Congrats, Guy!

I know Eppa (Cycle Doc) has something similar to the one at this link. Makes sense to offer stranded bikers a pick-up to fix their bikes or maybe people don't have trailers readily available. Would probably pay for itself after a yr or so of recoveries etc.

Thanks, Guy! I'll be there - I don't need much of an excuse to get up to Lexington.

Good luck in your new endeavor. Not that you'll need it, my money's on you being a very busy man.

Wow retirement...sounds like a dream. It also sounds like you have put in your time plus Guy. Congratulations and good luck. Everyone I know that retired gets busier.

Great Honda, extra clean!

Thanks John, but have a full size trailer. That kind of service will be offered once I get my collective together.

Yeah, and I hope that's the case. Actually picked up a couple of welding jobs at lunch today at the Pinewood Inn. Whoda thunked.

Thanks Greg. We're gonna do what we can here to make it work.

BTW - Gretchen and her roomie really have their place looking nice. Megan, mom, Max, and I were over there this evening. I think her selection of places to live is really gonna work out. Had a nice long talk with Laurel's (sp?) friend David. He seems like a really nice fella and his being in the Navy, we've spent some time (as a civilian) in a few of the places he's been to thus far.in his career. This overall relationship could be fun.

No pix today, but BITB was well attended

Ran down there this morning for an hour or so, and the bikes were lined up down Main for quite a ways. Some really neat iron rolled in there, plus got so see some of the folks I've come to know over the years.

Nice!!

Had to scoot so I could get back before daughter, grandson, and wife headed back up to MD.

Nice morning.
