+1 on Hansen's Hold Up. One of my favorite areas to ride. Was there about a month ago.

WTH is going on this weekend?

It's a great riding area, and a very nice view from the deck, fo sho.

Not much happening this weekend. Might do the 24K service on the tiger. It's a little early for it, but no big deal.

Is that a planned ride of some sort? Or just heading to Grand Marais for the fun of it? Nice area up there.

Which Grand Maris? There are three of them out there MN, MI and Manitoba

I've thought about a trip going to all three, a Grand Maris trifecta.

I might be up there. Hope there's no event going on that I'll need to avoid.

Local BMW club rides up there every year, must be this weekend.

Shouldn't be hard to avoid, just steer clear of the Starbucks along the way.

Speaking of GM, is it too early to think about pancakes?

The Twin Cities Marathon is Oct. 7. Don't pick that day.

I fell on my ass rock climbing at Taylors Falls today. The seat is almost unbearable right now. Anyone got some sympathy for me?

If you want sympathy look it the dictionary between shit and syphilis.

I'm guessing Oct. 6. If so, keep the 13th open also.

Steady fellas, we're not into September yet. Plenty of riding to do yet. Pancakes at Grand Marais is the harbinger of chilliness and wintry things.

Just rebuilt the Bonneville front brake in readiness for a ride this weekend. Tomorrow - new front tyre on it, and then it's good for some hell raisin'!

Or at least a pootle about between cafes.

Hey Gravy, sorry to hear about your arseage.

Thanks Mr. Prop sir. You've always been a much nicer chap than that other fella. No wonder his SO tried to break his nose.
