I like your style dude, you roll with the punches. Wish we could have seen that gas rag go all metly-melty on the Yamaha fender. Seems the God's were always smiling on you in the end, even if it felt like the Devil was yanking your cord.

I could tell from the garage pictures that this was a man with passion and desire. Just did not realize how much. Lots. Even after all those woes he buys an orange Jeep!

Alright, I'll be honest. I just this second opened your RR, because the title sounded intriguing. I'm sorry for the problems that clearly arose, but that is quite a lead in to your story

I'm going to give you this: You never say die. Serious respect.

Also realize that I read this like a trainwreck. I could not avoid my eyes. I simply could not stop reading. I also can't wait for you to finish it.

PS - Get the DR.

One word for you, man- K L R

I think that's the only bike that can take all your misfortune and keep ticking. Gotta give it to you, just a thought of two full days of slabbing on a tiny Yamaha make my ass twitch. One look into your garage (I see you like crappy bicycles and Rotella) and I knew this was going to be interesting. More power to you, you did get around.
I am always at loss with all these crazy RR and rarely can get into them anymore but this one at least cracked me up good.
Oh and riding with an expired tag is hardly trifling bs up in northern lands, more like bread and butter offense for cops to give you a sizeable fine. So, if the good cop just wanted to bs with you for few minutes I would thank him and consider myself lucky, I can think of a lot worse scenarios and officers who would had really f'ed with you.

I don't know seems to me the XT faired pretty well despite his best attempts to turn it into a fire ball.

I never noticed you going to the Euro Bob.

There may be a Colorado Pass ride next year if you want to come. You'll need to bring your 950 so you can tow me back.

Enjoyed the report Mini. Planning to ride some of the western TAT this fall with my son, I'll be sure to warn him about strapping fuel soaked towels to the exhaust of his XT.
