Great- you can show off that new LH engine cover!

I never get tired of looking at your beautiful red Standard. The wife would be elbowing me if she were attending.

Used to be, whenever Kurt got a bike, one seemed to fall into my lap about the same time.

I called it "keeping up with the Boehringers".
