You guys are funny.

btw...that was performed by a professional rider on a closed course, do not attempt to duplicate.


I've been on the road since Wed after work...this is what I was watching march towards my route all day at work.



No pics from that night as it was wet, chilly and then dark but I made it to Montgomery, AL just before midnight and grabbed a room for the night.

Thursday's little day-trip was a slab run to Houston....not much to take pics of but how about a few rolling bayou shots?








































This 'bridge' stretches for 20 miles between Baton Rouge and Shreveport.

Lots of Truckin_Thumpers out on the interstate!



























Right on I-10 but literally miles from an exit?



Business didn't look to be too good.












Where gasoline is born.

The smells are very different down that way... Thats what's great about riding. You can smell your surroundings.

When you cross Texas on I-10 it aint but 880 miles to NM.














If it's Permanently Closed...why not just remove the sign?














There were a couple of delays but they were a bigger problem for the one that caused them, I think.














Made it to Bender's safe and sound!

Especially when you get to Bender's!

He's got a nice shed though...and you know how I like sheds!




























...but there's nothing like some paintball to keep the 'hood safe.

Pretty impressive, both bike and rider.


I forsee a Susuki endorsement, perhaps a TV spot, other than you'd have to "envoke the 5th" for any use of the previous photo .

There are some good buys on Wee Stroms on Stromtrooper.com. Some have lots of extras already installed.
I bought one there that was in Austin Tx and flew and rode it home. It was listed on craigslist.

I bought mine new, but will buy the next one used. Would you be interested in an '09 with 41,000 miles.

I guess I'm going to have to do a 50k at 50mph later this year.

I picked up a '06 last fall with 9K, givi bags and top box, skid plate and Alta bars ... I have never titled it, if interested? I have more bikes than I can ride! Cleaning out the garage before I get cleaned out!!
