    Sounds great Andy. Access to the shop is a big plus. You have seen mine. I have the machine tools;
    but it would be a challenge to have an assembled bike in here; and get work done too.
    I need space.....and a lift...or 2.

    Congratulations! Glad to hear things are going well for you guys.

      Thanks guys,

      Yesterday went well. There is definitely some adjustment to be had, and some hurt feelings that have to be repaired and a LOT to be done and changed. But so far so good.

      It is nice planing my own days again. I haven't had that in a while and forgot how much more i enjoy doing the same work when i get to chose when and how.. Small thing, but big difference mentally i guess.
      Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

        Being able to make the plans and feel a little more in control of the time line is important for sure.

          The joy's of being in control where counteracted today by one of the people im in control of bringing his girl and kid in for the day. As soon as i left to go to the sanitation department to get our septic plans he started using her as his assistant then having her clean up the shop. At the end of the day he asked me if he could fill his truck off the farms fuel tank in exchange for her having done work...

          Tomorrow we start a new policy.. No one under 18 in the shop, non employees over 18 are allowed to come in the shop one half day a week.
          They can hang but not work. No non employees allows in ANY farm equipment (with the size of our farm that rule will stop anyone from going to do outside work as well).

          Funny, i never had anyone try to bring there girl and kid on a service call doing I.T. why would it be ok on a farm???

              Because farm folk probably never think about professional courtesy, much like Hillbillies and rednecks..

                Actually, grew up with some real farmers; saw more professional courtesy than a lot of the putzes I worked with in the corporate world.
                '89 Hawk a.k.a. The RallyHawk (my son's now!) | '89 Hawk a.k.a. The Deuce | Spare Parts/Dented Learner Bike | '13 Tacoma | '69 Falcon (currently getting reassembled! )

                I've spent most of my money on women, beer, cars and motorcycles. The rest of it I just wasted.

                  Unfortunately this wasn't what it seemed to be .... it certainly started out as the right idea.

                  Money tends to make folks fickle.

                      I have noticed that too.. But then there is always one (and im sure there have been many times in my career when i was that guy..)...


                      True story, i swear to god, I am not saying when this happened or with whom... , but it happened on a farm..One day a guy called in sick with a broken elbow. The next day... He is working and using his elbow..... Said it got better quick, hes always been a quick healer.

                      Really.


                      Yesterday was a sweet day though...

                          Yup, I grew up on a dairy farm, long days, hard work but it sure was worth it.
