Dave WhiteheadPresently involved in a research project on torque values for drain plugs & valve caps and the premature failure of crush washers.
Lots of disingenuous riddles and attempts at notoriety in this topic.I've been here briefly, and based on casual observations, am likely to soon be gone.There are some nice people here, and some educated and entertaining people as well...Blessings upon you all.My Introduction: I am nearing 40, and have owned, ridden, and restored bikes at a rate of about 2.3 per year since getting a license to drive at 17.Nearly 1/3 of the bikes I've sampled were Guzzis, and of them all, these were the ones I chose to ride from ocean to ocean.I've managed many but modest achievements with even more modest of means... This was once called being self made.I appreciate most things as esoteric and sublime, but most of the time I wish people would just get to the point or stop talking.and now it is my turn...Peace upon you my brothers.Ben

Okay-The joke post was fun... but here goes.turned 36 last month.Married for 7 years to a recently Guzzi indoctrinated woman, who camped for the first time in her life at the VA Rally this summer.After getting kicked out of my dad's apartment my senior year in high school, I nearly dropped out of high school to work on sport fishing boats in southern California -- I already had the job and was doing it on weekends. Ended up graduating, barely... then moving North and doing a season of salmon, striped bass and rock cod fishing out of SF Bay... that was a long, cold, wet spring and summer. Got out of that gig and went back south to do construction... typical construction job... boss ended up owing me money during every pay period... never paid me what exactly what I was owed, but he had plenty of money to take his wife and kids on trips to Mexico... so after a year of doing that I moved back to SF and decided to go to college... worked 2 jobs supporting myself (retail sales and as an English tutor)... continued working a couple jobs when I transfered to UCSB to finish my degree... ended up getting pretty decent grades and went to law school. Reason I went to law school was to be a District Attorney (so I could help put the bad guys behind bars)... clerked at my local DA's office and HATED it... got into taxation and trusts & estates through a visiting professor at my law school (Thanks IRA!) and haven't looked back!Wife is a native of Alexandria, VA and that is where we have lived now since 1999.2 dogs: bulldog (Beef) and mini Schnauzer (Otto).No kids.Hobbies: fishing, beer, riding, fine wines, (eating) Italian food and B.S.ing with friends.
Sounds like the construction boss was a tooter... I had similar experiences Sean.I was a crazy lost person when I was younger. Now I see why Alanon is so popular... but my parents truly love me and did the best they could. I am older and wiser and thankful for the chance to live through my life the way I have. I have experienced things that many people never will. I am lucky to have learned to love and accept people for the way they are because of it too. If I, like yourself can do my small part to make life work better for people I'm happy. I don't share the fishing hobby though unless the beer or fine wine hobby is included. ;)-Tom
Hey all, I'm Matt from North Dakota and this is my first post!I'm 42 and live a couple miles from Canada (Manitoba) and a couple miles from Minnesota.Just finished school for a career change into respiratory therapy after working in manufacturing for 10 years building busses and luxury tour coaches.After riding the heck out of mini bikes as a kid, I got back into motorcycles ten years ago by buying an old shovelhead (before everybody and their cousin bought an HD). A couple years ago I picked up a naked CBR 600 done up in streetfighter style with motocross handlebars mounted and most of the plastic torn off. Back in August I finally purchased a Moto Guzzi, an '87 SPII to use as my bagger for touring with the girlfriend of 6 years. Now all I need is a dirt bike or dual sport and I will be set!Never married, no kids, one mutt dog.

A real kick in the pants when they have bigger motors installed in them.One wierd drawback is that the landing gear knob is shaped like a flap and the flap knob is shaped like a round gear. :o
