now that I think about it, it may not have been revealed here, but in the Tuesday dinner thread

anyway, here's my 3 whole pix I took...



EJV with his S-Ten and Dave? on his RC51



the V-Stroms: Steveb126 (on right) and Name Escapes Me



Mark and his ST1300


we had 7 of us total start off from Tarlton. Besides me, there was EJV, Steveb126, Gregsbro and one more from ADVRider whose name escapes me (damn I suck) plus two guys who arent on the board, Mark and (Dave?)

I, of course, intended to take more pics at the Millstone, but didnt and the video I took is nearly worhtless unless you like looking at the side of the road for 3 hours. Somehow, right at the beginning of the ride, I knocked the camera sideways (damn I suck). Maybe I'll post up a little snippet later.

Sounds engrossing, I'm on the edge of my seat.

You gotta do the group shot, man. If there's one thing looking at cool old motorcycle pictures and murals has taught me it's the importance of the group shot. Otherwise it's just bikes at gas stations, woohoo.

I'm starting to pose a la Napoleon, with my hand tucked high up in my jacket...

Sorry I missed it. was feeling a little better this weekend and decided to move some big ass logs and split firewood yesterday and early this morning which was a bad idea. Started the GS up and made it about half way down the drive and found the pinched nerve back with a vengence so just parked it. Really sucks to be missing out on the best riding of the year...

Well I watched local news for the first time in a year plus, and the first story was a road rage shooter in Delaware... On a farkled out 1200gs! Guess he followed a pickup truck till it stopped, then shot the driver in the head?! Eep.

In the one posted above, not only was this this the by-pass hill to the real hill (you don't want to see the real hill, think Erzberg), I was supposed to be going in the direction the camera is pointed, not the direction the rock kicked me. I got stuck twice but made it without falling. I tried the real hill 4 or 5 times one day and never made it without dabbing or stopping.

In the news a few years ago, a man woke up with a severe head ache, later to find out a 22 was lodged in his skull. Seams his wife was pissed and shot him while he slept.

I'm not incarcerated, so it wasn't me.

Just saw it on Channel 10.

The GS is red with gray jesse's and a bunch of Touratech stuff on it, including some soft bags strapped to the back of the Jesse's, black crashbars, black russell daylong with back rest, some little Canadian flag stickers.

At first I thought it was Larry. Thanks to the DVR I backed it up and saw it definitely wasn't.

Anybody we know?

unfortunately that color scheme is rather popular. I hate to throw names out for just that reason. However, the way the news reported the story it doesn't sound like a good case for self defense given he chased the pickup down in order to shoot the driver.

I happened to be there right at 3:30 just as they were closing the US23 N exit. The bike looks disturbingly familiar. The news showed a few seconds of the bike from the side and rear. I had an adrenalin surge as I first saw the bike because from behind, it looks like Ohioroadrats.

You and me both, Shawn!! The only reason I knew it wasn't at first glance was because it didn't have stickers all over the Jesse's and Larry didn't have all the other TT stuff bolted on.

That, and it's got a Zumo on the dash, and I know Larry wouldn't be investing in one right now.

That and Larry only has a .380 he uses to scare bears with the noise of the gunshot!

Actually I heard what happened is the final drive was leaking oil, which was blowing back all over the truck's windshield, prompting the confrontation. Damn BMW final drives.
