We went from sun in the valley to a mild snow storm at
the summit. That put a little caution into the twisties.
That is such a great road! This impressed me that a
Buell could do a speed blur.

blur thing.

You will have to take my word on this, but in person
Skifast(the one with the hangover look) does not have that
"I got shot at and missed, shit at and hit" look in real life.

Well maybe a little.

That's my son Josh in red after two hot
chocolates. I asked him if he wanted better riding gear before we
left. "Nawww, I'm good" was all he said. He was riding his last total
job after the rebuild. James, well he's just happy to be here.

I don't know what the deal was, but we had our food and
were done eating before the other guys could mentally undress
the waitress. Maybe that's why we had such great service,
we're to old to even look anymore.

Stewart was ready fork in hand if the food ever came.

Oh don't forget the "Kiddie Table". What no crayons while they
wait for their breakfast???

I believe the subtle advsalute is directed at the cook.

My son had to be to work at 12:00 so we left early and
retraced Wolf Creek back home. Better weather on the way out.

Thanks for the ride gentlemen.

That does suck. I hate that kind of little surprise when money
could be so much better spent on something with two wheels
instead of something with a roof.

I hope youse fellas had a good ride................the pics made me envious.....

What?, no seismic strap! Not to code. Wait till you go to sell and
some inspector writes you up. That's the shit I deal with all day.
Bonus points for flex gas line though.


(Not to mention the electrical stuff going on to the right???)

Next ride.

Those straps are a bunch of bullshit. Wrap some metal strap around the water heater then screw it to a stud?? If your water heater is going to tip over I doubt a strap screwed to a 2 by 4 is going to stop it.
