If I ever ride with you then we'll hang out together at the back of the pack. I very rarely feel the need to ride WFO to get what I want from a motorcycle.

I've got a Foggy too and love it. I'll try a Pinock sometime, though....the foggy makes it kinda hard to take the lid on and off. It's a nice easy way to solve fogging issues though.

Marty rode with Ara and I last year... After a pretty nasty water crossing (ask DataDaddy to show you the shorts he wore the day he tried to get a picture of Mark going through it), Marty steps off of his bike, lets it fall to the ground and kicks the turn signal off of it! He then jumps on it and yells, "Take that Bee-otch!"

Well it was a rainy day, but that didn't stop our little ride. We planned on riding and having a good time and that is just what we did.....Seeing as how it was raining out we didn't want to get the GS's all dirty so we hopped on the Harley's and headed off.....
Notice all the cool Harley safety gear.....nothing but the best for this trip.....

So where to go on such a rainy day?????? Well how about an indoor shooting range. Of course nothing says ADV ride like some good old fashion shootin'.......


Of course there was a SMALL competion.....that I won,That is until Ole' Blondie over there got a little bent about the score. She looked at me with that killer look in her eye and asked, "Who won that round"........

She had that cold calculated killer look in her eye so of course I gave in and let her win the round. I know when I'm out gunned. So after that friendly little discussion I suggested that we sit back and watch the horse races on TV

Although the scenery was good the race was pretty boring. It seemed as if they were working so hard and getting nowhere. After watching a race or two we decided it was time to move on. So we stopped off and looked at some cool riding gear.......


After looking at those cool leathers we decided that the Harley's were a little to slow. So we hoped on the sport bikes and headed for the hills...

These bikes were FAST......I mean scare fast......

Of course our ace shooter over there has that completion gene in her, and just cant let a challenge go. Every time we stopped at a light she was challenging me to a race

Of course we all know my mad riding skills so I had to accept. After all we all know who leads the pack when we go riding. So after tearing up the hills we were getting a little hungry. we decided that we should ditch the bikes and hop in the sports car and head into town to get some food. So we hopped in and off we went....

Not that I advocate drinking and driving but when its a short ride, and such a friendly smile how can you say no...

So we wound up here.....

And that is when the fun started. The food was great and the booze.....Well lets just say that the booze was flowing free....

After a couple of those I was feeling like this......

Next thing I know it was....

That is when we decided that this is where it will end. So in true ADV rider spirit we ate and drank and had a great time. We started on the Harley's, went shooting, did a couple laps on the sport bikes, watched a horse race or two, had great food, A LOT of booze and called it a day.

Cant wait for the next ride.......

I was scared o' the rain, so I stayed home. I told 'em they were crazy as hell, but they wouldn't listen.
