    My first roadbike I've owned was a 86 SRX600 I later tricked out and messed it up. It now sits in a barn in NJ . I do miss her .

    And a donkey an ass.
    Why do they call a ram in the ass a goose?

    '76 CJ360, kick start only (no provision in the case for a starter even), flat bars and some kind of rear set...I had no clue at the time. I stripped everything off that bike I could, hogged out big holes in the hub sides because that's what all the cool old bike I saw in pictures had. High sided from hitting the horrible factory 2-1 collector and after fixing (read: cobbling the poor thing together) ran straight pipes. Neighbors loved that....

    I miss that little piece of shit...
    Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thought in clear form.
