Yeah, just kidding.

I've been folding the TVIP and carrying in my passport with the FMM for
a few years now when I'm on the bike. When in the car I put them on the windshield. No one has ever hassled me about not mounting the sticker on the bike. When asked for a TVIP at checkpoints I just pull it from my pocket and hand it over. They hand it back and into the pocket it goes, no worries. Just more special dispensation for motorcycles, I guess.

Maybe just coincidence but since the presidency changed parties I've not been asked to produce a TVIP (or FMM) at any military checkpoint past the Tourist Zone check. And not even there the last two times. OK by me.

So I've been playing one of those tag games here in Lameabama since everyone in this part of the state rides a harley. Today I decided to move the tag to a spot where they will have to wash their bikes and reapply the tire shine after they get back.

Found a sweet state forest with some maintained road, some not so maintained dirt roads/jeep trails. Pissed off some killer angry wasps when I unkowingly tried to put our tag in their nest. Almost made a spectacular crash in this damn lethal Alabama red clay mud shit. Got biffed by a super thunder storm on the way back that brought visibility down to about 1/8th of a mile for 10 minutes while droping about 2 inches of rain by the time I got back...AND FUCKING ALLIGATORS!



I win at Monday ADVing.

Twin Akrapovics on an LC8 sound good but the 2-1 exhaust sounds mean. It's like a swarm of angry badgers with mortars and chainsaws pillaging ones ears.
