Sad bars....

C2 was long overdue for some new bars.

Holesaw to the tubing.
Lathe to the rod (overdid the length live and learn).
 Time to drill out and tap.
Needed to make a tool to hold the tap in place.
 Moyou was not impressed.
Drill it out.
 Tap that bung.
 This is a Hutch shot.
Moyou with the creeep.
 Pre-bent mocked up bars.
 Kyle came through with the late night bend.
I appreciate it!
 Time to weld.
I am horrible at welding....
Moyou was even less impressed with this.
This is before the welds got cleaned up and filled in.
I also took a few inches off the overall wingspan.
 Early mock up.
Hopefully I will be able to get these powdercoated next week.
All the aluminum switch housings are going to get zapped black soon too.
Next up:
Make new sissy bar mounts and bar.

2 hour delay

Hearing those words still makes me feel the same way it did when I was in elementary school.

I tried to make mom proud...
but as always I added a little too much of this...
and a little too much of that....
and now I have brownie on the outside
and squish in the middle (already ate it, it was glorious)

Brownie fail?

Delicious creation?

Red Curry

Rounding out the evening

Vegan red curry and grading
 new normal
tired of cooking alone


Shadows settle on the place, that you left.
Our minds are troubled by the emptiness.
Destroy the middle, it's a waste of time.
From the perfect start to the finish line.

And if you're still breathing, you're the lucky ones.
'Cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs.
Setting fire to our insides for fun
Collecting names of the lovers that went wrong
The lovers that went wrong.

We are the reckless,
We are the wild youth
Chasing visions of our futures
One day we'll reveal the truth
That one will die before he gets there.

And if you're still bleeding, you're the lucky ones.
'Cause most of our feelings, they are dead and they are gone.
We're setting fire to our insides for fun.
Collecting pictures from the flood that wrecked our home,
It was a flood that wrecked this home.

And you caused it,
And you caused it,
And you caused it

Well I've lost it all, I'm just a silhouette,
A lifeless face that you'll soon forget,
My eyes are damp from the words you left,
Ringing in my head, when you broke my chest.
Ringing in my head, when you broke my chest.

And if you're in love, then you are the lucky one,
'Cause most of us are bitter over someone.
Setting fire to our insides for fun,
To distract our hearts from ever missing them.
But I'm forever missing him.

And you caused it,
And you caused it,
And you caused it
