    I did a WTE at City Dogs on Cary. It was pretty good.


    That is only like 15 hours one way for you. You should go get it and stop in town to see your old buddy's here in VA on your way there and back. There are 48 hours in the weekend so that still leaves 18 hours for sleeping, eating and getting in trouble.

    Personally my weekend is already full.

    • Re-plaster and paint ceiling of bathroom, all the cracked finish coat finally came down Tuesday night. base coat is fine.
    • Buy a dining room table and chairs. The dresser and end table in there now won't do for Christmas dinner.
    • Buy couch, sofa etc so that there is seating when family comes to visit.
    • Move all the random things being stored in the living room and front room(see reference to Dresser and end table above).
    • Oh and leaves, lots of leaves.

    Well, is an RTE that is comprised of two people still an RTE? Or a date? :-)

    Only Blooch and I showed up. Good eats, BTW. And Mike, I have a semi-clean shirt for you. You will be attending next week's festivities? (Especially since you picked this one and bailed. LOL!)

    I notice you avoided the question. The graphics appear somewhat old school but it does look like a nice bike.

    The big GS is up on the lift getting set up for a new pair of Ohlins and a re-work of the electrical wires for my intercom, heated gear and accessories. As you can see its a mess. Wires everywhere. Why didn't I do this earlier.

    Jeff .... getting the tank off was as easy as four mounts, two wires and two gas line connectors. From here on it will be a 10 minute job. Once I got the tank off I was able to find the bolt I dropped into the tank last year. Thanks goodness for stainless steel bolts.

    When I pulled the battery out I discovered the negative terminal post was corroded and full of rust. I'm guessing its the reason the bike has been hard to start lately.

    This is what I get to do today ........
