Thinking about doing some night surveillance on the bike now that you quite smoking? The noise of the bag of chips crumbling and ever present flatulence will compromise your sting. Congrats on the smoke stoppage, I am now 3 years clean. B

OK, here's my footage of the Memorial Day ride.

Did you sign anything agreeing to pay for diagnosis when you dropped off the bike? I'd be more than pissed.

NIGHT RIDE


WRR's tail light is fixed (bad ground), heated grips are fixed (bad switch), and I found a spare fog light in my basement, but the output was terrible so I didn't even mess with mounting it. Chain is still dripping with oil, so hopefully it doesn't eat the slider.

I'm PUMPED!!!

Finding a snack and then rolling out. I should be there early.


Why is nobody else talking about this?

What you have in mind?

I was at Hidden Springs Ranch today. GPS tracks if anyone needs them. Copied to Kim also and hopefully formated into a usable map for her.
