My little laptop lives again...

Now I just have to learn how to use it again. 34 updates later..(It's been sitting for a few months waiting for a new power supply)...and everything has changed. Finally figured out which hoops I had to jump, and which rumps I had to kiss...

Not much going on lately on the motorbike front...did get the "powerful' engine back into the SL 350 project, and have mocked it up a little further to what it's next incarnation might be...will probably add a picture here...when I have it.

Sitting around having a 'Big breakfast' at the local McD's...latching on to the 'free wifi'. Listening to the interesting combined hubbub of retired Chinese businessmen and sidewalk philosophers spouting political and religious pontifications and bloviation...chitter chatter...hyperbole...bringing to mind an Adrien Belew tune...

Been gone all week helping friends move out of a live/work studio space in the lovely town of Oakland California. Been a real struggle...eviction/limited access/f'ed landlords/hostile neighbors kinda thing....and it's not over. Probably headed down later this eve to wrap things up over the week end.....maybe we can get another pizza from the place down the street from the 'Angel's' clubhouse...

No return...

Veteran's day....

Where did the year go?   Or should I say years...18 years have come and gone since my father succumbed to agent orange related cancer.'s remembering him and so many others...this day.

Sargent's old Army Air Corp patch that was on one of his old B4 bags.
The match book I picked up at a flea market is from Mather Air Force base, where he retired from.  And remembering my Uncle who survived D-Day and is still here and driving!!

Have a good one everyone.

It's a roller again...

And about time...the weather is turning rapidly and it's starting to get cold here.Snowed in Yosemite and to the East of here. Just a couple quick pics.

A lot easier to move with wheels on them.

I still plan on using a CB 750 tank. I'm thinking of trying to replicate the look of this two tone tank from an early CL 350 .
