It has been extremely windy in the Plains,58 mph yesterday.

My younger son did his Basic Training at Ft. Sill a couple of years ago.
He messaged one day, "Man it's windy here".
I replied "Well Duh... Oklahoma?... Where the wind comes sweeping down the plains?..."
And he says "Yea, I get that... but it Never Fuckin STOPS!!!" :P :P

Haven't seen one of these about for a very long time!

A well-used early model parked outside a local pub:

I would love one of those as a pub run bike.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

D1 Bantam.  May have been the first bike I ever rode.  Not a lot of get up and go.  Just the UK spoils of war from DKW and essentially the same design as the Hummer.

Understatement!

But it's just as well they didn't have much power as the suspension (?) and handling were somewhat lacking.
