ok...its that time of year again...for my own riding greed of course...not that I need a reason to ride...you guys know the deal..only this year back to a 1/4 lb bag of stale, mold infested, jaw breaking, teeth shattering multi-colored jelly beans....retired now...gotta watch dem pennies...and the cost of jelly beans...wtf?

for those of you new to this and foolish enough to actually consider entering this contest, a better understanding can be explained in the first few posts of last years contest

https://www.volusiariders.com/54-general-motorcycle-discussion/404186-dc-s-2017-jelly-bean-mileage-contest-tuesday-dec-26-a.html

right now in NH...w/o the ride...imagine that...week in NH in October...no mc...must be a nightmare but temps showed low 30's for the week with occasional snow/rain...broke my heart...

so unable to post the present mileage pic until I return home...which will be Thursday nite...cutting vacation short here to visit my son presently in Va...work related. More than likely take the car tho, probably head over to my daughters afterward in Tenn for a few days.

So, figure sunday nite will be the deadline for a guess.

Good luck.
