What Happens in Pee Paw's Scooter Shop, Stays in....

I had a pretty good week or so in Pee Paw's Scooter shop. Starting to feel like home. Finished up the DR-Z build, and I am knee deep in stuff to do.

I had a visit from my Grandson, Jake. He loves Pee Paw's motorcycles, hard to tell, huh?



This weekend I pulled the front off of my Miata so I could adjust the doors to make Mrs. Oldtlsdoug happier with the effort required to shut the doors.







Then Gixxerjasen came by and we went riding, I got a good selfie in the shop.





And Today, I got some graphics (wrong year, but close enough) for the DR-Z front number plate, yesterday I installed some Cycra Pro-Bend guards on the Aprilia, and also today, I put LED bulbs in the DR-Z Vapor accessory panel. All in all, very satisfied with the shop, still breaking it in, getting used to everything.









And, also the dang Baby Bandit has lost all fire, so I am researching how to repair the CDI, or the ignition power/fuse, whichever works. A bit annoying, but it is 25 years old and these things happen. Just trying to avoid dropping $500.00 or so on a new one, but I may have to do it.

Thanks Mitch, I am sure there is a country song in that.

Did you call your wife old? Holeeee crapola. Maybe we'll just call her Mrs. TLSDoug from here on out, huh?

RIF. Reading is fundamental, I realize Marines only needed "Kill, Kill, Kill", but I did not call her old, even if she is. And how would she ever know.

You said yourself the DR-Z is light, and heck, there ain't no Harleys around to weigh things down.

Woo Hoo!

Lucky. There's a lot of places to hide your body on that property.

Her family has thousands of acres to hide me if they so chose. I am always nice.
