500cc?


Typo, 200cc. My first motorcycle
was a 175cc, and it was really
fast.


Thought so, 500cc is half a 1980s Chevy Sprint

The B&S mowers in the 50's
and 60's were lucky if they
were 75cc. Terrible.

When I was a kid, my neighbor hired me to cut his lawn while he was on vacation for a month. I decided to let it grow longer before cutting it to cut back on the number of times I needed to mow.

Damn mower engine stalled on grass bigger than a 6 inch wide strip. That was a long day of mowing.

Honda CL175? That was my first motorcycle and probably still my favorite.

Bridgestone 175. My next bike was a
Honda 305. Here's the Bridgestone:

I carry a flashlight with me always,
I use it every day. Lately it's been
a cheap 3 battery LED. But it's
kinda big, 5" by 1". So I spent
$10 and got a Mag-lite penlight.
It takes 1 AAA battery and is as
long as my middle finger and as big
around as the battery. It throws
more light than the 3 battery one
I had. An amazing amount of
light.

It's half the size of this pic, hold
your middle finger up to it and
that's how big it is. My dad would
love this, he always carried a
bulb penlight that was almost
useless.

That's a nice one. I have one about the same size, I've had it more than ten years and I use it all the time. I like that it weighs so little, I can hold it in my mouth.

This one looks like you turn it for the on/off? Mine has a button like an ink pen at the end, which I like how mine works, better than twist. Added: It also has a pocket clip like a pen. I've feared losing mine because I haven't seen another like it, that works so well, puts out this kind of light and only takes one AAA. The first year or so I thought it would just break like many cheap products, but this one is getting some longevity on it.

I have mulitple larger ones, but this tiny one is almost like a friend I've used it so many times. Maglite has always put out a good product.

Will there be a lot of cussing
and throwing of tools involved?
Sure, lets see it.

I've always admired glass blocks, how do they place them?
