Correct you are. I changed it in the "Bikes" field but not the signature. Should be corrected now.

Needed to order a new battery. The old one gave up the ghost and wouldn't recharge.

Is that why your new to you bike failed to start during FART '17? Or our you talking about a car, pacemaker, or some other battery? :/

No, the failure to start and repeated efforts seemed to kill of the 7 year old battery. :wave:

A BIG SHOUT OUT to Greiffster and all of our relentless administrators for making this happen. I wish I could take credit for the idea, but one of our faithful members woke up from a nap :rofl::stir: and realized he'd been having a nightmare where he was trapped scrolling through page after page looking for posted routes only to find posts about plans to sell a bike, plans to buy a bike, plans to attend, plans to un-attend, plans to get a new battery for a pacemaker, mower, flashlight, garage door opener, cell phone, laptop, dog collar and the Cracker Jacks Decoder Ring. :stir: . . . and beer caps - good thing you don't need batteries to open those!

Don't let them give you a hard time. They only need a re-introduction because they CRS. :whistle:

Oops! I may have spoken too soon. 25th college reunion is that weekend. So I may have to come up Weds and leave Friday :grin:

It's also the 25th anniversary of the founding of our fraternity chapter, and since I was a founder, it's kind of a big deal. Ok, let the "frat boy" ribbing begin :lurk:

But you said, let it begin! :) You know it's all in jest my friend. I took tons of crap from my Sigma Chi and TKE room mates when I was doing Calculus homework on bar night. :) Of course, they got jobs out of college stocking shelves as a rep for a potato chip company. lol.

Being a frat boy is all right in my book...if your nickname was 'Bluto.'

Don't be so sure about the limits of Photoshop. Case in point - look how distorted and excessive Photoshop made this anonymous Indy 500 intoxicated enthusiastic spectator look after his intoxicated thoughtful friend in the hat poured water on him (he was out of booze) ! :ohboy:

The wife and her friend in the visor were not amused with either of us. :dontknow:

 

Edit: Note the grass stain on my friends shirt. He fell out of a Ricksha in the infield . . . . :rofl:

There is quite a colorful narrative that begins about 5:45am leading up to that photo, and as one can imagine, the story continues afterwards. It will make for a good parking lot tale sometime if anyone has interest. We hold 16 seats between 3 immediate rows of seats for the 500 - so there is more going on here unseen than just the unknown fan in awe seated next to me taking a picture of the Modern Version of David.

 

In my defense, I will only say that Brian - the water pouring gentleman - and his son had taken his sons GF for a tour of the aforementioned Infield. Brian's son had left me in charge of a large container (accounts as to the relative amount of beverage that was remaining in the container when the chain of custody fell to me is disputed between several parties) of his seemingly innocuous beverage concoction. In their absence, I discovered how tasty said beverage was. And curiously addictive. :beer: By the time they returned from the infield, the mystery concoction had worked its magic not only on Brian and his son (who off camera is seated - but only because he is propped up), but also on . . . wait for it . . . Yours Truly ! Shortly after this photo was taken (for posterity purposes :spittake:) my wife offered to hold my drink for me. It seemed very thoughtful to me at the time, since I'd dropped my phone twice by then :wave: - I figured she was wanting to spare the innocent fans seated in front of me the possibility of me spilling my beverage on them. . . :spittake: Alert readers will have surmised by now that IF that was a concern of hers, it was not her primary concern. :rofl:

 

Many in our group that year I have known all of my life. Even so, many were overheard saying variations of this sentiment: I have never seen Dave so . . . colorful. I must have had a great tan that year??

 

And yes, I did get the recipe for the addictive beverage :whistle:
