Sorry guys, I do not have enough desire to prove I'm a bad-ass to ride all day today on a naked bike, without heated gear. I'll have to catch you another time.

Have fun today, ride safely. Keep 'em upright. I'll buy a penalty round the next time we meet.

Besides, I might could use the time today to wash my GS. It is still covered in road muck from the Black Ice ride.

Wait a minute.... is that a K100 in your profile picture?

Nope, but close. It is a K75S. My first adventure bike. That pic was taken in Zagora, Morocco at the start of the cross-Sahara camel road to Timbuktu, Mali.

Wish I still had that bike. It was the sweetest and smoothest BMW, EVER.

I still have my '84 K100 and an '96 K1100RS.

Don't worry. I keep scratching my head wondering how come everyone else seems to have no issue getting days off during the week to go riding. All I can figure is they must have bosses that let them actually use their vacation time or let them take off to offset overtime. Just two more weeks and I'll be done with this project that keeps me staying late at work every Friday.

But, we're "rich," and one day we'll have the money.

I get 3 weeks plus 1 floating holiday and 1 personal day. Use or lose anything over 0 at the end of the year. I lost a week last year.

Or are self employed. Meaning "no work, no pay." But riding bikes is worth it.

I'm thinking of heading over to Ashland to loiter near the train tracks, anyone want to meet up?
Ducking out of the house in 5 mins, I'm going to park near the train station.
If you come out look for the green K brick, ill probably just be wandering around.

I work in Ashland, but I have no idea what you are up to. Maybe loitering has a negative connotation that I should try over looking and give this activity a try.

Still trying with the new iMac

Have not yet won the battle, but I'm gaining some tactical victories. Have posted the Black Ice Ride video to Youtube. Now I'll try to embed it here. Play it at the highest resolution your bandwidth can handle because it was recorded at 1080p.

I had to fast forward through all the talking. Also your camera needs to be angled up a bit more. I have a hard time getting it adjusted correct on my helmet too. Otherwise

Also, it didn't upload to youtube at 1080. It can be done. I think iMovie ends up converting it down in resolution when you use their youtube feature but I cannot remember as it has been a while since I've edited and posted a video to it.

Warble garble, just left. Got some cool photos of the trains though! Sorry I missed you. I live near the airport. If you want to kick it sometime let me know.
