Road Captain? Why I don't even own a pair of chaps! we don't need no stinkin' road captain.
I for one am not gonna use my rok straps to haul a chain saw around. (note...being the suburbanite that I am, my only chain saw is an electric one.)

Yeah, let's stick to riding and finding ways around that stuff.

Does anyone else feel DejaVu here? You guys are hard on the Buell, but it is still fun. Thanks Cody, can't wait to get a new tire for the next time we go out.

Good ride great to finally meet some of you folks. Thanks for the route Cory. Looking forward to more. I like getting lost too.

I'm concerned though. ISBENZ and I parted ways at the intersection of 100 and 96. When I got home I heard a news story that at the intersection of 100 and The Trace (where The Loveless is) there was a fatality m c and PT Cruiser crash and th road is still closed. I am hoping and praying that Brian is good.
Please chime in here man. This one is just too close.

Not that it's ever good by any means.

Not that it's ever good by any means. But at least it doesn't sound like our boy.
Still sucks.

My wife says that the accident was around 11:30 am, he should be in the clear. I still hate to think of anyone being in a mc wreck and a death is terrible.
