    Good ride -

    But obviously too long for a noon start, especially when the sun is setting by 6:30PM.

    Marcin - next time tell Martin where we are actually heading before you sign him up for one of my adventures!

    Ride pics


    The initial gathering at Full Moon...

    Do you realize that 3 of these people have absolutely no idea of where we are riding to?

    A 'Discussion' about where we now are (we are almost to Door County and on the Western coast of Lake Michigan)

    A compromised ride - Cake - Pie and coffee while we wait for the rain to stop

    Eye test -

    A Polish immigrant went to the DMV to apply for a driver's license. First, of course, he had to take an eye sight test The optician showed him a card with the letters


    'C Z W I X N O S T A C Z.' 'Can you read this?' the optician asked. 'Read it?' the Polish guy replied, 'I know the guy..

    Just kidding!

    Nice picture - I notice you edited out the bare feet and sneakers.

    Had a great ride - glad the topcase did not come loose along the way
    Part of one bracket was not in all the way for most of the ride up

    Curt -

    Yeah - running over your topcase might have ended this trip even earlier.

    Yeah I said to Curt in my driveway . . . hmmmm . . that Givi is kinda bouncy.
    Wouldn't that have been fun!

    Hey ya'all that really was a good ride. OK, my apologizes to Martin for no twisties up in the peninsula but did that merit the sudden urge for the hooks when he took point?! (Where are we goin'?!) Scared the H E double toothpicks outta me!
    Speaking of taking the point, was that pace alright for you guys heading home? Marcin, you and Martin would launch and run out about a half mile ahead of us and then you'd be doing 65 and then you'd run out again and after a while I was all like, OK, let's roll. So I banged on the cruise, set it at 80 sumpfin' and we we made some tracks in the dark. As long as it was 2 lane divided highway straight straight straight I figured . . . what the heck.
    Still some decent riding weather left, I run the F to Cycle Werks Saturday for a quick lube but have the rest of the day open, whataya say?

    Travel speed -

    I was merely remembering James' comment about the USMC being anti motorcycle and any tickets he got would get him into trouble.

    After he passed me, I was less concerned, however.
