The Wall

a Frankenbike.

so, the engine is a 1974 bmw r90/6. that was the last year for a kick start on the left side. but the frame is a 1975 r75 and the tank is an older /5 of some sort. it’s got san jose pieces on it: fork stiffener, clamp on the triple tree; reinforced swingarm. it’s got a clear title, but it’s listed as a 1976. numbers don’t match. but i don’t really care. it runs like it’s brand new.

To all of our ticket holders: THANK YOU! We’ve crossed the 5000 tickets sold milestone! And the show is still over 6 months away. But ticket prices will go up, and as you can see, after the last few mezzanine seats are sold at the Sunday matinee, only Grand Tier and Upper Tier seats remain. Because students are often the most strapped for money, and not always the first to buy tickets, we’re calling on al

we never named the rock

only now, after all these years, do i realize we never named the rock. of course, we haven’t been the kind of people who had a name for everything. now that i think about it, my kids are lucky they got names. but the rock has been with us since july 18, 1977. i’ve carried it from the dried up river bed to the car, inside the house on lisa gaye lane; to our first apartment on houston street in chattanooga;

The year was 1987 and for sure, I’d never heard of http:// or .com or spam–  and wouldn’t understand it if someone tried to explain it to me. Not that I understand it now, but; I do have a website.
