One of my favorite things to do..............

and it's right up there with riding and having , is to sit in the garage drinking beer, staring at my bike and listening to music. and if the mood strikes me, i'll tinker with the bike, or not. tonight, i've got a small laundry list of things to do to it and i'm putting those fires out, one at a time. when i was younger, i had several friends that were like minded and we would get together for garage/shop parties but now that i'm older, those types of friends are fewer and farther between.
i'm sure there is no shortage of you youngsters that are still doing it, so stand up and be counted. who's out there?

I spend most of my free nights in the garage. Either working on the bike, or tinkering with my 32 Ford.

I can relate, but with friends, none of them really seem to interested in projects or anything I swing at them that I do.
Some nights ill just hangout in the garage and tinker with the bike, I just installed new foot peg cause mine broke earlier today.

Yep. Of course, having relatively late model bikes (and Japanese) means they rarely need much of anything!

Sounds like my Saturday night

Nothing better than working on the bikes/cars and drinking cold beers with my buds!

Definitely fun times in the garage. I been trying to get my bike right for so long, I'm glad I could start it and hear it., a quick spin around the block. I will be visiting somewhere to get some hardware to get these plastics on. Oh might need a few more tiewraps. Lol.
