No slinking for me, sucks to have a job. Not to worry, one of these days I'll swoop in and snatch the tag and bring it out to the west again..................if I can ever get my Google fixed.

Oh, I know the feeling. I look out the window and there is the bike, waiting. I look at the computer and there is the map to the location, waiting. I look at the clock and ask myself, "If I get there before dark (the place is likely lit up anyway) what are the chances that one of those 700+ students that have the flu will infect my sorry ass before I can leave the campus?"

I think I'll just go home tonight and have popcorn and beer for dinner. &

And now a special announcement

There is another large area Tag-o-Rama game in progress. Check out the Appalachian Tag-o-Rama. The tag is currently located in PA, well within reach of the Empire State taggers.

Now back to the regular programming

New Tag!


Harkening back to a tag earlier in the summer.....

The kids in the pix are random fans of motorcycles - I was chatting with a friend, turned around and there they were - ready to try to the turn signals, honk the horn, pull in the clutch - adventure riders in the making!

How many bikes are in that garage? The Suzuki (?) and the Iron she rides aren't on either profile. That XR isn't on your sig list there. Did you do some trading in, just plain shopping or a demo ride? If it's a demo ride it's a long one 'cause that isn't very close to Alpine Junction.

New Bike!

Traded the Road Glide this morning for the XR and a big check. I really did enjoy the '05 RG I had and traded on the '09 RG last fall, but never really fell in love with the new RG.

This XR is a hoot! Love the thing and only 200 miles so far... I think it is powered by a Buell motor!

Have you read this thread: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=496160 or possibly met it's author? Also, did you do business over in the Junction, up in the 'cuse or down at Southern Tier? I have long been a fan of the Road Glides.

Cool2 Thanks!

great link. Had not seen that. Don't know GS Bones, but may try to track him down.

Got the bike at Ithaca HD at the Junction. John Sorgi has always treated me VERY well.

The brakes are one finger great and the power is quite good, all stock. Can't wait to pay the tax and see the gains that will bring.

Woohooo!
