Bike is officially done. Rally Raid windscreen finally arrived. Feels a lot better from the buffeting standpoint.

I was super stoked on how it looked......

But when Hochtouren showed up for a comparo, well.....
DAMN THAT SCREEN/LIGHT COMBO LOOKS SEXY!

Continental Divide pics from September, 2011. Definitely lacking the artsy skills of some of ya, but these are the captured memories that will last a life time. This was a two week ride with my wife, 2800 miles, 25% off the tarmac, loaded to the nuts with camping gear, tools, laptop, cameras, and even the straight iron for the wife.

This is what I would rather 'envision' than go to work tomorrow...



Say it with me: "Yeah, I'm really not feeling well today sir...maybe I should just stay home and rest."

Ya know.....you don't have to be physically sick! There is such a thing as a "mental health day"


( I must be really sick since I've been on a ride since March.....)

Aren't you one of the bosses who make that decision? Can you be my boss so I can get permission to ride?
