Got it on..

Some problems are worth having. None of these things are running .
 The Shovel and pan are almost there. The knuck has to come back apart.

Got it

Got a call last night to come pick up my tank. It's done, well except for the final polish.

It's on the ground

I called up a couple of people, had them come over and took the Shovel off of the stand today. I wanted t see how it sits and had to tighten up some bolts underneath.  the wife even liked how it sat.

Dad and I took my sissy bar and exhaust pipe to get dipped in Richmond today. I should have it back in a week or so. Then we went to Oakland for a visit and got out of the rain for a while. Now I'm back home watching it rain and wondering what I can do tomorrow...

sunnier days

Late night and wet days

I need to go back to work all of these rainy days have got my schedule all screwed up, I have been sleeping in way too late and staying up way too long. I have got a few things accomplished, I made a way too complicated spring loaded rear seat pin for the Shovel and made the center peace for the sissy bar on the pan.

A lot of work for a button

Ebay delivery today

Dad I wanna go for a ride

Watching the watter run through my garage, through the wall and out the door

A little family time

Took the kids to Bodega bay to see my in-laws. After our visit we went west to the ocean to do a little splashing in the tsunami waters.

She talked me into it.

My daughter talked me into going for a ride today, she really had to twist my arm. We rode around town a while then decided to go out Alhambra Valley for a ride in the country. We saw a castle, a couple of emus and a whole bunch of cows on the way home and she told me that she loves going for rides on the motorcycle.

one of those days

I sold a Lepera seat on craigslist and decided to deliver it to Brisbane. I wanted to ride over there but the weather wouldn't cooperate, but the guy threw some extra cash at me for delivering it and I got to go for a drive around the bay.

heading home still no traffic
