    My east coast riding buddy just sent me this shot he took while I was being questioned by a LEO in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta back in August of this year.

    No, I wasn't speeding, and no, I wasn't smuggling discount American KTM parts. I was riding the 1 block from the gas station to the hotel... without my helmet on. The only time on the whole trip I didn't have it on, too.

    No ticket, but he did feel the need to lecture me at length about Canada's laws. After the formalities were out of the way, he lightened up a lot and asked me about the bike. Then, as a last word, he says to me, "If you saw what I see every day in this area, you wouldn't even ride around your back yard without a helmet on. The people here drive like shit!" :lol3

    This place is made up of a lot of great fellow inmates. Too bad it's spoiled by the occasional self-righteous indignant idiot that just has to put in his two cents (even when it completely off point).

    A few days ago, a fellow inmate makes a comment about me riding with the "wrong tires" in muddy conditions and my reply is somehow interpreted as me not respecting my buddies by not replacing an 80/20 tire with 60% tread left with knobbier tires. That's followed by some guy blaming his injuries on his motorcycle! :rofl:rofl:roflSome of you guys are just too much!:lol3:lol3:lol3



    Now back on topic....
    Here's a recent ride on a barrier island off the coast of North Carolina along the Intracoastal Waterway at sunset.

    I hate wet boots. Hate 'em. :becca



    Plus, it's fun to act goony occasionally. Although my wife doesn't think it's an act. :lol3
