    another lost ridin day spent with my boy..when I asked him what he wanted to do he said "show me how an engine works" sooooo we did a full service on the Yammer. He helped me tear down what needed to be torn down check what needed checkin change what needed changin and after showing him on one cylinder how to set the valve lash, let him loose on the other, all I had to do was double check it...on the money...It may have taken all day to pull the service but it was a most enjoyable day. THAT DOES IT IM LOOKIN FOR ANOTHER BIKE AND TEACHIN HIM HOW TO RIDE!!!!!!
    cant wait till he gets his liscence now. (he's a big flirt girls look out)

    I am the step father to a great 21 year old who I have raised alone for the last 5 years. There is not one day that I regret having spent the last 16 years raising him. We are still good friends it is not a bond of blood but I could not have a better son. Time lost riding to spend time with your children is an investment in their future and it is lost time only if you are not there for them.
