Pinger,
My flat heads are single solo rider formats. I was trying to explain what I had lost all that stuff Id be all over back before my injury. now its like my life stood still when I was 35 everything I was doing is frozen in time. VAC CPPD or LTD can never put me back where I was. That is the shame.

I suppose winterizing a vehicle can be good for a '57 chevy, salt sand and all. To each their own.
But if I didn't ride my motorcycles and Harley's through the winter, I'd fire them up parked in my damn livingroom. Doesn't everyone do that?????  Open the windows and ventilate with straight pipes.
That's music and you don't need FM radio.

Can't do that no more. Leg/ spine/ and VAC thing.

RAGS... you got 2  '42 - '43 W models collecting dust? Shame. shame. Flatheads w/wo sidecar? WOW.
Don't know anything about flatties. But I want a nice PRETTY panhead engine for my kitchen table.
'65 circa and S/S has them. Cooked enough rice.

Good to hear Firebird , it's nice to be able to park your vehicles for the Winter , it's even nicer when the weather get's nice enough to take them out for a spin.

It is that time street sweepers have just cleaned the sand away rain took the salt away last week. Im lucky I have an old 1920s Ford Delership building that is my man cave. Bought before my world fell apart on the fields of Yugo. It is now my only salvation to hide from the world. I forget all the crap when Im there and when I raise the door and ride out on one of my bikes. On the bike side I run a 08 Harley Ultra and when playing around town my 1942 All Army Harley is the ride. I have 2 unfinished 1942 and 1943 Harleys collecting dust and Car wise I was building a 1919 Gray Dort boat tail Speedster it sites silently in the corner. The Mercedes sports coupe waiting attention in one bay and has sat there since 1995 when I parked it before I deployed. I did just charge up the battery and fire up the 87 rag top vette so maybe run it around this week. But my pride and joy which is rather foolish is my old beat up 98 GMC diesel 6.5 Turbo that I built to run vegetable oil. As a brain injured person I needed a project to try and work my brain so decided to play with an old truck and oil donated by the cafe next door. Took me 2 years to do it but have it running Bio Fuel now. A project that before my injury would have been 2 weekends took 2 years. Crazy but you cant quantify that loss to DVA or SISIP. Nore the pain to look at the projects I left 20 years ago and they still sit collecting dust... a reminder every day of how much I've lost. One day American pickers will show up and be amazed at what that old fellow left behind in his garage.
The good news is my new sport Cadillac goes fast as stink!

We could never afford a sports car .....Its sad, but true.... However....Thinking about the first car I owned, it was a 1977 Honda Civic 2 door....I bought for 325 bucks in 1990...And it needed nothing to past safety.....I loved it....I named it "The Beast". It went forever on a tank of gas. My boyfriend/husband decided to add a little flare to it...He painted it Glue Metal Blue and added a hood scoop with meg rims. (Yep, a 1977 Honda with a hood scoop).... that's how we rolled (lol) ...The Beast went forever .....with two baby car seat in the back seat....and 429,000 kms later...the motor blew up... So we found another motor, pop it in and it went for another 134,000 km, sadly we laid it to rest because that body was just too rusted in 1999. I still love that car...It hold a lot of memories for me...The first kiss to the ...first unsupervised dated ....which lead to the "Oops we are having a baby ".... years later we now own a crappy 2007 Grand Caravan with stow and go seating that no one know how it works....I hate it and I don't like change...
