You're not very bright, are you? And 85mph T5, uphill? Ha ha ha...I doubt that you'll get the nuance and abbreviation seeing as you cannot read or write for shit. I'll post this but I am sure that you won't 'get it', willfully or otherwise. As for your other post, let's just say that it doesn't matter what race is the driver who cuts you up. There are just bad drivers out there of every description. And of every race. If you care at all you ought to be asking yourself why you think that what you posted is acceptable. You are prejudiced if you ascribe some or other charateristic based on race. Or attempt to imply such. Have a listen. You might learn.

Nearly took the end of my thumb off while Exacto-knifing slots in some high denisty foam to make a nice, neat, organized case for all my jets. A little blood, but turned out nice and tidy... always feels good when tools and parts are in order!

I got my Honda Silverwing powered trike started today and took it out for a run. It's "a scooter, Jim, but not as we know it", to misquote from Star Trek.
The roads were damp and slippery so I enjoyed sliding the rear end around on corners. I've never driven/ridden anything which gives as much feedback.
You feel perfectly safe with 1, 2 or 3 wheels drifting.
When I got home I parked it differently in the garage so I can get my Vespa or trike out without having to move both.

Went to put a new kickstart lever (px motor in oldie frame type) tried to loosen the nut on the old one to take it off, and low and behold it just spins... can't tighten it or loosen. Tried to use some Robogrips Razz emoticon to pull on it as I loosen hoping to grab some thread... no luck... lloks like I've got to cut the nut off... bitch... endend up freezing my ass off for a hour when I thought I'd be in and out in 5.

Cleaned up the exhaust of my VNB and sprayed it black with high temp paint

Looking a lot better now !


I also straightened out the stand a little, but it is still a bit bent

Does anyone have any tips for getting it completely straight ?


Thanks

Figured it out... a friend pointed out the obvious... having a lot of H.U.A lately.
I still didn't realize that SIP sold the [redacted] stuff... but that wasn't even the problem... that part works fine where it's meant to.

SIP actually sell quite a bit of their stuff. I ordered a bit for my VBB from them and when I received it was stamped with redacted's name. So how pissed was I, paid for shipping from VN to Germany and then back to VN and on top a big wack of duty.
