Morning Dennis,
How is retirement? Honey do list done? If I have time to ride this weekend, I will be watching Paula ride in circles. She did not do so well in class and needs more time in the seat to get comfortable. Well, she has to be able to keep her butt in the seat. She dropped the bike a couple of times in class and while practicing with me. Trainer did not think she was going to do "well" on the test after the first day. She is persistent but a slow learner. I am working now to get engine guards on the bike to protect it from the ground and her legs. She is was/is nursing a hip injury that she received from her workouts. So patience is the key here. With this heat, I have been keeping my head indoors and not doing much of anything except chores indoors. So my list is getting bigger.

Safe ride my friend!

Keep your rubber on the road and your feet on the pegs and have a good ride.

Peace,
Bigbert

I'll be out if weather permits. Maybe we could meet up, say somewhere in eastern Ohio or Western PA.



You said anywhere.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

Congrats on retirement.
I'm booked this weekend. Going to try to do Snake's run.

I have an '08 C50.
Everyone makes me ride at the back because of my Morton Violators.
Longest ride: 1241 miles in 20 hours 15 minutes


Interested in a replacement gas tank, in black, but I'm cheap
