Hi CB.... Yes the safe is progressing, although I have been delayed by other things and also by the fact that my 6mm steel plate was not flat as supplied. This is complicated construction, but I have it sorted now. I have the locking bold mechanism all done and the 6 lever lock installed so that's all OK.

Re. the bike; yes, I guess it's unusual for someone of my years to ride a "crotch rocket", but I do enjoy it. I will ride until I can't get my leg over the bike any more! Glad you enjoy your Ducati, they are good bikes.
Ride safe brother... :)

Kathryn, That was my progression, I finally sold my R100/7 5 years ago, when I could no longer swing a leg over it.
That was the first time since 1957 I did not have a M/C.
Still look, but that is as far as it goes, the sciatica is even making walking a hard time.
I wish you well, I know about you women, I have been beaten down by the "Fairer Sex"
since the 4th grade when the little, knobby kneed, 4 eyed girl started beating up on me at the spelling bees.
The last time I qualified for my CHL, I managed a 245, though it was pretty decent, sure enough, the only female in the class shot a 249!
The beatings never stop!

Aww Drinks, that's sad about the sciatica. I have had that and I know how painful it can be. Happily it seems to be more or less in remission right now; I have learned how not to aggravate it!

As a one-time registered instructor, I have taught many people to shoot, and I have to say that the girls were always easier to teach (better attitude!) and often turned out to be very good shots. Apparently we do have a very slight natural edge for eye-hand coordination, and that is a help with shooting.
You don't seem TOO unhappy about your little knobby-kneed four-eyed rival... lol...
Hope you sciatica doesn't get any worse...

xo

"Thunkin" mighty seriously about selling our 50 Chevy panel wagon and getting a nice trike. That way "mama" and I could "tool" about a bit and still get bugs in our teeth---that is the way you can recognize a happy biker--by the number of bugs in his teeth--lol.

Those Spyders are cool... but modern helmets cover the face, so bugs on the teeth are a thing of the past... :)

Not in this state, helmets are optional, I see buggy faces all the time. (But not for me or my pillion. No helmet, no ride.)

Ah right... helmets are compulsory in NZ, although I wore one even before they were made mandatory. Dust and bugs in the eyes are not conducive to good control... :wink:

Hummingbirds down the throat neither!

I was one foot from hitting a flying (more like gliding) turkey at 60mph once on a Gpz550!
Not sure I coulda kept the shiny side up, but glad not to find out.

I did, somehow, manage to remain in an upright, seated position after colliding with a whitetail deer a couple years ago though (same Kawasaki). 
Mom was upset when she found out!

Nice that you spell Kathryn properly!  :thumbs:

A rhinoceros beetle in the throat at 60 mph will get your attention, so will a tarantula killer down the collar , picture doing the rumba and a samba while rocking and rolling at 60 mph.
The beatle is as large as a big thumb and the tarantula killer is a wasp about 2-2 1/2" inches long.

LOL... yeah... back in the 60s I hit a seagull on the motorway. I was doing about 70 at the time and it damned near took me off the back of the bike. It hit me in the chest rather thane the head, so I managed to hang on to the bars and somehow stayed upright. Bit of a fluke I think.... close one!

I have been an NRA instructor for 30 some years and gave found that women are much easier to teach because they listen and ask questions.

Most 18-25 yo men are "experts" on trucks, guns and women! Being experts they have no need to be taught. Ya gotta love 'em. The great thing is that after age 25 most of the younger experts do follow Mark Twain's dictum and suddenly "get smarter."

Be Well,

Doc :wink:

CB99F----You have a little way to go, rode a CBR600 F3 in American Samoa for the six years I was there and then I was 69 years old then, and that was 6 years ago, I am now retired after 4 years in Ebeye in the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands, (no bike there too much blown sand on the road), and am back in Oregon I did buy a CBR F4 and rode it for a year and gave it to my stepson for his birthday and purchased a brand new Ducati 848EVO, so now at 75, you need to catch up!
Kathryn, I ran away from home when I was 16 left my folks in California, did the South Pacific Islands and ended up in Australia on my 17th birthday, stayed there for 2 1/2 years!! Similar travel stories!! I am very impressed with your resume!!
