    it poured and i thought i'd gotten a pic but i guess not



    oh wait let me back up a bit (again)

    as i'm riding around back roads making my way north, old blu coughs and sputters

    i'm thinking i'd put nonethonal gas in it when i got it home, flip it to resverve

    open the lid while i'm riding along and it looks emtpy as best i can tell at 50 mph


    i head towards and intercetion hoping for gas, nope no store

    turn around or keep going :hmmmmm

    i keep going

    cough sputter, cough sputter

    die get it started back up

    same thing then about here it gave up

    [​IMG]



    at that light up there i know theres a store, now it's a matter of push or walk get gas and walk back


    ( i took these pic's on the way back)


    i push, nothing like pushing a bike up hill


    then i get to the store

    no pumps :baldy


    [​IMG]


    checked the tank there was some gas

    so i pull the bowls & the gas looks redish, a color i've never seen gas look like dump the bowls


    fires right up, :rayof

    now back to where we were

    after we'd all ate, drank, packed and loaded the van

    we went our seprate ways


    on the way home my tunes were only playing in one ear so it was time for some high quailty new ear buds


    [​IMG]


    then rolling down 985, cough and sputter again

    drained the bowls again and i was off

    last night i was leaning towards a bike night at the american legion

    but it was raining, then it started to quit right when i got to the driveway


    so away i went


    they've moved to a new location i'd never been to, so i was looking forward to it

    plus it was close to where i'd worked on the sugar hill water treatment plant years ago

    as i passed that drive thinking i'll have to check it out


    in the rain by the way

    [​IMG]



    turned out they'd tore down the watertreatment plant and build the vfw

    [​IMG]



    that was a big surprise to me

    we stopped off at a marina where they were having last call

    listening to a gay guy that was telling how the bartender waxes him


    well, ok

    actually he was pretty funny

    then out on the dock, same dude and 2 gals that live beside him & the chick on the back of my bike had a nipple showing contest


    i was the only one there with out my boob out

    but as i enjoyed the veiw i felt like i'd won the contest :D


    dropped her off safely with her friends, who thanked me a couple of times for bringing her back:lol3



    got home way past my bedtime, and once again hated my alarm clock this morning :beer
