    another good idea came to mind

    so ..........i passed sasquatch on his way to the beach

    as i was coming into cleveland i saw what looked like a busted bale of hay on the yellow line so i thought i kick it as i went by and watch hay go every where

    turns out it was a bunch of hay stuck to some concrete :fpalm

    twist my angle that had almost healed from twisting it out west:baldy


    what a dumbass :lol3 im lucky my foot didn't hit me in the back of the head

    i did stop at gun commander and heard some over weight goofy guy with a goatee (you know like me)

    wanting to buy bullets and how much he loved shooting

    told them he had a 270

    they asked him 270 or 270 short mag

    he said he wasn't sure, they told him well he needed to get the right bullets

    he said i've got some in the car i'll go look

    they said well don't bring the bullets in surrounded by a gun :lol3


    he went out, came back in and said oh it's a 300:eek2


    :loco

    friday night i rolled bikes around got the indian so that it was the easy one to get out, wiped the 2" of dust off it


    mid morning saturday robin climbs on we're rolling up the dry i notice its wobbly and the dash shows both tires are low

    we uturn at the end of the drive, in the garage i air up the tires and we try again

    going up the drive i realize this dang indian is just like every other bike i've owned

    they handle better with air in the tires :lol3

    we brunch, make a lap around the square snap some job pic's

    at a red light young gals singing and dancing in their car, more pic's

    home, i mess around the house then back on i'm meeting william at mall of ga indian

    less than a mile from home i see he's calling, i pull over call him back and he says its falling a flood where he's at

    we cancel

    then i decide to go on

    pic of a dog chasing me, some times i wonder how confused a dog would be if i stopped :lol3



    i stop again and take a pic and camera tells me chip is locked


    :dohso i haven't took a pic all day

    opps. ok thats fixed


    im here looking at radar and change my mind again

    [​IMG]



    william texts me says he went across the street from where he 'd pulled over and feels like he stepped out of the lake


    i change my mind again and just ride around


    this old boy wasn't chasing nothing
