I'd rather be riding than not..

It's been crazy busy at the shop lately, and i've had a hard time making ride time..

tonight i got out and headed over the Gap to eat with some friends in Robbinsville. it was rainy and the trip back in the dark was rain and fog through the mountains with very little trafic and crappy conditions.. I made two quick pitstops where there were people, and they thought I was nuts to be out in it

And Ron/Cyclenerds words reminded me that it's all worth it...

I'd Rather be riding than not!
If loud pipes save lives, imagine what learning to ride that thing could do!

I'd insert something witty here, but just don't have it at the moment.. add bourbon and please stand by!

Guess you didn't get hit too bad if you got out. We had a tornado destroy the local area. I did get out one day while the local and state constables were "busy"........hehe.
(See thread, What did you do to your FZ today)
Good on you for getting away.
Don't know why they call it Hamburger Helper, stuff does just fine by itself........

Some guys are taken way sooner than they should've been.

RIP, Ron.

Swapped the '05 FZ1 for an '17 Ariens 28 Deluxe.
