    Merry Christmas to you and Robin, Mark! You can help me start truck shoppin' after the first of the year. If it involves as much drinkin' as it took to buy Robin's car--we may be at it for MONTHS!

    i've read this several times :confused


    & ponder :hmmmmm


    thought about back when i had a 2stroke elsnore and riding it form hayesville nc to andrews for work

    then trips from durham back to purple hazeville on the /5


    :scratch


    charts, graphs and maps :jjen



    a trip to the beach on a /2 with my brother when one cyclinder went out & we rode it on home anyway (dumbasses)


    2 different years with no other vehicle besides the /5

    when wifey moved in i didn't have a car or truck


    :hmmmmm


    thoughts of having a metal milkcrate bungied on the back of the /5 with my tool bag in it

    working all over the ATL

    :scratch

    one morning i'm riding in & i hear ding.........ding..............ding

    i look back and the milk crate is hanging on by one bungie and bouncing off the ground

    i stop and fix that walk back using a zippo lighter and find most of my tools

    too bad one of the nails had punched my tire when i came back

    chain it to a pole

    find a pay phone wifey (gf at the time) comes gets me

    fix it that night after work, cop stopped by and was sorta pissed wanting to know why we couldn't do this in the day time


    emmm, how many miles


    years before that i was coming back from helen to hayesville on ladies night

    i stopped at the bottom of the mt, and pulled on some gloves and the bike died

    i pulled the headlight apart tring to get it fixed

    put it back together

    chained it to a pole, slept beside it

    the next morning i thumbed to work

    called dad, he went and got it, when he got it home and started to try to figure out what was wrong.

    he noticed the battery cable was loose

    ( i told ya'll i was a dumbass)

    ^^^truth be told ain't much changed :lol3


    opps, back to how many miles have i rode..............

    and i ponder :dunno


    maps and formulas

    as i pondered this today

    rained out this morning not so bad this afternoon

    i decided a little ride on the /5 might help

    when the bastard didn't want to crank & a bump on the chrome slug fired it right up

    i decided to ride the slug


    we rode by dead people thinking about the past and miles
