    The rainy season here, replacing a starter bendix in my King, helps when the HD parts send you a big twin and not a sportster on :( on hold for now but by the end of the week, just chilling for now.

    Busy being sick and traveling which extended the bad cold. Lost another inker brother this time to cancer, wife's aunt and friend of mine dying of cancer, 1.5 year old grandson in hospital for 2 weeks now and not yet diagnosed but the real reason I haven't been around much is wise azz comments from a guy on here.
    Hoping to hook up with BI and maybe you too Bambee

    Been busier at work than I expected, (which is good!!!), and accumulating parts for the spring repairs to the Honda. The Harley budget for the new year took a bad hit with a blown transmission in the truck. Might be able to get some pics on of winter poker run on 4 wheeler coming up in a few weeks if anyone interested.
    Other than that just livin' in the North. Hope all are doing well, but sounds like winter blues mostly all around.

    Not a lot happening here bike related. Have been busy working a lot, playing with the snowmobile and the wife. Got Rider and I are about a month away from heading out to Jamaica for a week. We met up up Ultra200922 and his wife last night as they just got back from Vegas. Getting a trip planned for Disney world in the first part of June. Other than that, not much.

    The best time to go to disney is a week before thanksgiving. Its a ghost town and no waiting for most of the rides. Most other time all rides have hours of waitingw. How do i know? Thats what a trusted friend who goes often and for years told me and i took his advice in 2013. And its comfortable wather. We took the kds out of school.

    Disney in July, ahh the sweat, the high temps, the kids tired, worn out, thirsty, dad trudging along buying $12 water bottles, $15 cokes, kids whining, tired, long lines in the hot hot sun.... Family Fun LOL

    Go online and buy your tickets for the parks, then buy the fast pass online for those days and they fill up fast, otherwise you'll spend more time in line than on rides.

    Learn to sing its a small small world :muted: song, over and over and over...

    F/B 128 , maybe we could ride the scoots to B/I this summer, eat all his food, drink all he has , and leave in the middle of the night. LoL, would not do that to you J and K, sounded pretty funny though.
