  1. I am going to make this one post then I will have to ignore this thread or I will get a kind of mad few have seen in me. My grandfather was a gunner on a troop ship at Normandy and saw many going and coming both vertical and horizontal, he never spoke about what happened there rill his last few years as Im sure it made an indelible impression on him. I saw the same in Iraq and after I came home from members of all branches of the military, all the members of our armed forces deserve our gratitude no matter where or when they served and all great battle fields where men died to protect and def

  3. On Monday, June 10 me and my son will fly out to USA. It's working out not so easy though because we'll do it from Amsterdam There is a plan to visit my friends in Germany and Holland by the way, so there are two different things in one can. The first half of the trip must be covered by car At now we made 1000 miles from Moscow(home) and we made crossed right half Poland. Not many pictures are in the camera now, but the most attractive once are on your display. The sky scenery and the steam locomotive by the gas station were in Belarussia. The road shots and buildings were from Poland.

  4. D-Day – Normandy by Michael DiRienzo, Brooklyn, NY, Battery A On the morn of June 6th, the year 1944, Destination Normandy, D-Day of the war. The waters were still, the clouds were high, All was quiet, not a bomber in the sky. We jumped off our LST into waters knee deep, Worn out and tired, we had no sleep. Then all of a sudden, before we knew, All Hell broke loose with the morning dew. Shells and bombs all around, the enemy fixed and ready, All over, men moved forward, a little scared, but steady. The battle was rugged and one bloody mess, All the heroes that were made, I know you will never

  6. Do not be alarmed! I switched the default theme to Stainless! We were using the standard IPB blue theme and I just think we need something a little more exciting! If you are partial to the old blue theme, it is still available in the theme changer at the bottom of every page! Just choose BMT Blue and it will remember your choice! Let me know what you think!

  8. Started to buff out the beast. Looks like I will be able to get some shine back in her. I got the new Kysor valve. Just need to get a new 90 degree air fitting and install it. One thing I forgot is I need to replace the belts. They are all dry rotted and I don't trust them for the 2+ hour drive up then back again. Hope I can get those done within the week. But I did install my new light bulbs! I know not technical but heck one more thing done. You can see the line where I buffed the hood to show the comparison. Look at the upper door area compared to the door that was buffed out.

  9. Blackdog you are 100% correct , Paul the 2 1983 Dms did not have the high bodies that the 1972's did. The 83's had longer lower bodies maybe Bristols. I can find out where they went after Horan sold them. That yard was all Mack at one time trailers and 10 wheelers. Now I think there might be 6 Superliner 10 wheelers and 1 granite and all the trailers are KW and Petes. Not sure where your DM came from but the paint colors look like Russo wrecking from over by Kennedy Airport . Pretty sure they had DMs . I think the short wheel base with the high dump body made Rizzos trucks look so big. He had

  13. The past 4 days I have been on two wheels. With the crazy weather, it seemed like I was never going to get the motorcycle out of the shed and ride. Thursday I finally got the chance and was riding for the rest of the week back and forth to work. Sunday the wife and I went to breakfast then rode down by the beach. She hasn't seen the destruction yet from the hurricane so I wanted to show her all the houses sideways, missing, etc. We went all the way down the island to Island Beach State Park, turned around and cruised by the boardwalk in Seaside (for those of you who done know, that's where

  14. Last Friday I ended my 13 year career in auto racing. It was a hard choice but lack of time home in the summer and poor wages vs time invested made it clear it was time to move on if an agreement could not be meet. After a few weeks back and fourth an no head way made I gave notice. Kinda sad how it all went down but it is what it is.. I am now working full time with the Tanzillo family. They do some excavating and lots of low boy work. My main job is driving truck #35. 400 with an 8LL on 44k air ride. She does pretty good for a small truck. Easy to get around town in and no big blind spots.

  20. Whew....pulled up this site and thought I'd gone colorblind from staring at this dang computer so much over the past couple days while my truck's been in the shop! Sure am glad to know it ain't my eyes playin' tricks on me.... I did kinda like the blue, too...the black/gray looks good too, kinda reminiscent watching a black & white TV....but with a splash of color thrown in for spice. What was that movie where they did that? Oh well...too early to be thinking too hard about it...

  21. Barry, WOW! I was surprised to see the "new look". So far I like it but will give it some time and perhaps compare to the blue theme. Although I am partial to blue. Is the "LIKE" restored to show who "liked" a post?

  35. Hard Krom pipes? Had a set very similar on my 1100 Shadow, before I sold up to my '07 Softail Custom. I like my Hondas, but hated the "sound". Even with pipes, they sound horrible. Got to love that HD rumble. I still have stock pipes, but gutted mufflers. Nice deep roar, not crackly noise like my Honda was. Got mine used off craigslist, so didn't get raped. Can't get me off it, that is until my back gets to hurting too much LOL! Saturday was spent in the garage, had a buddy's '87 Mustang over for some welding. Race car stuff. Went out to dinner Sat. night. Sunday I waited to see t

  37. Cool bike. Honda VTX, right? 1800? I have a Kawasaki Mean Streak which is similar. They are an awful lot of fun, plenty of power, and don't come with the HD price tag. (not that I am an HD hater) This weekend? We had a community yard sale so I sold off a bunch of junk. Then went to the Indianapolis Zoo with the family on Sunday. Drew

  38. There is a simple fix in this country... # 1 stop sending money to other countries # 2 stop givin money to non Americans # 3 start givin the TAX money that the older people paid into the system, back to the US people!! What in the HELL is so hard about that??? I'm sorry but we don't need these bleedin heart left people with big money invading the US tax payin coffers to take care of non US tax payin people!!! My family went through the same stuff as Paul's did, my Mom had Altzheimers and my Dad took care of here in his house for 11 years! yes 11 years! Why? because he was afraid of loosin ever
