    I am so happy and a bit in disbelieif

    I passed my Motorcycle safety driving course today. I had a perfect score. Only 3 of us passed out of the 10 and I am sorry the others did not pass. I made some very nice friends in the passed 4 days. So Tuesday I can take my certificate to the DMV and hand it over for my M stamp on my lic. YAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Good deal Dave.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Congratulations Dave!

    I took the MSF course over 10 years ago, and put about 33,000 miles on my Suzuki GS500E in the first 4 or 5 years. I got to see parts of my state that I never would have been motivated to visit otherwise, and took several multi-thousand mile trips.

    I have let work and other stuff get in the way for the last 5 or 6 years, so only an additional 7,000 miles or so in that time, including a ~2000 mile trip last summer to Grand Teton / Yellowstone / Little Bighorn Battleground / Devil's Tower / Mt Rushmore / Rocky Mt National Park.

    Lots of fun; good memories!

    Did you notice how I put "Enjoy" at the beginning for a change?

    I had a Harley 74 when stationed at Camp Pendleton (So. Calif.). Can't you just see that combination: Hyperactive, snot nosed, 17 year old and a Harley rider.
    The doggone thing had only one speed. I forgave it however, because that speed was wide-open.

    It is a miracle that I am alive.
    PLEASE don't be stupid like I was. We would like to keep you around for awhile.

    Enjoy (again)

    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.

    Congrats, Dave!

    I take it that was the MSF course? The wife and I did ours in '07 and it's saved my hide a few times. Good work!

    Safety Course

    I will be taking the course as soon as I can schedule it in. Meanwhile I am working on this project.

    1996 Yamaha TW200 that sat for many years in a carport. Carb was stuck solid. Looked like a pint of paint was poured into carb and let dry for 10+ years.

    Got it running after a couple of days of work but now I need some new parts for the carb. Will be refurbursing, not restoring. Just want to get it a a safe reliable mode. A few rust areas that bother me as I want to stop any further rust before it becomes a structual concern. Other spots of light rust may have to wait.
