Componding interest

Hey Steph,

I have learned (mastered?) a number of different "positions" that seem to produce exciting results. The position of the head(s) seem to create a most beneficial and enjoyable result for both involved parties. As for the lubricant question ... the various cremes must be used sparingly to keep the amount of friction high. The higher the friction, the better the rub. As to the speed of the attack, I have found that by appling enough pressure, things will slow down considerably. Sometimes I use my leg against it it increase the desired results.

Ewe, Great idea but no hablo espainyol. Maybe they need a midwest division Or a friction writer?

As far as how the polishing jobs are holding up, thats more of an issue of aftercare. I am a firm believer that once you polish .. you can expect to need annual touch ups. I spoke with Chi town a couple of months ago and offered a touch up polish per gratis ... He and his wife recently had a new baby and I think he has more pressing things on his mind. Mr B. you lurking out there? Eric been by his house lately? Ron care to chime in about about what can be done with a cyclo?

I saw Ron's pictures after you visited. They were pretty impressive. What do you think you will use for the annual touchup? Whatever happened to your Caravel? Did it move far away or have you seen it since you sold it?

Touch up


The answer for the annual touch up is ...... What ever it takes!

After a year of snow load, acid rain, tree sap, gravel, dirt, dust, moon rocks, bugs of all shapes sizes and stickiness hitting our babies at 60+ MPH, and lord knows what else ... I would go as low as G6 or F7 if needed ... then work my way back up to S.

As for my Caravel ... it is in very good hands and living in the Colorado Rockies
and is a quaint accent piece to a beautiful bed and breakfast. Haven't seen her. (except in my dreams and a few photo reminders)
