One of the things I didn't mention in that post was: The first time I met PeeWee he was admiring my boots. He asked me where I had picked them up and I told him. When we said our goodbyes he said he was going to go out and get him some boots. I'd forgotten that until he did something during this visit that reminded me.
It seems the last time, I stopped by he noticed that I was wearing a motocross helmet with goggles rather than my full-face helmet. I've taken to doing this when it is warm enough and dry. I find this set up is cooler and lighter, yet it offers nearly the protection of a full-face helmet. This visit as I was parking the bike he told he was going to go into his house to get something to show me.
|PeeWee seems to like skulls.|
Him bringing out the helmet reminded me about the boots. When I asked about them, he said, "Yeah, I got me some boots," and went back in the house to retrieve them.
|My boots are Frank Thomas and I have mixed feelings about them. I hope he likes his Alpine Stars better.|

Of course, he also told me he was thinking of painting his other bike pink.
"Pink?" I said.
"Just cause it would be something different. Kind of stir things up"
He went on to tell me that he had lots of ideas. Like when he was buying his new helmet and goggles he saw a set of " Full Race Leathers". He wanted them bad, but they were too expensive. He thought it would be really cool to get a pocket bike and dress in full leathers. Actually, he thought it would be even cooler to get a few riders together with pocket rockets in full race leathers and start screaming toward the Arch like Shriners gone wild. Why? Like painting the bike pink, it would be different and outrageous and fun.
Tonight he was out putting the panels back on his now once again red bike. I stopped to get a progress picture.
|The panels still need to cure. In a couple of weeks he'll wet sand it and smooth it out.|
