I may soon have a pretty big, shiny secret. Just have to get the paper work straightened out

Laugh

Here was a random encounter.

I was exploring an old route up on the big ridges south of Douglas pass, cruising up through some tight two track in the oak brush. I saw something turn and take off, kinda big, kinda red.

Was it a herford?

I goosed it around the next little curve. Nope, not a cow.

It was a big cinnimon bear.

He looked like he wanted to race, so we made tracks together for about 75 or 80 yards 'til he finally peeled off into the cedars.

Glad he going my way, that sucker was fast!!

Pretty cool seeing these guys around.

Well...how many gallons does that super tanker of yours hold now? Like 10? Or was the gas like $8/gal?

It'll hold close to 13 gallons with expansion... I'd put just over 10 gallons in it.

I was just shocked when I looked up.. I usually put $35-40 in the car each week.. to see my motorcycle taking more than that made me a little sad.

...but then I hit the starter button and pealed outta the parking lot. Sadness over

That's 97.6 pounds of fuel! Your bike should go on a diet.
