    No DS atm, but I do plan to put a few easy miles on my trophy in the afternoon. Might even talk my buddy into stretching the legs on his new to him GL650.....

    Did anyone else ride to work today? It was 9f when I left home for work.
    I ride the Wee to work, I don't start up my good bike unless I'm going to Ride! it. It's a 2012 and I only have 38,000 miles on it. [ I need to ride more.]

    We need to have an ADV lunch meet.

    .Today I rode over to C.C.Cycle
    Had a great time with Bob [Owner] showing me all his plans for a vintage bike museum and accesery show room.
    He took the Tenere out for a while and was impressed with it. At least that's what he told me., Maybe he'll give up that H.D. thing and get an Adventure bike:rofl,....... I doubt it.
    Anyway he is a very nice guy!

    I meet a really nice guy [John] from Burlington today riding a DL650 Adventure.
    He rode it to Hyder, Ak. this summer.
    He was on his way home from just riding around and went all the way to Colorado.
    I'm going to try and hock up with him soon for a ride. If the weather holds out.
    I like the idea of just going for a ride and ending up in Colorado, That's my kind of a riding partner.

    :( battery in the sporty is toast, and I haven't changed the flat tire on the uly yet. I really should get off my ass and get another ride in before it gets shitty out.

    Drug the wife out for a 218 mile ride around SE Iowa. No pics or anything but she kept whining at me about having to wear rain pants until our first stop. She then mentioned that if she hadn't been wearing rain pants, she would have been cold and wet and miserable.

    See...the husband are smrt sumtymes.

    Was damp and foggy for about 80% of our ride and coming through Sully, looked like it might be raining off towards Des Moines but we got lucky and was just foggy again.
