I'm out for Friday. I've been up for 36hrs already and have work tonight. Its not going to make for a safe ride. I even had the 640 already loaded. I'm going to show up Saturday on the 950. I still have to be in Sacramento Saturday night. Ill upload a pix of the loaded 640 when I get to a computer. The blackberry isn't cutting it.

Attach pump to tire stem.

Sally cant ride his 250 on the street to Tahoe.

I take a dead battery and a shit flat tire as a sign I should not attempt Tahoe this time.

Myself and ShortFatSally are OUT.

I drove up from LA to Santa Cruz today to buy a new te 610. You guys have no idea how much it hurt to turn around and come back to LA rather than driving up to Reno. Tomorrow I have to work. I mean that doesn't seem right does it? A new Bike and I can't ride it? Who makes these stupid rules?

you guys have fun, wish I was gonna be there.

So far as I can see by the size of that tire, it looks like the BARBIE JEEP is out of comission, so just pull the BARBIE CORVETTE out and install the rack so you can put your little bike on the back and get your butt up here, you big SISSY!!!!!! Or ride the big bike here, its not that far sissy la la!!!!

That would be the tire to the trailer. And the tire on the big bike are street slicks and are already at the wear bars. C'mon now. Dead battery and a flat tire. You dont think someone was trying to tell me something? What are the chances?

In my haste last night I packed my phone and left it in the truck till this AM. What a lovely voicemail I had once I heard it at work.

Im here, at my desk, slamming my into the monitor.


THIS IS SUCH SHIT!

Meow, Meow , this is what happens when Zing and I start drinking early!!!! I know it was your trailer, Just giving you shit cause you PROMISED me fancy wine! No fancy wine in Tahoe, still waiting. Do you really own a bike? Zing says, he's seen you once, no bike, and you have bailed 3 tmes. Your shooting blanks!!! All kidding aside, Zing says riding was great, also went on the boat Cocktails on the porch, lovely dinner to be served. You still have time to make the BBQ tomorrow. Miss you, huggs and kisses, Mrstahoeacr and LIL Zing!
