I was just noticing on my picture that it says Pinview GA right on the Caboose, so I was wondering why I had to search to find out where it was. Nice Photoshop, I didn't even notice there was supposed to be something there in your pic.

Hmmmm.........

I was past this very place,.... the abandoned Dismuke warehouse when I went to Georgetown, GA to grab a Grand Tour of GA location,..... and thought to myself, that would make a great tag. You beat me to it.,... now to get there.

It's a haul from the coast but I could take Hwy 82 out of Waycross and just run and gun and forget sleep,..... how strong is my resolve?

I felt like I was swimming there for awhile. I couldn't put my visor down because it kept fogging and I couldn't see. Luckily my riding glasses have a seal around them and it kept most of the water out of my eyes.

I need to get my face shield rain and fogged proofed.

i "almost" thought i was gonna go grab it after work yesterday... but a longer than expected doctor visit along with a later arrival at the house coupled with the late evening t-storms put a stop to it. oh well.

we'll see what happens wednesday. i have to take my Jeep to see if i can get the exhaust massaged to stop an exhaust leak before our vacation trip.


i did however show my wife 1/4 of the fun of tagging, which was searching it out. she seemed interested, but she isnt a long distance rider (yet) and i still have to get the bugs worked out of her GZ250.

When I started riding again, my wife decided she would get here license as well. Then a friend of hers told here that she learned to ride on a GZ250 and that is what she wanted. So we got her one. On her first solo ride as she pulled back in the yard, she somehow lost control and laid the bike down. She was goign slow and I am not sure what happned as I didin;t see it. Didn't hurt the bike but she broke her toe. She has not ridin it since. By the time her toe healed up she had to get neck surgery. I am trying to get here to decide what to do with the bike. It's a 2003 and only has 520 miles on it. Maybe she will ride it again, but I doubt it.

well. the GZ is a great bike to learn on. some of us just find out in unfortunate ways how fragile we are... or we "get lucky" and hit that "sweet spot" for an injury.

Lori does love to ride. She hasn't been able to get on the bike at all, really since getting pregnant with our little boy (2.5 now). She rode once or twice before finding she was pregnant with out little girl.... then we made it a point to have a "final ride" before i stored the bike. Somehow, i failed to get all the fuel out of the carb and it still gummed up.

still trying to get it running right. i get fluid to flow through every port, but its got a massive lean-spot at about 1500-2000 rpm. anyway. thats a continuing problem for another forum....
