Never thought I'd ever see them again, yet here they are a year later, on ADV.
Florida plates. Makes sense...

Proves my point: a pair if 'em, trailer'd behind a Winnie, with FL tags. MUCH more money than sense!

The weather's too scary for the pirate parades and squid squadrons, I guess. If it's not 75 and sunny, you'll die twice before you even make it to the end of your driveway, ya know.

I'm not a pirate or a squid. I'm not leaving the house in the rain to go on a pleasure ride.

I've ridden in rain before, once for nearly a week. I'll most likely ride in rain again. Doesn't mean I need to go looking for it.

Nice pic. The V46 case makes it look a little like an FJR/AWACS.

It was a perfect afternoon to ride the gap. Most of the pirates were hanging around the store telling lies. The squids must have been hiding out somewhere else.

Watch next weeks highlights for fail pix. Mine is the dirty one.






Someone did trash a Miata this afternoon tho. Don't think anyone was hurt but the front end of the car was trashed.
