Re: Another pic from Chain

Here's a shot of the scooter in front of the city's new downtown convention center and arena, the QWest Center Omaha as it's called. (Actually, you can't see the arena in this pic...it's out of camera range to the right of the photo.) Anyway, it's a top notch facility, but it's in my assigned area and is a logistical nightmare in terms of staffing, traffic direction, EMS response in the case of medical emergencies, and the ever present spectre of terrorism, post 9-11. Fleetwood Mac is playing here tonight and the crowd looks like it's going to be pretty large.



Here's a rendering showing what the whole joint looks like:

Re: Another pic from Chain

For some reason the roofline immediately reminded me of Kansai. Lots of glass, maybe...

It occurred to me that you haven't yet changed out the blinkers. Is that a in your department, or a personal preference?

Kansai? Sorry, dense I guess.

Funny you'd mention the blinker issue. I held out for a long time, but finally caved. I JUST installed LP Short Stalk IIs out back (clear lenses to match the clear tail light) and am waiting on a set of Flush Mount IV Mediums to come in from Newportcycleparts.com

Ah.

Pretty darned cool airport, that one.

My girlfriend flew into that airport in April when she went home to see her remaining family in Japan. I should have known the name of it. Oh well...

Re: Another pic from Chain

Nice pic Chain. *I wish I could make some joke about r/b being faster/better etc. but in this setting/background, the b/s seems a bit more photogenic...in a slow kinda way...

p.s. I thought you went back to the stock pipe?




For '05 I promised myself I would practice tolerance...so if people would quit being so STUPID I'll be more tolerant.

Been there and back a dozen times since we last talked.

Seriously, I think you were throwing back vodka/rocks when the thread came up.

No offense buddy, but I'm not digging the pipe. Yosh doesn't seem to fit on a Honda.

Just my oppinion. Take it for what it's worth. Nothing.

That Grey Goose just puts my brain to sleep and takes over all control...a welcome relief sometimes...
