Look's like the tender loving care of many many miles using maybe only wd40 every once in a while

Wonder how the rest of the bike look like, brakes etc....is it a 919 ?

So, here's the bit I managed to get out of TedSki (he had a friend over and was brewing beer, so I'll cut him some slack)

< beefsalad> TedSki: tell the story on that damn chain already :P
>> TedSki<< beefsalad: it was namely just a matter of misjudging how many miles were left
>> TedSki<< beefsalad: and being in alberta on a sunday
< TedSki> and needing to go to sf by tuesday
< beefsalad> TedSki: any idea how many miles were on itn?
>> TedSki<< beefsalad: yea, 19k when those pics were shot

So there you go, 19k

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

I find it crazy that America is so against the Metric system but when it comes time to abbreviate one thousand or more we use a "K". That "K" represents the first letter in the prefix "Kilo", which comes from the Greek word "χίλιοι" ("khilioi"), meaning thousand. 1 km = 1000 meters = 0.62125 Miles. 19,000 US miles = 30,577.54 Kilometers. My math might be off i had a crazy night last night. Sorry for my rant. And yes, that man was out of his fricken mind to ride on that chain! Is his "Home-Brew" made from corn?

what about mils? engineers love the "mils" term(u.s. and foreign Eng's.).
now, mils in any other country is millimeter. in the u.s. it means "thousandths of an inch" like when you buy a plastic drop cloth.

so i ask Gerhardt " what is the coupling alignment spec." he says 4 mil.
i ask "millimeters or thousands"?
he says......"yes"
i walk away saying to myself ...........WTF!!!!!

Thous' is a jargon term while Mils and Microns are defined terms.
A Thou is one thousandth of an inch.
A Mil is another term for a Thou. Actually, Thou is jargon for Mil when you get right down to it.
A Micron is millionth of a metre. 25 Microns = 1 Thou = 1 Mil
In our trade, rotating equipment that is, Mils are instantly understood as being the defined Mil, as are Microns.
Old school types instantly recognize Thous' just like they instantly recognize Tenths.
I have never heard Mils being used as jargon for a mm, noting 1 mm = 3.937 or so Thou (= 0.03937 inches) and therefore 3.937 Mils too. When I say never heard, that includes dealing with my couterparts in France and England.

I here mils used all the time to refer to millimeters. Depends on what shop I'm in though really the bus and fisher shops talk mils and thous meaning thousandths the foreign valve shops use the term mils for millimeters. what gets confusing is they say tenth and hundredth all the time to but they mean .1 or .01 millimeters.

I always got sent to work with them because I didn't under stand the english system very well when I came to fisher. I mean I knew how to measure and machine but I new metric to a T. I was also the only guy in the shop that knew metric at all I also had the ability to translate.

Common sense. So rare it's a god damn super power.
