    Yamaha TW200.. the swamp donkey

    If you ever get away from the beachbum sticker covered look on the tank, please consider painting it back red and doing the twin headlights. Thus facilitating the perfect look for adding this logo: The color scheme had me picturing this as it was being built:

    I'm BAAaaack

    Already making plans for Barber this October. Looking forward to doing what I want to do, instead of what I have to do. ;) My bikes are in exactly the same condition they were, when they were sitting outside Kiley's garage the last time I was there.:rolleyes: As soon as we get the roof fixed on...

    I'm BAAaaack

    I can't wait to see how well I fit on a variety of bikes now that my hip geometry is correct. I'm already in less pain and have more mobility than pre-surgery. Working out at least twice a week and curious to see how good it gets. ;)

    I'm BAAaaack

    I knew you wouldn't be able to resist the allure of the Dirty South. :D Thanks for keeping "the lights on", so we had somewhere to return to.

    I'm BAAaaack

    "Hello my freaky darlings." As you know, it has been a couple of years since I graced these (virtual) hallowed halls. Kelly and I have been taking care of my Mom, who had emphysema and dementia, for the last few years. That had become a full time 24/7/365 job for me in the later months. She...

    Isn't that what machinists do, stand around and eat and wait on machines to finish a cut? ;D That was a quote from a coworker's little brother. He said he couldn't be a machinist because he would get too fat. lol

    My favorite brand of mill! The headstock pivot/mount is much more sturdy than a Bridgeport.

    The "I deconstructed my fingers real quick" thread WARNING: Gore Pics

    I really wish that I didn't know exactly how that feels. :o After the stitches are out, I highly recommend "Bio-oil" massaged into the scar tissue a couple of times a day. ;)

    DO THE TON Mama Tried #8!! Oct 6-8, 2017 in the Dirty South

    I tried to text you on Friday the 8th to let you know we won't be able to make it this year. :( Between Mom being in and out of the hospital, the new granddude coming a couple of weeks ago, and us finally getting around to remodeling the bathrooms to be handicapped accessible, the only thing...

    Finding three tenths of a louzy second.

    It looks to me like there is no correlation between your reaction times and your 60' times, or E.T. for that matter. That leads me to think there is something screwy around the launch, maybe clutch slippage. p.s. Nice reaction times. (almost all anyway) ;)

    Too Much Technology

    I like ABS, fuel injection I can take or leave, anything else is just a crutch for not learning skills and limits.

    VT 500 Ascot? (and a possible package deal)

    I have always liked the V-twin Ascots. They had the street-legal flat-tracker thing going on before it was a thing. :)

    4eyes craptastic trailer resto-mod

    The trailer worked flawlessly on the way to Kiley's and back. And the paint job looked a lot better than it had a right to. ;D

    4eyes craptastic trailer resto-mod

    It became immediately obvious that the existing fenders would not be wide enough to cover the new tires. But it worked well enough to pick up Jonathans new-to-him SV650. What some of you know is that we got his SV on one of the days between my lowside that broke my wrist, and the day I...

    4eyes craptastic trailer resto-mod

    WOW :o I didn't realize that it had been this long since updating this thread. I used the trailer around town for a couple of years, picking the bike up whenever it got "temperamental". BUT I wanted to use it to tow my two bikes to Barber, and I figured the little wheel and tire set would...

    I have stupid-high arches, and the Velcro tabs make them easy on and off. Plus I can cinch them down on my non-functioning calves.
