    Fred's next bike...



    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Now there is a man with a Pilot Jet issue! It's a little stiff on the turns, but wait till you feel that power.

    I will buy the Beer if Fred will ride it. He might have to loose a few pounds to fit the suit.

    207 mph on bicycle skins?...and I worry about my ATV's tire integrity at 60 mph.
    Although that extra thrust might help launching over some of Moab's rocky ledges.

    I gotta ask...

    Who here has the guts to actually ride this if offered the opportunity today to do so?

    * I am an old adrenaline junkie and I think...no, I know... I'd have to pass...

    LT, when I was 19-21 I would have done that.
    Then turn around & do it again.
    Now? No way, Jose'!

    I'm not particularly proud of it but I was a crazy little MOFO in those days.
    Balls like basketballs, brain like a BB.
    But I sure had a lot of fun!

    My old man, "C.M." Howe, 1943, Needles, CA on a motor pool Harley or Indian.
    Not long after, he was stationed in Dudkhandi, India, bombing Japan in B-29s.
    He said the motorcycles were a lot more fun!
    I miss him every day.

    Guess the apple didn't fall far from the tree...
    "Faster, faster, faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death."
    - Hunter S. Thompson

    “It’s more fun to ride a slow bike fast, than a fast bike slow”.

    "The less horsepower a motorcycle has, the more it can teach you.” - Ben Bostrom

    And though a mountain may rise up and smack the livin' shit outta me,
    and wad up my bike somethin' awful...
    Still, I rise!
