    Ok folks. I'm not riding anymore. My sense of balance is rotten, my hearing is blown out from smileage and jet engines. I should sell my BMW and gear and deal with being an old fart. All that aside. I need some help, I've got a brain fart.

    Anyone remember Captain Joe? AKA KOMET, he had 38k posts here, he was a a great friend, he used to come over to my house on Forrest at odd hours because he was night captain of the west precinct on Union Ave. I could be drunk or passed out and he'd tap on the door with a big flash light and sooner later I'd answer, he'd come in and I'd boil coffee and tell him where I'd been out there on the road. He'd give me the "crime report" He was ok, he really was. I didn't know cops. Kinda scared me at first but at the time, knowing someone from ADV back then and both of us living in Memphis was a rare thing outside of hooking up with farkers on the road.

    He retired and had some adventures on the road and I'm glad he finally got OUT THERE. But some of ya'll know he got cancer and passed away.

    So....I'm sitting here and can't think of Joe's/KOMET's last name. Anyone remember it? I've poked around google but can't find a combination of names/words to settle my consternation. When you get old, you want to remember people's names.....

    Thanks for your help.

    Just some FYI: Street bikes are in at Graham KTM Senatobia, MS. And They're nice :D

    Here's an 1190R Adventure we put together today. It's got all the goodies. It's a Demo :evil hint hint. Should have our dealer plates hopefully after the new year, so whenever they arrive it'll be open for rides! After they arrive i'll try and steal it for an evening and make a dinner ride, so all can see :D

    I have been waiting for them. Might be my next bike. I saw one headed south down I-55 a couple of weeks ago.

    Here is a link where you can purchase your tickets to "Why We Ride". It will be showing at the Cordova Malco on January 13. Might make a good dinner ride.

    That looks like a good movie. I'm a definite maybe. I will check and make sure there are no "family" plans that night.

    I saw them...I don't think any of them had an electric vest either.

    It was 24 degrees when we got into the car.:huh

    (Just as the movie started, did you hear the guy yell "Don't touch me there!"?)
