First Day New Tool! Much more to come! She cut through an amazing storm like butter with Fire engines , EMTs and Rescues squads called out in several counties. That’s the way I like it!
I will have thousands of photos in the near future. For now you can make fun of my High Water Jeans! I will have updates.
See Tunes below for Sade!
I must be dreaming!
Testing an adobe link with no good results.
In the past two days I ran into 2 different people that came to my aid. Both of those people had owned BMW’s or had them in their family. The first couple stopped after I asked them to take my photo. The kind Gentleman knew more about my camera and bike than I do. Today 20220724, My tripod fell off my bike and was dragging behind me. A good man flagged me down. When I pulled off to stop two really cool 20 something year old men stopped to help me tie it back down! Twenty years ago I dropped a Harley with my wife on it. Within two second a truck full of young bikers jumped out to help us lift it back up! I have guardian angels everywhere!
Someone I know hit 91 mph today, 20220726 for a few brief seconds. That someone has never been that fast on two wheels before.
There is this cool little cove close to the painted horses that I have always wanted to stop by and just sit or look! Today I just looked. i didn’t want to mess up the biology happening on the Stones!
Yes, Sade is looking more and more like my bike. I have never owned a bag, a car, a van, a trailer or a motorcycle that I couldn’t over pack. I just hope I don’t impale myself or my wife on the portable step
I have now dropped my bike twice in my driveway for no particular reason. I did it on both sides. The crash bar saved my heads. The first time I picked the bike up by the book. I walked it up backwards. The second time I needed help. My neighbor Gary came to the rescue. He is about ten times stronger than I am and made it seem easy. I’ve watched every video possible on picking up a bike. They put the hurt on me by using vertically challenged females that pick the bike up with ease. Now I’ve dropped a Harley and a BMW. I’m a fairly dangerous man!
Today is 20220829. Someone hit 100m.p.h. for a brief second today.
About 10:30pm Friday night I was doing about 55 mph on a back country road and heard a POW like a low caliber gunshot, more located to the front of me. I thought my front tire blew out. I went mushy in the back with just very little sway. Fortunately there was a country store two blocks ahead of me. The insurance people couldn’t find a tow all night long. But at 9:00pm sharp Paul, from BMW was out the door in his awesome van. He walked the bike up his ramp and into the rescue van like a seasoned pro. My biggest regret of the 12 hour adventure was not getting a shot of his cool van and wonderful companion Shepherd! But there is time for that! I found out my Disc skills have diminished greatly due to lack of practice. I may have to change that. For now I need to also practice riding the bike! Those are two great problems to have. I didn’t bend the rim. I didn’t crash on the side of a dark country road. My awesome wife brought me a steak sandwich about three or four am. I also read half the manual which the tech guy at the store will appreciate! I accidentally answered a phone call with the helmet and even made a call, so I am learning.
On The Road Again with a new Bandana and a new tire!
Just Hanging out, looking for adventure, ready to head out on the Highway!
I was Hanging out at my favorite Biker Bar, Cindy’s Snow Creamery and a short though passed through my shallow mind. Both my tires are different sizes but my sensors ended up in the same spot when I landed! There has to be some math to that!
