3) I'm going to need a pretty substantial sign on bonus. I would also like to have in writing, the terms of my severance package, which I will draft up and get to your secretary.

4) I don't have any experience in the Insurance Business so I will need light duty for atleast 6 weeks, let's say 2 days a week of actual work and the rest of the time I will just ride around with you and learn who's who.

While I understand you may have concerns about me not having any working experience in the field, I assure you that I can bullshit with the best of them.

Shall I get my own name plate made up or can you handle that?

Regards,

Tommy

PS: To whom do I submit my vacation request form to? I think I want to go down to Daytona this October for Bike Week. If you go, we could write it off as a company expense.

Tommy, you probably need to go ahead and have that golden parachute placed in a trust, I'm sure Frank would go along with that. I would be happy to draft the trust and would of course act as trustee. It would probably be wise to invest the corpus in assets which are sure to appreciate, such as uh..motorcycles. Maybe a Moto Guzzi Norge and one of those Can Am Spyders. Well, a Spyder is not really a motorcyle but I think it would be fun...I mean I think it would be a wise investment.

I had a blast today riding 60 miles of your super nice stuff

After we ate,
I decided to run up to Bucktown & hit the freshly graded road [2nd & 3rd gear ripping] up to the plane
crash site, then down into Amicalola Falls SP.

I got drown'ded [rain] 6 times before I gots back to Calhoun.

230 miles clocked roundtrip today for me . . . . . . NO, I dont got pics.

Yes, excellent riding BD. I'm up for it again soon - and I'll be happy to meet you in Calhoun so you can show me your secret trails this time.

I figure if we all ride Bucktown once a week sliding our way through it'll be back to ruts and rocks in no time

Anybody else remember when they graded Flatland about 5yrs ago (or maybe it was 8)?

I remember Flatland being graded. It didn't take long for the grading to get washed out. I wouldn't be surprised if they let Old Bucktown go without maintenence for the next 10 years or so.

Louis would you be interested in checking out the new offroad park in Clairmont next weekend? http://www.motomountainpark.com/index.html
This weekend looks like a wash, with some heavy rain storms moving through. I still plan on riding but I'm just going to stay close to the house.

Still planning on being at HP at 10am tomorrow on the Strom. If things are too muddy there, we'll just go explore in Eastern AL around the area and have a big bike DS ride - http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...php?p=13745664

Old Bucktown Road

Hey D.O.G.s ! After reading in the thread about Old Bucktown Road being graded, I had to go take a look for myself. Peggy and I headed out of Suches by way of the Ranger Station and decided to ride Nimblewill up to the plane crash plaque. It was amazing to ride down the Old Bucktown side on the 990. Although it is graded, there is still no gravel on the road and there were some real muddy sections. But my new Dunlop 908RR on the rear certainly helped me through the mud. I am certain if I had the stock Pirelli Scorpions on, I would've never made it without falling at least once! Peggy's trusty TransAlp served her well and without incident. It was a great ride!
We made it to TWO just in time for a fabulous lunch and enjoyed Sunday afternoon chats on the front porch with old and new friends! SR
