You guys are tempting me to change my username.

Well, took La Buenota out for a ride. Took a picture of the tag (saved to memory because card was full) rode to new tag location and took that picture. Now the pictures are nowhere to be found on the camera.

The GS was running nice I even managed a several inch wheelie.

Motorcyclist killed near San Perlita. This was the brother of someone I work here at UTPA. Those are easy curves so the accident is puzzling.

One person was killed Saturday morning in a motorcycle crash in rural Willacy County.
It happened just before 9 a.m. on Highway 186 east of FM 3142 near San Perlita.
Department of Public Safety spokesperson, Trooper Johnny Hernandez, identified the person killed as Phillip Bennack, 54, of Lyford.
He said the motorcycle was traveling west on Highway 186 when Bennack “failed to negotiate a right hand curve and went off the roadway.”

There had to be a contributing factor, perhaps a car going wide that left the scene, medical issue, etc. ‘cause those are extremely easy curves. Could also be that the report is wrong and he was trying to transition from 186 to the FM road, that would be tricky ‘cause 186 is banked, trying to make that transition would unsettle the suspension if going too fast.

One of the guys at breakfast said he was riding a GS or some other Dual Sport bike. Do you know what kind of bike he was riding?

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

Very sad. Thoughts and prayers to the family.

I still need to order a few parts for it. I need to also do a good check of the parts that were in the plane crash to really make sure they will work. I am thinking of replacing all the servos anyways. The RC club has their meetings on the first monday of each month, so I can't get my membership done until then anyways.
