Picture Attachment problem (09 Jul 2022)

Due to the extraordinary growth of the membership and resources, we are once again bumping up against hosting limits. I am working on a fix. In the meantime, the forum should function, but you won’t be able to attach images. Working as fast s we can to fix. Thanks for your patience. - Makotosun

BubbaSendsIt is a fictional character loosely based on the Larry Enticer archetype.

I didn't know you guys yet when I signed up, and didn't realize people were using real names. So too late to change now, I am forever to be known as Bubba.

If anyone is not familiar with Larry Enticer, he is a Canadian dare devil and folk hero:
1972 Yamaha DT2 250
2022 Yamaha XT 250
1965 Ducati Monza 250 (legacy project not running yet)
1966 Ducati Monza 250 (legacy project not running yet)
250 singles are my jam!

Correct. No “rules”. But family friendly is a policy. If you have a desire to change your user name (though you may not want to if you’ve been here awhile and are known by the current one), I have to do it in the back end, but am happy to oblige.

Makoto is the name of a Japanese Typographical character I liked some 30 years ago. When I first got involved in the internet (way before the ease of use of windows came along), I needed a user name and adopted Makoto. In the early 90’s I started doing some amateur graphic design and needed a fictional firm name. Makoto Sun Design came into being. it has been the base of several other fictional firm names - Makoto Sun Design and Engineering, Makoto Sun Media, and simply Makotosun.

The name was also part of the inspiration for my Suntank DT1 project as well as the website logo.

Larry Enticer truly is an archetype of about one in every five people I remember from my snowmobiling daze in the early 80s when we rode from bar=======to======bar=====to=====bar in northern Michigan. Glad that was a short stint for me as I don't know how long one can live that recklessly.

My first real motorcycle in 1971 was a '71 Yamaha DT1E 250 Enduro. Made me the king of the neighborhood at the time. I'm lucky to have 2 of them today. One is original, unrestored.

The hours spent riding my Enduros is not deducted from my life span.

zapatto is part of my former address when i was in Corsica : "route de poggio di nazza, valcaccia zapatto, 20223 Prunelli di fium'orbo". It was hell each time I had to spell that...... Corsica is an island south of France, west of Italy, that's why it does not sound french.
