    Thanks Lady D!

    edit: Ah! I just checked out the IBA website. It was very interesting. I'm starting to think about it. Could be a little hard on a 450, the bike as well as my butt.

    You can do it on a 450 ...
    I know a few folks the have done a ss1000 on 250 !!!

    Riding steady is the main thing... Keep your stops smart.... ...And by all means enjoy the ride..... :ricky

    Plus if you have never done 800 miles in the saddle .. Your fitness level might not be there yet... Just keep on riding ... Built your fitness up...

    There is nothing like you~ your bike~the wind....:ricky

    The Pizza has Sauteed Onions,Portabella,peppers,carrots,my home made Pickled peppers,Spinach And fresh mozzarella cheese,my home made canned Sauce on a Whole Wheat flax seed dough..

    Oh the other pizza will get more cheese on it when I reheat it...
    I don't like to put a lot of cheese on it when I freeze them..
    LOL I thought that one was use later on.. Silly me.. I just cut into the other one ...And I only had 3 slices total for the day ......Don loves HM pizza there is only a total of 6 slices left!! ya'll better hurry there isn't much left ...:eek1

    The image of a trike surprised me. I visited the IB website to see if three wheelers qualify for ride certification. Apparently, they do.

    Well my cattle was on walkabout for a week...
    A bit long for them ... I did walk last Sunday to check on them...
    And they where in 1 piece at the time...

    But I had a feeling why they were taking so long to get back home!!

    Well the cattle came home ... I saw them on the hill side this morning..
    This is why they took so long to come back home....
    They had to wait till the new born could toddle for 5 miles up and down the mountains!! Gosh I love my Longhorns!!!

    She is a Longhorn / Charolais cross... :eek1

    Yes it was nice to have a healthy baby after the stillborn last month...
    The family is really happy too..:wings They all look after her...
    Can you imagine how hard it must have been for them to push that baby up and down the mountains,traveling with a toddler..:lol3

    It's amazing how devastated they all where about the stillborn...

    Once again we have just increased the herd...The last baby was born today.
    And let me tell you it was a good day to be born.. 61* and sunny!!
    :clap
    Last night at feeding time I was looking at Lefty and said to HB .. I say with in 24 hours ... Well this morning late.. Lefty had her baby!! :clap

    No help from us .. I love Longhorns/Corrientes... They have small babies ...
    The way mother nature had intended them to do...:clap

    Lefty is a Corriente...So this baby is Corriente/Charolais cross..:eek1
    Yes our cattle are in good order..:D (good weight)

    She loves her baby!!

    [​IMG]

    Yes it looks all bent up still.. Well it's only an hour old...And still has to unfold..
    That takes a few days...

    [​IMG]

    You can see in an hours time of being forced through the birth canal.They are up..

    [​IMG]

    And know where and how food is served!!

    [​IMG]

    She will be the size of her mom one day!!! She's a cool colour ..
    A nice Mocha...Yuppers she's a good mom..

    [​IMG]

    . The herd, this evening all sniffed her and licked her ...
    It's really cool to watch them as a family unit...

    I even watched Tuco our Longhorn/Holstein (the Black cow) Clean the white calf the other day...I thought that's cool... After all she is also her Oldest sister.. For real.... See Tuco is/was Cisco's 2nd Calf that was born here on the farm.

    Yuppers they are one big happy family :clap

    And I did get my bike out today... Felt good to ride and such a grand day!! :ricky
