We are having a great time, nonetheless. Kind of making our way and planning each day's riding based on the forecast and radar. Very happy to be down here for a few days!

Nice grab. Didn't take long.

As far as the weather is concerned, so far this year we have reached the average annual rainfall already. I'm ready for it to slow down for a while.

I found a kayak for my spare time. Kayaked up the channel I live on and was paddling on (over?) the golf course this morning. I have less lawn to mow because part of it is under water.

Off Topic Warning

Just a stolen bike heads-up guys and gals
I got phreakshack back in the divorce settlement, but my '92 TDM850 that was trapped in the garage has wandered off/been rustled.

Anyone who sees one in the WNC being parted out or a red one (with safety wire stitching on the fairing and a NOISY homemade 2-into-1)
Please please drop me a line!!

Or if anyone works a parts counter and sees anyone that is looking for PARTS for a TDM

Wink

Going to bring it back South. Should have it up late tomorrow afternoon.

FYI I had a great cheeseburger for dinner at that little market beside the bridge. It was a smokin hot ride from NC to NY. I highly recommend soaking your mesh riding jacket down every hour or so.

Very nice. I love when it gets up North but I'm also aware that this game isn't on their list in that region. It'll see more action down into the Southeast region.

Good job!
