Lol! No. Figured i might wait for a chance of some brand wearing kickbacks. Free stuff and sponsorship maybe? No. I actually pulled them today. Kinda wish i didn't now, but they were just too much for me.
Thanks

You aint lyin! That drive through houston was... Well, no words for it. Coming back wasn't too bad though.
Thats a long way home with a new ride on the hitch hauler and all you can think about is wanting to ride it. :/

I have no idea what they said, but they were BOLD.

I don't really sticker my bikes up too much.

Eyes glued to the inside mirror, looking at your new bike, ain't no way to negotiate H-Town!

Was down thataway a while back, collecting bike goodies in Cypress, then over to Gal-VES'-ton (as a college classmate, a gal from there, pronounced it, back in the Dork Ages) to collect more farkles. Timed it as badly as possible - took TWO AND A HALF HOURS to get to Pasadena! Aarrrggghhhhh!

Not too bad Thursday evening, after the hordes had crashed and been towed away (truth: didn't see a single accident, but it was, like, 9P), getting 'cross town from N. of Katy to P'dena. But it was much better getting outta there at 0545 the next morning, and it was a lovely sunrise.

I did the same. Rush hour on arrival, free flowing afterward around 9pm starting back. Its like dang NASCAR though there though! Its no wonder there are so many wrecks. I wanted to stay the night and head to galVES ton, but i didn't know the area and didn't want to leave the bike loaded on the hauler unsupervised. Nothing to worry about until you buy something new to you. Oh well. Next time.
