I'm 3 days into quiting. I'm going thru 2 packs of extra gum, and half a pack of wooden coffee stirs per day.

I think I would stab a motherF**cker for a Marlboro Light right about now though. I keep telling myself it's going to get better. Hopefuly soon.

I would probably have a better chance of making this ride on the baby DR but the highway miles will be easier on the 650. oh well it's all in the name of FUN, right?

32° and an inch of icy snow in the driveway, I think the TDM is staying in the garage this morning.

Wow is it a great day for a ride!

Congrats Doug! You have been a non smoker for 3 + days! You have done it, just keep taking it a day at a time. The urges get smaller and farther apart after the first week.

It was 34 at home and the snow was only on the grass. Time to ride. To work




Ofcourse I'm kinda forced into right it now. Anyone have a cheap reliable car for sale.

Although I am not quite yet ready for a Burgman, it's time to realize that my skill set doesn't equate with muddy rutted inclines.

That being said, I appreciate you guys having me along today. You all have some great experience and riding skills. I had a blast after departing by riding back roads in Holmes County.

There is a section of ADV riders that enjoy long distance and foriegn travel and that's probably where I fit best. I didn't grow up on dirt bikes and at age 52 the gnarley stuff intimidates me.
