    Wow Dan- surprises all over. It is nice to get to take a break and shoot the poo every here and there- glad you guys got to. I don't get drop-ins very often- unless they're neighbors or lost. I'm 20 miles from the closest Wal-Mart and that just freaks some people out. I, on the other hand, love my quiet corner out here. My neighbors don't wig out when I target shoot my 450. Town folk just don't like that stuff.
    Nice bike, Tim!!

    If you could see it in person, you would love it. The seat is alligator skin, and I tooled the family crest into it and dyed it. There's alot of stuff you just can't see in the pics.

    I'll tell you this much, this town rocks with bikes for a whole solid week and we are already starting to get the Doc and Lawyer bikers riding threw town. And if you make it this far you can count on having a place to stay.

    NEVER wore one since I climbed out of that race car for the LAST TIME, almost 20years ago. I have a skull cap that I wear in states that require helmets. Thats why I ride a harley. If you can't hear me coming they YOU get off the road. LOL Loud pipes save lives!

    That is a good one!! My husband wants nothing to do with bikes after watching his boyhood pal kill himself hitting a sign when the guy driving lost it on a curve, but I want my own!! I have a couple friends (women) that have them (Harley Davidsons- one 883 and one softtail) to ride with and can't wait.

    Nothings to say it can't happen, but I've been riding for 40 years and have NEVER put one down or been in any kind of accident, but I'm not stupid in that I know that every time I saddle up that this could be the day that I die. I LOVE to ride. This may sound silly but, EVERYTIME I ride I first look to the heavens and ask myself; Is this a good day to die?? If the answer is yes, then off I go. If the answer is no, I push her back in the garage. If I die riding, everyone should know that I died happy, doing what I love most. If I die in my sleep or in any other way, my friends and family will say; to bad he didn't get to go the way he wanted.....on his bike.
