Thanks Pepe. They operate a legal grow facility so I'm sure he'll be as comfortable as he needs to be. He's at peace with it all, now I just have to come to terms with it all 😥
Random pic... The first Ford I shared with him ... 1935 pick'm up truck
Funny, I'm not a biker, but I remember that particular David Mann Easy Rider center spread. I also, for some unknown reason, remember the one with the guy doing a wheelie w/rainbow hair, (I think someone may have had it on a van) a guy racing throwing a drive belt and a guy at the bar kicking his bike because , I assumed, it wouldn't start.
That's the thing about old age, I can remember that, but can't remember the wifes B-day.
Today my God-Son came out to check out his Father's H-D '06 Night Train. His Father asked me to give his son his bike, since he'll be locked up for at least a few more years (or a lot more) and his son just graduated medical school, is already working as a phlebotomist and will turn 26 next week. It was a bitter-sweet afternoon.
@BikerPepe` Wow. Sad story. Hope he’ll be out soon. With a friend like you and fine young man he has in his Son, a doctor no less, he sounds like a stand up guy who made a mistake. We’ve all made them.
You don't know how sad Joe. Unfortunately, he was sentenced to 21 years, arrested at the end of 2018. Long story short... she "Gone Girl'd" his ass in the heat of the #metoo movement. He may have done something worthy of a few years at best but she wanted him gone for good and without a shred of evidence or a witness or anything, she got it with very little effort. Over 20 years and 3 kids together, never so much as a peep of domestic issues beyond her occasionally acting out or her drug abuse that cost them dearly but against all advice, he hung in there with her... "for the kids".
They had just recently separated and she went from walking away with nothing, to using online identity theft and the "just-us" system and now has everything, while he will rot in state max. I honestly don't expect him to survive it but I try to keep positive when I deal with him or his son. I was able to get his bike, his old Ford F250, some of his tools and a Bandit TA he had picked up to restore but that was during the initial chaos and I was threatened many times by both her and the arresting officer. Everything else he'd built up over nearly 50 years is now hers.
I could go on and on over it. It consumed my life for the last year and a half, trying to help him out as best I could but that really wasn't much in the big picture. It's a long and horrifying story but there are too many of those these days.
Appreciate the kind words though. I've become somewhat isolated and I don't hear them often, so it means a lot.
I'm looking for a newer truck, if money was growing in trees, I'd get a Super Duty with the 6.7 in a heartbeat and install a dual bosch CP3/CP4 fuel pump setup.
My question is what is the real world combined MPG of the below:
A) 2011-2014 Super Duty Super Cab with the 6.2 gasser in 4x4 with...
In response to BikerPepe's comment :goodfinge on my lack of "randomness" in the Random pic thread, I figured I'd start this one to post some of the old Ford pics (not originals or mine) I've seemed to have accumulated over the years. Not sure how far this will go, but hey, at least I know @...
Knocking around the idea of selling my '96 Bronco, it's a 351 w/ 114K.
Since my dad passed, a lot of things have changed. Long story short, I'm seriously thinking about building a shop here at my house. I'd like to do it, or most of it, without a loan/mortgage.
I would sell it with or without...
So rather than muddle up the random pic thread with my projects and explanations, I figured I'd start a thread.
So I've been building this pcv system oil catch can. It's been quite the R&D process.
Last night I went to drill and tap for the outlet. I was nervous using the 3/8 npt sized...
Ok guys I like seeing and posting funny jokes and photos. So if we have one spot for them we can stay entertained. Disclaimer: we’re not responsible for coffee on your screen/tablet/iPhone, if you laugh too hard and irritate your significant other, or cause you to loose track of what you were...
