Lookit What I Can Do!

I started this design a couple of weeks ago and went into total overdrive this morning to finish it.

It's simple and to the point. I like the fact that it's going to be just a one-color silkscreen. I learned more stuff on using Illustrator to do it in a reasonable amount of time.

I like it when things go rather well!

Today I went to the Harley dealer to get gaskets and such to change the oil in the primary. They're now using these really weird solid gaskets that cover the inside of the derby cover. For those who don't know what I'm talking about, it's OK. I didn't know any of this crap when I first started riding many moons ago. Just nod your head knowingly and humor me in the meantime. Anyway, it's going to be interesting to see how that goes. I have to change the primary oil this week...it's already 600 miles overdue.

It's weird that now when I do go into a Harley dealership, I really don't drool over the new bikes anymore. I like the bikes that I have just fine. The only exception to this is when I spot a used police bike on the showroom floor. They're my weakness. I don't know what it is about those bikes that makes me weak in the knees, but I want one soooooooooooo bad! Not like I can afford one, but a girl can dream, can't she?

I'm still concussed but I'm slowly getting better. I can still feel my brain sloshing around if I sit up too fast from lying down or something, but overall I'm much more stable than I was last week. Hooray for my brain! I'm enjoying riding the bike to practice (I still go even though I can't skate) so that I'm not sitting in traffic in the car...ahhhhh, the thrill of almost getting squashed by ignorant SUV drivers is indescribable and yet so delightful.

Tomorrow morning I have to haul my carcass out of bed early and go be on morning tv. That's right, the ol' derby league is going to be on a local morning news show. Supposedly they'll have highlights from it here after it airs, for you non-LA LA Land people. Watch it, it should be hilarious!

You're supposed to change the primary oil? Yikes! I think I'm about 97,850 miles over due then. LOL

BTW, I drool over police bikes, too. I'd love to have one but would want them to leave all the equipment on it. Like the lights and siren. Then I could get back and forth to work a lot faster.

Do they lower bikes to subterranean levels so that your legs will reach the ground?
