You should buy that Honda, especially if it is kick start only.

I recommend against that Gary, but if you do, don't use a BMW parachute. Remember those broken wrists? You can only ask your wife to do that once in a lifetime.

Nonsense.....once you leave the plane and pull...

...the cord and nothing happens......BMW will issue a recall on the the chute, set you an appointment three weeks out and then refuse your warranty claim and charge you $$$$ to fix a known issue seen with every other parachute they make, then it will open...um...just in...time?

Never mind, good luck!!

Yes yes Keith. I was mocking BMW owners. Sigh... Nevermind.

I keep thinking I am funny. I guess my looks is all I have.

Sunday sunny and 88 degrees!

I'm in! Little bikes best due to heavy rain forecast between now and Sunday?

Where to Gary, Herrrick? Back way to Moonshine?

I'm up for whatever

Eckerts!

I'm just a few miles away from Eckerts, man you gotta get the apple pie! They expanded their "country store" a couple of years ago and now it's like a mini Branson. They do have good peaches and apples though...

Today's Ride

I am a wimp. We did not ride through the closed part.



They have pie.





I bet she is saying to herself quit messing with that camera, let's ride.

Did...

you survive Gary?

Did you soil your dungarees?

Are we riding tomorrow? (if you did survive)

If not, RIP
