Hey Tex...If I remember right..that 1st pic was taken on the Blueridge Pkwy somewhere near Little Switzerland. I was on a trip with slowolddude...his young whippersnapper nephews & the Texas Oilman. I just happened to be off by myself at that spot.

lol. To quote a very insightful fella, it's kinda like dog years. ;)

TXjames was commenting tonight that we should just double or triple the number of maintenance intervals from normal. He was speaking of air filters but could have been speaking of many other expendables.



Speaking just for me, if it can be broke ... I'm gonna break it.

Well, screw it. Maybe if I get on the bike I can at least make it rain. Boredom overcomes good sense.

I terrorized family members with my Polaris and one of my cousins wants me to open a BBQ place in Houston. Don't see that happening. Survived catering for the wedding and Easter. Was asked to cook for 300 next weekend...not going to happen. Got a fifteen year olds birthday to attend to
