@jdfog2 - Hey, thanks. I can’t add anything to what you said. Ernie and I spent the last two days kicking around old trips with me digging his heels to get back in the wind. One of the things I tried to impress on him was all the great people that have came into my life via motorcycles, especially those you meet traveling. He’s leaning towards a small caliber bike like the Janus until he can get his old shovelhead up and running. @Sal Pairadice - If you’re ever through Indiana you know what to do. You’re welcome to take it for a ride. She does have a nice ass and a lot of v-twin grunt down below. Fun, very much. @bobw - Thanks and good to run into you again here. You were one of the ADV’ers who made it to one of the last of our Memorial rides for Dad. As an outside observer to the good folks from Franklin you kind of get an understanding of how it became our second home. We need to cross paths again. BTW, if you’re ever headed to Indiana you know what to do. @Prior - Thanks for the call. We’re thinking of you and your updates always ways leave me grinning. Soon we ride again. Ernie and I kicked off a new tradition this weekend. Both of our dad’s were Navy veterans. I planted my flagpole when I returned home from Dad’s crash. Ernie’s dad used to fly his ship’s dock flag over Memorial Day weekend. So we hoisted his dad’s flag with our American flag today. His dad’s flag had not been raised since he passed 10 years ago. The wind had them rippling with pride, steaks are on the grille. Blessed Memorial Day to all of you. Never forget.
