So yesterday it was lovely exterior and I went out on the K100 like I mentioned I used to be going to do. The trip was nice ! I ended up going for a 3 hour trip far and wide. Ended up on the seaside for a brief break then rode some extra. I returned residence round 3PM when the college buses hit the highway. That is additionally when the variety of assholes multiplies by an element of ten. I’ve a window once I trip right here in Lengthy Island . I trip from about 10 AM till 3 PM when most of them are off the roads and dealing . It is my survival technique . Now up within the Adirondacks I can trip so long as I might like in summer time which is without doubt one of the huge sights for me . The one downside up there’s the variety of days within the yr one can truly trip as a result of climate. The season is brief , possibly 5 months and out of that point it rains about 60% of the time . I am rethinking my plans on shifting north for that reason and the truth that winter is simply too brutal. It is an issue I want to unravel however not at present. Nope , at present I am considering I will work on a brand new portray or no less than get able to . Yesterday upon my return from my trip there was a bundle ready on the porch. My new oil paints have arrived ! You see, I left my paints up within the Adirondacks at my camp considering I might be returning in late September however did not. I bought buried beneath all this work I needed to get completed right here at residence on the home so once I went to color after feeling higher from the Covid I could not. I am excited . I purchased these very nice oils , Williamsburg handcrafted oils . I really like this paint. The colours are actually good for the work I do . So, it appears to be like like I will begin portray once more as soon as my spouse takes down the Christmas tree and decorations . They’re in my method and I can not paint down within the basement as a result of my stock venture has the basement all torn aside .
There are 6 shelf models like this . That is the first one . These components are all for 1965 /66 Yamaha YDS3/YM1. Cool bikes , 2 stroke highway bikes . Virtually 60 yr previous twin cylinder machines that I’ve been using and restoring most of my life. I used to be planning on promoting these things as a retirement enterprise however I’ve come to the conclusion I waited too lengthy and I simply haven’t got sufficient time left on this Earth to perform this objective so I will attempt to discover a youthful man who needs to purchase it in bulk . I’ll promote it as three heaps designated by mannequin . Who is aware of , I have to get it sorted first !
This venture is a part of the primary lot I am going to promote.I’ve two of those and all of the components which can be particular to this sub mannequin that I will begin off with.
Then after the venture Large Bear Scrambler stuff goes I am going to deal with promoting this bike , a 1966 Yamaha YM1 . A 305 cc two stroke twin . I’ve two of those and do not want two. The opposite one got here from the identical dealership the place I purchased my 1 st bike method again in 1965 once I was in tenth grade . It even got here with all of the paperwork from there , , invoice of sale and so forth signed by the man who sat me on my first motorbike . It is a keeper ! This may get bought together with the the rest of the YDS3 /YM1inventory. This bike is the primary bike I ever restored .Did that again within the late 80’s /early 90’s.
It appears there are at all times these layers of stuff I’ve to work by way of earlier than I can truly do what I need. It is exhausting and my time is getting quick. Possibly I’ve ten good years in entrance of me or possibly I’ve ten minutes . At 75 that is how I feel . Effectively , we’ll see what at present brings and never fear in regards to the future. I really like the place I reside . This little home has been top-of-the-line issues in my total life. It introduced stability , prosperity , and good neighbors into my life .Who is aware of , possibly when my spouse retires we can keep .The pension and SS could also be sufficient to hold us . If that is the case we are able to simply stick with it and spend just a little extra time up on the camp the place I can trip and work within the woods. That is actually all I want at this level in life in addition to a few previous bikes and automobiles to play with. So now it is off to get into one thing and make this a productive day.
