Well, the other half would have just been too, too much. ;)

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

Sorry, not on much yesterday. My mom is not doing to good. Had to take her to ER Sunday afternoon. She is home now but very weak. She has had 5 strokes and balancing her blood medicines is very meticulous. It something gets out of synch, she crashes fast. At 79, every day is a challenge for her now.

So my car is being built in Mexico...maybe I should go ride down to see it?

I bet Schizz would be up for it.

Well, the little Harley goes to the shop. I have vibrated more stuff off. Gee. Can't imagine how that happened. But this time it will require surgery to fix. Of course, the part couldn't be more difficult to reach. My wallet feels lighter already.

Oh, joy.

I understand as the 36 year old Goose was showing a light smoke cloud under acceleration from Chalk Mtn
to the house. It couldn't be I pushed it a little harder than usual.

Did I say I had Fun.

Glad you got home. We all talked about going back and helping you but Big Dave said you had it under control. I still dont understand the physics that allowed you to keep up with THE GHOST on those gravel roads. And on a thirty six year old twin with a home built side car

Scatershooting while thinking about Ghost party

I wonder how Jaybay did riding the bitch ditch. TxJames went down once and I went down three times. I bet he cleaned it!
The older crowd this time had some good stories to tell. Is it because they have more BS or is it the tongue loosening that the liquid spirits effect.
I did not realize that our greatest road warrior had a bad health issue. Please take care of yourself. We cant let the pirates dominate the roadways.
I found out that the pie provider spent maybe $6:00 on each pie. times 5 pies= $30.00. I had no idea they cost that much.
Good thing I left after going down 5 times. I was seized up bad before I got home, and the bride had to help me get off the bike. Didnt play golf Monday.
The Katoom is at the hospital now getting a Recluse clutch. I will conquer Has Been hill yet!
