See ? This is where some of us old guys go wrong.

Just hoe do you KNOW your going to reach your next birthday ?

I know that I'm well past my time as I was never expected to make it past 21.

Now between Islamic Terrorists and Covid 19 and the fact that I'm going racing again next month I find it very unlikely I will get to see 70.

You'll notice I always eat my dessert FIRST now, just in case.

Don't want to die with Apple Pie waiting for me to finish that last mouth full of brussel sprouts.

Your Chef needs to learn proper preparation of brussel sprouts.....

I have instructed my chef that the the proper preparation of brussel sprouts involves depositing them in my compost bin.

My previous chef failed to do that and now works at McDonald's. As a cleaner.

Thumbs up Late 60's

Late 60's refers to my age, not my Sporty. I own two Sportsters, an '84 XLH electric start I rebuilt from an accident bike I found. Added a Crane electronic ignition and painted it Harley yellow - couldn't stand the faded burgundy crap. Running a Mikuni carb and have 4,000 trouble free miles until last week. (see my recent post asking for suggestions)
My other Sporty is a '73 kicker, currently not running or on the road. Has a really cool chameleon paint job though.
I'm happily married to my 2nd wife - this is the right one! She lets me have 11 motorcycles and is happy as long as I'm happy. A real keeper!

That's the mostes important thing. Having lived at both ends of the spectrum.

Went 30 years raising kids-working. No time for bikes

Now I have a couple old scooters in my garage and a girl that doesn't have a "bitch circuit"

They have all the pussy, so they naturally think they are in charge.
