Hello fellow enthusiasts,

Just making my intro, will post my list of Carver gear in the proper thread later. Been a long time fan of Bob and feel he's the modern day equivalent of Thomas Edison, only more honest Edison didn't actually invent the light bulb, that would be an Englishman by the name of Swan, he just stole the credit).

Howdy Martin,
Edison took credit for alot of things he didn't do. Tesla comes to mind first off !

Yeah, tried that but kept getting blank stares in return. Even tried Da Vinci but they always asked what Bob had painted recently.

Post a more pixel photo of your bike please.
My first bike was a Triumph Tiger.

I have this one now: All my HD's have been black, and this one is really black.

This is me camping at the MB Bike Fest before the Yanks retired to Myrtle Beach and banned Harley week.

Their problem was actually the next week - "Black Biker Week". Those guys are raunchy thieves, and the fat naked "booty" hanging off the back of those foreign bikes would make anyone vomit. Restaurants and motels started closing that week and the NAACP (left wing arm of the Dem party) brought law suits.

The Harley week was just a bunch of old rich fat farts on $20K plus bikes spending millions there, but to avoid law suits, MB took the low road to be PC and banned the money pot and the fat booty pot.

The funny thing is that the HD riders went elsewhere, and Black Bike Week goes on.
\:D/ \:D/ =D> =D> \:D/ \:D/

I hope a million booty babes show up there this year.

O.K., Here goes. Bought this bike as a bobber, got tired of the hose in face effect when it rained so installed some fenders, made a few more mods and designed this paint scheme. Did my helmet to match.
