    A bit of looong ago

    A bit of lost history. Something of a beginning for me, the TW and the forum. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVV...XZcEMiCMI77Tjw
    Take care my Friend.........

    You were riding with Mike (evan) before I knew who he was. Some of the video which gave me inspiration. Thanks Gerry.

    That's not so very long ago, there are TWs in the video. They have only been around since 87 or so.
    I had been riding Harleys and others for 22 years by then.

    23 for me. I think we're getting old Plelonius... But as long as I can get one toe under the shifter, I'll be trying to ride a bike.

    I can't get a toe under the shifter anymore or lift it for that matter. I put my foot in front of the shifter and lift it with my heel.
    A dead foot on top of the shifter can still down shift though. Getting old sucks. I fell on my ass in the yard today, no excuses, just fell down.
    I was resetting my squirrel trap and fell on it.
    Squirrels have been chewing on the wiring and fuel lines of my truck. When I catch one I deport them across two rivers and turn them loose in a cemetary about 35 miles from here. They are violently enraged when in the trap and when I turned him loose he ran for about a hundred yards. When I drove away he as still running but not towards where I live.

    Hope you didn't get hurt phelonius. You don't want to get your nuts caught in the trap, even tho you are trying to catch squirrels...
