Hey that bike looks familiar

OK, well I won't post any pics of today's 300-mile ride from Linville Falls NC to Mecca, AKA North Georgia. But lemme tell ya something: it was truly epic. Average speed? Maybe 50MPH. That's actually pretty fast for a POG like me in some of these twisties...

Think I'll stay up here a while

Dum dum diddly dum... Sunrise on the emerald coast. Just gotta love it! It's Friday too!

Well - got my new front fender and new tail rack for the DR. I need to get my lazy ass over to DMV and get the plate from my Burgman 650 x-ferred over, and the title x-ferred too. Also still need to straighten out the forks vs handle bars vs triple tree thing.

Bought a 10x20 storage building. I was going to get a 12x20 with a 12x20 carport on the side but that was too delux for my requirements. The 10x20 should be plenty big enough to store 3 motorcycles, riding lawn mower, generator, gas cans etc. It will be getting installed July 5. Once that's in, I am going to turn my garage/man cave into more of a party room. Dart board, flat screen TV, Hobby tables etc. Might even install a HO race car track or train set layout. Who knows? It will still be used for vehicle maintenance though, because it's air conditioned and heated - but now I wont have to trip over the conveyances that are in there now cause they'll be out in the storage room. I am pretty sure I will always have at least one of the bike in there and ready to go at all times tho.

Looks like a Brewton Beast ride is shaping up for Monday. Frank you're headed to Barbers this weekend - truth? Enjoy and take some pictures - especially of the old stuff like all us POGs dig! BTW - skip buying any more bikes for us. I think we've seen enough turn over for the time being!

You already heard my story WR - plus, SIGH, I have to WORK on Monday - GAH (one of these days, one of these days -- I'ma gonna just stick it to the man like so many POGs have)... I, for one though, know what work was like when it was fun. Nowadays - not so much. Oh well...

Sounds like a nice tour!

Anyway: http://www.amazon.com/Instant-Fisher...8328221&sr=1-2

Looking forward to the day I can get a "retired" license plate.

Pics of Old men doing what Old men do best!

BS Mostly



Sometimes we pose and wave


Sometimes we try to look manly


Sometimes we point out UFOs...



We do other things too it just takes longer...
