The boxer got hot quick in traffic so I pulled over to cool off and wait. Then I looked at the grassy hill and saw a frontage road and thought to my self....hey self- you can just ride over that little hill and take the backroads home. So the bike cooled off and I fired it up and went two feet off Highway 44 and the dry grass was so slippery that....well, never mind what may or may not have happened.

    Regardless I am sitting on the side of Route 66 enjoying the afternoon and telling everyone that asks, “I’m fine”.

    how cool- a guy just threw me a bottle of water!!! WooHoo!!!

    Got in a short 2 hour ride today around fenton, high ridge , valley park area. Lots of small side roads, some old favorites, new ones. Valleys and hollers are still cold and wet. Ridges were nice and dry, perfect riding.

    I never heard of De Soto but this tank was on some small road around Iberia or Dixon sitting in front of a VFW hall.

    Hahaha- we think alike. I was thinking of the Rally the entire time I was sitting there.
    Remember- I'm fast, but I ain't no BigDog!!!

Ran perfect after I tweaked the carbs a 1/4 turn. Not bad for a $100 BMW project built from leftover parts and a few orders from Amazon.

    BigDig- I’m guessing you’re the one wearing the Ankle Monitor.
    All these years and I never knew you were a member of “Alabama”. Was this the reunion tour??? :D

    I wanted to warn folks in the Texas area. This guy is WANTED....armed and dangerous and posing as someone.... and I quote... “NOT on vacation”. I’ve seen a vacation before and this is what it looked like to me but you all can decide for yourselves. 4C341B34-8042-413E-BE6A-ED39EC98B413.jpeg
