10 Years Ago We Lost a Friend

The 10 year anniversary of hurricane Katrina has been on the news the last couple of days. While a horrible disaster, it also reminds me of another sad time here. This is also the 10 year anniversary of the death of Scott Thompson (Yahooboy). I've gone back and read the posts relating to his death a...

Pack your guns, the 2016 Bash will be in Waco

Motorcycle groups in that area of the country need to learn how to act. Instead of shooting each other in the parking lot we were resetting service reminders and syncing throttle bodies. Learning how to perform maintenance on our motorcycles and eating gelato, that's how we roll. Sure, we have the o...

Rusty and I are heading that way. We'll leave the Nashville area in a couple of hours. We should be there before dark.

Re: Who's Tire Pressure Recommendations Do I Follow?

From my research the following is the basic rules I use for proper tire inflation: Never go below the minimum recommended pressure from the bike manufacturer and never go above the maximum recommended pressure from the tire manufacturer. The tire pressure should rise 8% to 12% from a cold reading to...

Re: 2014 Bash - May 16-18, 2014 - Mt. Airy, NC

Weather reports are shaping up for a wet ride for me coming up on Thursday. Anyone else going to be there Thursday night? My friend Rusty and I will be heading that way on Thursday. Looks like we'll be wet as well. We're planning to take highways 321 to 421 to 601 on the way there. I don't know wha...

Re: 2014 Bash - May 16-18, 2014 - Mt. Airy, NC

There will be someone riding from the Nashville area with me. I prefer no one suggest we're a 'couple'. We're not. He'll be on a Honda. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Jeff, by the way, the Bash in TN was in Harriman not Maryville.

Here's hoping for some good weather!

Re: Hungry Mother 2013 is August 09-11

It was rain free until I was about a mile from the house. Then it poured. I was soaked..... Nevertheless, I had a great time. I hope to see everyone again next year.

Re: Hungry Mother 2013 is August 09-11

That bike didn't fall; it was pushed. Most likely by a bitter camper who couldn't sleep in the inhumane conditions of a camp ground. I understand the anger which drove the camper to that point. However, there is some progress here. It shows the disgruntled camper is evolving. Hopefully this year he/...

Re: Hungry Mother 2013 is August 09-11

Anyone familiar with the area enough to recommend a motel/hotel in close proximity? I could really use a trip like this but don't have any interest in sleeping on the ground or anywhere close to it. I know how you feel Chris. I may go, but I'm sleeping on a mattress. Last time I went I stayed at th...

Re: 2013 Beakster Bash, May 16-19, Marietta, OH

I'm back home safe and sound. Ran through 3 downpours on the way home, but they were short lived. I didn't put on my rain gear for any of them. My jacket and I both needed a shower. Had a great time as usual. If not for urbandictionary.com I wouldn't have understood anything the Jersey Boys were say...

Re: Spotted in KY Today

I ran through some heavy rain between Richmond and Morehead KY. Just light rain and some wet roads after that. Temperatures are near perfect though. Planning breakfast in Amesville, stop at the dealer in Athens, lunch at Hillbilly Hotdogs, and maybe the Mothman Museum tomorrow.

Spotted in KY Today

Passed a red 1150R in Kentucky today on my way to the Beakster Bash. I think it was on state route 82 during the rain. You were making good time, but you were going in the wrong direction. The bash is in Marietta OH!

You're probably right Van, but that's going to be real disappointing. At least there's breakfast there that I can enjoy.
