It does my heart good to see somebody so happy about their bike!
But my inner skeptic wonders if you're a figment of Kevins fertile imagination ;)
Keep those reports coming.

Pretty boring report. 
Couldn't you at least break a nail while pulling the choke?  Put a crick in your neck while straining to pat yourself on the back?  Broke a shoelace walking out to the garage?  Something?  Anything?

ERC does not drink at all but is referring to my habit of only drinking beer on weekends. It is an attempt to keep my weight at a nimble 225 lb.

Clamp is spot on! Who wants to be healthy enough to live for an extra five years in an old folks home?
