This evening there will be a "Ride In" Car and Motorcycle show at the First Church of the Nazarene on Port Republic and Boyers Rd. I went last year - some neat classics and the typical assortment of muscle

Just throwing this out in case there is any interest from you FF...or you FF's bosses (*ahem*Mike*ahem*)

I've got a PCIIIUSB Power Commander for a V-strom 1000 for sale.
Also have the DL1000/TL1000R/TL1000S Haynes Manual for sale.

Also have the knobbiest 19" DOT-tire you've ever seen. It's only got 15 miles on it, max. Note: It does NOT fit on a V-strom front without rim-locks. Trust me on that one.

And I've still got that BRAND SPANKIN' NEW Pirelli 19" Sport Demon tire for the V-strom/GS front. Still wrapped in the stickers, never opened. All the local bike shops here will mount tires for you even if you bring them in from other places, in case that worries you...

The MCE Karoo has been sold.

Going to put the PC3 and book up on ebay unless people are interested.
I don't have set prices for any of this.
Make me an offer.
....
Please.
...
Rent's due tomorrow.

Didn't much care for the feeling on 81, so spent most of the time on back roads.

Got bruced on the tag, but found this guy slowly crossing the road. I helped him across.

Took Coal rd to 11. Lots of pretty intense looking side roads coming off Coal Rd. I was surprised...usually, I'm used to seeing every side road off a road like that either gated or tank-trapped. A lot of these seem to be open. I will have to go back there sometime and check them out.

Some of the side roads have a tree on either side with a red band painted on them. What does that mean?

Coming home, taking small roads, I decided to uphold the good name of the Cat Herders and buzzed Gimmeslack's house, checking out the work on the shed as I went by. Looking good!

A bit past his house I found yet another turtle crossing the road--funny, I haven't seen any in a few years, and now I see two in the same day.
