Went to a parking lot to practice emergency stopping with the MP3.

While I was there a guy was trying to learn how to ride his new motorcycle that a friend rode there for him. He has never ridden a motorcycle ever. He's taking the class next week.

He was trying to figure out the whole clutch, throttle thing....he's never even driven a standard car.

The bike he was learning on for his first bike....a C90....big bike to learn on.

would have thought the friend would have suggested he start with something smaller...upgrade next year after getting comfortable with riding a mc...at least he's taking the class.

Whats the big hurry...slow down and enjoy the ride!

His friend was the one selling him the bike.

I left as while I watched I knew the bike was going to be dropped eventually.

I'm out for next Saturday. Rainy day, went to the Western Mass home show to kill time.

Now I have a 1:00 appointment next Saturday to have someone give us a quote on stripping and resealing the pool deck.

Also came out of there with a SleepIQ app on my phone. This was an expensive afternoon....won't go to the home show again anytime soon.

If Saturday gets rained out, I'm in for Sunday.

Hey! Love to join the ride Dennis, but Linda and I will be heading out to our place in Arizona next Saturday for a week. (Might meet up with bbqjoe). Fingers crossed, I might be buying a bike while we are out there. I have a line on a beautiful 2002 Yamaha XV 1600 Road Star with just 14K that my AZ plumber is selling. Hope the weather next weekend is as nice as this past weekend. Very jealous of all the bikes on the road as I was stuck working on my car trailer.

Enjoy the ride and be safe. There is still a lot of sand and potholes out there.
