levain, nice to see that WRR so durty.

Rusty, you finally make it out to little Rhody for a ride, and I miss it

I made it back from Key West on the TE610. Probably dripped more oil than the Exxon Valdez in the last few days.

Only one drop, but it was a spectacular one (and of course it was when I was out riding alone in the early morning). Who needs two mirrors?! I'm covered in bruises and bug bites
You can't make an adventure without breaking some parts!

Welcome back!

I have a feeling the bike was going to be a year coming up no matter if she rode it then or now.

Simple, not looking forward. I looked to the side and my friend stopped in front of me. I looked back and locked up the front for about 5 feet and BAM. Luckily I was only doing about 10. He said it didn't feel lime much, but I went down hard. I could have swore I broke a rib or two. Glad I didnt.
