I cain't hardly see
« on: November 15, 2009, 10:18:46 PM »
...through my tears of joy.  (Is that a C&W song title, or what?)

70 degrees today.  A little tape got my buzz fixed and it was just me, the wind, and my valves.  Coming up on my first year and 6400 miles so far;  this thing is just now broken in.  So smooth I couldn't hardly believe it.  Like a Swiss butter churn down there- tippity tippity tippity tippity tippity.

Too bad for you schmoes up North.   :P

 ;D  ;D  ;D  ;D  ;D

Now- Poertland is one fine city.  Folks are a little too friendly;  the first time I went there, I got paranoid.  Never had pretty girls say "HI" before.  Nice architecture, and salmon jerky.  Love it there.   The weather will pick up soon, but you know that if you've been there any time. 
Terrific area to ride a BB.

It was so damn nice up here in Cape Cod Mass. this afternoon I took the Bullet back to work after lunch. About 62 degrees, sunshine and not a breath of wind. Real Schmoo weather.
