Had to think about the word a while.  Gotta love the interweb...  Your play on words was great and appropriate...

and you have no idea how much "fun" it is to learn it as a second language

Education is important. Riding my bike is importanter.

English is a nightmare language.... but there is worse!   Yet the payback is good.

Today, I road mine in the rain, and put it up wet! This weekend, I'm prepping it for the Winter slumber.

Rode mine to work and back home.  At lunch, I took a small trip to Harbor Freight and picked up some Nitrile gloves.
Planning to ride to Cripple Creek and Victor, CO and back on Saturday.

Looked at mine today.  Would love to ride to work, but the roads I have to travel are highly congested and down right sacry during rush hours.  Hopefully a ride on Sunday will happen. Luckily, we can ride all year, so no winter storage required. 

 A great weekend to all here.  tomp

sadly on Wednesday night after my ride home from work I filled her gas tank and parked her for what could be the winter. She will be getting a pipe and cruise while resting during the new England winter in the garage.

Ive already got PMS bad and it is only Friday!

Yesterday and today I worked on installing my Rivco pegs on my Canyon cages. I had originally purchased the clamps to mount them on the bars, but I wasn't so impressed on how they would look and was concerned with how well they would stay in place. So I fabricated some brackets.

Sure rub it in, but I wouldn't trade 8 months on twisty roads for 12 months on flat roads.....sorry. Besides with the heat in july/august in FLA I would have to ride inside with the AC on!

Don't worry I will make it the next few months, its high season for ATV's up here.

BTW...how do you like the canyon cages?

Yeah you got me on the curvy road thing.

I had mixed feelings about the Canyon Cages before I even ordered them. I really wanted Top Block bars, but the price scared me away. Unfortunately since I have had the CC on, my bike had been on its side (dont ask how). These cages completely saved the side of my bike. The look of them has since grown on me and I can actually say the I like the looks now.
