Greetings M'Lady

More info, well, I'm an old fart. Been riding for 40 years. Had a half dozen bikes before the V-Star, but the 'star is the nicest of the lot.
Aircraft mechanic and pilot by trade, been twisting wrenches for 40 years also. Have had the V-Star for about four years and don't plan to give it up anytime soon.

Hey Corsair, I was in Hamilton a couple of weeks ago for the Airshow, ...

... and saw both the F4U, and the Sabre fly - Beautiful!
I am casually aquainted with Dan Dempsey who flies the Sabre now.
Where do you work, that you get to play with such nice toy's?

It means that my plane is a "tail-dragger" (conventional gear) - I hadn't thought of the other ways it could be construed.

Angry I know the feeling, ...

I worked for Air Canada for 24 years, then they decided maintenance was cheaper in El Salvidor, Brazil, and Indonesia, and boom - I'm unemployed.
