Went to BBQ at a mate's house. Last minute idea as it was a fine Friday evening.

Called a girlfriend & between us all arranged a grand scran! :hungry1:

mate is a musician & tho he didn't play himself he treated us to an eclectic mix of tunes.

Good food, good friends & a great evening.

Today... not much so far. About to wash my hair (it's long, so that's more of an undertaking than it sounds. Takes an hour or two to dry). It should go great if I don't keep catching and yanking my industrial piercing this time, ow. Heading to my mom's later to watch fireworks--she lives on the 12th floor, so we can see displays all over (should've gone last night, I think... there were probably more and I wouldn't have to worry about getting up for work in the morning).

My mum's still insistent that she'll disown me if I get a bike. She worries about other people running into me. She says "when I was your age I wanted one too, but I got over it." Jokingly told her I saw on Craigslist where someone was selling a matched pair of '76 CB200s, told her "see, we could go riding together." She grinned and said "I probably would have fun. But no way." She did point out my neighbor's bike though (I guess she wasn't paying attention when she pulled into our parking lot, saw a silver Honda with a bike parked in front of it out of the corner of her eye... started plotting ways of killing me... then realized she was in front of the other set of carports at our building and it wasn't my silver Honda)... yep, it does fit in the carport, so now I know I could manage it, and the fact that they have it means management must be allowing people here to have bikes. MWA HA HA HA.

Bussed to work today, arrived an hour and half later and grumpier then normal. Then bussed to Scurvy to pick up my Pathfinder which I had loaned to my brother a few months back. Found a 2002 Connie for sale for C$4000 and now looking to see if I can find someone to borrow and who's family would be willing to "loan" me C$4000 for their return. :devil: :devil: :devil:

And got an idea to start a little side line business well feeling sorry for myself all caged up during perfect riding weather...shall have to look into it.
Always ask why.

Just put up a 15 model preview of the new 2012 Harley-Davidson motorcycle models: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... vidson.htm

As I increased the resolution of the site to 1280x720+ I also updated the preview photo size from 555 pixels to 700 pixels and the wallpaper image from 1680 to 2000. This should be really good for the future as screen sizes get bigger and bigger.

NOTE: I'm not that happy with the image quality of the H-D preview photos, they are very good but not up to TMW standards IMO.

Enjoy.

This morning I rode the R1150RT back from Los Angeles to Tucson. Left around 9pm last night, got back to the house around 7ish. That was the official end of the weekend out at Steph's parent's so they could spend some time with their grandkids and see their son before he deploys. Today I got the title signed over to my name, and got plates for it...and started trying to figure out why the headlights and instrument panel back lights don't work.

I was digging through a bunch of parts I had and discovered I had brand new EBC rotor and Kevlar pads that fit my Nighthawk so she got new brakes it didn't really need but wow what an upgrade......... The feel is so much more firm now and takes less effort. Did some more polishing on Maggie ( magna) I have the Jardine exhaust all shiny now. I may decide to repack them due to age, but that's "what I'll do another day" picked and froze a gallon of green beans today. Cleaned the carb on my power washer. Washed two dirt bikes I'm selling. Just decided to sink a little of the money from them into the bikes I get to use:(:(

Today my valve cover gaskets for maggie showed up. I got them done pretty quickly and adjusted the valves while I was in there. Installed some new fuel line and new filter. Ill pick up the stuff for her oil change and do that tomorrow. This just leaves a seat :kicking:

Yesterday we put a deposit on a 36' 5th Wheel Toy Hauler. Nothing too special, it's a fairly old used one, but very exciting for me because I've been wanting one for a few years now. Pick it up on Friday and we're heading straight to the Grand Canyon to try it out and make sure we like it.

I lived in a 36' 5th wheel when I lived in Phoenix. Some advice: don't live in them in Phoenix during the summer time... lol

Got a job finally. Been looking for a full time permanent job since last fall. Finally found one in one of my favorite cities. So I'm moving up to a family's place in Fort Collins to start work up there. Not working in the industry, I'll be an assembly tech for aircraft parts (Boeing and military mostly).

Wrider, I hope this one works out for you you slacker.

I went fly fishing for bluegills today. It's the first time I've ever caught anything on flies that I tied. :kicking:
Caught seven in about two hours.

Congrats on the job Wrider! Cool.

Went to the ward office and picked up my free toll passes which the govt are handing out to people in our area after the Japan quake. Don't ever use the toll roads, but maybe I should start now.

I know it's not what you went to school for and not your passion, but career-wise, the aircraft industry may be better than the motorcycle industry, no?
