    i'd noticed @Cogswell bike seemed to be sputtering every now and then

    and a couple of puffs of black smoke, then we stopped

    to check a few things

    he must have had ear plugs in, because he didn't hear all the jokes i made about owning one of those old pieces of junk

    including saying @knybanjo was proabley in tulsa before he noticed we weren't back there

    :lol3
    or maybe he was ignoring me :dunno


    put it all back together 7 we were off seemed to be running fine, he'd never took off any gear the rest of us had to resuit up


    see that black dot in the dip up there?

    [​IMG]


    that was mike tring to get it started again

    i pulled up beside him & looked over

    he was cranking on the starter switch

    & enjoyed to much saying turn the gas on :jack


    tru a full face helmet i could see the relief, then he gave me a sideways look and grin & was off


    :ricky


    zipping down the road, i'm thinking about a nap

    we ran into kevin coming back to see where we were

    at the pavement, kevin was going to hit some more roads similiar to where we'd been

    mike was going back to camp

    dan had bailed at the last stop, (street bike with ricky racer tires, i would have too)

    i considered a right and barborsa ....

    when we pulled out we knew where 2 were going the rest of us hadn't commited

    we crossed the bridge

    back at camp hanging out (thinking nap)

    @Voluhzia said he wanted to walk all the stores in town

    @pridemore1 and me said we didn't care about stores, but we could eat

    saken/ @Voluhzia tricked us because the next thing we knew we'd walked all the stores in town :lol3

    we found a place for lunch we sat out side and watched traffic go by


    [​IMG]


    we saw ms papalobster walking around and made cat calls:lol3


    then over to the brewery

    where kenny, pj, mike, rob and debbie were hanging out

    i've always said either they were really good or the only show in town & it could be both

    because the food was really good
