Jacob,
Great pics. How strict are requirements as far as eyesight? Say if someone is very nearsighted what must corrected vision be to at least fly small plane? And what is approximate cost for flying lessons? Sorry for all the questions.

Oh, i would also like to know what that engine is in Mad's bike.

the lump is out of an old Kawazaki Z1000 i believe - that was a bike i worked on a few months back - we dont get massive numbers of choppers here so i had a bit of fun working on that one ;)

Hey Mad, that is great and very nice looking bike! If I am not mistaken, the KZ1000 was introduced in 1976? I was fortunate enough to have purchased a brand new 1975 Z1900 as my very first bike when I was 18 yrs old. Wow, what memories. My parents hated motorcycles and it is a miracle that I survived those years when the thoughts of being injured or killed were far outweighed by the thrill of power and speed! B)

Yes, and I also remember that the swingarms were notoriously weak on those old muscle bikes! I had the mistaken idea that I could take the curves just as fast as the Nortons and Triumphs! Boy was I wrong! I refer back to my earlier statement of it's a wonder I survived! :ohmy:

Pete's Dragon is not girly or a romance comedy, or a love story, it's a 1977 movie about awesomeness

i know a guy that was a torch bearer - its amazing how lightweight the torch is - i felt humbled to hold it :) my girlfriends mum works in the olympic security team at heathrow and she had to hold the medals as the teams went through the scanner - im mildly jealous ;)

Great pictures, Mad! I put the one with you on the motorcycle on the front post. Awesome bike!

Oh, BTW, nice flying on those games earlier. I haven't seen you in the skies lately, and those games were real fun! :)
