Its always the right day to ride! Saturday was very challenging and really pushed the limits of what I thought I could handle.

Afraid I wont be able to get out until 1030, have to show the house to a perspective renter at 1000.. that wouldnt allow us much time to get off the island and ride.

Very good.

And take the time to heal up, it would suck to be down for another two weeks because you weren't patient enough to rest.

I will definitely ride the big bike on the roads this weekend.. might ride the small bike on some of the big bike stuff, just to scratch my itch.

Congratulations on good med report

I seem to have gotten beyond my 4 month stint of belly pain generated by Kidney Stones

Tomorrow I should have the Vstrom out of the Basement

Good news, Now leave that .50 cal for the privates to carry.

I get cleared to ride easy in another week.

Rob, I can't beleive your riding the loop already. Be careful man!

Glad to hear that MrT! If you are planning to go out for a ride this weekend I''ll probably head over to Twisted Throttle for a while on Saturday....

Join us on April 13 for our Service Center Grand Opening!

Come join Twisted Throttle as we welcome Jim Hamlin to the Twisted Crew. Jim will be the Service Manager of our new Motorcycle Service Center! Besides showing off our brand new facility we will also be offering discounts, grilling some chow and introducing you to...
blah blah blah...

Twilight Error, I am pretty sure I spotted you riding on 95N this afternoon around 6pm while I was southbound.

I also got a bunch of these in the mail today.. A test run for a future order.. Free to all who attend camp and rides this year!

Likewise, I'm thinking I want to get in on the DS ride as well. I'll have to put my TKC wheels back on, but that isn't a big deal.

And yes, you very likely saw me on I95 today, I was headed up to Creannstin.
