Guess them new tires were closer than I thought!

Since the weather Thursday didn't look too bad I figured I'd take the bike to a meeting I had Downtown (Downtown, Uptown, whatever you want to call it ) . At least that was the plan....

I made it down the driveway and to the end of the block before I was greeted with this:



Hmmm. Red stuff typically equals "Not Good". Guess some investigation is in order...



Wonder what the problem could be?



Guess that could explain it!



The last time I road it was coming home from the pizza get-together the other night. Not sure if I picked up the prize then or on my way out Thursday morning.

Either way it looks like the 'ol girls gonna get a new pair of shoes sooner rather than later!

It does have allot of pretty lights.....I just don't like the red ones!

So I did wind up plugging it.



Didn't ride it down to the wear bars though but I did ride it down to the stealership and got me a couple new ones.

Augiedog, BlueridgeRider & XCRider803,

Sorry as I was out mowing the yard so that I can ride tomorrow.

I guess I will poll the group to see if you want to combine twisties with a little ADV riding tomorrow based on type of bike everyone is riding. Let me know and I will work on a route later today.

Meeting Points:

Meet at Cycle Gear in Matthews at 9:15am. 9:30am Kickstands up.
Second Meet Up Point for riders living North of Charlotte. We will meet at the Kangaroo gas station off I-85S and 321N. Take I-85S from Charlotte. Get off 321N past Gastonia. Once you take 321 N exit, you will see a Kangaroo gas station immediately to the right. We can meet there at 10:00am to 10:15 am or so.

Let me know which meetup point. We should be back to Charlotte by 4:00pm or so

My cell number is seven seven zero 823- one588.

Thanks.

Jon

Definitely. If I owned one Harley, it would be the one styled from the XR750.

Nice bike!

I'm up for whatever the group decides - all tarmac or some Adv mixed in. Augie may want to stay on the tarmac with his new wheels and that's just fine. I will meet you at the Cycle Gear location.

Augie & Numa,

Great ride and great company today. Other than that lunatic V-Max rider that hooked up with us as we rode old 18.

Thanks for showing me some of your favorite backroads. I will try to post our total route tomorrow from the Zumo. I am totally spent and getting ready to settle back with my beverage.

Jon
