The week before Thanksgiving I met my friend, Marty, in Beeville for lunch. Marty still does a regular activity which involves reporting to a place per a schedule. I think most folks would say he has a job; consequently, he needed to use some vacation or lose it. Me, being a retired pensioner, or basically a bum, try to make myself available for when Marty needs to take vacation. This report is about our riding around Texas, and only Texas, since New Mexico and Arizona developed some weather which was too cold and wet for me at least. We both ride S10's. Mine being the rare sand color. Marty had mounted new tires and recently installed a Russell Day Long seat. I think he liked both.
