Sounds good to me.  I like butterflies.
What, gonna leave us in suspense?  Google did mention something in Hindi, but didn't think Jim spoke Hindi.  Could be wrong....

What did I do today? Went on a ride with my dad, got rained on about 30 minutes on the way back, but that's eastern NC for you. But then I got to test out my Canyon Cages!  ::) Haha, left the bike in my driveway which is packed gravel, normally good to go. Apparently it rained a lot more than I thought and when I went outside I found a Concours on it's side! Cages worked great, nothing else touched the ground, and I was easily able to raise it back up grabbing the cage and the handlebars.  ;D

Might be something he picked up on the Silk Road on the way to Outremer.

I do have a pic but first more beer and a steak...trying Blue Moon.   Tastes pretty good with the orange slice in it.

Not that there's anything wrong with that....

Actually on 4-8-15 at Bastrop state park, TX, camping for MotoGP.   :)

Noticed the night before in LA a headlight was out.
Had an aftermarket HID kit.
No names because it was an ok kit with great customer service!
Get used to two headlights and having only one sucks! 
Especially if the light ain't going where it should.

Anywho, in about 45 minutes, tore the bike down and pulled the HID system and plugged the sockets with Sylvania H4 Ultra Super-Duper-Blah-Blah-Blah    ;)

Love it!
Sorry, the dumpster containg the HID got cleared the next morning.  :D

No pictures, it didn't happen?   :P
It did.
Too irritated, and darkness coming, to horse around!   8)

No sweat.  You got to watch MotoGP, and that's what really counts.  I remember going to TransAm and Inter Am MX races in the early 70s.  Nothing else mattered, than watching and shooting pictures of the world's best, DeCoster, Gabores, Ake, Hikki, etc, and Americans Tripes, Hannah, etc.  Had to be there to understand the thrill.  Burned out lights was just a side note, right..... tp

Rode down to Norfolk to do a job this morning and then rode back (after seeing Max, of course)...couple of hundred miles or so.  Traffic was backed up 6 miles to HRBT so I turned around went the long way to the other tunnel (MM).  Traffic was a bi*** so I got off on 17 and went north from there.


The HRBT is almost always a nightmare :(  I hate it, it makes traveling such a PITA.

Had a city light go out.  Saw what Max had and I think I'm going to do the same once he tells me what he got for his bike.

Looks like they have a newer version now too:  http://www.vleds.com/shop-bulb-numbers/194-168-158-led/6-hv.html  which are $5 more and they claim are even brighter than the ones I used.

No, that is a pair.  $25 for the ones I have, $30 for the newer model.

There is no pleasing you, is there?  :)  If you get the others, it is $12.50 for one.  Considering you will [theoretically] never have to replace them again, that isn't too bad (although it isn't great either).

No, there isn't.  Ask my wife.  I think I'm going to try long life 194 amber bulbs and see what they look like first.
