The forecast. They missed it.

Hands were straight up toasty this time. Problem solved. I ended up having to turn the 1150's grip heaters DOWN.

But I actually saw another bike on the road this morning. A silver standard(?) of some sort. I see him a lot going the opposite direction on 67 between Keene and Alvarado.

Anyways I have the Stop and Go mushroom plug kit and the Slime strips with rubber cement.
Which one ya think I should go with. Tempted to try the mushrooms since that's what I carry on the bike....
I will only plug a tire on the side of the road, but when I get home I'll pull the plug and patch it using Xtra Seal Patches. I've found they work the best for me after using them in our tire shop for several years. They are easy to pull through the hole in the tire with a pair of pliers.

Sweet !! I had a ball! We had to stay close because TXjames is milking the last $5.25 out of his rear tire.

But TXjames , WacoDirtryder, the lawnguy81 (for the first half ) and I stomped on the terra. For those who have never seen an airhead all sideways piloted by a fella who has been doing it a long time , give yourself a treat and ride with Joe. He will amaze you on a gravel/dirt road.

We hit the big water crossings nearest to us and several old favorites before the nephew decided we needed to ride the railroad road . It is a nasty piece of work on a big bike. I have done it twice on Big Ugly and twice on KilLeR . Waaaaay easier on KilLeR. Better still when I had her geared down to "tractor".

KilLeR and I did fine on the up and downhill gnarlys but she and I hated the mile or more long foot deep large loose rock chips. My oh my. We did not like that. (James went back looking for me. I was fine . Just s l o w.) Like sand, the only way to make any progress was to stay on the throttle or the front became a uncontrollable plow. I lost momentum twice and it was a bitch. Finally found a speed that didn't scare the shit outta me but kept the plow effect to a minimum. Never in any real danger of falling, just a bitch.

I'll show y'all where it is. lol

I'll try to be there, if I get new plugs to stop the popping. If not the LC.

Only rode 120 miles today.

Did you tank up at the Texaco at Hamilton Pool rd. and 12 around 11am? I saw a black bike pull in as I was finishing up with the car, but the rider hadn't removed their helmet and the women were ready to go.

I'm heading down to Lone Star to fix a computer then home to put up yard decorations, which means raking leaves and moving. Oh boy. Have fun out riding.
