    BEER! What's in your fridge?

    The aftertaste is exquisite though.

    BEER! What's in your fridge?

    Since my gallbladder removal I am not enjoying my usual liquor, so I'm on a search for a new one. Tequila has been palatable, but the Exotico I was drinking isn't as good to me as it was pre-surgery. So I'm seeking out a proper tequila. Starting here. It's not expensive. I'm just running down a list of "good tequilas for every budget". Starting at the cheapest because I'm hoping not to end up spending too much. This isn't bad. Nice, pleasant flavor. Spicy and warm. A little on the watery side for my taste.

    Yeah, he's really off kilter... everything sounds good, but it's strange to play

    Very tidy work anyway

    Okay, I've been staring at my phone and blowing up the image far too much, but it seems like the black almost completely hidden wires are the pups, and they ground to the side of the pot. Those two straight wires are asking for trouble though. They should have some flex.

    Tbh it's been so long since I wired up actives I had to crack open my only one that still has them and yes, they are grounded to the back of a pot. Looking carefully at the pic, I don't see pup wires? Maybe he took the pic before he finished.

    Actives probably.

    Manny DeLuna and the dark side of the moon.

    Looks awesome. Now you need to make a display stand so he can sit upright and observe what's going on around him.

    I finally got it cleared out enough to do the work. Of course, it will be at least 2-3 weeks before I can afford lumber, sheetrock, and insulation. Anyway, bathroom where the tub is, couch where the fat barber chair is, and tv across from that. I have to buy 10' sheets of sheetrock, so that sucks.

    Life throws things at you and I guess you can either catch it and throw it back or let it hit you in the crotch. I have no idea what that actually means though. On another note, I have 2 days off in a row for the first time in a while and I'm not sure whoch project to focus on... house, truck, or motorcycle. I don't have money I can use to buy lumber, so I'll probably spend a couple of hours in that house and then start on the motorcycle. I hadn't planned on starting that any time soon, but I have everything I need to do it, so by default it's either that or probably watch tv all day for two days.

    I'm looking forward to the challenge of it, because I want it to feel good as well as look good. This is the front end. It's from an 84 Goldwing. The k100 front end was never the greatest, but add a few years of wear and it becomes outright hazardous. Add into that the fact that it's a 750 pound bike(from factory) with smaller tires than most 500 pound bikes and that it has a 32" seat height and it starts to feel like a skateboard. Also, k100 parts to redo it's own front end are nonexistent and what is available is super expensive.

    I did some welding for my motorcycle mechanic, and in trade I got an entire Goldwing front end. I've been wanting to redesign my BMW for a while, and so this is a good start. My plan is to cut off the front of the BMW and install the Goldwing front end with a hair more rake than the BMW has, then lower the rear a couple of inches with a shorter shock absorber and shorter tire, then raise the footpegs a bit. The end result will be a lower center of gravity, wider front tire with better brakes, stiffer front end, and hopefully an overall more "standard" touring bike feel... rather than the sportbike feel it has now.

    Just sent land tax envelope number two out. One more left. They are trying their best to tax me to death. Wouldn't be so bad if we actually recieved some benefits from what we pay, but nope... we get a military.
