I'm fighting the urge to put the new tag in Lipscomb county so I'll post this before I kill this thread.

Here it is.

I initially thought the historical marker displayed an aviation mechanic, never thought it would be a HS band member.

A mere 143 miles from the nation's 9th largest city, an area with a population of almost seven million, and the tag has not been grabbed?

When I passed the marker the other week I thought it was a gangster and I turned around to read it. Yeah, I'm a history geek.

The tag was placed 4 days ago. I guess your bike is broken. Perhaps someone will get it this weekend. I toyed with the idea of getting it today, but the need to make money took priority over the need to ride and play.

Guess I should have gone today instead of tomorrow like I planned to.

May be a new tag will be up by morning.

On another note, truck, trailer and WR are serviced and ready to roll to New Mexico next weekend.

Its on, but I haven't filled it up yet. Hopefully it holds the gas without leaking.

Now I've got to change the sprockets and chain. Some day I'm going to have a garage with A/C, but that has happened yet.

I haven't decided what to do for a tank on mine, I don't need much range so will keep it stock for awhile.
