    Made it home in one very-soggy piece. :uhoh

    Kinda funny.

    I'd been on the first blinking stage of the fuel level warning (.8 gallons left) when rolling down 405 right by the old Wilburton tunnel work.

    Thought I was running out of gas since the bike acted like my older petcock-equipped bike needed to be flipped into reserve. Realized I was on the Strom and that I had FI and I was spinning up the rear tire at steady throttle.

    Not exactly warm fuzzy feeling at 55mph in a spray fog while being tailgated. :loco

    True 'nuf. On vacation this week and thus eating my own cooking. :lol3

    I'm hoping to make it this week, but I have a teacher conference with my son's teacher Thursday nite.

    If the weather's good, I'm going to ride on up for a brew and hushpuppies anyway. Probably get there about 7:30.

    That of course assumes the shop gets done with the bike by Thursday afternoon too. :dunno

    Guys,

    Disclaimer: This is not a hijack! Just a friendly cross pollination suggestion.

    ItÂ’s a beautiful afternoon, how would you like to take a ride, on back roads, up to Engel's Pub in Edmunds.
    113 5th Ave S
    Edmonds, WA 98020

    Get Directions(425) 778-2900

    Have a nice cool beverage and some ribs or a pulled pork sandwich.
    You might even rub elbows with some real honest to goodness BAJA 1000 racers...:deal

    There will be a good turnout tonight as this is the first (available) Thursday since being back from BAJA.

    I'll even have some Snortin' Boar Racing stickers to hand out.

    We moved it to Celtic Bayou in Redmond. Keep an eye on the thread. People have been posting if there are going to make it. I think when the weather warms up we will see more people. Celtic Bayou has a outdoor patio, so this spring it will be nice to hang out there with a Pint and burger. Hope to see you next year.
    Happy New Year.

    When: Thursdays around 6pm!

    Celtic Bayou, Irish Pub & Cajun Cafe
