So how about that black sea ride report :eek1
Thank's for taking us along on all your adventures!
well, answering the same questions gets a bit old, over & over, but you just have to remember that this person hasnt met you before, and he/she is just curious.
I have been known to have a little fun with it tho, this happened more than once....
them 'what year is that?
me 'twenty eight'
them 'nineteen twenty eight?'
me 'no, eighteen twenty eight'
them 'really? wow.....'
I enjoy walking into a place carrying a helmet and dressed in all the usual moto nonsense, and the question is...
them 'are you riding a motorcycle?'
me 'no, I just like to dress up'
me (i cross my eyes)'tomorrow I get to dress up like an AS-tronaut'
I kind of like it when they ask those kind of questions, sort of like listening to call in talk radio, it makes me feel like a genius. Then I start ot worry, thinking about them voting.:huh
And procreating! :huh
I always like to tell people that I still have really over protective parents that are worried about me falling.
I had fun showing them how we fixed things in Alabama

"I'm having fun, even if the bike is not agreeing with everything too much."
That's a great attitude amigo. Doesn't always have to be about competition, does it?
Thanks for taking us along on the Cannonball!
and that answers the question I didn't ask about what the 4 faced fat guy shift-knob signified
I do note the happy face is on top :)
adv frontpage picture if i've ever seen one.
Tuesday night (oct 23rd) I'll be on the internet radio show SideStandUp for my very first (and probably only) post cannonball interview. Adventure! Drama! and a generous sprinkling of Bullshit! You dont wanna miss it! Show starts at 8pm, EST
<BR>Thanks for the ridealong Doug. You rule!
Can't wait to see the pics of the return leg.
I'll be listening for you on sidestandup.com this afternoon.
Bad ass trip, Doug. It amazes me what you went through to keep that old bike going dude! And not to mention helping everyone else while you were at it. Right ON.
I've heard lots of bullshit going around over the past few years, that most of the CBR guys are rich fuckers with too much money, too much time on their hands, blah blah blah. Just cheap talk IMO. The pussy ass bitches talking that shit are TALKING while the CBR guys (AND gals) are RIDING. So STFU all you sour grapes assholes. (none of which are on advrider -to my knowledge- BTW)
Get off the couch every so often and get out on the bikes why dontcha.
Ciao 4 now Doug, see ya around man.
ricochetrider in PA.
At least you have it all figured out.
Bet you spend a lot of time in Jo Mamma
there were alot of people on the CB that have money. some have alot. like millionaire types.
And some of the guys riding dont have any mechanical skills, and had others working on their bikes for them
But, they did ride the bikes. Not everyone can fix a bike, but they all rode their old bikes for over 3000 miles.
Yeah, Im sure it made life easier to pull in at night, hand the bike over to your crew and go relax in your hotel room.
I know staying up late wrenching then tossing the sleeping bag down next to the bike at midnite wasnt the most comfy way to do it, but it worked ok for me. I did find somewhere inside to sleep on the real cold nites tho :)
So rich or poor, I gotta hand it to everyone that rode.
because it wasnt a fuckin picnic.
but it sure was fun!
I had it explained to me one time that some people have wrenches in their toolboxes and some have a check book in theirs. I have tools in mine and the guys with check books in theirs sometimes make my wrenches worth more money. Bein rich ain't a crime. Never had a poor guy pay me to work on anything. It's what's in your head and heart that counts. If I could do the CB, and I'm thinking about trying to find a basket case to start on, I'd do it your way because that's the way I go. Nothing against the chase crews and nice rigs. Neither way is wrong just different. But to me Doug, your way rocks!!
