Re: “Breathing fire

I had a 82 FXRS. It went through about 10 charging systems in the 75,000 miles under it. I and my buddy went up Pikes Peak. My lock and chain bounced around on the dirt road. It punched a mole in my regulator and that was it. I knew DM was in Colorado and learned where he is. I charged up the batt over night and rode out there, after calling him, to buy a regulator. I put it on, in his shop...cost $35 when they were $80 elsewhere. He then gave me a tour of the place and showed me his small museum and new CNC machine. He was machining Delkron cases. He put one side in, lined up the front outside tappet block bolt hole exactly where it's supposed to be and flipped a switch. The machine did all the rest. I had never seen one work before...Freakin amazing.
I mentioned to him that in 82 at Daytona I came across him at the Valousia diner. He was leaving and spit some fire out of the infamous dragon. The heat could hurt somebody and the diesel fuel smell lingers. I mentioned this incident when I was there and he said..."Maybe you were in my way". I like the guy.
Have a wonderful day.
