Weekend happenings

December 11, 2010

As Saturday comes to a close, I figure I should catch everyone up on the happenings over the last few days here.

I mentioned last post that we have pulled up our roots and moved back up to Southern Utah. So far it’s been a month since we left, and I am liking it up here. This part of the state is not quite as pious as it was up north. Interestingly enough there is a good mix of folks. While not as religious, I have to say it is very relaxed as far as the vibe I get from the people I have crossed paths with so far.

Today I decided to fiddle around on the motorcycle some. While there is a lot I would like to do, all that costs money. So to stay in the cheap seats I just did a quick handle bar change. I had a set of drag bars for the Chopper project. But since it is still stalled, I thought I would go ahead and commandeer them.

So here is how it started out today.


And after.


The hardware now looks giant on it, so if I like it, I will probably start saving up for replacement controls.

On the tech front, I decided to try and sign up for the Chromium pilot laptop from Google. I have no idea if I will get picked or not. But what’s the worst that can happen? Plus I am curious to see what the OS is like.

If you’re interested, you can sign up for it here.

And I thought I would give you something else to click on.

So here’s a little Dale Watson for you all.

    Jeez – I turn my back for five minutes and you completely change everything!…
    I hope your latest move went ok – you don’t seem to feel settled anywhere at the moment.

    The Fiat is looking and sounding sweet – when that project is finished, you could bring it to the UK and name your price.

    And the ‘Wing – those new bars are excellent. It’s not my call, obviously, but I see the direction for the bike being an end result where you think at first it is a stock restoration. Then you see the bars are different…and maybe the stitching on the seat is new…and the carbs have a slightly different intake…and the filler cap is a custom piece…

    Anyway – I’ll stop interfering…I hope things are good for you and T and the little dudes. And major respect on your school results…

      Hey Grummash!

      How in the world have you been? Hope life is treating you well.

      The move went great. Getting settled in and making the house feel like a home. I am trying to keep the blog going, of course some days are better than others.

      Good to know you are still living the digital life.

      I have gone back and forth on the bike. If I change it too much it means I will have to tear it apart and won’t be able to ride. But considering the chop is still in a buncha pieces, I have been seriously tempted. I am thinking about trying out a new seat since the one I have is more suited for a tourer. It is fun to play with. And you know me, I can’t leave well enough alone. 🙂
