Terry, I'm in the middle of this country between two big rivers, 40 miles each way. Nobody here wears a cowboy hat. But if you wanna visit we'll kick out the roo's and throw a shrimp on the Barbie!

Woohoo! Thats going on my retirement list Don, thanks mate! ;D
I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't afford new bike boots, until I met a man with no legs.

So I said, "Hey mate, you haven't got any bike boots you don't need, do you?"

Terry, if you get caught wearing chaps in Arizona, you better be sitting on a horse. ;)

Way to go Scottly,  now I'm pissed off. I have a picture of Terry wearing chaps and singing Y M C A! Quick someone hit me in the head with a shovel so I can stop seeing that!🤯

I just want to jump in and make sure everyone knows that Jgger has a MENTAL picture of me doing that, not an ACTUAL picture...... ;D

Well, this is the pissed off thread. ;) Some years ago, there were quite a few pics with Terry's mug photo-shopped into numerous unflattering scenarios. ;D ;D

Wow, sorry I missed that..............not. But I did enjoy when Terry and Martin would go after each other, what ever happened to ol' Martin?

Wow thats Freaky Jim, I'm chatting to him on Facebook right now! He's going well, rode his F2 to work (English summer) and I'm guessing that life is good! I must ask him to come back here, I missed him and I guess you guys have too? He's a great guy with a good sense of humor, which is mandatory if you want to survive on this site! ; D

Yeah mate, the Internet is a truly wonderful thing, but the negative for me is any clown and his dog assuming that if he wants to be a "fabricator" all he needs is an angle grinder and a can of flat black. I despair when I look at the dangerous sh1t they turn out and all their flakey followers who kneel at the alter of incompetence, jerking off the "builders" ego with over flattering adulation.

And if anyone comes along and makes the least disparaging comments on safety or practicality, they're labelled as a troll. Fee Fi Fo Fum, that really pisses me off ! ;D

i'd like to say right here and now, i'm fully aware of the effects of any changes to any of my motorcycles, both in regards to safety and practicality, though it must be said most safety changes these days tend to be of a positive and increasative nature ( big brakes AND loud pipes save lives )

except for that time i replaced the ( castellated) rear axle nut on my vespa with the coolest looking pike nut you ever did see, unfortunately i was not aware that the castellations and hole through the axle were for putting a split pin into to prevent said nut undoing itself thereby allowing said nut to undo itself and the wheel then comes off the single sided axle disappearing up into the body of the vespa, this causes a slight loss of traction and a great and sudden increase in friction as the back end of the body itself comes into contact with the road surface, shortly followed by the left hand side of the bike , shortly followed by the rider itself
 a lesson well learned i say ( and two months in plaster from toes to testes gives you plenty of time to reflect on your mechanical shortcomings )

Ha ha, I must say that I love bikes that are modified to go faster, handle better and stop quicker, but if "form over function" mods that are just plain dangerous make me a hater, then I'm proud to wear that badge of honor! ;D

the vespa was modified for function as well, it had gone from a stock 197 with a breadbox exhaust and 24mm carb to a right little powerhouse...

it had a 212cc kit with a stroker crank that took it to 225cc, 30mm carb, unbaffled and  modified for freer breathing expansion chamber and hi-po clutch kit

it did however cop more than its fair share of bling...shed loads of chrome and engraving ( this was the mid 80s remember ), gold metalflake custom seat, trick backrest that flipped over for rider or passenger with matching gold metalflake pad, engraved windscreen, halogen conversion, candy metalflake gold/black paint, head/tail and indicator light grilles, stereo in the glovebox and probably other stuff i've forgotten

i finished it on the thursday before the first run of the year...trowelled it on the sunday

if i can ever find the photos of it i'll post them up for a laugh

I agree about big brakes, but disagree about loud pipes, especially in today's world of insulated cages. :(

They certainly do Spotty. I've told the story before about how loud pipes saved my life when I almost strayed into the path of 4 angry looking Bandido's on my ultra quiet Goldwing, but at the last minute I heard them before I saw them, and managed to steer out of their way before I caused a scary collision that had I survived, I would probably then be raped or beaten to death on the side of the Hume Highway.

Steering a land barge into the path of 4 drug crazed criminals on Harleys is a recipe for disaster, and enough to piss anyone off. ;D

Well I managed to drop my rear wheel brake backing plate assembly on my foot from about 3 or 4 feet when I was installing my rear wheel this afternoon, and I suspect I may have busted my big toe. Possibly breaking my big toe pisses me off. ;D

I feel your pain Terrance. Once I dropped a sprocket carrier with a dirty but new sharp sprocket onto my leg just above my ankle .
The black grease tattooed half a dozen lines into the skin. Took a couple of years to disappear. Fair bit of blood.

Thanks guys, and not worried about asbestos, I smoked for 40-odd year years and that didn't hurt me, so more worried about pulling on my Army boots later this week with a big swollen toe. I'm going to Darwin for 8 days, and I'll need to be able to walk. Bugger. ;D
