Today's Run

It was cold but nearly perfect. All the the machines were faster than me. 180 miles. Thanks, Erik! The trip home after lunch was just warm enough that you could have some fun with Chas. He respects you immensely. He told me, whatever Erik did, I did. Is he fast? You guys were long gone with your games and I had to be real hot in the straights to keep up with you. Post the ride map so others can enjoy. Big, Big, Big thanks.

Doug, Chas thanks for a great days ride... And lunch. Coopers is one Goooooooooood BBQ place.

Chas did just fine.. I was riding at about 6/10's at most,, so plenty of reserve, and about right for the street,.. Really only play hard in the corners. See no need for top speed runs on public straight always. And even then only playing where it's me an the cows (well there was that one goat) that’s gona get hurt if things go wrong.

So the ride was 217 miles all together. For those in CENTEX that take this route... Keep in mind Park Road 4,, IS NOT a place to go fast and get caught speeding. ZERO tolerance, big fines, impound bikes, and dealing with the federal magistrate, or so I'm told (need to confirm that one)

Time line has moved to the left a few days, so I'm afraid that was the last ride. SH gets put up tomorrow of the next day... Dirt bikes the day after.

We'll talk along the way,,, and Get out for a ride when I pop in for mid tour leave.

Erik
