Gotta talk to your baby. Be nutz not to. Really is a pretty intense relationship. Functional art even from a kit and bicycle out of a box, we married them together. Learned, tweaked, cursed, bent, beat and begged. Then that first ride! Is functional art in it's highest form. Each successive build bringing us closer to Motor Bike nirvana and a higher plane of knowledge and understanding of the mechanics of it all. When she is running right, oh man! When she is down, I have failed or need to fix. Love and some times anger but always a rather intense relationship.
LOL Tim, me too. We are to get between 1 and 2 feet of snow tonight. Really meant to have put some rivets in spare tires to see if they would work for ice. Snow is fun though and hurts less. I crash a lot, snork.
(actually, now that I think about it, I haven't crashed since I stopped drinking beer. Could there be a correlation?
