For years, I've hurried home on Thursdays to get the grass mowed for the weekend. Now, I might mow on a Tuesday morning or a Saturday afternoon.

Why? because I can ...

WooHoo!

I think that defines most of us on this board. However, a true slacker will give in rather than punch in at work.

Re: Anyone wanna slack on Thursday? 10/11

Retired is nice. Sort of like having plenty of time for everything. Much different than worrying about when I can do this or that. Plus, if a slacker ride pops up, I can finally go on one. The seat concepts seat needs a workout and I will try shaming Mitch into riding the gravel stuff on his "adventure bike". Even though it is really clean right now and his chain is perfectly cleaned and lubricated.

Here is a pic of the chop house wait staff taking our picture

That's the back of Ron's head.

A few roads Mary led us on I'd never been on. And what a fabulous day for a ride.

Cutting across Rough Creek Ranch was interesting

Re: Anyone wanna slack on Thursday? 10/11

I did not speed.....
I did not wheelie....
I rode conservatively......
We did do some dirt roads and a tiny water crossing (really a wet spot)

enjoyed it, great route Mary and the Chicken Fried Steak was awesome.

P.S. I cannot say how much fun the FZ1 was between Cranfills Gap and Iredell. Incredible ride, very nice toy.

Re: Anyone wanna slack on Thursday? 10/11

That is so wrong. Luckily I was riding in the back so there is no evidence. I can't believe Ron hasn't posted up his food pics. Think he is smarting over being corrected about his phone usage?
