It is good to have the right tool for the job.

A19, The right tool for the job is good right up until the time you have to wash all of them, change the oil in all of them and buy new tires for all of them, etc....... For some reason if your herd is anything like mine they all want new tires at the same time.

We just got back. I guess you could say she was "rode hard and put away wet".

Had lunch in Hillyard then home via Mead, Peone, Argonne etc.

FYI, that Wofman tank bag is NOT waterproof.

Hope your riding gear is. It was freakin' dumping at our place. Didn't look much like riding weather to me. You must have REALLY wanted to get out and go for a spin.

We didn't let a silly little rainstorm stop us. Did a BBQ down at St. Marie's at Xmas hills.

Did a little 7 mile jaunt with the dogs and the ladies...

These dogs ran the whole 7 miles and are pooped tonight.

My buddy Dylan and I at the end of the ride, soaked to the bone. Best to have a fresh tire out there when its wet. There were some hill climbs that were super tough, especially with a bad tire. There was one that kicked my butt and didn't make it up.

I didn't put my rain pants on so I got a little wet. That big fairing usually keeps me pretty dry as long as Im moving. As usual, visibility was the biggest problem. I got license tabs yesterday and was very motivated the run some fresh gas through her since she had been sitting since last October.

Yup, same dog, and he somehow was way smarter than the other dog with us.

The boys and I use to go to xmas hills all the time when they were younger. That is one of the coolest places to go to camp out and ride. I miss those days.
