I'm trying to get Ivan to go since JW says he'll be in London then. It'd be great to get Ivan out on a trip. He's been concentrating on college now for a couple years and he's getting grumpy. He needs a good ride (motorcycle ride).

Besides that, Wichita would be a good staging stop for me both ways even though it's an easy 630 miles. It would be less stressful and I would get to drink some of Ivan's beer.

I am not going to London till November. The issue is I am tapped out for time off between London and NC (XSSE) so I cannot go harrass the Colorado crew. I figure sending you in my place is enough to harrass anyone.

And if Ivan comes along Colorado may NEVER be the same.

IVAN is the person that came up with the auto tensioner swap and, like me, trbig, Bigfoot, Russ79, Montreaux_Blue, and Vincer is one of the original "Banned Bunch". Maybe someday when you grow up we'll tell you the story.

trbig, Bigfoot and I are the only ones who are still active here. Montreaux_Blue and Vincer are deceased and Russ79 and Ivan just don't participate anymore on the forum.

Well, I tell ya sonny...................

It all began back in aut 8, mebbe aut 9. I don't remember for sure. My handle was still XSokieSPECIAL then..............HA ha ha ha........

That story is too long and there are things that went on behind the scenes that don't need to be discussed here. That's a story for a campfire and a group of beers.

BTW.....here's the thread where Ivan introduced his discovery of the auto tensioner mod.

Just bantering with ya' BA, no need to bring up old wounds, etc out in the open!

So, you are coming then? Good to have some Midwest representation. I grew up in Manhattan, KS and my folks have been in Seminole, OK for the past 8 years as my dad finished out his years til retirement with the civil service, as a dentist for the Seminole Indian Nation.

I did the ACCT to both my XS's. Thanks in absentia, Ivan... He still live in Hutch?

Well, all this talking I've been doing I just about have to show up now.

I gotta learn to keep my mouth shut.

Naw, I helped Ivan move from Hutch a couple years ago. He's in Wichita with his new bride.

I was going to redo my reservation for Friday through Sunday but I gave blood this afternoon, then came home and fell asleep until Motoman called and woke me up.

Oops.... I'll give 'em a call mahnyahnnah.
