Motorcycles, tools, and garages! A little bit of everything mechanical and technical.

Blast from the past!

In my continuing search for POJ pictures, my parents turned up a couple of semi-related bike pics. This is the bike I ended up with after POJ- a 1976 Kawasaki KE175. We had a love hate relationship that I may explain someday in my POJ story. The other bike is a '70's Honda XR100 ridden either by my little bro or a friend. It was a different friends bike, the helmet belonged to someone else, and I just cant tell. Sad, eh? We had a lot of fun on this bike. Clint would race CR250's around the track and WIN. That is until he snapped the rear shock IN HALF and ripped the muffler off a lap later. Enjoy!

Thanks for sharing. I like your stories and pictures. You have a way with words. Have you ever thought about writing?

I think about a lot of things. DOING them is an entirely different matter...

I *am* trying to write the "story" of POJ. I dont know that I could write fiction, my imagination doesnt really roll that way. To much engineering blood in my system. I have "the touch".

These pictures are way cool!

And I could see a fun story about POJ.

One suggestion...you might want to see if you can format your pictures slightly different...maybe just make sure they are all either to the right or left. Just an idea though.
