Dis-count, do-it-yourself plumbing or HMO? Not much difference except they clean the sheets and have better drugs.

what I did today

I needed some work done replacing rear brake rotor under extended warranty so I drove to OKC in chilly fog, for a 180 mile round trip ride. 61 degrees by the end of the day. Heated clothing on the way there with cracked visor so I could see. Great ride by the end of the day.

Only if you did the procedure on yourself.

Me? I rode my new 2008 BMW R11/1 Vergasser at 55 mph. Scared the hell out of me.

Maybe a few more times, then I'm parking it before something ugly happens.

I got to be the 1st Wingman for Ron on his R11/1 Vergasser.

Okay..here it is.... Ron's R11/1 Vergasser..the maiden voyage. That li'l Beamer flew down the road. Clocked it at tidge over 55mph. Wish I could figure out how to post a video clip of it.

Ron, I might have to post the videos on U-Tube first.
Then I can link to them. I'll email them to you in a few.
