    At least I agree with the way they engineered my Cruiser, so we think alike. I love the way it was built to be "rebuilt".

    What I mean is, you don't take a starter in for a replacement. Its built well enough that you just service it (contacts, plunger, whatever).

    Little things, like grooves in the bronze bushing in the spindle so that lubricant can actually migrate to where it needs to go.

    Plug wires that snap in place on the dizzy cap with a seal to keep moisture out, 4 piston front calipers, two little pins and a spring clip.. and WHAM.. new front brake pads.

    Upper and lower locating arms (4 link) on rear axle, rear axle full floating, shocks mounted as low and as outboard as possible, coil springs, front hub goes into a dust shield to protect the hub seal, 7 (count 'em 7) main bearings, little oil squirter's for the bottom of the pistons, etc, etc, etc..........


    YUP! I'm Japanese alright.

    Maybe you're an engineer?

    My dad looked at the underside of a Saab once and was quoted as saying: "It's not a car. It's a fawking brilliant work of art."

    Engineers get all hot under the collar for all kinds of weird reasons.

    No "turning Japanese" for me. I like women and I'm a guy.

    Funny, I had a black friend check me over once and ask "Are you sure you're not black?" because I like chicks with a lot of junk in the trunk.

    Maybe you are Japanese! ;)

    What does "turning Japanese" have to do with liking or not liking women? :confused:

    The reference to, "turning Japanese" in the song refers to someone turning gay.

    I thought it referenced masturbation.
    And that as the guy was about to lose his load, he'd squint his eyes...looking "Japanese"

    Confirmation on that, Mr. President--it's masturbation, not gay. :) It's a reference to the squinting that sometimes occurs. :D
