Hope yous guys who rode to Bluegrass yesterday for the Buckwheat cakes missed all this.
I had to pass on the buckwheats yesterday and made it home early (~10:30). As much as I would have liked to hit Blue Grass, my sinus' were driving me nuts and there was no way I was going to enjoy that feast with my nose running like a leaky faucet and semi-sinus headache. I'll probably fix a batch tonight; I have the technology.

I couldn't find anything on it either. I do know what I saw. Fire, rescue and police surrounding a group of sport bikes. A blue sport bike in the woods beside a tarp covering something. The ambulance looked empty and no one was rushing around or working on anything or anyone. It's never good to see a bike off into the woods with that many EMS personnel around doing nothing. My fingers are crossed.

Dang! I missed out on some fun riding this past weekend! I gladly agreed to stay home and feed/bathe/entertain the kids while the good wife took off for a relaxing weekend of quiet, kidless, gourmet meals, naps, spa, wineries and fun at Wintergreen with her sister and cousin.

I'm in for riding ALL DAY Sunday and willing to take my, and two other, small dual sports up to the mountians in my truck...Saturday is possible (could head up Friday after work) ride until 2-3 ish and head back. I need to be back by 5:00 pm for date night.

LOL! No way! I love spending time with and playing with the kids. I know that in a few years they will not want to be with me much except for when asking for money or getting a free dinner. I am "investing" into family stuff like camping trips, volunteering with Cub/Girl scouts, Disney trips and other fun stuff with them in hopes to tighten my bonds with them and keep them around a bit more from age 13 to 25...Who knows, maybe I'm wrong and I am fooling myself.
Besides, after spending my 2012 allowance to go to RawHyde/Mojave, BMW, Motoport, MANY overnight bike trips, off-shore fishing trips, a "new" to me DRZ, thousands in farkles, etc...I had no ammo to argue. She works her ass off working full time, raising kids, cleaning house, putting up with me, running a girl scout troop, managing all incoming mail/bills/investments, etc...she deserves it.

I read it differently. Take out the stuff in the middle and you see that he has made an agreement with the missus, hence he cannot be late.

Eddy, I'd avoid trying for Saturday. You want to be alive for date night, not tired and sore. I could be in for Sunday. Depending on what/where we want to ride, I'll pick a bike.

@Brenda, I know you were discussing a ride for Saturday that possibly involved dirt. If So, I wouldn't mind tagging along. Don't worry, my riding skills on dirt intimidate no one.

jgiacobbe screwed with this post 11-12-2012 at 10:06 AM Reason: It looked funny

Jeez! That was a sexist comment if I ever saw one.

P.S. I purchased a really big snow blower at a good price because previous owner had moved into one of those high end retirement neighborhoods where they keep your yard nice and shovel snow for you in the winter. Anyways, it's literally in MINT condition but it won't idle right (jets clogged I imagine) Are you busy? Would you like to add "snowblower repairman" to your CV?

Totally out of context. I was implying that I will fall over just as much as everyone else and be just as slow or slower.

Careful John. Spring is a looong ways off.

Eddy could wind up renting that thing out for a good return on his investment.

and not just any snow blower but a really big one? Wonder why it's in mint condition with gummed up carb?

Can you teach it to blow leaves?
