Good catch.



He correctly deduced that my last name is German and "should" have a "c" -- it was "Anglicized" by my grandfather just before we entered WWI. I get that so often that I usually don't even recognise it when it happens. I have been considering having it legally changed back.



Cheers

Bob

Agree with the first 4 points, but I have a wife, a boss (other than my wife, that is) and several employees who would be very quick to disagree with #5.

1. I usually add my comments below rather than the news article. May change in future.

2. Staff is on their own.

3. I try to post in a calm manner, but some posters need flaming. It's my way.

4. I like KPaul. He's my bud.

5. You guys are always right.

How-to's are not in the future yet. Never know if there is enough call for it. Forget changing the tires. Just trade it in on a new model. Works for me!

Electra Glide: At least it has bags to put all the parts that fall off. I like trying to figure out where they all go.



ZX9: I call it the "Squid Squasher". Easily the sleeper of the class.



Superglide: Actually got it to stop leaking last year. I submitted it to Guiness and then drank one. Since it's a kick start only, everyone knows why my right leg is twice as big as the left.

Buz is just giving me the business. We are two dumb Harley owners. I met him when we were both picking up parts that fell off our junk Harleys. Don't be TOO envious of that 76 FX. Sometimes I want to blowtorch the thing. Other times there is no sweeter ride in the world. Gotta love em though.

Ah, so jmeyn was right all along. It was your grandfather that was in error.



My plan to rule the world by pointing out spelling and grammar errors has been thwarted yet again. Drat!
