Foot pegs, yes correct word.

You impress me with your use of another language, I can't speak anything other than American English.

Geography of maps, knowing cardinal and intermediate directions, land forms, etc. This is at a basic level as I teach 6th grade in a middle school. (11 and 12 year old children)

They were excited that I was communicating with someone from Finland. One boy is from Finnish ancestors. His father's first name is Pentti, he says it's a common name over there. (?)

Ok. This is litlebit out of topik but i hope its ok. It is comon subject here among bikers, first names and geography. Ha haa. Here Meny firts names appears in decades. Pentti was common in 40 and 50. If y now give your son name Pentti it would be oldmans name and totally out of fashion lolol . But yes it was common. I belive it comes from name Benedictus (blessed). Is there real summer alredy or like late spring? I am sitting outside wearing shorts and T drinkin beer and thinking my next move. Licens plate holder or front fender. Both sudjects are not in top ten in my "most interestin jobs" . meny HD builders are driving whitout fron mudguard but i dont know. It rains here and i hope to make one 7-10 days trip this sommer. My last bike was nude an when i gotta this i was like wow, now i can drive even it rains hail. But it was boring. I like to feel flyes in my mouth and stamp dust from my pants.

On monday or next week say greetings from Finland to class and Penttis grangrangrangran son.

Licens plate holder building. First idea was to put plate hanging from rear mudguard like it is in normal but no. It looks not good on these short fender. So i desdide put it on side. It is littledit too inside and it is not going to fill regulations. 1% lol. I stole iron bar ( 1\2" wide) from my fathers garage and used to bild this holder. I am pretty pleased whit it. So far i have no welding gear so i haftu use other methods to build it together. Next move is primer paint holder and loose pipes and do som polishing and put new gasket to downpipes. And. Sand these fillings. It feels like endles job to fill these small holes and scraz.

Very cleaver way to mount it. I'm not a fan of side mounted plates, but that looks pretty good

Not to sure about the size of your plates, but that always makes a different. When I was in Germany I was amazed at the size of the plate they expected to fit on a motorcycle. Not much you could do with it.

Öööö. I dont like this original mudguard but but i am going to use it anyway. I would like smooth round shape but not this angle ones. I cut it smaller and smaller but it still not fits in my eye. It looks ok but not good. Blaah. Enyway this is how it looks now. I am going to use this narrow iron bar as a holder. I came up nothin else. Whar u think?

I know. Using round shape mudguard cause othe problems. It will not fit in shape of "front suspension"

I dont know, maby this is quite ok?
