Think about it, JD. If we'd have been having anymore fun than that, we'd have been doing something illegal. Or something.


As always, remember kids, Uncle slowoldguy says : think safety first.
Indeed! Only another LC ride must wait.

If I don't ride the Sisters next weekend I'll be up for more safe and legal fun with you and Rod and whoever.

I would have enjoyed this ride also but was tied close to home by the work chain.
Next Saturday another group I belong to is meeting here @ around 11am.:

Luling City Market
633 E. Davis St
Luling , Texas

Any that enjoy BBQ are welcome......Jeff

Tried on a Rallye 3 suit at the local (NJ) dealer when I was back home.

Definitely not a need...

But on the top of the DO WANT list.

I'll just add that I was very pleased with the behavior of the rev limiter compared to the Harley.

HAHA! Me too. Size 50 fit me like a glove! And it was 15% off. So that brings it to a reasonable $680 (jacket only). I'm gonna get a few different colors at that price.

I might go with if I didn't already have a dirt ride scheduled. Been a year or two since I've attended one of those. Be sure to put Motoliberty and Bone Daddy's in your loop.

TX & Schick....

I'm just bummed about the NO TEST RIDES aspect of the show this year. They're only doing test rides at certain shows & Dallas doesn't look to be one of em. Rode the SupTen last year.....was fun.

Bill from Butler Maps is gonna be there doing some ADV Riding talks Fri Sat & Sun. Finally get to meet him after all the messaging.

...& Triumph is coming back to the Dallas Show this year. Not sure if they'll have the Tiger 1200 there though. A bit soon for it... maybe
