Well, looks like I'll be making my run without the front chin pan. Not enough materials to fix it up. I guess I'll rebuild it with some aluminum angle fer support and aluminum diamond plate fer rigidity next time.

One of the Harbor Freight LED taillights are freaking out and dying already.

That's what they called them at the recyclers.

The things that hipsters ride on the Columbia River, at the mouth of the river that flows out of the Hanford Nuclear facility.

My Dads parents worked Hanford during the war and retired to Richland. Not buried there. And not true their gravesite can be found without the aid of lighting at night. A surplus Geiger counter is always sufficient.
