E-Z Motorcycle Assembly

Step One: Buy all the parts.
Step Two: Place all the parts in this guy's garage.
Step Three: Go drink a beer.
Step Four: Go to garage, turn key and go for a ride!

I'm particularly amazed that this video reportedly only took 30 hours to shoot. I'd need at least 30 hours just to assemble the Gixxer; forget about the stop-action photo tricks!

Happy Veterans Day!

Off-topic, but a giant "Thank You!" to all U.S. vets and current service members from a former member of Unc' Sam's own Air Force.  For anyone who cares: 431X1 ("Crew Chief" to you civilian types): F-111F, 48 TFW, 48 AGS, 493rd and 494th AMUs, RAF Lakenheath, UK 1982 - 1985; and F-111D & F, 57 FWW, 431 TES, McClellan AFB, Sacramento, CA 1985 - 1989.  After separating, I did a year as a weekend warrior on C-130H with the 166th AW, Delaware ANG, 1990.

An F-111F from one of my old squadrons (494th Black Panthers) dropping hi-drags in the Nevada desert.  With a top speed exceeding Mach 2, it was just a little faster than a Suzuki Hayabusa -- almost as ugly, too.
