Well, here's a couple pics of it. It was a rainy crappy day so I didn't get to ride it and the battery was pretty dead so I didn't get to hear it run either. It looks to be in very clean shape with lots of parts that'll either get taken off or sold. We agreed to wait for a nicer day so we could get it out, get it running, and ride it. If that all works out, I'll do the trade and start gathering parts for next years build!

Even with as bleak as things can look at times these days, I do have a lot to be thankful for. I have a wonderful family, a wife that has put up with my shit for the last 24 years, 2 sons that are also my best friends and I couldn't be prouder of both of them. They've each chosen a good woman to share their lives with and our youngest son and his wife are expecting their first child on December 19th, our first grandchild, the family grows.
With as much as I can bitch and complain about my job, I have a good job for this area with very good job security. We're swamped with a lot of different projects with no end in sight, can't complain about that in this economy.
I've got a handful of true friends that I can always count on.
I've got scoots in the garage so "wind therapy" is never very far away.
I've got a lot to be thankful for.....

Just when you thought it would end, he starts with a whole new story line starting with, "I have a dilemma." Now having been drinking for a couple hours, I figure what the hell, I could use some more entertainment. He then starts with his dilemma of 2, 1% MC's that want him to patch in. One is an MC on his wife's side that within the next 3-4 years is going to patch over to H.A. The other is the dominant for our area that his dad has been a member of since he can remember. Really, I ask, which would be who? He says SOA. I couldn't fucking believe he actually said SOA. Just to be sure he wasn't meaning something else I asked,"Seriously! Sons of Anarchy?" He said, "yup, quite the dilemma huh" Time for me to go home, as I'm leaving he puts the icing on the cake and says, "Later Bro!" I really wanted to just turn around and punch the guy, but out of respect for the others there and my neighbor that threw the party I just kept walkin'. Fuckin' ass-hats!

I had a blast, robotics is a lot of fun, especially integrating them into a weld shop. Tested out at 92%! Woohoo!
I didn't get a lot of pics, but I did grab one crossing the Mississippi on my way home-
Covered just over 2200 miles and got a couple certs to boot! Sorry about the crappy pics, all I had was my phone, lol!
