Pirate ID card, scowl and a Bandana :p

It is a good idea to check every nut and bolt on the bike once in a while. Also look for cracked mounting brackets. I lost a horn off of my Electra Glide once as I was going down the Interstate! I circled around, stopped and found it. I bought the antique/ vintage horn to replace it.

********* I almost forgot: HD speedometer cables tend to go bad and break and mine did at about 40,000 miles and my service dept Bud told me that if I'd taken the cable off of the speedometer housing and dry lubed/ graphite/ oil combination, it would have never failed.

Seafoam, Lucas or any other Carb/ injection cleaner would just love to 'swish' around in your tank and clean things.

Believe it or not Asians CAN eat soup with chop sticks: Tilt soup bowl, extend lips to bowl and use sticks to direct liquid and noodles, shrimp, mushrooms, etc. I've seen it many times.

Man I'm hungry! In Los Angeles, lots of the good and family owned (Authentic) Asian food places served a soup called: Three sea Chow-ma-mien, probably spelled incorrectly but it had fresh noodles, shrimp, sea cucumber, clams, carrots, onions and a very big dose of Cayenne pepper to make it initially very hot!!!!! It would bring a smile to your face and sweat to your brow;)

That reminds me that I haven't seen the key to my Springer in about 5 years. It was on a ring with a fob that was from the Kent Constabulary in England. Given to me by a guy named Ari, from Iran. Who I got wickedly drunk in a bar in Fairmont, West Virginia.

I'm going to have to make a serious effort to find it, because it really does mean a lot to me. The fob. I haven't needed a the Springer key in about 15 years.
