pretty wild BikNut. Bare with me, I think the 12 yr old was some how you and motorized bicycles are a vehicle returning you to some thing unsettled if only the childhood wish to put an engine on a bicycle. A metaphor pertaining to the increasing responsibilities of growing? His older brother (guessing here, the voice of reason and responsibility?) advised you on some thing, might be the you who out grew it. "here" reintroduced you to old conflicting thoughts and required revisiting.

Or, I am just full o' sheep dip and it was just a rambling dream. lol, prolly the later. (but stuck in your head to the point of thinking about it at length)

I find most mornings I wake thinking about MBs. How to do some thing, build or how to make a bracket for a jet. Just the normal motorized bicycle sort of stuff.
worst apocalypse ever

There was a kid I knew when I was about that age who had an older brother. In those days I had become interested in small gas .049 COX engines. I had a line controlled plane, and he had a race car.

I was having a very hard time figuring out how to get it started. When I met him he was running his race car in the street. It had no control what so ever. You just started it, and let go till it hit something and wrecked. It had the same .049 engine I had. His brother had taught him how to get it started, and so he taught me. The secret was in how much priming. Not too much, not too little. From that day on I've always seemed to have a green thumb for gas motors.

The only thing is we were here in Dallas. I have no connection to KC.
