Re: Weekly Piney Woods BBQ lunch

My guess is it's a Gold Wing. Just don't park it in Chuck's garage.

Re: Weekly Piney Woods BBQ lunch

Nada Harley! I don't think anything else will fit in Chuck's garage.

So, here's the deal. I have a 2004 Wing. I really enjoy that bike, even one up. Have ground down two sets of pegs. I bought the BMW used from a friend and the next day took off on the Wing for 2 1/2 weeks into the Midwest. So the new bike just sat in the garage. I have bonded with my Wing and will probably not get rid of it even with 130,000 miles.

So far the BMW seems to have what I am looking for, but it will take a little riding to understand what I have.

I saw 100 deg F on the bike thermometer on the way home.

Re: Weekly Piney Woods BBQ lunch

I ran into Phil this morning as he was leaving the inspection place in town. He mentioned the lunch, but I had to get the bike inspected and get to work. It was about 10:45am or so. It was already HOT and crazy humid! Have I mentioned lately how much I HATE the humidity...?

Re: Weekly Piney Woods BBQ lunch

Must confess I broke my rule, already had this setup and tried riding the bike, just couldn't stand the pain. I've ridden the street bike a couple of times but had done some crawling around work this morning and the knee just wasn't happy. So I took a car to a ride to eat. (:

You get a pass when you drive a z51. That counts!
