The weather up there was beautiful this morning!











Would have been a great day to just explore the hills....but I had a lunch appointment in SC....










It already looks steamy down there!






















I made it to the Springs Greenway in Ft. Mill right on schedule.











These three girls are the daughters of one of my co-workers.









It was a fund raiser as he's been out of work battling leukemia and just had a bone marrow transplant and his wife lost her job due to being absent with a sick hubby










Cornhole tournament!



























I didn't play but the BBQ was good!











The turnout was very good! So hopefully this will help them get by for a little longer while he's recovering.






Should have brought along some shorts to change into as it was too hot to just hang out in riding gear!

Great shots of a great weekend at Willville! Thanks for putting them up. Good to see you again, and good to spend time with everyone who made it to Willville.

Mr. Banjo,

I continue to enjoy reading your posts and seeing all your pics.

I am and always will be amazed at your photo technique - some readers of this thread may not realize that while driving with one hand at a decent speed around a curve on gravel, you deftly point and shoot, point and shoot with the other hand. Amazing.

I got a new R1200RT so we'll have to ride together again soon (when you get back from Wetfest).

Also, I have a huge Allen wrench for removing the front wheel from a Wee - I'd like to get that to you so you can either use it or give it to someone who will. I can't remember exactly which street / house is yours so if you'll drop me a PM and let me know how to get this to you...

Ride safe!

Out West, and back East. (all routes subject to change)


There's only a couple of places where I don't have any personal leads for accommodations... Casper, WY & Bozeman, MT anybody have an inside line?

How much would you pay for a city limits sign?

I go through Red Bud, IL any time I visit my brother in Swansea, which I will be doing 9/15. Please do not remove the city limits sign . . . I am easily confused and could end up in Peoria or Chicago!

Leave it to crazy old uncle Floyd!


Finished up all the planned bike maint. yesterday and went for a shake down run today to make sure there weren't any surprises.


I also needed a little practice before crossing the plains...so I found a straight road that paralleled some RR tracks.









I actually thought that I was in Nebraska for a minute or two.











The back side of Washburn






















Seen lots of cool old cars out today but this is the only one the camera caught.













Everything seems to be good to go! :fingerscrossed


I even made one of those sewer pipe things so the KLR riders would stop picking on me!








It's really just a potato gun for tailgaters.









Scheduled for a Thursday morning launch......
