Maps

Paper is great, no question. I've never had a GPS before now and have detested them until I found out that you can share tracks and trails with others that have been there before.....other than that I'd rather get lost and find my own way out!

So, you're still on the break-in period for your K16?

That average is probably going to drop a bit lower today.....

Of course I have to be taking a final during Hawthorne's and miss on the free beer.


It's my last final too.

If you had WeatherTAP you could get super HD radar and tell what side of the road it was raining on, then plot a route through the holes in the rain.







*Shameless Plug. My family business owns WeatherTAP.

Whether to tap or not to tap. That is the question.

I fixed that picture for you by eliminating the distraction...



With all due apologies to the family...

No apparently that is someone that the head programmer went to school with.

We'll since Numa put up a "greetings from" I thought I would too, plus if this doesn't get your minds off the Weather Tap girl then I don't know what will!

Greetings from West Monroe, LA!

Does she like motorcycles? Adventure touring, dual sport, touring or sport bike? (Hopefully, she's not into Harley's.). Does she like Hawthorne's pizza? Meat lovers or veggie? (Please say it's meat lovers.). Mountains or beach? (We're all praying for an affirmative response for mountains.)

Does she lean to the right, politically, and can she change a motorcycle tire -- even when it has two rim locks? I have so many questions.

No idea. Send me a list of questions and I'll forward them up the chain.

But I can say that KatoomWife is an affirmative to all those. She even has her own DR350.

And mortal hell can she cook.


To answer the next question yes she still has one sister that's not married. She caught pancakes on fire. Twice.
