    That makes it even better. It should have been narrated by Marlon Perkins describing the strange nest building of the elusive Bearded Rat Rodder.

    Thank you to everyone who spent one of your votes on the Southern Flyer.
    Look for the YZ-24 MotoBike to pick up where I left it sometime this Fall.

    I'm looking forward to meeting back here again in 9 months!

    We're 6th-lace-brothers! Avocado was 6th in the Anything Goes. Congrats.

    Also, it's cool that I happened to vote for you.

    I'm not sure, but hopefully later this fall.
    I have a backlog of (paying) work that includes a brick sculpture, so there's not much extra time right now. The kids need new shoes! :wink:

    Thanks Troy, but I think I'd rather not have a time limit again.

    Got this awesome double sided Roadmaster chain guard from yeshoney and mounted it today.
    All I did was take it out of the box and bolt it on. Amazingly the color (which was originally burgundy) had aged into this brown that matched the fenders almost seamlessly!

    I like the bike both with and without the chain guard, but (at least for now), it's staying on!
    I may have to find a tank next. :D

    Dude, that is just too weird. I bought the same guard from the same guy (went to his house to get it). Look at my BO8 bike, same guard, same patina.

    Only mine was originally dark blue and turned brown. I should've taken that one since my bike was originally maroon.
