Talking Re-Introduction



Hey all, I have been out for a while and doubt many of you even noticed. I was in a bad car accident (was T-boned on passenger side, and I was the passenger). I'm lucky to be alive! I am now able to walk and have had to change jobs because the last place I worked at fired me for not being able to walk up stairs (equal opportunity my !). I have just gotten my cast removed from my leg and now I have an air splint:BangHead:. I should be able to ride again in two or three weeks, provided I can still get my bike back out of the shop (sorry Motorcycles Unlimited guys, it has been a rough month). I'm now working closer to home and for a company that has an elevator. I am designing deep sea subs and equipment for Oceaneering. I'm now able to access the internet again, since I don't have it at home... I look forward to getting back out there and riding and meeting even more "MH.com"ers...

Anyway ride safe guys! I'll talk to you more soon!

Nope, no pictures... Sorry, I'll talk to my friend to see if it is still in the junk yard and get you some then. I still have no clue why people think green means go, yellow means speed up, and red means go even faster. What I learned is that toyota's are no good after being t-boned by some redneck in an old chevy pick-up.

Ha ha! Good to see your humor is still around! What happened to HpD? I'll see what I can do about your sub, even though Livingstone isn't sea or deep! I got a cardboard box with a plastic window that is going for really cheap... Want me to put your name on it?

ha ha, $50 for the cardboard box and $3000 for your air supply (garden hose tied to a stake on shore)... Sold, the USS Clayton it is! I'll spray paint that on the side for an extra $20!

That is going to cost extra, I'll have to get another garden... er "air supply" and find a deluxe model (fridge box)... Give me some time to figure out the specifics!

Here is a picture of our prototype, the engineers think it will work better in a lake though!

I was checking out this company for you, but I guess they went out of business a long time ago!

OK, so the engineers tell me we used the wrong duct tape... Good catch on the chlorine call... That sh*t is caustic! A little rubber cement and some clear packing tape and it should be ready for the next test!

Del, what do you do for them? I was on a rig for a couple of weeks with my last job and hated every day of it!

I'm there for sure man... Nothing can keep me off my bike once the Doc and the MRI says I'm A-OK. I'm dying to hit the streets again. Track will have to wait this year, unless I get the deal I was looking at on a track bike that's already setup... I'm tired of taping my lights and dealing with 2 sets of parts for my 636... I have been looking at something a little older and slower, but it is the rider that matters right! Plus if I ditch the track bike I'll still have my 636 until I find a new street bike then the 636 will take the place of the track bike... If anyone has any good deals on a track ready bike PM me and I'll hobble my crippled out there and look at it...
