Monday, December 1, 2014


Took a ride out to Byron with Douglas a couple weekends ago. I had been out there on the Triumpg and wanted to take a picture of this garage, but their was a gang of scary, fat, bald, white shirt wearing tough guys at the bar next door so I bailed. Only a horse tied up to the railing this time. As fun as a hard tail is, a swingarm sure feels good now and again.

Turkey Day Weekend

It's been a long 3 weeks and it's looking to be longer. Whatever bug attached itself to Max, he quickly destroyed with his strong immune system. I have not faired as well. I have been sick as a dog, a constantly evolving illness. Respiratory, coughing, sinus, lethargic... I'm a mess. I keep thinking I'm getting better only to get knocked down again. Poor Max has become a bit of a shut-in and tv junkie. I feel super guilty and try to get him out at least once a day before I want to pass out. I forget what feeling good feels like. But I still managed to get out and ride before the rain storms came on Friday. I've also got my computer back up and running with a new hard drive and operating system so I'm going through about 3 months of photos, and hoping to start updating a little more regularly again. *Achew* Eww, that's an interesting yellow...

Homemade Amal Carburetor Shorty Velocity Stacks With Screens: Take 2

Because it was apparently not metal, the window screen I cut out the first time started tearing so I came up with another brilliant idea and bought some cheap strainers. I think they came out MUCH better this time.

Set aside 30 minutes of your life, you will love it.

I had a Mercury spill in the garage due to a leaky carb sync. This stuff is pain to clean up. Took a paint brush, some gloves, carb board, ziploc bags, and some shaving cream to get most of it. What stinks most of all is when it happened it freaked me out and I jumped backwards hitting my CB750 gas tank off the shelf onto the floor, top first. My pristine 1976 tank now has some bad dents. I was just going to clear over it, now it needs painted. BUMMED!

The Cucurbita pepo Ruination By Pest and Spore

Our poor pumpkins didn't even survive a week thanks to rabid squirrels and mold. I tried my best to save one from a squirrel feast but it didn't make it.

that poor spider

Oakland's Fairyland put on their Halloween Jack-O-Lantern Jamboree Sunday and Max introduced the world to his pterodactyl costume. A whole afternoon of frantic excitedness, Elsa's, and healthy snacks.
