    Amen! You may not get there faster, but I think you get there happier!

    Sorry I missed you and Paul at B-cubed... I only stayed about 15 minutes because I had to head up the road.

    Question Red Stripe?

    My only question is:

    Did you drink that stuff voluntarily?

    Even I would pass on that one. I may be cheap, but I ain't dumb. There is such thing as bad free beer.

    Our barn raising was this week

    As a follow up to the story, here is a couple snaps of our barn's timberframe completely set up (or erected, as they say in the biz...) heh heh... he said wood!

    Here's a history of the project to date.

    Great!

    What a great journal with outstanding photography. Here I sit with my first cup of coffee this morning needing a little motorcycle story to start my day and bang, up comes your journal and I'm right there with you. I really like your writing style and enjoyed the Fla. Pics very much. Ride safe and keep posting these great stories.

    Atfter looking at your pictures, I am interested in going next year. How far south would I have to drive to get out of snow before rolling the bike off the trailer and finishing the trip on two wheels?

    BUMP

    If there's anyone planning a ride to Bike Week, this is the way I usually go.

    Beats the dickens out of the slab.
