    I think the rear blinkers look pretty good there mate. I reckon they're an essential item in todays traffic too, I know I always used to run bikes without them but even my old Guzzi is getting some before that goes back on the road and that's too old to need them!

    Well some expected bad news.My dear stepmother died at 12:00 today.
    We all got to spend some time with her yesterday to say our goodbyes.
    She was 61 years young.It is shocking how fast this cancer took her.Right before Thanksgiving she had a believed to be sinus infection.
    We will sorely miss her.
