Fredgold52's comments reminded me of:-

It seems you also have to take into account the way this forum is organized, with topics clearly defined and all communication about a topic easy to get at.  Some of the other sites on Internet are that way, but I doubt if there is a better one for nice layout.  Sometimes I get a little tired and go to the gallery to take my mind to a different level.  Soon enough I see something interesting and do a little more studying of it, my tired brain soon forgotten.  Other times I am just poking around the forum, not really focused and something will grab my attention and off I go. 

As others have indicated, it's a very democratic forum, and people here aren't afraid of ridicule or  exposing their ideas or even feelings, so you get a sort of genuine aspect to the forum.  It's become an important part of my almost daily routine.

 It's become an important part of my almost daily routine.

It is part of my activity every day too.  And I haven't picked up my bike yet.  I have found forums like this to be very helpful when you own one of the machines.  The people here are honest and helpful in their approach to questions. 

Between this board and a few other internet sources, I expect to find all the information I need to keep my 65 running for the next 20 years.  I'll be 82 then and probably not able to kick it anymore.

Was it you, Fred, or someone else whose bike would start so easily when trying to find TDC - off it would go almost by itself?  Maybe at age 82 you will do fine.  There is an old man who walks by my place everyday, he's in his late 80's and has filiariasis (elephantiasis) in one leg, something like seventeen children, and on his way back from the plantation in the evening, there he comes, a big gunnysack load over one shoulder, a cane knife in one hand, moving along like you wouldn't believe.  I think he still provides for his huge family. He gives me hope. The new bike will keep you going and keep you young.

Fred: When you reach 82 you'll want Electic Start.  ::)  Maybe even a sidecar.  :D In fact we could have 1K member's by then too.  ;)

Hey Guys, its all about humor..........without it, we'd be a bunch of stuffed shirts.  I , for one , really appreciate all the inputs to this forum.  They have been helpful, interesting, long winded but always humorous.    Its 52' in Mich in Jan..how bout that.   Can riding season be far behind.............dg
