Just got back in from AR, OK, and Kansas. Had a great ride and may post some pics, but not planning a ride report. Over 2000 miles in 4 days (was planning to be gone 6 but, shit happens.

Was a great time alone in the middle of nowhere.

Nope. Nice bruise from hitting a coyote, broken GPS due to a crow attack, and a big ass ticket from a cop in OK. No offs, but I would rather have an off than pay out the ass for a ticket (25 mph over the limit).

Can't imagine how any of it happened...

OK cops are no joke. Been there, done that.

Yet another reason I don't like hardbags.

I hit an old junked car with my Ortleibs yesterday and they are fine. Tree down over the road, did not want to back track 22 miles, local told me about a fourwheeler trail that led to the hwy. The trail had several 50+ y.o. cars and trucks parked on it. Steep rocky terrain, cars in the way, loaded bike... It's simple physics. WHACK!

I'm so against the use of law enforcement as a cover to pad there coffers I could rant on this for hours. They are no where to be found when real crimes against law abiding citizens are involved, of course not the pay is not as good. That's all this is about, money. They don't care if you go kill yourself just pay them on your way to do it. Now when my house is being robbed where the hell are they? The problem with the fine system is it doesnt stop there after the fines been paid oh no here come the other legal vultures insurance companies. Want respect from me, earn it don't charge me a users fee!!

I know what you are going through back in '09 when the deer I hit on the bandit 1250 tore one bag off. Suzuki wouldn't sell them individually I had to buy the pair. Ran the cost up double. Sucks that this has to be so expensive they are making money but want to make more.

Started a little RR from my trip for those who asked, and those looking for more material to use against me.

Well, we're moving officially at the end of June. Not overseas, another company came along and made the wife an offer we couldn't refuse, so we're now going to Hattiesburg. Though this might be better, we'll get multi week tvisits to over seas plants for her instead of moving to just one place. I'll still be driving up once a week or so to lecture at Holmes. I want to thank all you guys for all the friendship and hospitality. Hopefully soon - later in the year I'll be looking at a new bike again.
I'm not disappearing, well, anymore than usual. But just wanted to extend my thanks for making us welcome down here to begin with.
