Rob - he can go to work and recuperate.

Thanks for the reply. I thought they were going to be gone for two weeks originally. Thought the first week was blown with repairs....I guess I got it wrong. I worry!

It's a whole lot different perspective, comfort level and ride being on the back than it is up front twisting the throttle ....so I'm guessing that Becky will need R&R when she gets back for sure. Who knows....they may decide to sell the house when they get home and live like motorcycle nomads...ya never know! I betcha once she gets used to the rugged-ness of it all, she'll wish they could live like that...the simplicity, yet at the same time being constantly stirred by nature................! Can't wait to find out!

Thanks again Nicky!

We're back!!


I did intend to paint it black and did some of it, but the boss wanted the yellow tank to stay. It seems to draw bees and I'm newly allergic to bee stings, so it might get a coat of black yet.


I'll post a link when I start a new report for the latest trip.

Try to picture 100 mph winds...


Thanks for all the great participation, you guys make this place!!

A little windstorm.

Becky wanted to stay, but Rob was concerned it would muss his hair.





I'm glad ya'll made it back - I'll put the popcorn on and wait patiently for the new ride report.

Good song, man...I never even bothered to check that band out but I must say I knida like it. Gotta be careful not to listen to it before bed time as it makes me wanna take the bike out and go WOT.

Nice RR, too.

It belongs to Nowhere Bob, plated in Nevada with turn signals and everything, very cool little bike. 40,000 miles on it and runs great. He has a 225 for road riding.
