I figured that I would be the only one using mail to send my humble offering, I am pleased to see that I am not alone. Truth be told, I did not even have a compute r until I got my2013 tourist in chunks and my nephew told me about you all. Thanks to all who helped me and to you John and the moderators that keep this going. I'm pretty sure my scooter would still be in the basement without SS. Having it set in the basement made me cry, but I'm OK now

there is no problem so complex, nor situation so dire, that its solution can not be found in the skillful application of high explosives.

Hey John, thanks for the wondrous , useful ,yet somehow twisted site. They say you have to be crazy to own a side car, and even crazier if it’s Russian, and totally insane if you want to wrangle all of us. I am in.

Super Glue works well though!
