Ever buy a new bike then leave for 3 weeks 2 days after buying it??? Talk about serious withdrawals! :( Guess thats life right??

Thankfully 1 week of this 3 week trip is down and I'll be back home!

Even worse is having it in the garage and your twisted knee joint won't let you walk over and ride it.

I got mine from a location 500 miles away of my place. I went there and picked it up, rode it all the way home (arrived home at midnight) then next morning I had left for 2 weeks. Without the bike, of course.

3 weeks sounds like an inital to me. Are you getting a type rating?

I wish! I'm actually in the other end of the aviation field.. I investigate aircraft accidents for a living.. doing a two week course here and an additional week in HQ then back home.

That's cool, I think that'd be interesting. Got to help some of our local FSDO guys with three crashes over the years when I was in maintenance. The toughest one was a small plane with a guy and his daughter and the little girl ended up dying in the hospital some time later...all because the dillhole was too cheap to put a little gas on before coming home. He started sputtering over the airport I was working out of and couldn't find the field. After looking for like 5 minutes he ended up crashing in a field about 1/2 mile from the end of the runway.

It is an interesting job for sure. Alway different scenarios and rarely the same. Not to mention being able to contribute to aviation safety, etc. Oh, and if you search the NTSB's accident database, you'll be amazed how many people run out of fuel.



Oh, and thanks for the compliments on the photos... just a hobby of mine.. :)
