On another note... I am getting better at changing tires. 2 tires and 1 installed on bike in 35 min.

Mine went up 32%, ouch.. Is this likely because of the helmet law?

I'm with progressive.

If anyone has any different thoughts feel free to post and we will come up with something concrete. I look forward to it!
Anyone going to meet up at Right Brain Brewery in TC today? I will go have a beer regardless but look forward to meeting anyone that wants to show!

Wish I could. Work keeps getting in the way of my fun. But I do love my job.

I make the drinking water for the City.

Water fascinates me. This job also give me allot of freedom, I get to do things my way when I am not on the day shift because I am the only one there, no questions asked as long as I get the job done effectively.

Unfortunately, at the shop all day. Had to take a Honda CB900 for a test ride though as the customer is picking it up next week. After about an hour, I decided it was running good enough to return to the customer.
Dirty part of the job, but someone has to do it.

They think this is their holiday today....but I plan to go out by Fluorite Ridge and chase jack rabbits around on the new bike on some 2 track today. They need their workout during the day too since Wiley is holed up taking a break during the day. Hot down here, so time to put the enduro jkt away and get out the jersey now. Loving the new KTM.

Go ahead and keep rubbing it in...Its nice here in San Antonio but it don't matter because I'm bikeless....I did get to ride around on some gravel roads in the boonies on the Polaris quad yesterday. Yippi
