I hope so too, I might be able to stave it off by donning my rainsuit before it starts
That works everytime.

I loved the ride to Alice's!! That was awesome and caught me completely by surprise, a totally unexpected turn on the trip.

I am glad you are having a good time Brian. I wish I would have gone for that beer with you last week. I might have just called in sick for a week or so and come with you. Some of the best rides I have ever had were impromptu runs like this one of yours. Stay warm. A man once wrote, "The coldest winter I ever saw was my summer in San Francisco." Keep on post. Good reading!

P.S. Don't be embarrassed about the near fuel emergency. I have a 7 gallon tank on the KLR and I ran out of gas once. I kept saying, "oh I have plenty of gas." they all kept topping off. I was doing about 80 when the engine cut out otherwise I would have had to push the last couple of miles instead of coast.

Did you burn the chicken or were you caught choking the chicken/ BBQ'ing alone?

Hi Paul.
Nice to see you here. You know how it goes man, I'd rather be alone in a helmet than alone in a big empty house.
We'll do beers when I get back

That can be explained away, It's just like a rifle "I was just cleaning it and it went off"
