I'll always bleed Sox red and piss Bruins gold, but life is too short and I desperately needed a change of scenery.  8 months so far in sunny, snow free SoCal.  Best months in a long while.

  NICE !  Good for you Boggy, So you missed the polar voltexes and Nor'easters  ?....  What a shame  ::)

Hey Glassshouse, Is that a Ural in the garage? Tell us about it. I'm a big fan, & miss mine.
Best Wishes, Craig McClure

  Glasshouse !?  he..he..he.   You have a good Eye. But no sir, close it's a Cj750 OHV. And I don't blame ya for missing it. They are a hoot to ride and built like a tank,oval framed, reverse gear, stone simple and reliable as a rigid pipe wrench......

Hi, fooled me I couldn't see enough of it. It is a beauty!  Seems I remember hearing about it before, you inherited it from your brother.
  Incidentally, those Chinese CJ HEADLIGHT RIMS can be made to work on a Royal Enfield using a 7" reflector. I have one on my G5 deluxe, & used one on my last Ural. They are on Ebay sometimes.
  Thanks for sharing!
Best Wishes, Craig McClure

 Thanks .... and ummmmmmm  ? That is a good idea . Instead of the "eyebrows" that slide under the outer ring.  I like it !  I may have to try swapping them , and see how it looks on the Enfield.
