We spent the day rearranging stuff in the garage, and tearing down Number Two so the frame and swingarm can be bead-blasted. Gonna give her a "real" front end, too (springs in BOTH forks and a brace). Took the Barge around the block, loaded the van for next weekend, and could SEE MY BREATH! :(

I hope it's warmer than this at Putnam - or at least as sunny.

Next step is raking leaves so we can take our Christmas card "family photo". Gonna need someone with a bucket truck to get all the "kids" in the picture!

So did anybody do anything interesting today??

Groceries?...Max just went on a beer run :D

Sunday morning I recovered from Saturday night and bought an entertainment center and receiver and speakers (little surround sound stuff). Spent all afternoon and night putting it together. Scratched the TV stand first time I put the TV in :mad Watched some more Pulp Fiction :D Now my living room isn't a mess of video game/television coax and RCA cables.

Some perspective...



So, if I'm doing 180mph on my Hayabusa when it is 0 degrees outside, it will actually feel like -150 degrees or something like that.

Maybe if I slap on a turbocharger and a delimiter, I might be able to reach 0 Kelvin.

ROFL I knew that was coming from someone. Actually I have two different limits. The busa Stays in the garage if it's below 60 but the Valk still comes out if its above 50. Anything colder than that and its just not fun to ride.
