Gotcha. Rarely do I see any of the dentists and lawyers on Harleys
around here wearing that stuff. I do a lot a young punks on crotch
rockets wearing that stuff, but they are usually the ones causing
accidents by weaving in, out, and around cars at twice speed limit.
When they fly by me, I just wave and say, "See ya at your funeral."
Oh yeah, while we're on the topic, if you're going to ride a motorcycle
with that tiny little brake might on the back and cut in front of me,
have the brains of a gnat to at least apply a little bit of brake when
you're downshifting so I freakin know when you decide to go from 50 to
30 in 1.5 seconds.

I belong to a vintage motorcycle club. There's some contention whether
the "vintage" applies to the bikes or the riders :-). I know it's a
small data point, but there must be close to a thousand years of riding
amongst the members. I can't say we've never gotten a little road rash
(I know I have) but the only body parts I know of that are missing were
replaced due to old age :-).

I had a friend who put a Big Mack air horn in a little VW bug beater. He
got it from the junk yard. It was big, ugly and LOUD!! He put in an air
tank to run it. It took up much of the little trunk in the front of the
car. When he blasted that thing off, it got people's attention.
There has been a lot of discussion lately about how electric cars are too
quiet and people don't know they are there. So they want to make them put
some kind of noise maker on them so they can be heard. I though being quiet
was a good thing! I find it interesting because I have always had a hearing
problem and have never heard cars very well anyway.
Friend of mine has one of the Lexus R-somethinorothers. She asked me to
move it for her one day. No problem .... sheeeiiiiit! I tried to start
it for ten minutes before realizing it was already running.
Plus, you ever tried to start one of those keyless things for the first

In Glasgow, Scotland they brought in trolley buses to replace an aging tram
system and some diesel buses. People called them "Silent Death" as, compared
to the trams with noisy rail & wheel or the loud diesel engines, the trolley
buses were nearly silent and one or two fools did go under a bus.
Cartoonists for the local newspapers had a great time with the trolleys.
Kudos to the police for that. Too bad it isn't legal to neuter the
offending neighbor, too, while you were at it.

You have second sight. You saw right through my cybernym.
But watch that guy next door. If he's going by Edward,
he may be a vampire. You're lucky he's not calling himself
"George"; that's number one among captured Russki
spies. But, "Henry"...are Frenchmen dangerous?
And..now seriously...my pleasure, again. You're welcome.
I'm thinking of calling/emailing the Incramen with the
final observations and seeing what they say. If this happens
with feedback, I'll pin it to the thread.
The real field test would be cutting a piece of scrap. Maybe
there's something in the wood pile. In fact,
