    worked on one of the bikes this morning. steering head bearings on a scooter, adjust and lube..... really, how hard can it be?

    worse than replacing the cams on the Kawasaki Ninja it seems!

    half way through the job I realize I've still got the Elgin on..... dammit!

    the big lump in the middle? (looks like a wiper motor)...... servo motor and CPU controlled hydraulic valves to control the front suspension

    seriously, what the hell were they thinking!!!

    my son, a trained mechanic, was horrified. He said he'd seen nothing that crazy under anything he'd worked on.

    Spent three days in Kerrville, Texas with my wife, attending a training seminar sponsored by her office.

    The rose gold Longines tagged along.

    Bummed around both Kerrville and Fredericksburg on Saturday wearing the Speedmaster for a change.

    Vixa Type 20, issued to the French Air Forces circa 1954. I've read that these Vixa are sometimes considered the least durable of the Type 20-21, perhaps due in part to the lack of shock protection on the German-made Hanhart caliber 40 movment.

    This example certainly makes a lie of that belief, with fin de garantie marks showing it was in service for nearly three decades before retirement.

    And still going strong today, after three decades more. :thumbsup:

    No, I'm not in the military and I am not trying to coordinate. My wife picked the Nato before I got dressed
