    I saw a yellow GS followed by a red Eye-talian naked bike on my way back from Castell.

    In other news, I ran from Speegleville to Llano using the Purmela Adamsville Lometa route. Something less than 1:45 minutes. With a gas stop in Gatesville. lol

    It was FUN.

    Burn season starts early. Hope the fire by Mother Neff does not put us on burn ban. I might be hard to reach if this fire continues to build :eek1

    This one had another behind it that looked copper? Both had hard luggage IIRC.

    Same bunch. The eye-talian bike had serious front brakes and copper colored forks and a funky headlight. Maybe a MV Augusta Brutale?

    When I saw them they looked like they knew what they were doing. Nice spacing between the bikes. Decent pace. Of course, I was riding like an idiot at the time. ;)

    Same here. They were moving at a pretty good clip that prevented me from passing the cage I was trying to get around.

    The giant pumpkin received a big wave from them.

    Well after nearly losing my truck in the fire yesterday, I am back at work today...Did y'all know that 2008 Ford F550s have a oil sensor that likes to go. Truck has oil and No mechanical reason for truck to run other than this sensors tells computer to shut down:deal I had just got our truck positioned to intercept the head of the fire when a message comes up on the dash saying "low oil pressure, stop safely now"...the truck turns immediatley:huh did I mention I have a 15-20 high wall of fire headed in my direction:eek1 truck would not turn over at all. I had to call for help and luckily got 2 trucks to me right before the fire. My pump motor is separate so I was able to protect the truck while the 2 brush trucks knocked down the head of the fire. I was then towed by a brush truck out through the fire back to command. Literally, took an easy operation and made a fubar out of it due to computer lockout on ignition...seriously..on a fire truck...I was told what was wrong by one of the firemen from another Ford F550 like ours and I soon learned EVERY Ford 550 truck in county has had this issue!!!! WTF..A truck sold to be a fire truck that shuts down due to faulty sensors!!! The truck has 9,380 miles on it! This is the second time our truck has done this..Rant OFF!!!!
