yeah, had to park somewhere! Did some other parking today also, two scheduled and one not so much...


Tag!


The New TAG, watch out for the ponies...


The third was a faceplant on the way home on I-695... turns out the rain they called for was more snow and ice and less rain. I'm fine, the bike's mostly fine, more details tomorrow.

Congrats on getting/placing the new tag, but what's this about 695???

I'll ride till there's ice on the road, but decided long ago that I just don't look good on crutches. Glad whoever was behind you ...

Nice job, BUT high price??? I really hope not. Take it from me:::Pain killers, crutches, canes and operations get fuc%ing old after a decade or so.

Nice new tag. I've been meaning to visit the Biting Kicking Ponies. Hmmmm

skierd, nice grab. I have a feeling the tag is going to sit 10 miles south of Ocean City for a while. In the other 9 months of the year, a nice place to camp on the beach.

Haha, and I thought I placed the longest sitting tag

I hope you and the bike are ok, sorry to hear about the unscheduled parking job...

That was the plan actually... had I brought my tarp or realized that I left it home before Walmart in Berlin closed... It was a pretty night on the beach actually, bright full moon out with the waves crashing softly in the background. But without the tarp, camping in the hammock would have been a little too damp and instead of spending the money on a hotel on NYE, I decided to try to make it home.

After sleeping a little bit, the only thing thats sore is a little friction burn on my left knee (not rash, more like a rug burn) and a sore, stiff left shoulder. Mainly sore at the end of its motion, if the shoulder doesn't feel better tomorrow I'm going to go to Patient First...

Skierd....

I just picked up a Warbonnet Blackbird DL 1.1 Hammock and tarp. I saw you got a Warbonnet also (Traveler?). Neato hammocks and can't wait to try mine.

Damn....Skierd. Sorry man. I'll keep my eyes open. could you post some particulars about the bike? I'm glad you walked away from the lowsides!

HEY all YOU FFs... Skierd's WR250 was stolen and we might be able to help. Keep an eye out for it.

I was tied up all week but did brave the cold to ride to work today. Unfortunately the tag will have to be there on Sunday for me to be able to go after it.

26 degrees is one thing, and 35 mph gusts is one thing.....adds up to 61 reasons not to do any distance riding for me..But I'm a 10th degree wuss.
