it would cost to buy a brand new New York City taxi today."
