Tarantula. They come out after the rain. The ones around here are shy and mostly harmless.

Ah, that makes sense. Exactly what it looked like now that you say it.

The worst part is you'll have to watch it ride around without you on a regular basis.

Are you saying he didn't lose sight of it when he was doing moving dismounts? Or were you inferring that they weren't on a regular basis?

Arriving Shortly

Hi, Long time since I was here in ABR-land.
After my trip to the USA in 2011 to ride to 33 towns called Manchester (Book pending see www.unitedstatesofamanchester.blogspot.com ) I am coming over from the UK again and will be landing at DFW on Tuesday 16th October.
I will be bikeless but still happy to see meet and drink beer with anyone in Arlington area
. Facebook me at Roadto Manchester or Twitter @road2manchester

I own a R1200GSA in the UK, and will miss my 'BEKU' whilst I spend 5-6 weeks in the Dallas area. (Maybe more).


Manchester England

Pete

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

Fireball is destined to kill him. We all knew that when he brought her home.

Just avoid cattle guards.

And deer.

Wouldn't want to hurt the bike.

I know exactly how you feel. When I sold this bike to you, I should have gone higher too. But I gave you the ultimate brother-in-law deal. I can only hope that you are passing the same steal-deal along to him. Kinda reminds me of the story you told me about the 1150 GS you sold to a fellow Cental Texas advrider and your reaction when you wanted to buy it back. Ring a bell?
