Departed my lair at 0645 hrs local -6C outside. Linked up with friend on his frakenbuilt 650 Versys Adventure machine, rode 200km's to dealer for first service on 2013 800GS. Barely made it dodging ice and deer. Rewarded ourselves with victorious bacon and eggs meal served by a rather nice Czech model, purchased new riding jacket, picked up lu lu lemon pants for wife, had an altercation at a gas station which resulted in a jab to the face, raced an R6 two up and won, had a beer on a patio, buried new bike in mud, returned home smoke a cuban and had a pint. sitrep ends.
