    Just a little history on the cylinder index . Was started by a local talk radio guy joe soucheray .Cool show on am1500. C.I should be atleast your age. Sorry guys you cant count air tools comp. etc only internal combustion stuff.Love this site I work at a university as a locksmith repair all the grounds stuff and plow if and when it snows. From your insite I talked the boss into ice ban liquid and bagged also u edges on our skid buckets and skid plow. Fun of the day was watching 55 gals of iceban fall off suppliers truck and break open on our driveway. wll keep you informed on ice ban results in a controlled setting. So far no ice on the driveway:D

    Good point Bruce, but there are 2 potential "bites" on the Virago right now so I'll end up with the same total before long! :D

    Kinda nice that the Harley wasn't done in December - when it comes home it'll be like Christmas again. :cool:
