I'll give you a goddam ride report

How about 10 miles round trip with one rest stop. Someone had to represent the chapter, and since Rabia got stuck nursemaiding that drunken sot Dizave she couldn't make it over here today to go see a friend of mines antique bike collection, so I just said fuck it and went here to get my bike washed, even though I spent 3 hours washing and waxing yesterday. You can all thank me later.

the things I have to suffer thru as chapter president are sometimes almost to much for one man to bear.

but fear not! I'm presidential material, thats why I'm the president and the rest of them aint.

but folks, lets be honest. the work is never done. I don't have the excuses a lot of these guys use. sometimes you have to just put your nose to the grindstone and focus on the task at hand, regardless of the cost in pain and sweat. you push on, you gut it out.

but its not all bad. personally I like the recruiting drives, when I get to meet with potential new chapter members and get to know them on a more personal level. hey bmwrider, bet you ain't got this on your smugmug.

but folks, Rome wasn't built in a day, and neither has this chapter been. its been built on hard work, and having the guts to step up to the plate and and face the 95 mph fastballs without flinching.

yes sir.

play ball.

but hey this is a ride report not some excuse to whine about why we can't ride right?

well the chapter president of the new england chapter of advrider took a little ride today, all of 10 miles, and it was hotter than hell, but, for the sake of the chapter, he did it.

whatta guy.

hey it was smug mug. the first run of pics of my bike were all low res 40K pics. but I bumped it up cos I knew in the hazy conditions the little nikon is sometimes a little blurry. but I fucked it up and bumped them up pretty big, to 200+K, but smugmug sizes them down automaticaly, which I really didn't know it did. duh. hey baldy why dont you tell us these things, you expect us to read directions? but anyway Vienna Calling was treated to a make over it'll not soon forget.
