Wow, try to give someone a compliment and they act like you just asked them to give up their seat on United.

You're killing me. Yeah, that was some weird stuff. Good thing airline service didn't start out that way.

I caught the tail end of the golden age of flying and beating the tar out of passengers was definitely not SOP.

And yes, i can remember when most planes had a "gold" candelabra, on the serving trays, that the flight people, pushed through the aisles.

Yes, back in the day.

I replaced the dash lights on my Royal Enfield with T10 LED globes. I had to make a 2 way LED globe out of 2 T5 LED and the carcass of one T10 LED so that the I can use it on the indicator dash light. The way they had it wired the current reverses between left and right indicators, so you only get an indicator light for turning one way if you use an LED. What a PITA that was. The stock globes are so dull you can't see them after sunrise, no matter how dark the day is...

Ducati's came stock with gold rims for years. I'm just carrying on tradition.

I'm getting better at electrics, but yeah they can be a real hassle. Nice work. That Royal Enfield is one cool motorcycle.

Well, that is one of looking at it. Methinks you carry the gold to the extremes, but what do i know.

I should not admit this, but when i had my 1997 built 1216 c.c. Bandit, i painted the wheels, wait for it, BRIGHT GOLD! Yes, you lunatic, gold. It looked great with the candy maroon, livery. Body work and frame candy maroon, and the wheels gold.

Her classmates are green with envy that she has the coolest dad ever!

Can't help but look at a sidecar and smile. They attract a crowd everywhere they go. Truly classic.

Did you ride it in? Looks like it is snowing your way. You do have traction control though
