I know how you feel. Looks like I'll finally be getting a little time off for bad behavior next week!

May take a few days and go riding out in and around the mountains west of here!

Try and do a little trip similar to what HBN did here last week.

Hell I don't care what the temps are if I can get a couple of days off for some much needed handlebar time.

Jack's got 450 miles of pretty much nothing but sand, rocks, and cacti ahead of him before he's outta Texas.

Did I mention that West Texas sucks?

I don't know, the Big Bend area is kinda cool. Then again that's more southwest than just west.

Doesn't look like Jack will be heading that far south. Hopefully we won't have the same kind of fun that I had in west Texas (the "town", and I do use the term very lightly, of Orla, TX) back on a cross country road trip in '08.

Let me clarify, the area where both Interstates go through Texas west of US-83 sucks.
