    I was sick last weekend. Major headache, 102 fever, fatigue, cough. Imagine my relief when the doctor said "Strep Throat". I never had a sore throat. Doing much better now, thank you, but that just means I am back at work. Now I have a fencing project started on the south 40, and I am about halfway thru cleaning out the garage. The Vmax is up on the table. I hope to have the new turn signals and luggage rack installed today or tomorrow. Then I want to swap out the handlebar. We are doing Mother's Day this weekend because I was sick last weekend (kids couldn't come over) and she had to work. Oh yeah, I have to go meet a lady in a parking lot Saturday morning in order to buy some meat. I hope to ride again someday....

    I rode the old CRF450x around the back roads of Christiana today, about 50 miles. Would have made it to the tag at Old Abe Coal sign, but that was about twice as far as I was prepared to go...on pavement.

    Night shifts, enough said. Got the K75 out for a while but that’s about it.

    Nashcat said Paris, TN so I figured near Big Sandy Unit. Just not sure which of the sites this is, looks great.

    Looking at that photo, why do I get the feeling that there was ice cream involved somehow? :)

    New TAG...
    I let my Kurviger app pick a route for me today and found some new-to-me roads.
    I highly suggest Roarks Cove Rd if you like super twisty!

    Despite the abundance of Goldwings in the pictures, there was not a single Dairy Queen on the route. For anyone that likes a backroads ride through Henry and Stewart counties, I have attached a GPX file of the ride. It begins and ends in Buchanan at the campground, but feel free to edit the starting point. It does include 2 ferry crossings.

    I thought those new Wings came with a ice cream maker? :dunno

    I was told by a very good source that Dairy Queen locations are factory preset into the standard GW GPS.
