Billy,

Life is good. I even have a coffee mug that says that!

I've been lurkin' -- and ridin'.

We'll definitely have to meet up before long. I had lunch at Riders Hill the weekend everybody and his brother was at the Sandblast, so I missed you by a week, according to Dave. (I couldn't make it to the Sandblast, unfortunately. )

I rode to Greenville Saturday morning for the IMS well after the sun was up, and it was still brisk, so I know your pre-dawn run to work had to be chill-lay. I love me some heated gear.

Take care,
Chris

Some lady pulled up in her mini van, typical redneck lookin' lady, nothing special far as I could see. She walks over, looks at the bikes... "Great" I think, this should be comical. She asks who rides the KTM. She says she watched that Long Way AROUND and KTM was their first choice, she had never seen one in person. Then she said that boy Charlie could really ride. Totally NOT what we were expecting. There's a lesson to be learned there for sure.
that story right there is PRIME, boys. i like that mark. good to hear.
i love KTM stories.

DOGS Takeover

Pretty quiet around here with many of the DOGS regulars down at the Scrub. I say we start a political coup and takeover while they are gone! Anyone want to take Flux's place and be the new DOG leader? Adventure parties with dancing girls, free beer, free oil changes........Long live the new DOG King (or Queen)
