My favorite thing? I like my Dogs, they're always happy to see me, loyal to the end. Schnauzers are special that way :grin:

I like elephants too, it saddens me to see them exploited in circus arenas. I'm glad those traditions are changing.

Just the usual stuff.
Guzzis (mine), girls (mine of course!), grappa (ah, those three G's!), champagne, trappist beers, Islay single malts.
Elaboration superfluous.

Besides my family, K class flat bottoms.  The race starts around 2:12.  I have a flat bottom, but not a K, I just like to watch them.

I used to work for the circus circumcising the baby elephants. The pay wasn't that great but the  tips were huge.  :grin:

Adidas Sambas
Don't know why. Go down the sports shop look what's on offer, invariably leave with another pair of black and white Sambas. I must love them, never really given it much thought.

Sonoran Desert.

Pastry.

The manifestation of torque - in all things.

The languages, Arabic and English though Arabic is a frustratingly fleeting thing with me.

Single malts - highland only. No peat please.

Well crafted knives.

Marksmanship - every single component of it.

A slightly unpredictable though dedicated dog. The boring ones add little to my life.

Campfires or bonfires - hey, point of fact, excluding torque, everything above can be combined in one fine activity.

Do NOT google Edison and 6,600-volts AC.

Favorite things?
Old mechanical devices of any sort with their sounds, sights and smells.
Boston cream doughnuts.
Sunshine on my face on a cold day riding my motorcycle.
The smell of my wife's hair after she gets out of the shower.

Sound of a P&W 2800 radial at full throttle when you hit the water/meth switch.  Such a fine strong thing to hear.

Anything by Pink Floyd, the Beatles, Lucinda Williams or Willis Allen Ramsay

My daughter's smile

wow, Dusty.  You are full of surprises.   I love elephants too. 

Did you see the picture recently of the little guy who fell into a hole in Thailand and couldn't get out?

 Thanks Seth . An old GF and I were at the Tulsa zoo in 1970 . One of the baby elephants escaped from the habitat and walked right up to us . Momma wasn't far behind , not much the handlers could do to stop her . We remained calm , and Mom didn't seem to get overly excited when her baby gave us a hug with its trunk . Amazing creatures , and that taught me a great lesson .

 The old Motorcycle Days event in Steamboat Springs CO . A wonderful AHRMA National in a great place . I will admit the horrible short track that was used for the flat track event was awful .
