No problem for me. But, now we know who is one of those criminals who likes the inside apex line. A guy like that would probably be known to exceed the speed limit too...

tag

sorry for the delay. just out enjoying the weather. Havent had the Bandit out for a fun ride in a long time. I took back roads to get here (literally Back Rd) and took a few wrong turns. anyway, here are the new pics








this road is named for the first Stars Wars film. actually chapter 4, but it was the first movie to come out. if you can cross the junction at 522 you just might survive to grab the duck. duck will be at the base of the sign

Yup. I had their chicken lunch special. Should have asked how it was cooked. I shouldn't be eating FRIED chicken. It was very good. Unfortunately no baked potatoes until 5pm. Also, they wouldn't accept my Mastercard to purchase the place, so its still for sale.

I did just under 300 miles today. Discovered some new roads as well

Judging by where you started from, passed thru and ended up I'd say you did have a great ride! Any of that on interstate or was it all two lane?

If I have the location right, you can see the shadow of the sign on Google Earth. It's just 150 yds north of Larry Omps' landing strip. I (nearly crash) landed there many years ago - it's short and with a major hill to the ESE.

The only interstate I took was on the way home from Hell Town.

That's even better! I assumed you worked your way back home via 7 or 50, and down.

I hit the WalMart there. Needed some fluids for the bikes. Were you on the Strom?? I don't believe I saw you. I only recall seeing Goldwings yesterday.

Well, if I turned off the LEDs, you would not have noticed my bike at all!
