    Passed a good sized group of dual sporters close to Washington Regional Medical Center on my way to dialysis at about noon today. I hope they were not leaving the ER do to any incidents.

    I just found out my campsite is about 4 minutes from Twisted Throttles Factory Outlet store. I don't have a bike to buy anything for.

    They were the cheapest/as cheap of the online sites I trust. It is a new release so probably makes a difference on discounts. If I was smart enough to wait a while might have got it a little cheaper, but what fun is waiting......

    Money is no object to us BMW kingpins anyway..

    All I know is, they have never been close to RMATV's prices. Pretty much no one has though, hence the reason I buy so much stuff from them. I'm a "money is very much an object" Honduh rider ya know. :lol2

    Without a doubt they are the first place to check! But they were the same price as Revzilla on this one but didn't have any in stock.

    I remember that... was at some bar or other with friends, this little short dude comes in and sits next to us. Gee, that guy looks just like John Fogerty. Holy shit, it is Fogerty! He was in town for that concert.

    Chatted for a bit, pretty cool dude.

    I've bought some stuff over at Kross Kountry. Tracy's prices are usually pretty competitive with online stuff. But you do have to pay sales tax. So that's another 10% bump you have to figure in. I'm curious to see if Cycle Gear hurts his business much. Hate to see him have to close up shop.

    Trying to figure food and beer. Are any of you going to swing by on Tuesday? I will have at least three (maybe five) riders from AK showing up.
