it's gettin' wide in here

I must've rode a few miles over the weekend because I gassed this wagon's 3.5 gallon tanks up three times . It wasn't void of a couple random episodes of old bike blues. Saturday night when I got where I was going I notice one of the bag lids had blown off. Went back home the same way I came and found the lid about 3 blocks from my house in the middle of the street. Today I was going down south and the bike started sounding rough and louder than usual .. look down and the middle pipe that runs to the left muffler had come out of the connection.. damn.. pulled over on the side of the freeway and realized the left muffler mount bar was broken off .. and the muffler had gone off with it. Where I didn't know , they were long gone now.. oops. Kept riding down the freeway after I bungeed the middle muffler connection to the back of the bike. People must have thought I was a real nut job because I was laughing out loud thinking of what a big pile of shit I was riding. I Rode to my friend Bills and he hooked me up with another old muffler and mount. Thanks Bill you've kept the Garbage Wagon going to ruin another day! Also scored the bag guards from Bill .. which is key to mount all the rear running lights to. The shit pile is starting to get bigger and bigger....

maybe you should hang a couple of old car tyres off the side & go for the full tug boat look? You'd need to start smoking a Popeye pipe too.

You need a loudspeaker on that thing so you can blare "The Ride Of The Valkyries" as you ride along. Either that or the theme from 2001.

I need one of those 1960's 45 record players that you could put in cars for that..

You might as well put the 5 gal. tanks back on at this point. At least you will get further.

I got to draw the line somewhere.. those 5 gallon tanks are just too big..
