I'll try not to leave it at a dry cleaners.

Hope you are doing well. Hope the job is still going well.

Same goes for everyone. Have a good weekend.
Yes Thankyou things are holding...Happy New Year!!! Tag whatever makes you feel good...

I've been doing that for years including owning several two strokes at a time. If it's all the same, I think I'm just going to go ahead and proclaim algore full of shit..

It's a farce!

With the high barely cracking the freezing mark, I won't be riding today. It rained yesterday, and there is ice around here. My wife's car doors were frozen shut this AM. I figured by now, she'd wrap up her project in the garage and start parking there again.....

If it hadn't been so windy, I'd have ridden this morning. Blessing in disguise, I guess. Norovirus hit with the weight of a 20# sledge hammer around 10:30. Would NOT have wanted to ride home trying to battle that feeling.

New tag in a little while. I'll leave it in town. I won't drag it waaaaaay down to southeast wake county. Anyone need their shirts pressed?

Southeast or Southwest Wake County will be fine!

Their Website only shows one location and the building is painted a different color in gooooooogle street view. Has it been painted since the last googly pic?

How far are you wanting to drive, how much area do you need? PM me if you want to drive to Harnett County. It's kinda far from you but it's free.


You got this via Crapatalk - now Free

Yeah, I know. Seems like I got the 22 hour version of the norovirus, but trying to determine if I feel like testing it in 24 degrees. It's only about 10 minutes from here and I haven't ridden in the last two days, but...

Yeah, took the dog for a walk in the woods and was feeling pretty warm. PinkMoose then pointed out that walking and riding have two different temperature tolerances!
