    Can I crash? Al, we are overdue for a lunch.
    What a thread. Mucho info. Al's retirement. Mitch moving to Nashville. Congratulations! Hope you're having fun in Nastyville.

    I'll buy you a laptop if you continue to handle Pearl Customer Service post-retirement!

    I'll chip in on the laptop! Al, you are the best! I have an inquiry into Pearl from a dealer about fully finished 22" bass hoops in Absinthe Sparkle.

    JY, some years ago I did the same thing on my Super Glide, started it and immediately did a u-turn on stones to leave a parking lot. Halfway around the carb snorted and no more forward motion and I'm leaning way over. I was at least glad I pulled my leg out before it hit the ground. I have a motorcycle ride to Nashville on my bucket list.

    I’m the veteran of many a low speed dump, both on the police bike and my Street Glide. All were my or the bikes’ fault.

    I... I think that means something different over there...

    It'll be sad to see you go, you really are the face of Pearl here on the PDF these days. And you make 'em look great (as evidenced earlier in this thread).

    Seems like an exclusive PDF-member perk: romantic lunches with Al. Where do I sign up?

    I don't know about romantic - but lunch will be free.
