185 miles yesterday (down to LBI and back) on the new ride. I love this bike!

Oh yeah and I've been out of town 17 of the last 30 days. If it seems like I've been off the grid the last few weeks, I have.

Yes, it's my mid-life crisis.

Lousy pic, but leaving a gas stop. Great roads, great people, great ride.

BTW, that's a typical crowd. Behind me was my friend Ron on his Vstrom 1k. There was a vast variety of hardware: Cruisers, sports bikes, standards, dual sports, motards, even a few Harleys. BMW/Suzuki/Harley/Aprilia/Kawasaki/more. There is no brand snobbishness, everyone is there to ride. We sort ourselves out by pace, not type of bike. I'm usually at the tail end of the fast group. But when the road gets goaty, me and Ron leave everyone behind!

The journey is the destination.

No, we are riding and working and trying to get all we can out of what may be the last gasp of wonderful weather for this years riding season.

I have been working a lot lately. Lot of changes at my day job and I do not want to be one of them. I am staying off at work for a while.

Exactly as I had hoped, and how it should have been, but I just wanted to revive and stir things up a bit, seems to have worked.........

Dang EQ, how many riders in that gaggle...??? I don't think I would be happy ridin with that many folks... I remember jumping in on "The Trail of Tears" ride 5 or 6 years ago an it was 80 mph then 3 mph then 80, I only rode about 25-30 miles and cut out and left...lol...

Yep VJ, no sense in stickin your head in the noose, stay clean jobs are not too easy to find these days, unless you live in China...lol...

Well it looks like a couple of very good days here before any rain, so I'll be doin a bit of ridin myself, I'll see if the wife wants to ride a bit, and see how the passenger pillion on the new Mustang seat works out for her... If she don't think it is a big improvement over the stock seat, I may sell the Mustang and put the original seat back on, she seldom rides anyway, and the Mustang seat was a very minimal if any improvement for me...
Have a good one...Old Dog...
