F--K WHAT A WEAPON, I thought about putting a paddle on the back of a tough 1200 sporty once and having a crack at it.
Man that would be heaps of fun, I have 99 WR 400 with a few trick bits, That i brought new and ride a few enduros every now and then for a bit of fun, Have you ever had it on a dyno? What sort of times does it do?

I been playin drums since I was a kid. Play in a local rock band in a small way. Barbeque. Canoeing and camping with the kids. Homebrewin.Welder by trade and weld alot at home for myself, smokers and such. Its weird I'm reading through everyone lists and I'm seeing alot of the same things comin up. Including things on mine. Almost seems as if this hobby attracts people of a certain mindset and lifestyle. Not that suprising really but its cool too see. You guys rock. :D

Build guitars, dulcimers, traditional longbows, boxes and other things of wood; gardening (Vegies...not flowers, that 's the wife); bicycling; hiking; writing, playing guitar, banjo, dulcimer, uke and hand drumming. Oh, and once in a while I try to work for the man, but that is comming to an end as I can draw a pension in about 10 months.....and I am not working a minute longer for anyone else after that.

A fellow golfer. Golf is my number 1 hobby, I'm good enough to compete for low gross in most local tournaments (depends on who shows up). Other than that, poker, mountain biking, fishing, hunting, sports betting, skiing, and avoiding the wife while drinking. Used to be into on/off road motorcycles but that was lost somewhere along the way, now I don't even own one, same goes with scuba.

the big fat sumbich is a blood python. this one is about 15lbs now and about 4 ft. my other one isa little bigger. these snakes dont get long, maxin out at about 7 ft , but weighin in at about 30lbs. at full grown,,, they will take piglets or a few big rabitts for supper,,, or a small dog.
the one with white on it is a piebald ball python. this is a morph of a normal ball python. im hopefully breeding two pairs this season.

Nice looking snakes you got there Spooky. Not real big on snakes myself but do enjoy looking at the color patterns. That piebald is an eye-catcher. I like all color morphing patterns that nature offers up. I have a couple paint horses as my nod to natures sense of humor. Good luck on "future" generations with the piebalds.
