Yeah. Right now it's dead calm and that weird color that makes you wonder if it's the Second Coming.

I've not heard of Rick, but I like the idea of somebody that has a bike shop and skills that close to the Mill Creek system. So far, we've been lucky enough to be able to trail-repair most issues we've had while riding that area, but having Rick's number might get us out of a bind someday.

Last fall, one of our riders got a stick shoved through his Honda radiator. He found a guy in Clarksville who sealed it up so the ride could continue the next day. I wasn't there to see the repair man or hear the conversation, but it went something like:

"What do I owe you?"

"Ah...well...materials....time....will $20 work?"

To which my friend responded, "Will you take $40?"

Fifi Flying?

I hope some of you signed up to fly on Fifi this morning. I'll be heading out to the deck with my binocs fo give you a big when you circle around my house...if that big bird is actually flying this morning. If so, I should hear her warming up before long.

Rick is a personal friend. He is very good and very knowledgeable and he will treat you right.

I'm just anxious to see what's on Guzzi's podium.

The production model of the California 1400 is a sure thing, but it's rumored that Miguel Galluzzi has been working on a 1200cc retro along the same lines as the very successful V7 Classic!

Turkey! Went your direction instead of mine. Guess I'm just doing something wrong. ...or you're doing something right. Nah. What was I thinking?

Oh well, I got some good reading in on the deck.

She was headed southwest out of Springdale for what I figured was an approach to Drake Field.

Unfortunately, I'm just a couple of miles to the northeast of Drake Field. Seems like all the planes flying today are banking west instead of east when they take off and also coming in from the west on approach. Was the opposite when the B-17 was in town.

Ted, Charlie, Matt and his dad and son all watched Fifi land and take off....Thrilling!!
The video makes it appear the props are barely turning...obviously not the case with this monster!
