The wheelie bar for my Stingray would have been awesome! As a youth I spent more hours working on perfecting my wheelie on my Pea Picker (later JMC race bike) than I did my education K-8. Not exaggerating.... Guess that's why I will work in a wrecking yard the rest of my life.

Yup, that guy, the hooligan.

How do you know someone is a pilot? Easy! They'll tell you!

Somewhere out there is a tree, tirelessly producing oxygen so you can breathe. I think you owe it an apology.
