    Bob, I also had 2 650 Bonnevilles and then a Norton 750 and a BSA 650. They were fast bikes for the time. Lotta vibration though, was constantly tightening things up. That BSA was fast though!

    My first bike was an 82 CB900 Honda, at 17 by all rights I probably should have died. This has a lot more power, but I'm a lot better rider. Keep thinking about upgrading to a newer model, but this one has done right by me for 80k km so far. I think I can hit 100k km on it.

    When I was in the Navy in 1974 and stationed in Norfolk a friend bought I guess one of the first Kawi 900. Took it for a ride on I 64. So fast it scared me.

    Ditto. I had a '74 Daytona. Wish I still had it.

    After having the gearbox rebuilt I replaced all of the Philips head cover screws with Allen heads. No more problems.
    I rode a 441 Victor in the dirt. Loved thumping past all those 2 strokers :) Really loved those Limey bikes.

    The Limey bikes are what I grew up on. The Japanese refined the vertical twin and enough said.They did do a great job though. I did some dirt biking and had a Husqvarna 400 Cross. Man , that that bike would go up a wall as long as you leaned over the handlebars. Friend of mine had a CZ Jawa bike. What a bike, never got to ride it though.
    Lets ' not forget Bultaco bikes. They were pretty good.

    Just checked on my brews from Monday and Tuesday. Both pitched with Mangrove Jack's Empire Ale slurry. Mondays brew, on the right, has all but finished active fermentation and the Krausen is dropping already. This yeast is a beast. Two Brews.jpg

    Kettle-soured Kottbusser should be ready to package this weekend. Nicely tart and grainy.

    Just remember us poor craft beer junkies while you're gone :)
    I traveled for several years to earn a buck and really enjoyed the different food and drink. Get it while you can.

    Yeah, I only work a few months a year, but make enough to spend the rest of the time sitting home and brewing beer!

    Ain't retirement great?

    EDIT:So what is the limit for importing beers duty free?

    I honestly haven't any idea. We pretty much go where we go and sample the local flavors. .Earlier this year it was Ireland. Next month it'll be Bend, Oregon. Our youngest is in St. Louis, MO, so that will likely be on the top of our list. Nothing like sampling beer and food at their origins.
