I'm one of these guys.
Never had one, and more than likely never will get one. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Do you have a regular license? I drove a bike for years without getting a motorcycle license, but I've always had a regular license.

Maybe its just me be stubborn, but I just don't feel the need to pay a tax and take a test to prove I'm good at something I've been doing since I had a 50cc pit bike when I was 8. That's my outlook. I should have been grandfathered into a license or something. I'm only 22, but I have 14 years of riding experience, with only once crash when I was 11, and that was on a 150cc KTM that was WAY TOO BIG for me at the time.

Yes, I have regular license, as well as my CDL and Humvee license.

This weekend I went to a republican fundraiser, camping, and then a ranch party that was the ultimate redneck paradise. Cute girls, a pool, skeet shooting, ATVs, and lots of booze. I'm incredibly sunburned but it was well worth it.

I repaired the toilet in my condominium without even consulting a book or a website about toilets. I just relied on my own wits to figure it out. And I did it at 12:30 am. Now I feel like a great champion, like Harley Race prior to Starrcade 1983.

An opossum was killed in the street in front of my house, and someone one kicked it to my curb. I had to bag it and dispose of it. There were tiny little babies still alive. Not a chore I enjoy.

Woke with a raging hangover, yet I still flattened several boards (by hand plane), prepped and glued the three together for a tabletop. I'm killing time until I can remove the glued panel from the clamps.

If the possum was still warm, you should have skinned, quartered and fried it. Possum innards are particularly good over top some fresh dandilion greens.

Poor opossums. I can't imagine losing a parent at such a young age.

Lessee, if any on you are so inclined, Google "Brookville, PA, man tries to resuscitate dead possum". I shit you not, this happened about 20-25 miles from where I live. Guy was in the middle of a well traveled highway, performing CPR on a dead possum.

I don't know, I guess I was just moved by the sight of the wounded opossum. I gave it my best effort, which is more than my detractors, including the police, can say for themselves.

If Neo had been with me that fateful day, ain't no way that opposum dies. Ain't no way.

Neo would have done CPR on this opposum and got an erection out of it...

If the accident did happen on a week-end, you would have been fucked.

If nothing else, Neo or someone should have come to remove it for me. I couldn't leave it there on the curb right in front of my steps, so I manned up and moved it and its little ones that were clinging on for dear life - too small to have survived, btw.

Replaced all four sway bar endlinks on my new car. Two of the bolts were seized so I got to cut it off with an angle grinder.

Replaced my garbage disposal. Actually a lot easier than I expected.

Painted (with a brush) the rest of the new siding on the garage and then re-painted the front area. Also pruned a tree with a pole-saw.

I totally need to look into a sprayer, though.
