    Don't write off a contracting gig, Q, I'm so glad I left the G in '17 after securing a minimal pension, lots more money out there.

    That was a hard riding trip....... almost twice as hard as the CDR.

    Glad I road it with you.

    YRB-30 fresh from her dry docking overhaul. Looking good for over 70 years old. My peeps solicited, negotiated, and awarded the $6M contract for that. Your tax dollars at work.

    Three strangers meet up for a ride in Japan. Middle guy was Japanese but spoke good English. He led the parade.

    I dog anything military looking. I bailed after our late lunch. I still had 3 hours to get home and that was using the faster toll roads. Good day for a ride.

    Good luck with the career decisions. I myself am. Writing this from a waterfront cottage on Lake Michigan that were renting for the week. This after being home in Ann Arbor for two weeks following six weeks in Mexico. Then I. Two. Ore weeks the wife and I are goi g to Paris and Barcelona for two more weeks. She's coming back and I'm staying on for ANOTHER week to rent a GS 1200 and ride around the Pyrenees.

    The thing people say is true... Now that I'm retired I have no idea where I got all that time to work!

    Here's the view from my seat on the cottage porch.

    I saw that same kubelwagon at Biker Bento last weekend, so I must have passed you in the area. IMG_1004.JPG
    Also saw the opposition nearby

    Easy peasy buying the ticket. About 4700 yen for the car and two passengers.
