Yeah, I can imagine. I hope you were able to get some of those soybeans harvested, you were probably working late with not being able to get started until so late.

We appreciate you coming out and bringing IT's bike, and we enjoyed riding with you. I think Aaron is really getting the hang of things. 35 MPH + on his 2nd ride out, he's really motoring along now. He did great in the twisties, too. After you left, we did the woods trail with the sharp 180 turn leading up the grade, then did the pond loop, and then did the real tight trail that you and I marked that comes out at the shed, along with the black dirt trail, and repeated the scrub trail, among others. I think the only ones he hasn't done are a couple of the woods trails below the pond with the little g-outs. We'll get him on those next time and I think he'll have done everything there with the exception of maybe the sand pit and drag strip.

Good riding with you again. Wish you could have stayed, but I know you gotta get in the fields while you can. It was a great day for it, sunny and breezy. We'll catch you again soon and get Rick's bike back as soon as we can get back down that way. In the meantime, I fear a well worn enduro loop may appear circling my house, it has already started.

Ouch! Various wounds, scars, bloody knuckles, and a vague feeling of sheepish ashamedness at the language I used in the process are not uncommon for me after a bout of tire changing. But a bloody lip and loose teeth ... I think you might have me beat.

Luckly, I didn't even have time to go "oh crap!", i heard a metallic thunk and tasted blood, and it took a few seconds to figure out what happened. My mouth still doesn't feel quite right... Then on top of that, my wife drags me out to get a xmas tree tonight and my foot's all jacked from kicking the crap outta the post.

When spoonin' and lubin',make sure "someone" is holding your tool tightly. You "CAN" put an eye out!

too clean

Man, did you photoshop a picture of your motorcycle into that landscape? It's too clean!!! I'm gonna push my junk out in the yard and let them get rained on so they won't look so bad

I would buy a used bike from this man...

Used bike

That was before the hills.

Rode a bit then did some hacking and slashing and making sparks for the old CT3.

Had to remake some of the exhaust. It was a little on the ugly side. Me feex.
