    Got a new guy here. He signed up today....@BenAround. He followed me to make a new tag, he tagged it, so we did a little more riding so he could could put one up. Invited him to the RTE in Tulia, but he was under the weather. Everybody welcome him.

    question, do any of you Lubbock folk have a cordless impact gun that I might be able to borrow for a quick second? I need to loosen the crank nut on my bike so that I can fix the sprague clutch.

    would you be willing to have me swing by and use it to loosen it? Should literally take a second.

    Went to OK and participated in Zombie Apocalypse Training Camp. I competed in all events. Mostly poorly, but had a blast. And wasn’t last.
    The cow shit on my duct taped on number/armor pretty much sums up the experience.

    It felt so good to be wrecking in the dirt again.

    You were out of practice. Sore is okay, you will get better. Glad you had no new injuries, or aggravated the old ones.

    I have discovered that I will be buying accessories and upgrades for this bike forever.....It's my new obsession. Taller windshield ordered today. Battery tender and Bluetooth audio system will be in tomorrow.

    I was cured of too much of that...after getting my stolen bike back.
    Paint, krylon, everywhere.....
    Now I do maintenance and ride the damn thing.
    That is the reason I own a motorcycle.

    Although I did strip and repaint some of it....the rest will either wear off, fade, or somehow disappear during maintenance.

    aw Michael, what's a few cases of Krylon between friends? (the fumes aren't nearly as nice as they used to be)

    It was hideous but helped catch the their

    Left their fingerprints on the tank..6 perfect impressions.

    Also [garnered] garaged @whatthehellautocorrect? up the tank fuel cap lock, so bad that when it ran out of gas on them, they abandoned the bike.
