Birthday Ride

Went to Texas to see my son and yesterday was my b-day so we went for a ride. He has a BMW S1000RR and a HP4 Competition, Oh my, What a b-day ride Shifting using the shift light I could just keep up with the shifting. They are sooo fast it seems like as soon as you shift the light is on to shift again, then you get a chance to glance at the speedo and oh s--t how fast am I going!! Great fun. Birthdays should come more often

March 20th is a big day for birthdays around here - Happy Birthday to you....and after riding those hot rods you probably feel like tossing out some old iron

Happy Birthday you old fart. Personally I'm glad they don't come more often unless I can have more of them. Glad you had a great ride with your kid. Rusty
