In other news, my new boots arrived via UPS. BMW Allround. They're still a bit stiff, but I'm confident they'll break in, given all the positive reviews I found online.

I've also purchased a Sena Bluetooth headset, mostly to listen to music and podcasts on the bike, but it also allows for bike-to-bike communication with any of you other bastards who might have a Sena. Burt and I tried it out briefly on the ride back home and to say I was very pleased is an understatement. It almost makes me want to ride with other people.

And finally, I'm looking at taking a brewery tour hopefully beginning July 29 (depending on my work schedule). I'll be riding up around the St. Louis area and back taking about four days. If you can join me for part of the ride, let me know.

Which Sena did you get?

SMH-5FM

I don't care anything about the FM radio, but it's got almost the Bluetooth range of the 10-series at less cost. I got it from Rocket Moto with advrider discount. $140 to my door including upgraded speakers. So far I like it, though the volume could be a little louder. With earplugs at highway speed, the music is a little hard to hear.

Lunch ride

The Sunday lunch ride to Savannah went well. I only got rained on a few times and the the Toll House burger was good. We'll do it again one day.

There is a retired ADV'er flying in to Memphis Wednesday week (buying my WR) who is going to ride all or some of the Trans Arkansas Trail on his way back to South Dakota. If you're looking for rides, I can put him in touch with you, seriorasi?

Hi Dan, Thanks for the offer but I'm doing the MRT on the East side into Northern Illinois and picking up the TWAT in Southern WI. Grew up with a bud who owns a motorcycle shop on the TWAT in Glen Haven, WI . We'll ride it until the PIG gets out of hand...

BTW: Thanks for the GPX routes Jamie!

Postponed

The TWAT ride is postponed due to electrical problems on one of the bikes we planned to use. I'll be available for dinner tonight or tomorrow night if anyone else is going.

I suggest Cafe Fontana in Cordova.

It has gotten pretty popular so if folks will let me know if they are coming, I'll make sure they have room for us to sit together.

I'll be there, but it will be closer to 6:45 since it's on the other side of the Memphis continental divide.
