Phil, you may have a record mileage on your F. That says a lot for the bike and the owner. That is a whole lot of seat time.

ART is in the eye of the beholder. I did not find the wreck pictures to be artistic. but rather a brutal reflection of reality which some would consider true art.

Yes that is all true. Believe it or not it only took about 45 minutes to get running but had so many electrical issues from setting in that field for 5 years with no seat or side covers....I only drove it a summer or two and set it aside for about ten years....see my Lazarus thread.

It kept me out of trouble this winter.
