Default You told me!

A guy once told me that after his 3rd marriage he decided to just pick a girl off the street, take her to a Real Estate Office, buy her a house, then say goodbye. He would do this every 5 years or so. Said it was easier than getting married again. Glad you didn't have to go this far.

Less than a month to the mountain.

That was a shot "below the belt"! Grim Peeper! Hey Tom, ever see a grown man naked?

Packy....sounds like good advice your friend gave you, I will look into that house vs. marriage thing as is has to be cheaper than the way I have been doing it!

Default Geeze

you get caught looking in a couple of windows and you get branded for life.

For those interested, the scooter started as a 1971 Night Train Express, precurser to the Super Glide. When I rebuilt it I went to a 1950 Pan Head frame...rigid....which might have looked good but was the biggest mistake of my young life. The engine was kept at 74 inches but the pistons, cam, lifters, and gearing were changed. It screamed. I rode it everywhere and took it on a trip to Quebec, from Quebec to Maine, then back. I think I left my kidneys on the bridge at Thousand Islands New York. I was definately pissing blood by the return trip. Great bike until a lady decided to turn into a church in front of me and the President of the club. We both broad sided her. I sold what was left to a friend then bought a 71' Electra Glide for 1,500 bucks...in perfect shape. Sold all the farings, bags,etc., slapped a Super Glide seat on it...and never Kicked again!

Great days...

How long did the Oldsmobile Cutlass behind you last?

It was a tradition with the "Grinning Peepers" to have their picture taken front of the house they were "peepin'" in.....No 9-1-1 back then, so they knew it would be awhile before the cops showed up.

Frisco
Thats the picture of me in training for when I get to smoke that turd in hell
John's drinkin' Crown Royal while I get to sip the cheap $hit.......or was it the other way around?.....It's tough gettin' old, I keep forgettin' things

Kathy
Warm up the camera and charge up the batteries......I'll be in for another photo-shoot

Bob,
Is that back in the days of party lines, "what number, please," and rotary phones?

The Cutlass, Chevelle SS, Skylark, Nova, and a Gremlin with a 442 in it. Ouch! The ass end beat the car to the line.
