We would spend at least 3 hours at dinner each night so between work and dinner there wasn't much else to do...



My bosses Japanese impression. ;)


Some castle that I don't remember name of...







I didn't go skiing today because they got 4 feet of fresh power overnight. :( I'm flying out of Basel/Mulhouse tomorrow and can't wait to get back home!

Gee, indypup, you go to France and eat Japanese food and drink beer? I see you finally got into some wine.
Beautiful country, though!

I'm hoping to ride on ice tomorrow at Buckeye Lake. Am planning on heading out with the bike to see if it is thick enough to go. Anyone who wants to be the ice thickness test dummy please do stop in. I'm bring my buddy who lent me his TTR225 two years ago to give him a chance to ride to see what it's like.

Hopefully swimming won't be a part of the days activities. Liebs Island about 11am ought to be the plan.

Later,
M

Went to the V-Twin Easyrider dealer show in Cincy today, wow, what a let-down. This show has getting smaller every year for the last four years. Probably one-third smaller than last year.
Nothing new, no big break-throughs or new thrends.
Don't know whether we'll go to Indy dealer show or not. Hope this isn't a future glimpse of the MC business.
If gas goes up next year, I'll prolly sell at least two scooters and get a bigger dual-sport.

Beautiful town





I put a twist in my trip, with cyclocross worlds move to Saturday, the family hounding my butt over the weather and mother nature pms-ing the area, I drove to Charlotte and will be rolling west in the morning. The weather here was so bad, I had to wear a long leave shirt on the walk.

Hey Mike, I agree Valdez is beautiful. I didn't get there on my recent trip, but I did get down to Seward a month ago.

Mike,if you're interested I have a 9800 gallon tank on the lot here,I'm sure we could rig something up and get you a couple gallons more on the bike. Comes with it's own crank down centerstand. At 40mpg it's only 392,000 mile range, so you might have to fill up once every 2-3 bikes.

Nice pics,both of you guys.

I'm gonna head that way soon. If there's no riding today, I'll probably just be getting lunch somewhere in the area.

David.
