I think they need to open a GP in Nashville... Hopefully I'll make it back for a lunch before the weather gets really bad!

Nice day for lunch. Downright balmy for the end of Ocotober. I'll be riding to AGP with my wife today. Anyone want to join us?

On the bike, was planning on making it. Then realized we have a free "cookout" at work today. So long lines, crummy food, socializing with people that I don't really know / like or meeting up with you guys.

Crap. I hate work functions.

Not that I disagree with that stmt but I have to make the comment that you must enjoy riding leaned over and still going straight. It was a bit breezy this morning!

Doubt I'll make it to lunch- unless I end up dragging work related people along. Got some meetings that are rearranging my priorities. You know I'd rather ride to GP and eat with gearheads.

No GP today. I'll be spending my lunch limping the DR to the shop. Rear shock was spitting fluids this am on my way to work. I think the piston seal blew. Proabably down for at least a few weeks. Have to send the shock back. Have it repaired/replaced. Then re-installed. I'm letting the shop do it this time.

Ya'll have a great lunch. See you when I'm back on the road.

Yes it was quite breezy out there on 540...but my bike is a heavyweight so those gusty winds had little effect on it. Lunch with you all was great... Glad I made it. Now I wont be worrying 'bout that performance award I got down in Smithfield.

out for a bit.
No more CBR, and most of my left side.

Lesson learned, yet again, on a bike throttle, NOT brake would have been the right answer.

Will eventually post up what happened, but the other lesson, Joe Rocket's textile jacket SUCKS.


Edit: that's my shoulder, not anything else.
