    I wish I could find a legal way to ride in the dirt the whole way in... that'd be fine.

    This time of year it's hard to find a road that's not mostly dirt.

    :nod

    True. Very sandy out. :rofl

    So nice to ride yesterday without having to plug in. Good times ahead. I'm getting grand ideas for rides now, all of which I shall likely ignore as we get into the season. :D

    Plans to commute to work in the next few days are squashed by too many places to be that are work related throughout the afternoons. Perhaps Thursday if the rain holds off.

    It happens more often than I care to admit.

    Yep, I ride to escape from work, not to get there and back. Plus, I have a company car, so its not so bad communting in a cage.

    I ride because I like it. I don't care too much about what is at the start and end of the ride.

    I have some jolly spiffing rides on the way home from work. I don't see how that is a downside.

    I must like riding more than some folk, I guess. :hmmmmm That must be it.

    Sometimes when I ride to work there is pie in the lunch room area. Always good when a ride to work also becomes a ride for pie.

    There is only PIE! in the lunchroom at my place if I bring it there.

    I suppose I might just as well say "There is never PIE! in the lunch area at work".

    One of the quiet perks of being a media outlet. Everyone wants free promotion so often we'll get 'freebies' shared with us. You just have to be here early as it goes pretty darn quick!

    Hey Klay, I was reading something on another fourm that the CB 500 series by Honda. Something about you need to have the dealer perform the 600 mile service or the warranty is revoked? :huh

    Hear anything about it? I thought it was strange.

    EDIT: looks like it's for the extended warranty only. Or maybe cars???

    I don't know that the situation with the Honda is any different from any other Jap motorcycle. I'm not sure yet if a valve check will be required at 600 miles with the 2014 CB-X. The Honda dealer at Belle Plain said they would skip the valve check.
