    I think that luggage rack just violated me.
    And, I hope nobody is upset waiting on thank-you's. It's been a busy year. Maybe I can get a bike ready for black friday and make a ride before the year is up.

    15 miles to the store - 3 hours. Totally reasonable. :-)

    Almost got done. It still needs splitting and with any luck it's somewhat burnable in spring (if I run out of seasoned wood). This better not to going to be a very cold winter.... :uhoh

    A lady that lives in the mountains, cuts her own wood with powered equipment, does her own home repairs, and does her own moto repairs. Oh and likes to get dirty. :raabia

    Got 150 miles over your way as well. Had a coffee at the store at 25/70 & 208. 19W is now a sand box thanks to the Yancey County DOT :(

    screw that - if I'd go by that, I wouldn't ride for a long long time :lol3

    Yancey is bad, and 197 turns into a sandbox - you can build castles on that road. That's why I appreciate heavy rains in the winter.

    Next weekend I have 6" snow in the forecast, that should be ton of fun on the trials bike :ricky

    Normally I would look at it that way. I have a project that will make me a little money. Due to a health problem that started late spring 2017, it has taken me over a year longer to complete than it should have. I've had to get serious on my ass. :jack
