How's your Harley doing, Scott?


Funny you should ask.  Ignition went out on my way to work last week, turned into a 500 pound Brick!  Managed to coast into a parking lot and called for a ride.  Went back with a trailer and took it home.  Been in the garage waiting for me to start repairs.  Just another Honey Do right now.  Somehow I think it will make it towards the top of the list quickly.  (LOL)

I hear you.  My Suzuki's in the chop shop now getting fitted for a custom rear fender.  Then comes rear blinkers getting converted to brake lights and the license plate relocation.  Ammo cans will be turned into saddle bags and I'll have a new rear seat made.  Rear fender job alone was estimated at $700-$1000.  ??? 

Harley goes in for inspection this Saturday.

At least I'll have the chopper to get me through this.  Below is a picture of my dad on his bike.  We rode to Georgia on motorcycles when he was 70.

The BMW California Highway Patrol R1100RT-P bike that I'm interested in is in Kenosha.  We will be back in Illinois next month, so if that bike is still available I may have to pick it up.  Our house in Winthrop Harbor has a garage to keep it in.  I may move to the Illinois house while we renovate it and try to coach football up there.  That would put me up there 3 weeks before an August 1 start date.

Deb suggested I move to our house in Belhaven and coach football down there, but there's only one high school in that remote vicinity.  They (almost) always lose and the header isn't going anywhere.

We heard that the other high school we spoke to (on Monday) was in need of coaches.  Their JV was winless last year and their Varsity has never had a winning season in their history.  We gave them their worst defeat last season (44-0) and the most they scored in any game was 12 points.   I followed up with their header and he replied, "I think that you will be an asset wherever it is you choose to be," so it doesn't sound like he's interested in us being there.

My AC is still coaching the Double Wing with his youth team and has asked me to come aboard if we don't find anything.  There's an option, but I dunno.

Let me know when you are up that way!  We can do dinner.  And if you do come up and are looking to coach, I can help get you in touch with coaches in Kenosha.  And then you can stop at Michael's favorite spot, Mars Cheese Castle.  When he drives by that, he know he has to slow down, as the Staties will be out looking for him.

Valedictorian is stupid anyways.  It can be manipulated, and is too subjective to be as meaningful as people make it out to be.

He did not.  But his mom and dad worked at the school.  They were heavily involved in the FCA.  I know their son.  As bright and hardworking as they come.  I wish he had played for me.  He's the type of young man any coach would be proud of.  He deserved that billboard.

How did the second practice go?

They participated in a 7-on-7 at their school against 2 other schools.  Their varsity header coaches every kid on the field like his hair's on fire.  High energy and always teaching.  They are well-coached.  Then I went over and watched their JV header.  He's a stand-still, non-coaching, whistle-blower.  No teaching; just blowing the whistle.  I call guys like this, "place holders."  He's holding the place of a coach until they can find someone else.
