Yup. I have a full BMW suit. Dirt bike helmet. A video cam. A BMW. But the only part of that video that looks even vaguely familiar to me is when he is pushing against the beam. Just change the beam to a heavy bump gate. The rest of it? Not so much.

James and I saw him in FW.

Sunset on the BRP. 120 miles with not a single car (or cop) in front of me. A religious experience of sorts.

The off shoots for the peaks were still closed (the sides of the main roads still had snow) but goddam what a road.

I forgot about the recent snow. But it is a sweet road in the remote areas.

In other news, KilLeR did not blowthefuck up on the way to Clifton. I tried. So, I guess she's good to go. Well. Except for that whole "no brakes at all" thang .

Ok. Now KilLeR has shitty KLR brakes which is livable. Barely. No brakes? Not so much. So I am not bikeless.


In fact, she's running pretty dang good. For the 34 hp bone stock rocket ship she is.


Anybody going anywhere on a bike tomorrow? I don't really want to ride to Llano at thirty till dawn to meet the TWT camping crew.
