About kirkus

I'm a guy, with a lot to do! ...fool me once, shame on - shame on you. Fool me - you can't get fooled again. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall...... Torque is how far you move it. "...the fuel goes in there, through there and out there. . . the black turny thing on the back then goes round and round." "I’m lost. I’ve gone to look for myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait." How do you improve a bacon sammich? More bacon. Two roads diverged in a wood, and / I took the one less traveled by, / And now where the hell am I? "Sometimes half-ass is exactly the right amount of ass." "How hard can it be?" - Jeremy Clarkson

Adventures in Morganeering: Exhaust Wrap

I don’t know what motivates people to squeeze and twist the wrapping on the exhaust? But they have done it enough to mine that it is crumbling. The accepted method of rewrapping them is to take them off of the car, but I found that with patience it is possible to wrap them in place.

Das Bike Projekt Final Entry: October 2009 – August 2018

Well today my journey with my R69s ended, and someone else’s began.
I don’t have the words for how I feel about it right now, but the bike came out exactly as I planned, I had an adventure building it, and I learned a lot along the way. Now it belongs to the next owner, like all of our toys will, eventually. Someone else will become the next custodians, and put their own stamp on them.
