Same for poker runs. Using lime. One spot of lime for a R turn, two spots of lime for a L turn. Of course that doesn't work quite so well if it's raining like h-e- double-hockey-sticks.

Then again, it NEVER rains at the TSMR. blush

Don't forget the good ol English "drop off" system where a rider stops at every turn to flag the way for the rest of the crew...
Not sure of the exact particulars but one could always ask Shaun...

bike is in a gaarage til I can get back here to pick it up and CC and I are in a motel hoping Paul will pick us up tomorrow.

nothing like going to the tsmr without a bike.

Maybe mr.mike will bring me something to ride.


And here I was pricing TriSparks for the TSMR Norton! Maybe we better talk when you get here.

Nobody can say you didn't try! Start on the Norton, it goofs, go home and get the Applicance, IT goofs, so get in a cage and come on. That's dedication!

Why do we fool with these bikes anyway .... ?

Do they still do that?

I borrowed a tie from another guy in the dorm once, and when I took it back, his door was shut so I just hung it on the doorknob.

His roommate came in late, saw the tie there, and spent the night in the student lounge sleeping on a vinyl couch. Turns out his buddy wasn't even on campus that night ... !

I quit clip-ons and learned to tie a tie by my grandad when I was about 12 years old.

Between church, work (for 20 years we had to wear them every day), funerals, weddings, I estimate that I've probably tied a tie close to 10,000 times in my life .... !

The yellow thing is an OIF Firebird with that wonderful ball-ramp clutch. The ball-ramp is balls up.

Yesterday was my Bday so I was allowed to be cryptic. I am now younger than my youngest child.

Hey Windy...speaking of bearings, is there a source of wheel bearings near Shady Valley to fit the front spindle of my 69 A65? Not to mention I have yet to get the retainer off. Would be nice if we could manage that in yer shop...
