Plastic Bag

Zip-Lok –

A few loose parts for my new center stand were shipped in this clear bag. Perhaps I can keep some odds and ends that get stashed under the seat dry in it.

A man who knows where his towel is is a fellow to be reckoned with…

Tea Towel – after a brew you need something to dry your washed mug with. Well here it is, classic motorcycles adorn this kitchen necessity. It was a gift to riding buddy Dean from a friends father.

A towel, [The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy] says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapors; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-boggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can’t see it, it can’t see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.” Douglas Adams 1952-2001

Schwartz Katze

EDC Every Day Carry. Here’s my new pocket knife, a strong carbon steel bladed thin profiled locking knife. Made in Solingen Germany. Known as the Mercator Black Cat, a design unchanged for over a century,  it arrived wrapped up in waxed brown paper esconsed in a sturdy cardboard box. Nice sharp tool.
