I actually love that road on the big bike. I can't wheelie yet (still?), but I have a hoot on the water breaks.

The one and only time i've gotten a wheelie was on Dunkle and it's wasn't intentional nor did it end well for me. I've never been on Long Run so I'm looking forward to it! Hopefully I won't slow the xchallenge down too much.

Howdy Wes! Not sure of the route as of yet I think we're going to play it by ear. You're more than welcome to join. We're camping out Friday night and plan on hitting the trail fairly early on Saturday morning. PM me if you want to join and I'll give you my number to get a hold of us.

Let's give a warm applause : EOD3MC.

More information on the award here

If you are insaneley jealous of his infamy, don't worry! With any "luck", we'll all give the gift that keeps on giving!

PS Please ensure that you initialize the box with the recipents name and achievement before you pass it on!

As a proud recipient (think the "Legs lamp" from the 1980s movie A Christmas Story) will have to prominently display it at your residence (or place of work) until such a time the next recipient is crowned.

Actually, I think I'm going to fill one of the shakers with water since it was a "drowning"...the next shaker can be filled with whatever the bane of that rescue turns out to be....adds to the story behind it factor...

Shoulda sent one with B&D to the Pine Barens to fill with sand.

Nope, sacrificial keys!

First, there was EOD3MC's Ignition key problem.

Then, there was Blaster's GPS key problem

Now, tonight I realize when I when I changed out my Jesse locks, I didn't do the one that connects the top case to the mount. And thinking I was done with the old keys, I've thrown out all the old keys. I really wanted to take it off for tomorrow, lest it get even more dents

It was funny when it happened to the boys. Not so funny now.

RevZilla

So a few more things about RevZilla yesterday. I checked out first, and she asked for my email address. It seems their system instantly credited $5 to account. Yeah baby. Then Blaster checks out, and uses the same email addy...and gets to use my Zilla Dollars

Zilla also paid the sales tax!

Lastly, they finally have a sound female principle. For starters, the female staff actually might ride and have a normal IQ. Then, they don't buy women's kit in only pink (thank my lucky stars...). Lastly, they actually stock a good assortment of women's kit.
