Thanks Loftus. It was great. I'm sore from head to toe, but hey, rode hard.

The best insurance I've found against mirror breakage is leaving them a little loose. But it's a pain when they work loose while you're riding. The worst is when the mounts that are part of the lever assembly break - that can get real costly! I think for a bike that's going offroad, the cheapest fold-in kind (that give a clear image) are the best choice. Meanwhile I need one for my XRL as when the bike fell backwards on it, being a little loose didn't count as the face of it hit the dirt and pushed to tighten it. Most of the time they impact going forward and swing in.

Hope yousums had a great time at LF! And that the mirror was the extent of the casualties

Not trying to be a big "I"

Just so you folks don't think I got my fill of the SMIBs this weekend... I wanted to give a shout out. I'm working on my LF2010 Ride Report and the shirts. Just finished resizing the pics while I'm watching the end of Long way down. Got in a good ride with Katie this morning... she was showered and her new kicks felt great. On the way home the traffic was light around 3ish back from Rockville.

I think this was why my face hurt this morning... I was doing this all weekend. Had an awesome time... as usual. Thanks to you all!

Back at you; lunch with Chris and Lisa before heading out to my place for the night. When I do my Exit RR, you'll see how we got there. I'm really looking forward to BWDR HQ. If you or Banshee or both want to enjoy a weekend of lighthouse riding (see sig for LH Ride), Friday night crash at my place, hotel Saturday on the ocean, then back to my place Sunday. We plan to take the bay tunnel so you could be home for Football.
