    Joyce and I plan to head over from here around noon. ETA 2:30 this afternoon. The weather is going to put a hurting on the beer supply. Rationing via a balance-beam and obstacle course to the beer taps?

    after a seemingly endless convalescence, I finally received medical clearance to ride the trails...I'm hoping the weather doesn't make things super slick! since I have worked so hard to get back to riding the trails I have no intention of boogering up my knee again this close to my TAT departure so I will be bringing some "supplies" with me to keep me busy if the trails are a mess. anyone with a nice set of tools and some muscle care to assist me with putting some new D606s on my CRF Rally??? I also just received some custom-made carbon fiber bits for side panel protection.

    I will barter CRAFT beer for mechanical advice and guidance. let's raise our glasses to our beloved Annie Redner, y'all!

    James Dickey used to be a professor at the university up here. I liked that other love story he wrote...the one that that ended with these immortal words:

    "We left by separate doors....
    Of cars, she down lutefisk Road
    And I to my cheddar
    My Harley Fat boy parked like the soul of an abused colon...I thought then of carnal knowledge...of my Spaniel of course...but also the sheep"

    Yea

    I debated but I'm so fat I don't think I could fit in the uhaul trailer with the bike to tie it down. Would've been nice for the extra storage room for my drill press and lathe.

    I have limited skill but great at peanut gallery comments. Also, I would love to learn more about changing a tire inn the trail. Finally, I drink lots of craft beer.
