    Some of us more than others. I don't know if we have inmates out near the epicenter, which is about a hundred or so miles from where VI and I are.
    I felt the first one, and without knowing where the epicenter was, thought it was about a 3, then found out it was a 6.2.
    Didn't even feel last night's which was a 6.9 with the same epicenter.
    May have scared my kids when I told them to make sure the tanks are full on their respective cars and to stash some water bottles.

    You don’t normally stand on a Harley, but the foot pegs would be the logical place to stand if you were so inclined ...

    Have had some things happen in life, that just turn me off to wanting to ride.

    Time is at an all time low, and I’m unable to ride and hang with the wife, which given my recent going ons, I’m starting to appreciate more.

    Pick up something more suited for 2. Or travel/trips. Maybe moto, maybe something else.

    Not a damn thing wrong with that. Having my wife along is why I’m shopping for a big touring bike.

    Man, I'm sorry to hear about this, but it would be great to ride with the wife. I get it. Please let us know what you end up getting. My wife can't ride with me due to back problems, I miss taking her with me.

    Funny you say that.

    Something like a Myers Manx dune buggy might fit the bill. Maybe a bigger bike.

    Truth is, I’m just plain busy. And this stuff is just sitting. I’m also one that enjoys the build equal to if not more than the ride.
