PostTue Jul 19, 2016 5:05 pm Hello From a Second Gen.
Hello to all. I am new to the art of motorcycles, but not so new. I am Sun Rats oldest Daughter. I inherited her bike. I have yet to ride it for the first time since it is currently out of commission: from sitting for a time in the garage with a busted clutch and other oddities. I am hoping to get i...

Loved that guy, damn. Every now and then you meet someone who reminds you of who you were when you younger, but an alternate universe version who somehow had none of your weaknesses. He inspired me to get my off my ass about a number of things, he was good to to talk to. He was a damn good guy. I gu...

great series of 60's garage comps, but that ain't what this is about. First things first: I've missed you all quite a damn bit for quite a while. Little bit of mushy stuff toward the bottom here: http://www.utmc-forum.org/pub/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16620579&start=30 I didn't actually get any le...

PostMon Sep 08, 2014 9:37 pm AZ's Guzzi Roadster Build
Ever since I bought my Moto Guzzi California in 2001, I have been telling people that I love it because under all that Milwaukee-influenced styling, it's still the same chassis as their very successful endurance racers of the '80's and '90's but with better suspension than you could buy back then. A...

PostMon Oct 13, 2014 7:13 am Mission Complete: DOOM intercept declassified and debriefed
One of the most important elements of Doom, at least to me, has always been the surprises. You just never know who will unexpectedly show, or what strange treat has been smuggled in some saddlebag to share in the parking lot. Other things are well-expected or well-announced, so that anyone intereste...

After a couple years, my KZ750 is legal again! I'm not sure what I'm going to eat later this week, and I can't afford to run much gasoline through it until I get more money, but I feel like I've really accomplished something big in my life.

Quickie update: Pistons are free and the motor is not stuck! Case Cover housing the chain tensioner is damaged beyond repair (shame too since the remainder of the case is lovely). Compression on left side is good Compression on right side is great (relative to a triumph) Carb slides stuck open (duh,...

PostThu Jan 16, 2014 7:43 am Audition tonight, wish me luck!!
A few know, or have seen me reference it elsewhere, but I've been learning to play the bagpipes for 3 years now (my poor, POOR family and co workers). Tonight will be the relative culmination of that, auditioning for my first pipe band. I've got to play 6 tunes, perfectly, solo. Anyway, if you all ...

So one of my Ma's retirement pastimes is painting china. Lots of flowers and such. So I suggested she check out Ralph Steadman and she painted this coffee cup for me. I have the coolest Mom ever.

I did a month long diet experiment thing a while back, sort of a "cleanse" so to speak. I felt awesome, slept like a baby but also learned what i already knew, that life without a quality cup of coffee is no life at all. More akin to being undead than actually alive. I had no idea the exte...

Quick Update: First of all, I want to say THANK YOU to all that made a donation, called, sent texts and emails and asked about our welfare. The fire (8/18) was certainly a shock, and as I write this, we still don't know the cause. Since the investigation is ongoing, I have refrained from writing abo...

Lots of important lessons to be learned from this one. The most important takeaway is that the auteur of the video was fully intentional of it as an over-the-top hipster expression. I stop short of calling it satire, since satire is supposed to be recognizable as such, but as satire, composed with t...

I have been working in museums since 1993 with barely any interruptions, and even in those times I was applying for work and consulting. Most of the work was great: exciting, inspiring, educational, for a good cause, and fun. I got to handle Grizzly Adams' buckskins, Paul Revere's trunk, moon rocks,...

Did CPR on a guy last week for about 20 minutes before the cavalry showed up. No matter how much training you have, I realize now that making the right call at the right time is not something that is possible in real-lilfe scenarios. Part of me wishes I never went down there, wishes I had more of a ...

The original spark for this furor was a FB thread in which someone found the GTA-UTMC thing and basically said “WTF?” Nobody knew where it came from or whether they were even an Ootmic. Sounds like we’ve figured that part out now, but DerG’s reaction was (and I think still is) entirely appropriate. ...
