I just checked the weather and I may even ride with you guys Saturday----unless Mike needs my bike because he blew a fork seal last evening---but, then again,he has been awful hard on things so maybe he just needs to get that taken care of
By the way, the cabinets are in and they are bringing some of them Friday--I am so excited!!

It was a good day with good friends.Riding was good,naw, GREAT!
The bike took a little beating today,but I really don't think she minds


After getting back to the ranch,Kay fixed up a great meal of
pork chops,home canned corn,spicy rice, and a great salad.
What a great day. Will be posting up the Fling in a couple of days.


Mike
Aw, c'mon MudPuppy. You did a great job of eatin' it today. Those TKC80's didn't help you much. Just remember to keep the front and rear tires in the same rut.

I love that water crossing. And BTW - my feet were dry at the end of the day!

Made it home safe and sound after cropping Jason off at his place. I was thinking about heading into the office for a few hours tomorrow, but after the strange noises we heard coming from the Explorer, I think I will be changing brake pads tomorrow, instead.

See you in a few weeks. Betcha you have a wait list for the 'Fling!

Dave

Had a great time riding yesterday. WV definitly has some great roads and scenery.


Here's Mike showing us how soft the red clay is to lay in.


You got something on your back.


I had a great day of riding. It's been a long time since I've but in that much time in the seat and it was a blast!!

You lucky dog. Sounds like fun. To bad I gotta work. I actually thought about heading that way on Saturday. Either the Gandy or over on the upper Shavers. They just dumped mega amounts of trout in the river Still may but they are calling for all kinds of rain over there and the water would probally be up to much to fish.

Yep a great ride. Here are a few more pics from today. Somethings up with my photobucket or there would be more. It's making some of them avatar size no matter what.













Real good time. Now I gotta find out what the problem is with my bike. Took about 45 mins. to get from the Certified to home. Misses real bad when under a load and tac. and all things electrical fliker. Idol's fine though.
That will have to wait until tomorrow however.
