JB - cool scoot! How do you like that compared to your new honda?

haven't had much time to ride - thanksgiving out of state for a week, uncle was killed in a construction accident on black friday, so back to florida for the funeral for a week... then catch up at work work work...(even today, full day)

maybe I can get a ride in soon - my girls are feeling neglected!

Merry christmas ADV peeps!

Love the Honda Silver Wing. It's 600cc automatic and very comfy. Under seat storage, two dash cubbies too. They say top speed is around 110 but I've only taken mine to 90. Very solid at that speed and still lots of throttle left so it's more bike than I need.

The CTX is great too and more fun when you want to downshift around curves.

Each is nice but having both is better!

ah ok - that looked like a silverwing, wasn't 100% sure.

Like the built in storage.... even BMW is in now with the big scooters - the kind that you can zip around town, but get out into the countryside if need be.

Eastern, NC and Triangle tag all within an hour of each other. If it were only 15* warmer!

Really? I looked at the forecast earlier and could have sworn it said "colder than yesterday, barely breaking into the 40s".

50s I can do!

*** 49* was the forecast high. But sunny. I've got nothing but time. Just need weather!

I know exactly where the TriROR tag is...unfortunately I do not care for any of the roads that I have to ride to get out there...I absolutely refuse to ride I40 in either direction between Raleigh and Mocksville. It is not a safe road for cars and trucks let alone motorcycles...so the other way is through durham and with that traffic...fugheddaboudit

Hey folks, we have a golden opportunity here. The NC tag at Merritt's has not fallen. Anybody want to do a little meet and greet for a BLT tomorrow?
