    Big wuss! Stick the O2 tank in one of those strap on the gas tank bag and just play hard! Hey, that's my initials! John Patrick Hanlon.

    The waiting is pretty much what my local dealer is testing for. Learn to ride before a Busa.
    Busa is NOT first bike material. Poor little rich kids need not apply.
    Even with my motorcycle license from 1968 he asked me take the class if I wanted one.
    Gotta respect a dealer who would rather not sell than sell to a noob who would show off and kill they self in 2 days.

    Dude,
    I can't come up with everything! I'm still trying to get my rollator in my Elantra!

    Maybe we should just sit in the park like the old dudes in the movies and play chess. Sure would be easier sometimes. "Wipe my chin and wheel me back to my room. Pron at 11PM" NEVER[​IMG]

    To all those people who haven't the faintest clue what we are talking about - GOOD!
    My CF panels are in Langer's possession. Good man for someone so young.
    When they arrive I can get back on thread. I will weigh them and post pics when they arrive - if these get lost I still know some people that will put the hurt on whoever 'misplaced' them for a 12 pack. But I would have to share a beer or two with them! SIGH! The pressure.

    In the mean time, I'm sitting on the floor with the Rocketfish/Lian-Li case pondering what to do with it. What to do with the Soyo Dragon? What to do with the Cooler Master ATCS HTPC case. What to do with 2 G5 cases. What to do with a brand new PowerMac case. What to do with the new Q6600 G0 system. I'm down to 8 pounds medical weight restriction - no not your money guys.

    I'm cleaning my space.

    Ebay will protext the inocent

    I received a message from eBay that my SSHD seller is no longer an active member of eBay and to file a claim with PayPal for my money back.
    That's just not right. This seller was always good to buy from for Opticals and mechanical HDDs. Gone now. I wonder what a person has to do to get the eBay police to shut them off?
    One package I don't have to wait for.
    Very nice though that the monies are secure and I will eventually get it back.

    Hey jhanlon, love the mod so far, I've been lurkin' this one for a loooong time now. :thumb:

    Crap, just found out I can upload photos at work...I mean home...:worried: Suffice it to say, somebody at Dell screwed up when they sent me a replacement for a dead HDD. Packing slip says "Seagate 120" opened the box and there's a Samsung 32gig SSD staring me in the face. Oops!

    Unfortunately it's for my boss' work computer, otherwise it may have been "liberated" by now.

    Computer gods, why do you torment us so?!?!?!?!

    E-bay is so scam spooked right now, they probably ban both parties when one pulls a double-deal. A lot of buyers are scamming, but EB takes their side and assumes the seller is the scam.

    I return... exhausted and fed up of air travel (took me over 22.5 hrs to complete my 1.15hr flight... looong story).

    I shamefully admit that I still have your panels. I lugged them all the way north only to have forgotten your address... and I had no .net access for a few -painful- days.

    I have a carbon fiber briefcase and I always love to watch the look on the securities faces when scanning my carry on... lol. It shows up as a big dark blue rectangle on their screen. Followed by that 'smell test' and careful examination.

    This time I left the case at home, but your panels were stowed in one of the more 'hidden' pockets in my suitcase. Security gave me a hell of a time because they wouldn't let me just show them how to get at the panels.

    (my flight delays were not security related... lol)

    At least you didn't end up in a river! Did you?
    I've been off line today helping another Crippled Old Biker Buzzard.
    I've been making recovery disks for a good friend's Compaq. Win XP Media Center 2005? Where does that get real? 17 CDs, dude doesn't have a DVD burner! I should charge by the hour. [​IMG]

    I did get to take his Panhead for a spin. Temptation sucks. Panheads have a sound all their own and the ridgid frame with the springer- nostalgia for me. The Shovelheads and Evos just don't light my fire, and the Vrod is a putz.

    I'll send PM.

    Knucklehead or bust!
    This one's a '46, and she purrs -potato...potato...potato...potato...potato...potato. This was taken before the old man started restring it to true 100%. There was no chrome in 1946, so there was a lot of sandblasting to be done.
    [​IMG]

    No rivers, but I did go through 3planes before taking off, and then had return to Toronto because they couldn't land, and it goes on like this for another ~16hrs or so. Suffice to say I was ready to set people on fire.

    Custom Texas Style Case

    I put together a case for H2O-C7 based on highly technical drawings from Texas.

    The original packing box with the requisite black marked out mailing address:

    Internal vibration damping and aural dampening material installed around the internal alum. structure:

    Integral dust suppression system comes next:

    Everthing installed into custom case:

    An the patent applied for "Iris Door Opening":

    Those Texans are really into state of the art and pushing the bounds:

    Colorado has a lot of dust. Windows open all year. Blind, diabetic Black Lab contributes too.

    Yours is superior. It has realistic battle damage. The Half-Life modders have been trying to replicate that for years.
