Hallo mein Freund,

Ich möchte Ihnen für die wunderbaren Bilder danken, die Sie von Deutschland veröffentlichen. Als ich ein kleiner Junge war, zog meine Familie aus den Vereinigten Staaten nach Deutschland. Wir lebten ein Jahr lang in Mannheim, bevor wir für drei Jahre nach Zweibrucken zogen. Ich vermisse es so sehr. 2014 kehrte ich mit meiner Frau in den Urlaub zurück. Ich fühlte mich wie zu Hause. Deutschland wird immer in meinem Herzen sein. Ich danke Ihnen nochmals. Ich wünsche Ihnen alles Gute und eine sichere Fahrt.

I had mine on the jack recently. Had fork seals to replace. removed the BPF's, sent to RaceTech for service. I installed the old XR forks in the meantime so I could still ride.
Cheers!

OK this one is for the car guys/gals what model car WAS this ? There's some pretty subtle hints if you know your supercars.

While that wasn't supposed to be a "see who can google first" Yes you are correct Tom. I wasn't actually expecting a direct link along with pictures.....good job. And yes it was very sad to see it go up in flames like that. It took the owner over a year to get it replaced ,but being the guy he is and having a great sense of humour, when it did get replaced it had a licence plate WHT-FIRE So cool !

When you get my age, it's smart to take advantage of those google image searches. I knew it was a Ferrari, because of the wheels, but which model, I had no idea. Hope the owner had replacement cost insurance...

Oh, and I find google searches to be incorrect almost as much as they are correct... So it was still kind of a guess... tp

Good answer Tom. Can't argue with that. I was wondering if someone might pick up on what was the only piece that held it's original shape on the front.....the bumper/ air defuser . Ya they pretty much shovelled that car into the deck,and there was loads of those carbon sheets scattered in the ditches all the way to the tow yard.

Nice Geno! Same general area you're in now?
We are pulling up all of the tent stakes. I am a native a southern Californian, avid surfer, diver, waterman, yada yada. I never dreamed of leaving sunny SoCal, but we will be exploring new adventures in Idaho.

Sweet! is that a 4 car garage I see.
You are seeing the foundation and stem walls for a two car garage, a 45-foot enclosed motorhome bay and a 32-foot, call it a boat garage. 1800 sq.ft of garage.

Nice, your garage is more than twice the size of my house :clap:
On the plus side, if the "BIG ONE" ever hits, you will be living on the beach again.:whistling:
