This morning I got out of my tent. The older guy camping across from me said. "I always wanted to do that but she would not let me."
I said she kicked me out years ago.

I get a lot of that with the tent, and bed roll strapped to the rear rack.

I do, all the time.

My "dririder" motorcycle jacket is great for winter sailing and my sailing bib and brace overalls are the most comfortable and waterproof riding over-pants I've ever owned. My summer motorcycle gloves are my winter sailing gloves.

My one piece "Mustang" cruiser suit has to be the most comfortable and waterproof piece of kit I have ever worn on the bike in cold wet weather.

I gave the old orange one away and got a yellow one. And cheap.....not approved at work anymore, they updated.

There are other fine Canadian "Mustang" brand jackets/pants and suits that are perfectly good for riding in cold wet weather. But I shop at the commercial fishermen's supply stores for a lot of other "oily" products that work well for motorcycles. Cheaper too without the "motorcycle" premium.

Tachometers work on marine engines as well as on motorcycles. In fact they also work on lawnmower engines.
Therefore it is entirely possible when entering a shop to be taken for the lawnmower.

Dad: Ummmm, no just out for a ride.

HD: Kinda hot.

Me: Me thinking under my breath; No shit, plus where are we gonna find dirt in the middle of Dallas.

Every now and then, I want to answer that question with a yes. It is an excellent opportunity to see darwinism at work, and I hate that my love for my motorcycles is impeding natural selection.

Last night headed home from work on the Enduro, stopped at a small podunk store. Young pretty girl parks beside me and hops out and says....... "Is that even a motorcycle? It looks like a big dirt bike."









And she happened to make this statement just as I am taking a sip of me Redbull. Needless to say I got a little in my nose.
