I briefly talked with her, but not about bikes. I've heard good things about those F650GSs

I don't think this girl at the LC was much bigger than that, so it might work for her. But otherwise, then pillion it is. You gonna get the matching jackets?

She could do a ninja 250, and she sat on a low seat 650, not a low suspension one though. A bonnie could also probably work.

LOL, like you'll get much say in that. She'll buy herself a new jacket and then show up with a matching one for you. And then you'll have to decide which you like most - sex or wearing your old jacket. Choose wisely my friend...

Waco motorcyclist dead

Hoping all my fellow CenTex riders are still with us...


Motorcycle accident leaves one dead

(from KXXV News channel 25)

"WACO - A motorcycle accident that happened Thursday morning has left one person dead.

At 6:40 a.m., police responded to a fatality crash at Orchard and Kendall Lane in Waco.

Officers discovered that a motorcycle had been traveling East on Orchard. At the same time, a pick-up was at a stop sign off of Kendall Lane and had attempted to turn west onto Orchard.

The motorcycle crashed into the left front of the truck, killing the male rider.

Officers have identified the motorcycle rider, but his name is not being released pending notification of family. The two occupants in the pick-up were not injured in the crash."
