That is funny as hell. Means he couldn't get the front end up as easy as he thought.

Thanks.

I had good luck with the 244's and folded the footpegs of a couple surprise NWA corners on pavement.

If you want a rear tire that'll pucker yer ass nice and tight (watch out, Doc's droolin') on pavement I'd suggest the Kinda knobbie (forget the model)! Get the bike layed over on a tight sweeper and the rear end would just get a mind all it's own kinda like one of those long ladder fire trucks with rear steering. It never let go, but the rear wern't anywhere's near the front tires track

You think you had it rough. When you guys were playing football, I was getting high, drunk, and fucking the shit out of the high school girls basketball point guard. It was hell man.

My point? Many SEC college towns live and breathe only for their more-often-than-not "crappy" football, start the season with big talk, then stop going to the college games once they lose a couple. Then these SEC locals ignore their own kids' school. Starkville, Auburn, Oxford, Gainesville, all have the same deal. It's not snobby-ness (Bentonville and Benton take it there, and always fill their stands), its the whiny SEC football fans. If they don't win the National Championship it's cry cry cry.
It's why I can't don't care AT ALL about Hog football. At games (or in bars) you are surrounded by whiners.

Hey Gus, at my HS I played (both ways) on a cinder field, and played in snow so deep you could hardly run. We had the same hill-both-ways too. I never whined a bit (< that part's untrue).

the main secret to fun for riding these back roads is not to haul ass on them..keep in mind that you are not the only one on these roads and if you can't see around the curve or over the rise, SLOW DOWN!..we will even teach ya what we call leap froggin...real simple and work like a charm..all it takes is one to fuck it up real good and you can spend alot of time doing a search for lost riders!

I just put some firewood in the garage, in case it gets wet & cold here pretty quick, I also test ran the generator out in the shed, 2 pulls humming along.

Oh yeah, fixed the water heater this afternoon too, the dip tube ( tube the brings cold water in) was broken off at the top of the unit, right near the hot water output, so only luke warm water came out, basically tempering the water at the tank, not the valves in the house.

I once again have water that will scald skin off of a bull elk.

now to think about dinner..

hmmm, might try to roll out some wheat pasta...

and for some reason ive been drinking coors light, oh crap sorry Ted for putting a dent in your beer fridge.
