And I just happen to already have a Land Yacht.....1977 Buick Electra 225 LTD....2dr, Landau top, sleeps three in the trunk, and a back seat built for conception.

SO when I do get old, like the old goat, I'm also set to drive like I'm the only one on the road......drive 20mph in a 55mph no pass zone, never use a blinker, doze off thru a couple of green lights........

Hell. I already do that. I fell asleep on I-35 between San Antonio and Dallas just yesterday. A big boom woke me up.

Haha! I think its the small bike and speed thing. When i had the Wee strom it was no issue. My sister has buick and drives kind of loopy. I think it just comes with the territory. Hell i hope i get old and still ride! Don't want to be the old Harley dudes at work. I cant rag on them to much. One dude has 140k on his ultra. At 28..i have some years to go.

Anybody want to organize an alley sweeper in GR? That Portland ride looks like a lot of fun.

500 more miles yesterday and the Ninja has been turned over to the boy.

I'm in a plane ready to leave for Cincinnati now, nervous for the first time in all those miles. I hate flying.

Of course you took the route that I recommended? We need gator pictures for proof of passage.

Anyone that can ride through Atlanta on a bike should never be nervous about anything else. Life is smooth cruising after that.

I didn't take the fun route you PM'd me, sadly. I had 500 miles to ride and a Funeral to attend so I chose to take the highway.

I did take the bypass around Atlanta though and that was very helpful, thanks!

Sadly, and thanks. However, I'll take a 55 degree sunny West Michigan evening over a 90 degree, humid day in Miami anyday.
