Lost in a haze of work

but finally the battery on the charger last night and went for my first ride since early December.

The 247 fired right up, after sitting in the sun for a couple hours, and away we went.

Very nice!

I was told that I am expected at a Airhead Tech Day here in NC.

It's only 350 miles. After work? Saturday morning?

Methinks Saturday. Early. On the RS.

Time to look at the oil, air in tires and battery. 100 miles it'll be charged, regardless.

Yeah yeah yeah

Rinse & repeat.
Nothing big - a quick 75 miles after work. Just me and the deer grazing in fields.
Amazing how two wheels and the wind wash it all away.

I have no idea who I would be without motorcycling.

And Ozmo, glad you could get your first ride in

'Weed will get you through times of no money better than money will get you

Yep, the motorcycle quote is a direct adaption of the FFFB (Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers) iconic sayin' of "dope will get you through times of..."

Or sumptin' like that...

ps--

JOOC I looked up the bio of Gilbert Shelton:

In part:

Shelton moved back to Texas to enroll in graduate school and get a student deferment from the draft... After switching from graduate school to art school (where he befriended singer Janis Joplin) for two years, he was finally drafted, but Army doctors declared him medically unfit after he admitted to taking psychedelic drugs. After this, in 1964 and 1965, he spent some time in Cleveland, where his girlfriend at the time was going to the Cleveland Art Institute. He applied for a job at the Cleveland-based American Greeting Card Company (where a fellow underground comic artist Robert Crumb had worked) but was turned down.

@Bill, the comics are worth a read, pretty funny. The customs in Wexford docks
once took a freak brothers flag off me as drugs paraphernalia! True story

I thought it was Fury Flying Freak Brothers?

Remember when the cat shit in the pot plant hanging on the wall? They couldn't find where the stink was coming from.
