I feel the love.

I'll make sure to never drive my Miata around you guys. I guess you'd make fun of my purple motorcycle too.

Not much of a breakfast guy, plus I'm usually too busy in the AM.

Let me know when you guy are having dinner & I'll stalk you again.

Everybody has a few TT stories. I'm fairly certain that the police officers here won't see Terry in the same light as I did
His criminal record as relayed by the T/R speaks otherwise. 366 days in prison for firearms violations, 11 misdemeanor charges involving cruelty to animals or abandonment over the past 7 years, and then of course the setting loose of his entire "collection" to cause mayhem right before he killed himself.

I don't know the guy... but he kinda sounds like an asshole.

And, for what it's worth, from a general standpoint, every media account that features interviews with a suspect's friends and family always has those people describing him as a great guy, total shock to them that he (insert heinous crime here), never would have believed it in a million years, yadda yadda yadda. Bullshit. Writing is always on the wall, sounds like in this guys case it has been on the wall for a while. Eccentric / misunderstood guy who collected bears, lions, and machine guns. Yeah, I never woulda seen that coming.

Later,

This bridge is in the yard of one of my buddies. They built it using an old flat bed semi-trailer as the base. The bridge is on Ponetown Rd. near Ray.

V-Stroms Suck.

There. Happy?


I did realize last night, in a total revalation, that Blue Tenere's are NOT that super! Can one believe it? It was a sad conclusion. Very sad. I was thrown for a loop in what I had stood to believe for a long time. This period of time was more then a year in length. My whole foundation in the knowledge of Blue Tenere's being the ONLY possible good bike came to an absolute end. A sad end.

That is correct. I no longer feel that Blue Tenere's are Super. Not in the least bit. Blue Tenere's now suck, even the Raven ones, and V-Strom's. They all just suck. Totally suck!

I stopped in at O'Reilly's Pub in Clintonville last night to have a few beers with another Tenere Owner. I was the guiding force in this persons decision to get a Tenere, it was not a pre-order sale even! The Dealer found them one. So, I rode in and parked my Blue Tenere next to that Blue Tenere. Matching Cases. Matching Blue. Same bike! That is when I realized the awefull truth. The truth that Blue Tenere's are not Super. The Side by Side view opened my eyes! Only did this comparison allow me to arrive at this conclusion.

I was so distraught over this revelation that I was not able to take the camera out and get a picture even. I was only able to proceed with life because the beer was good. Really good.

It turns out, the only good Tenere, ready for it? Is.....







A Blue Super Tenere with the Yellow Stickers!







Ah, ha ha ha. I crack myself up.

Heh,

But seriously, they found the owner of this exotic animal farm dead and his animals all set loose on the countryside.

Not a good situation.
I just got back from riding over 6000 miles hoping to see exotic animals. I should have known that we have it all right here in SE Ohio!

BTW, I was out at lunch and the news just kept repeating that there was still a "monkey, a mountain lion, and a grizzly bear" still on the loose and I chuckled every time they said it because it sounded like such a great line for the start of a joke. Something like...

"A monkey, a mountain lion, and a grizzly bear walk into a bar. The monkey turns to the bear and says 'You've been stuck in that cage by yourself for so long that your tenere is starting to turn blue'..."









I've got no finish, but it is a great start I think.
