    i rode around hoping to get something to eat

    i waited in line at subway for about 10 minutes, when i heard the gal tell some one by ordering something it would add 5 minutes to her order

    i thought wtf nothing at subway takes that long

    i gave up & went to the store next door

    [​IMG]



    i looked towards sweetwater and then towards topocco

    sweetwater looked darkest

    good choice 2 or 3 miles later i came outta the weather and into sunny skys

    by the river

    the roads weren't even wet

    i pasted the lodge and thought about taking yellow creek, but decided to keep going to the dragon

    i thought i took some pic's at the fugitive dam, but turned out my camera was dead

    i hung out at the dragon store, store was closed but i bumed an outlet for my camera from a gal staying in one of the rooms

    I've been wanting something this size

    the guy on the klr showed me the parts he'd replaced on this trip

    the husky guy had alkinds of add ones and was adjusting this and that the whole time they were there

    the dude on stock dr just gassed up and played with his phone


    so if I was gonna buy today, i'd proabley get a dr:lol3

    so I've had the 11fitiy 2 or 3 years now, we're standing there talking and dad rubs the saddle bag where the tie down loop is missing

    & says he remembered taking that off to make it more comfortable for the passenger

    [​IMG]

    he said open the bag


    :doh there it is in the corner
