Lets get a handle on some things

Here is my new ammo / Battery box. and I made some new drag bars with 17" risers, they are Blitz Black the color I intend to Paint the rest of the bike. I know my little shop is a mess but I'm trying to get this MFer out on the road so I have been working and not cleaning. right I could work better if I wasn't tripping over me own dink but I'm a transitional person and this is one of the things I need to transition LOL! If you click on the pics they get almost full screen. TTFN

shifting shifty shifters

I have made the brackets and mounted the actuator. next I have to build the vac tank and wire the solenoids to the switches , pipe up the tubing. the biggest thing left to figure out is how do I spring the shift linkage to the 2-3 gate I have a three position switch witch I am only planning to you use two but may wind up using all three.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
something whicked this way comes! although progress seems slow body work and painting are tedious tasks, progress is being made the tins should be ready for paint this week and painted next week. the frame will be later on, wiring and shifter work remain. I have been procrastinating on the shifter, hoping for better ideas to come but none have, so Its trial and error time. the throttle cables should be here on my sweet hearts birthday. and some test rides will ensue. watch out owls head were coming for you ready or not. I sure hope to ride it there but guess I will be happy to ride it while there. back to the garage lots to do if you read my blog let me know. I'm pretty sure I'm the only one who does but who dosnt like talking about themselves LOL.

I did it I did it I did it!!!

I dont think words can describe my elation. I DID IT NAH NAH NAH!!!!!

Ogre's need a pick me up too!

well one skun thumb and she's pretty near done. I just need to test her out and come up with a simultaneous pumping mechanism. I pumped her up last night she went up smooth and solid climbed on top and jumped around. If Chevy is like a rock then this lift is like a diamond wholly rugged. but the real test will be the six hundred pound Katasaki. I'll try that tonight. well time for work!

Getting high with the Ogre

Sorry no pic's me and the Ogre have been in the garage trying to get high no not dope stupid I hurt my back so I've been building my lift table! to get it off the floor. the table wasnt to bad the scissor was pretty easy but want to pull youre hair out try figuring out how to make a scissor lift to go for cheap! I tried to make an old ford bumper jack go went up slick came down with a bang. tried an 8 ton bottle jack plenty of power short on stroke. I tried a screw to much tourqe with no load it was sweet but put 200lbs vannila gorrila on it and look out. I ordered a couple of 20" lift 8ton jacks but they dont work laying down ( for sale good deal only used once) So my buddy suggested an rv scissor jack 24" 7k lbs. I'm just waiting for pay day $40 at the local trailer supply. its got the reach it shrinks to 4" its got more than enough liftin capacity so we giv her a shot I'll take some pics of the lift when she's done! I also fractured my wrist snow boarding with my son that slowed production. I got a band saw and that speed production back up. then I had a financial misshap which resulted in 27" interco SWAMP LITES for my Katasaki 650 vtwin ye mother F....n Ha! so now were back on track there is a bike show at LA harley on the 5th of may I'll see if the boss wants to go all for now bax to tinkrin!

MAN eating TIGER

How do you react to a man eating TIGER?

You don't REACT!

You pause and make a choice. You must decide if red wine and mashed potatoes or beer and fries goes better with tiger. remember you are responsible for your choice.

In my past life I was a man eating Tiger I know this because I have studied Buddhism for the last three years and through much meditation one day I had vision. In my vision I was a large powerful orange tiger with paws as big as your head and claws as long as your fingers proud and ferocious! A man in a khaki suit was either hunting me or had me in a cage. this man had turned to beat a small brown person with black hair. This abusive behavior triggered something and I reacted I killed the bad man and ate him. the whole vision only lasts a moment and I think I was killed shortly after that for eating the zoo keeper or some one else in the hunting party shot me I may never know but at that moment I had done a karmic good thing by saving the little brown person and being a man eating TIGER it was my nature to eat the man. So as Buddhism goes I earned a chance at the next level in cyclic living. I was born A red haired boy who was very rambunctious, apparently some of the tiger was still there I have been diagnosed with ADD it is very distracting to have a caged tiger pacing in your head. I struggled for half of my life trying to keep the tiger in a cage. when something bad happened to me The tiger (metaphorically speaking) breaks out of his cage and tries to protect me by eating whatever is trying to cause my suffering. Recently I was suffering due to some of my own behavior and the tiger got loose well it wasn't pretty some one almost got eaten. I was at my wits end with that goddamn tiger I was going to take it out back and shoot it! I had given up, with the help of some one who knew how to listen I made it one more day, I made it to a class called 7 habits of highly effective people. I have experienced a Paradigm shift! If you know me don't ask what my suffering was that day I cant and wont tell you just know it was a powerful catalyst that was perfectly timed to cause a lasting effect.I hope and pray and have every faith that my life has changed for ever!I know this because me and the tiger want this with every fiber of my being! I want to thank three people the first is the Dalli Lama for helping me understand Buddhas principals the second is Sgt Wycoff for teaching me Steven Covey's method for utilizing these principals in a highly effective manner. I also want to thank Cesar Milan for teaching me that like dogs tigers don't understand human psychology. you must exercise and discipline your tiger and when he is calm and submissive you may show him affection, that is when the tiger will walk beside you. You control the tiger the tiger does not control you! I am 36 years old I am exactly half way through my life and I am finally becoming a MAN eating tiger!
