The List

Yesterday was my 35th birthday. I think I had a bit of a pre-midlife crisis. 35... there's no going back. The days of being mistaken for being a college student are probably over. My balding head and grey beard probably assures that. 35 is almost 40, 40 is almost 50, and 50 is almost, well... The "Price is Right" loser sound just went off. I guess I should get used to having a doctor's finger up my butt once a year soon.

Anyway, I can't get my Triumph's barrels bored until I get new pistons, shells, and rings ($?), so I'm on hold on that. I can't get my crank ground until I get my barrels bored, so again, on hold. Both of those will be $300 combined. I spent a great deal of time this weekend going through every part and seeing what needs replaced. I saw a lot dollar signs in front of me. There's a couple big ticket items that need replaced, like the quadrant in my gearbox... that's a $75 part new. I may just try to pick up a spare gearbox and scavenge it for parts. I can't believe how trashed my cases were, so hopefully Pops can fix those.

Happy Birthday!!

Being 35 means that now you have some justification for having too many motorcycles.

Buck up son. I got nearly 10 years on you and I'm still kicking. Once you become a Dad lots of things that used to weigh you down become totally insignificant... in a good way. I'll dig through the parts cache and see if I have anything to contribute. Happy Birthday.

Yeah... I had a bit of a crisis turning 35. I'll be 36 in a week. I'm happily married, so it's not like I'm looking, but there's just something sad about going from, "Ooh... he's older," to, "Ew, he's older."
