    A habu (pronounced "hah-BOO") is a venomous snake found in southeast Asia (Japan, Phillipines, Taiwan, southeast China) for some reason the name was applied to the SR-71 Blackbird in Okinawa.

    Thanks buddy. Ya know, he really loved this country and life. He was simple. When I was younger I would be embarrassed that he would come out to all my friends and show a motorcycle license that had long expired. Seemed I had no patience. Now at 58, I wish I could only rewind the clock. He was a true American Hero, Father, and man. I will say this to all who’s Fathers are still here, cherish every day. He would love to see the Hot rods I have had, and the children I have raised.
    Afterv WW2many men had issues in life. My dad like many chose to ride and joined a small outfit. Like many of their Veterans and Leathernecks they formed a bond. He was a true Badasss. I just wish I knew it when I thought I knew everything...

    A true prize well deserved after a Shitstorm. Bought this brand new...

    It's easy when no one tells you it can't be done.

    My Dad was an Army Air Force WWII vet but never said much about it. We lost him to cancer in 1988 and I think of him every day and wish I had asked him more about his service time. When I went in the Army in 71 he told me not to let the son-of-a- bitches get the bluff on me. Good advise I found out pretty fast!
