now y'all know why I ride as slow as I do...I have tried in the past to mention to y'all that if you can not see 12 seconds ahead of you, SLOW DOWN! And if on a hill that you can not see over, slow da fawk down and move to the right...if a bubba had been coming the other way tryin to get the front end of his truck off the ground, then we'd all be making plans to attend a funeral..as Charlie said, slowing down is ok.

On the road going to Mossycreeks, there is such a hill or rise on the road. Twice I have narrowly missed having a head on because someone was comming the other way at a fast clip..if I hadn't been following my rule, I would have been taken out by both attempts.

A riding buddy is always good to have, Charlie and Mike are proof of that!

Yep I ride too fast too O'Jay. It's just too much fun. One thing I have learned is to slow down in limited sight situations (think blind corners or steep hills).

Besides, I don't heal like I did when I was 20 years old.

Was someone working on a list of old barns locations? A friend of mine would like to photograph as many as possible before they fade away.

I think Doc was looking for old barn info for some file or project he was dabbling with. I know several old barn pics have been posted in the ride report thread but I'm not sure if locations were logged with the pics.

Got the XR out for a bit yesterday Joe. I do like that lil bike.

40+ years ago my older sister taught me to honk the horn as I come to the top of a hill on 2 lane roads. I've scattered herds/flocks/gatherings of turkey, geese, deer, dogs and other creatures including humans that I could have hit by just honking as I near the top of the hill.

I ride so dang slow I make ALL of yall look like Travis pastrami.



But I dont figure this is the right time to be giving Oleary any riding advice, or opinions.

Heal fast, ride as you want, and the rest of us need to find, and thank the guy that found Tim in a ditch.

Tell Tim I'll be praying for him. I was shocked to hear about his accident. I hope he has a smooth recovery.

I wasn't referring to Mike's incident. I just thought I'd share and maybe people would quit wondering why I honk.

Anymore info on the barns would be appreciated.

I no understand this thing called "slowing down". Please explain.......

I do always try and ride with enough old farts to rite the pigboat when she wallers. Sometimes I ride with too many.



But I sure appreciate the help!

Looks like this past riding season was lost to Charlie and at least the first part of next season will be lost to Tim. Hopin ya heal fast Tim!

WOW, Get well soon Tim!!!

It's an evolutionary process that sometimes fails to develop fully in some males of the homo sapiens species. It's primarily a self preservation instinct, but depends heavily on a little known factor called "wisdom". Wisdom has the effect of making the males of the species act with maturity and caution. This normally works on some who decide to let the greater portion of life drift past them unnoticed. Those who fail to develop this "wisdom" tend to have higher levels of testosterone, and continue to produce it to a much later point in life. These individuals are just that, individualists. They embrace life and wrestle it to the ground kicking and screaming. These members of the species often scare the lesser members and are looked up to by younger males in adoration and the females of the species, who generally want to mate with these members in order to pass along superior genetics.
Occassionally the lack of "wisdom" will lead to life altering circumstances which tend to have periods called "recovery". But don't ask them to change, it seldom happens. Change will occur only when the individual accrues some "wisdom". Administered properly wisdom has life enhancing properties which can be used in conjunction with testosterone to keep lesser individuals in awe. It's a wonderful thing.
