So we had planned on leaving right after work, say 7 pm AT THE LATEST...
...10pm the night before and this was the state of my KTM.
Needless to say I was up slightly late getting the bike ready; that combined with my boss trying to milk all of the last minute work out of me he could and we left DFW a few hours later than planned. No worries, we're young and full of piss and vinegar.
Sleeping inside your pillow case is a stroke of brilliance my friend
(i was just informed that it was not me who found the idea, but my buddy and I am a thief, sorry dave) stumbled upon a few years ago while on one of life's numerous road trips. It keeps the bright headlights (or sun depending on time of day) out of your face wonderfully while keeping the pillow from wondering away from your head as you squirm for comfort.
