    I would still be riding if i could get my bike out! I will be in Texas in march, maybe I will stop by to give you a swift kick in the rear for making me jealous... just kidding, Have fun riding, I will start catching up in spring.

    I had a great time at the meeting, I went to dinner with Chris, Jackie and some others. I am glad I know how to plug a tire now. I almost got my bike out but it died in the mud, haven't been able to move it out all the way. I was just in a car accident today, I don't know if I will be able to ride. A drunk man fell into the street, thought he was dead, not very fun to see but I didn't hit him.

    Unhappy car wreck

    A homeless man fell into the road on division under the railroad bridge, I had to hit the brakes to avoid him, and got rear ended. He looked dead at first, but turned out to be okay. My neck hurts but my shoulders are getting better already. The gal who hit me had no insurance.... there goes my tax return.

    Smile thank you

    I have a little truck to use, and I pulled my beemer out of storage so I have transportation. It is quite cold on my motorcycle, I will have to wait til it's in the 40's to ride.

    Hi everyone,
    I've been a member for a couple of years, but am still new to posting here. Staciebug, that must have been really nerve wracking! Glad you're OK.

    I live in VT and I decided to take my RT in yesterday (2/27) for the annual service (still under warranty) while the roads and my driveway were ice free. The temp was around 42F, had gotten to 50F earlier, it was now dark, raining and the crosswind was blowing an honest 50mph! Not as hairy as what most of you have done, but for a returning newbie it was wild!

    That was the first of many rides of the year.
    Cheers!

I know we will be doing some riding on Hwy 127 & 68 as IÔÇÖve been told those were great historical roads to travel. IÔÇÖm looking for any information of places we shouldnÔÇÖt miss, any suggested routes; great out of the way places to eat, etc. Also what kind of weather should we expect in mid May? Any information would be appreciated. Thanks!
    I have not ridden the tour on my bike but have visited many of the sites, be sure to include Makers Mark, Buffalo Trace & Woodford Reserve (Brown Foreman)
