go for it! I do the same thing when there are too many clues... doesn't seem to be changing behavior though.

I was going to grab it earlier in the day - too much yardwork (crappy rainy summer), put out the first application of fertilizer for the fescue season... cleaned the grill, got one vehicle inspected, then had just enough time to ride and grab the tag.

I missed the unveiling of the new harley lineup at ray price - they had already talked about the new bikes, but at least had them in the show room.... potatopotatopotatopotatopotato

Lost in youngsville

I went the same place as you (near Tractor Supply). Took a picture of my bike in front of a fake drawbridge. Got home and realized I had the wrong place. Oh well, it's all good. Just riding around enjoying the nice weather.

Dude, I apologize. I did a quick google search before posting it and saw the youngsville address listed and didn't check it further. I usually street view it or make sure it's easily findable otherwise. I had zero intention of making it difficult.

Bonus that Badget Sisters Pkwy has some sweet curves just before hitting Yanceyville... although there's not much in town to ride for.
Where is this place? I live north of Hillsborough so that's pretty close.

However that idea passed. Any stock bike should be road ready, especially new. You should not have to re-jet it and install a better exhaust just for a bike to run cooler. My cousin just did a nice tour from Indiana to FL on his 2009 Electra-Glide. In FL, it started to run hot so the ignition cuts off one cylinder (some band-aid like this) so the bike doesn't overheat. Based upon the hot conditions here in NC, I would not want any more heat than a regular bike.
Plus dragging of floor-boards while cornering doesn't seem right.

I never did test ride one because I was afraid I would want one even more.

There are a lot on Craigslist.

My Strom fits the bill for reliability. If I want a nice exhaust sound and a bike that may leave me stranded I take the BMW.

Now I feel crappy for using my post in North American wild card game. Your unconventional farm blows mine grab away. Very cool tag!
