hope everybody had good holidays, i got to see alot of family & friends i only get to see once or twice a year, lots of driving, but it was good

got to try out my dads new ride





he'd decided to to shrink the herd in his garage, so he put one up for sell in greensboro, when he went to pick up the cash he picked that up. He's not real good at herd shrinking


the day robin & me tried it, it was 38 degrees so it was short test ride, but it's a sweet ride. like a space ship


now for those of you wondering what i got for christmas

i got a shirt
a pair of pants
a piece of pussy .........

& they were all to big

lol, you probably know more people at these than i do.

last week at fred's i parked in the feild next door, during all that rain, i got stuck. Walked back to fred's, tom was the first person i saw, He said i thought you left, i said i'm stuck, to which he replied i can't help you with that, but come on i know where fred hid his beer

this week robin was showing how to restore old paint, He was using one of leo's tanks he'd had for awhile. In alittle bit leo said isn't that tank under the bench mine too. Robin looked around and said yea, i'm collecting leo's tanks, don't tell him

sunday i worked a while & went home for some brunch. I saw where chris had posted on fb anyone wanta go for a short ride before the game.


go back to work or go for a ride

so i met chris & connie at bar dog downtown

it's a real clear day rode some of the only twisty rds near memphis, perfect day for taking pictures

aaa if i'd charged the camera battery

ya'll will have to take my word, what great day it was

then the batteries in the walkman die

still better than work

stopped at shelby forest general store


ok a cell phone pic



connie had never been there before, turns out she used to work in a office years ago with the owner

small world

rode down to the river, some twisty roads tru the forest back roads back to town. When by memphis U where one of chris freinds were giving another friend riding lessons.



she was doing good & loving it (1st bike)



we followed them around a couple of laps, then headed to slider inn to watch the rest of the football game

falcons lost but they had a heck of season maybe they'll make it next year

saturday morning was cold cloudy and dreary, but it was supposed to clear off & we'd decided last night to go to the big priate show & or "the great american motorcycle show" down in norcross.

Late morning i was messing around the basement (shed i keep the bikes in) thinking i need to go back to the house and put on long johns. Then the thought hit me wait a minute i've still got a pair of chaps in here somewhere. Found em, put em on, they used to fit good. I must of rode in the rain alot back then cause i could barely get them around me

Robin came down in her chaps and brand new used rainer jacket i'd bought her, she held up the liner and said do ya think i'll need this. I laid it across the seat and zipped in linier while i burnt a hole in the arm againest the tail pipe of the bike warming up.

you can see it on the left forearm



so we load up the chrome slug, turn the radio up, set the cruise and head south on the super slab.

We stopped at buford to warm up.

had my first pumpkin cappocano , not bad




some guy starts talking to us tells us he just sold a 05 just like mine, still has trailer hitch for if i want it i can have it. Why hell yea i want it. Thats all i need to make this boat in to a sure enough geezer glide. Gave him my # we see what happens.

sks in lilburn had addvertisted a "big motorcycle yard sell"

didn't look so big to us


sign on the window said gone to lunch
