Scenic overlook in central Indiana?  :smiley: Covered bridge I can do, but there is a frog strangler coming this afternoon.

I’ll grab it to keep it rolling.
I hope to be on a Guzzi next time. I changed the rear tire on the V11 Sport and mission creep appeared. Flushing, cleaning, and lubing whatever I can reach now.  So, Kaw it is.  Grab.

Been a while since I contributed. Thought I'd give it a go.

Grab:



Little late 20th century style bicycle repair shop. No retail. And Rockwellian in the amount of traffic, from kids on Coasters to a 93 Merlin titanium with Full Dura Ace groupo in the very tiny shop. Only hung his shingle 18 months ago, transplant from Western PA

New Tag: specialty/focus repair shop. Preferably featuring combustion engines. This is an air cooled VW shop nearbye. They needn't bother with a sign, as you can see. If you're on facebook, they're worth a like/follow for the moto porn on near BAT level, Buggy Works Inc Indianapolis IN. Website by the same name for the facebook averse.

Do they do machine work? I have a couple of heads that need dual plugging and boring for big jugs. If I could (cough cough) pay someone to do it, I wouldn't have to, and I could continue with my little airplane project.

That’s certainly my impression, Chuck. Extensive engine work/rebuilds/custom builds

Thanks for compliments on the bike. Fortunately hadn’t been messed with too badly by previous owners.

Grab!
I must admit I had forgotten that "famous" part of the previous tag, but here's a statue of someone who's A) famous locally, having a street, a play and a restaurant named after him, and not only B) Italian, but C) whose parents both came from the Lago di Como area. So I claim bonus points, as well  :grin:

I give you Caspar Donato Brambani, an industrious, socially responsible industrialist, a progressive contributor to society and towards his employees. Also president of the neighbourhood association, so there's your president.

New tag: A diving tower!

Bonus points if it's built to resemble a goose, like this one (in the distance)  :tongue:
(A diving board is accepted, I guess.)

This is the 10 meter tall diving tower in Portage Park, Chicago, IL. Great day for a swim. Tough to photograph a white tower through the trees.

Nicely done, my friend!! And braving the neighborhoods of Chicago for the cause!  :bow:

Show off more of your nicely appointed V7 next time. That’s at least half the fun of this endeavor.

Not really.. a guy just can't replace the Mighty Scura.  :smiley: Here's the story.. I was down to one bike for the first time in *years* and Dorcia said, "What are you going to ride if you get into a situation where you can't find a part for the Lario?"
Hmmm. I like the way you are thinking.  :smiley:
Looked around, and these Enfields are not your dad's Enfield. *Very* good quality and attention to detail, Harris chassis, but still has a long stroke single that I've always loved. It's kind of like a trip back to the 50s and I'm really enjoying it.
It is also the complete opposite to the Mighty Scura. Top speed is about 72.  :grin:
Oh, they nailed the styling, too. I like looking at it. <shrug> Cheap, too. (Guzzi content) What's not to like?
