second, was that hawk still eating the road kill on 112 this morning when you want past it? ( between the hairpins, east of the drivein)

I should have stopped and taken a photo, but I thought I was in a hurry.
I've got these on the TW: http://www.superbrightleds.com/morei...rk-light/1386/

They've gone up in price since I bought them last year, but they're really well built and put out a lot of light.

I bought these for the Versys, and also installed a pair on my brothers KLR when I was in Phoenix. The light output is comparable to the ones on the TW, but they're a little bulkier and I'm not crazy about the way they mount. But the price is right so I won't complain.

I didn't notice any roadkill on 112. I cut off onto Deane Solomon.

Were you riding or in a car? I didn't notice you.

It was an email exchange thing, oh well, when stuff doesnt work out, I figure it means I wasnt meant to have it.

No big deal to me eitherway.

I like Telecasters. A unique sound. There's one for sale at Ashley Music in Harrison that's a half hollow body. Really different tone to it. I want it but haven't been able to get approval from the adult in our household.

Glade Top is a pleasant ride. Did you stop by the pavillion where the old brush arbor is located? There's a good campground not too far away from there as well.

Same here. And on top on top of that Wife has decided it was a good day to replace the water heater in our bathroom. And paint the living room & dining room. And otherwise spend money that I had allocated for mo'sickle farkles. lol
