Well said,
I do stop at a friends shop (Dual Port Touring) and get to talk to fellow adventure riders, typically its........

"so where have you been?"

then a long discussion about the back roads and how we almost got lost.

This is opposed to stopping at the gas station in Tellico Plains where I fill up,
move to some spot away from the crowd,
have a cold drink,
and leave without much more than a disgusted look from the other people on bikes.
the best thing to buy for your bike is gas.....Neduro
Remote is not found on the coffee table
