Burger and Beer tonight? I will be down there around 6PM. Mostly likely I will be coming from work and will be driving the cage. Hope to see you all there.

Ranjan, can you do a pit stop before heading south for a long ride in the rain?

Made it home in one very-soggy piece.

Kinda funny.

I'd been on the first blinking stage of the fuel level warning (.8 gallons left) when rolling down 405 right by the old Wilburton tunnel work.

Thought I was running out of gas since the bike acted like my older petcock-equipped bike needed to be flipped into reserve. Realized I was on the Strom and that I had FI and I was spinning up the rear tire at steady throttle.

Not exactly warm fuzzy feeling at 55mph in a spray fog while being tailgated.

True 'nuf. On vacation this week and thus eating my own cooking.

I'm hoping to make it this week, but I have a teacher conference with my son's teacher Thursday nite.

If the weather's good, I'm going to ride on up for a brew and hushpuppies anyway. Probably get there about 7:30.

That of course assumes the shop gets done with the bike by Thursday afternoon too.
