I wonder if Richard Clark has any factory road racers or parts.

Ha - Nice call Slawscomb!

I remember that Johnny Cash song. I haven't heard it for a while, but I fancy there was a neat twist in tail somewhere in the last verse- I just can't remember what it was.

In answer to Paul's question, I suspect it was probably for the EJR1 (the single cylinder predecessor to the ELR2/3 50 twins). The only pics I've seen of the EJR1 suggest it was an air-cooled motor, but maybe the factory experimented with water-cooling before they designed the 50 twins. P:erhaps Kotaro has more info?

The white gloves remind me of one of the field engineers that we had at the company I used to work for. We went out to install instrumentation, run tests, collect data, solve technical issues and otherwise climb all over large off-highway equipment. Most wore dark blue coveralls, but one guy always showed up in white coveralls.  When he walked in, they always knew he wasn't planning on doing any real work. He'd just tell the local mechanics what he wanted them to do and stood around while they did all the work.

Down here in the Rio Grande Valley, I usually see 4-5 managers standing in the shade while the "employee" is sweat'n away in the ditch!  :o
