    Nice collection,those little Aermacchi/Harleys have become quite collectible and are going up in value fast.

    Looks like you have all the bases covered with both an FX and an FL,I had an '84 FXRS Lowglide that I often miss,put 125,000 on that one,great bike.
    On my second E-glide now,the wife likes to go with so I need lots of storage lol.

    Took this last Friday,doesn't look too bad for a bike half way round the clock it's second time.:biggrin_25525:
    95" +.010 over SE 10.25 pistons,Baisley SS ported heads,S&S 570G cams,SE CV44 carb & SE breather,Dynatek ignition,Bub's Rinehart true dual exhaust.
    Dynotuned 105hp/110tq at the rear wheel.

    Well I'm back and now a CDL class A grad with hazmat,doubles/triples and tanker endorsements,holding a TWIC card as well.
    The job hunt is on,looking at paying my OTR dues with a typical training company till I can land a good local job,might be getting on with May or Schneider.

    Well it's been a while,almost 11 years already since my first post here (####! Worked at both May and Schneider hauling freight then moved on to local gigs. I drove chip truck for 4 years (wood chips) and then got into pulling tubs (end dumps) and driving dump trucks of various types,really liked side dumping a lot better than truck and pup. I did landfill work pulling containers 'n possum bellies,ran walking floors and belt bottom live floors. Hauled demolition in end dumps rock tubs dump truck and pup and side dump,been flat bedding and a lot of other stuff.Hauled sand rock and gravel,worked on building logging roads and major highways,been under asphalt grinders on airport runways and pulled backwards up a mountainside by a CAT hauling chunks from logging operations to pulp mills.What a long strange trip it's been but last September I think I landed my final gig working for Schnitzer Steel Industries hauling scrap metal. I run flatbed a lot but also end dumps and dry vans and sometimes roll off drop boxes.It's a union job with a pension,hope I can do another 6 and a half years then retire. Meanwhile good hourly pay and benefits,home every night and weekends off with some Saturday work always at time and a half. Same start time every day,time and a half over 8 hours and double time over 10 hours.Company supplies uniforms,boots,prescription safety glasses etc etc. 129.JPG 2.jpg 1.jpg cars.jpg

    Yeah,closing in on 64 faster than I like to think about. Bought myself a new Harley and have the last one now 20 years old for sale also bought new. Bought myself a nice 2001 Camaro SS for my 60th birthday and hopped it up a bunch. Gald my work is essential ,slowed up a bit but still holding steady so life is good. 034.JPG 013.JPG
