02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

Kawasaki KR150 Cyclone
Triumph Sprint RS 955i
Kawasaki KLE500
Kawasaki KDX200
Kawasaki Z750S
Kawasaki KLR650 (in the mail)

Next will be the Triumph Tiger 1050, and a Kawasaki KLX450, still need to decide which one first.

Wish I didn't sell/write off any of them  :'(  'cept maybe the Hyosung, that thing was SUCH a pile.
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.
