Regarding Member Resurrection

Is it just me or does his avatar look like a guy flying in a wheelchair?

I swear I have to do a double take every time I see it.

He is probably uttering some nasty choice words about us. LOL

His avatar is an optical illusion like this



What else do people see? I see what it should be (front of a bike)...

I always thought it looked like the front of a bike, but now that you brought it up and I started looking at it...

That's a depiction of a fairing...I see the wheelchair perception but, to me anyway... it's a stretch...Gus preps race bikes for some riders and the avatar is supposed to depict a sportbike.

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!

It's an "R"that looks like a fairing. I thought anyway.

I came up with Resurrection because no one could afford a Restoration.

From dead to turn your head.

Resurrection.

I think my days of working my ass off with a day job and motorcycle service are behind me.

I've enjoyed meeting some of you, others not so much.

People and their sickness for motorcycles can be very challenging.I'll keep wrenching at a much less demanding pace.

I've enjoyed trying to help on the forums although I find the whole language arts thing very challenging, I've never given up.

I think it looks like you are sitting in the handlebars backwards.

With the forks slid up to compensate.


LOL


Based on your work Gus, double your prices and work for rich pricks.

You average cheapskate. IMO

Funny how you figure out that rich isn't in your cards once we grow up.

After this whole valve thing all I want to do is live cheep and work less.

I'd consider building your GS once we find it.
