    Where Do You Work? What Do You Do?

    Thought it might be interesting to see what all you gearheads and riders do in the real world...
    Yeah, I've been doing this for a while...

    Retired auto mechanic. Started 06 June 1963. So, do a lot of retiring (naps have become my 'happy hour' ) and some wrenching....LOL . This feels more like an introduction, but what I do in the real world.
    1979 CM400T (rider),
    1979 CM400T (resting)
    1980 CM400T (just picked up in pieces)
    1981 CM400T (in surgery receiving transplant)
    1982 CM450 (donor engine for 81)
    1982 CB450 (parts bike)
    1985 VT1100C (rider)

    Past rides: Vincents, Triumph, BSA's, Suzuki's, Twingle, Corgy, others.

    Remember, today is the tomorrow we worried about yesterday.
    My chest fell, but, fortunately, my belt caught it.
    I don't know everything, nor, have I met the one who does.

    Retired fighter pilot. I do a little wrenching, a little riding, a little fishing, a little hunting, a fair amount of golfing. When holed up for the winter I study American history and collect vintage rock & roll. Most recently started melting down old wheel weights, casting bullets with them, and lobbing them downrange with a 70 year old army rifle. And hanging out with the grand kids.

    Excuse me now, I think I need nap.

    Which branch of the service? I'm sitting in the control tower greenhouse at the old Alameda Naval Air Station, which is now the employee lounge (with kegerator and wine fridge) at the company where I work.

    Food and beverage photographer. Started riding dirt and street in the early 70's and took a break 3 years ago. My 360 is for noodling around town.

    Great thread Old Putz, It is interesting to see what others do for a living and find there way to this site and obviously into old Hondas.
    I work for a plumbing and pipefitting company, mainly in the office estimating but get back out in the field occasionally.
    I'm jealous of nap time!!!
