Not Hooters ! Twin Peaks

Dubbed a 'breastaurant' by its CEO Randy DeWitt, Twin Peaks is one of the fastest growing restaurant chains in the US.

With about 70 locations in the US, the Dallas-based restaurant chain is known for its waitresses who wear tight plaid shirts and mini-shorts. Check em out

Waco or any news site or station.

Waco - Clubs involved

As the dust clears it appears the clubs involved were Scimitars Texas, Cossacks Texas and  Bandidos.
Of course the police are blaming everyone except themselves for not halting it sooner.  Will be interesting to see how many of the dead and injured was gang on gang and how many from police.
Police even tried to say lack of co-operation by the restaurant management was responsible .

school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT

~ Bill Gates ~
This should be posted in every school or kid's bedroom.
Love him or hate him , he sure hits the nail on the head with this!
Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about
eleven things they did not and will not learn in school.
He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings
created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and
how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.
Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it!
Rule 2: The world doesn't care about your self-esteem.
The world will expect you to accomplish something
BEFORE you feel good about yourself.
Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school.
You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.
Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.
Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity.
Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping:
They called it opportunity.
Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault,
so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.
Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring
as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills,
cleaning your clothes and listening to you
talk about how cool you thought you were:
So before you save the rain forest
from the parasites of your parent's generation,
try delousing the closet in your own room.
Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers,
but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades
and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer.
*This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.
Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters.
You don't get summers off and very few employers
are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF.
(Do that on your own time.)
Rule 10: Television is NOT real life.
In real life, people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
Rule 11: Be nice to nerds.
Chances are you'll end up working for one.
If you can read this...thank a Teacher.
If you can read this in English...thank a Soldier!
And for life and everything else you have...thank God!
Now....think about this and smile if you agree and please pass this on....
If you don't agree, go stick your head in the SAND and take a DEEP BREATH!

Some subjects to avoid .....

Religion, Politics and ....................Oil ?
It is actually quite an illuminating subject and one that as petrol heads and bikers it does us well to contemplate.
Why do we need  Oil in our engines ? 

Incidently, I called up a Harley dealer to get a price on a replacement oil filter for my bike . They quoted £12.46 inc Vat. But on t'internet , at ebay I got one for £7.99 inc UK shipping ....I am fucked if I am paying  an extra  £4.46 just to be able to ride 2 miles to get it immediately.  No way Pedro !
it would have been even cheaper if i had not insisted on having the chrome instead of black lol .

 2 webpages to check out on Basics of Oil - Here  and  Motorcycle Oil Tips & Tricks  Here with plenty of interesting links off from them too.

Oily Rag

After a setback in my private life I turned to the one I love and decided to pamper it. Yep time to do the Oil change I keep promising. So dodging the  spatterings of rain which seem obligatory at weekends in london I rode the bike for a few miles ( get the bread from the store) and returned home to drain the warm oil. Now as much as it would be nice to make out this is a rocket science engineering task and worthy of the charge a dealer will make aint ! Especially on the late 90's sportsters this is a simple task as all it requires is to undo 1 tube clamp and pull the tube away from the stopper and let it drain into your oil tray. Simples. ( do not foregt to remove the dipstick so there is no possible pressure making the oil flow slower.  That done just replaced the oil pipe to the stopper , tightened the tube clamp and filled the oil tank to the required quantity.
Now there are some who swear you should always change the oil filter when you change the oil( including those selling the oil filters ! )  but there is another school of thought that believe you can change the oil filter every 2nd oil change . Circumstance and my tight wallet dictated I  am of the latter. The oil filter will get replaced next oil change .
