    Went for a ride today. Thought I'd take a pic for this thread. Its harder than it looks. I mean, you want to include as much motorcycle as possible, because motorcycles are cool and make everything better...and its YOUR motorcycle, so its the coolest of all regardless of how filthy and neglected it is. But.....then the knife is so small you can't even tell it is a knife. It could be a bug or twig. So you zoom in. Now the knife looks good and you can't even tell its a motorcycle. Zoom in.....zoom out.....zoom in....change angle, zoom.. well you get the idea. :oops::confused::eek:
    So here's what happened:[​IMG]
    Had a great ride btw :D

    .......tell me about it - you and me both :confused: :D

    Shane, Davey Crockett, the Bowie knife - icons of youth that spring to mind as well.

    Harleys, Hells Angels and knives were the stuff of drop-jaw wonderment as a boy...

    Yes, sorry to see him go. Incredible movie for its day and fantastic music as Jolipapa mentioned!!!
    Here is a traditional "bad boy" knife that I would like to imagine sat in the pocket of Captain America's leather jacket.
    It's sitting on the record I nearly wore out after seeing the movie... :)

    So the oil seal around the shifter shaft was leaking. I was rummaging through the tool box looking for a suitable tool to yank out the old seal when inspiration struck :cool: Turns out the "multi-purpose" hook on a SAK is just the thing :D[​IMG]

    I was tired of tuning carbs that were worn out. It was time for some fresh Amals for that Norton. These are the Premier carbs with the hard anodized slides that should last more than a few thousand miles. So far, I’m impressed by the quality of these two carbs.
