Found this motorcycle ergonomics "calculator". It gives stock ergos of your bike then you input height, bar and seat adjustments etc.

Yep, yep...Some pics of the day...this crossing exists and goes through across the Colorado

This could get real tricky with 8-10 inches more water

Several ways out to challenge you too I ran my GoPro..not sure if I can load tonight cause internet here is so SLOOOOWWW

Another view of the Colorado further south...

The bikes....

Remember this morning when I mentioned flats...I got screwed

Teach me to open my mouth Another great day to ride

Well bad news...a certain rider needs to learn his GoPro commands I somehow manage to put my camera in a frame every 3 second mode instead of video Got some more stills though...

The road out...

Whats wrong with this picture

Campers...this happens when the tire slips off the center hump
Tourance EXP is probably not the best tire for these adventures

So week two of traveling on my employer's dime ( or these days credit card) has commenced. I'd rather be in God Knows Where Tejas on a motorcycle but fortunately amazing Chilli Rellanos can be had in Corsicana.

The good thing about this one is two bolts and one electric plug and the bike is ready to solo.

What can I say but that I love the building also. just need to find a lite weight swingarm and shock.
