I might roll in, hit a couple of my usual loops and get to skedaddlin' by 10ish. At the very least I will meet up with everyone to say hey.

Damn, Joel.. .hope your buddy recovers quick

I take the TW to work every day also - 6.5 miles each way, in city traffic I'm getting about 105-110 miles out of the tank before it goes on reserve.

Been paying about 7 bucks to fill it up - I think every other week I fill up

it's a fun and economical bike, may not be a "macho" bike, but who really cares. small carbon footprint which matters for those who care.
