    That reminds me...I just got home from a 500 mile weekend roundtrip on my GS and forgot to thank the bike when I pulled into the garage. Excuse me, I have to go make amends...

    Sorry Ed.

    On the plus side, I posted how we don't have any money and my wife and I never fool around anymore.
    Woo hoo!

    Yesterday, I posted about how well my free craigslist car is running. Today it died at the stop-light.. in front of my manager. Had to pop-start it.

    Some wire needs wiggling. Just gotta figure out which one.

    I'm thinking that's just your reward for posting at advrider.

    Surely you jest. Not only is that forum a plethora of information from the mundane to the fascinating, but it has 1000x the activity of this forum.

    I'm not jesting, and please don't call me Shirley.



    Yes, I was definitely kidding. I'm over there as well, just under a different name. And yes, there are a lot of good posters and good information over there.

    Crazy Drummer Dude . . .

    Good to see you here, but. . .

    SOME of us crave the latest news from your amazing barn. Yeah, yeah, re-located, new job, free Craiglist car. . .GOT IT! Still, the world needs to know how a guy can take what appears to be an airhead salvaged from downtown Kabul, then use a few feet of duct-tape and maybe a spot-weld or two, and then ride the damn thing across the country.

    That guy is YOU. . .

    Seriously, hope all is well with you and yours in the new location.

    Big Fan,

    Walking Eagle
