Wow guys, I'm flattered! There must be some reason that I am still a single woman though. Let's recheck things... Gainfully employed, homeowner, cooks, cleans, rides. It must be the old age.

You are kidding yourself.  We know how great you look.  Remember, you posted a  self portrait. Us old guys are just wishing and praying, that's all.  So few ladies like you out there any longer.  My future includes Me, and only me; well maybe my kitty, too.  My mother is recently gone.  My dad is in hospice, soon to be gone.  All but two cousins are gone.  Only one aunt left.  The fun decades of my past life have been replaced with the grim/dismal future of old age and what???  Sorry, it's been a really BAD week for me.   Nicole, don't worry.  You still have decades of fun left... tomp

ELP, Glad to hear that you are doing well enough to at least go for a 10 mile ride.
I feel like normal, so I'd ride every day if it was up to me :). Or if it was smart, rather. My problem is I have basically zero white blood cells and platelets, so I can catch anything from the air (especially being mostly dirt here, and windy almost every day), and could bleed to death with even a minor cut. In fact, my immune system is so low I can catch any infection from my own body's bacteria, and that's exactly what happened yesterday, that I almost ended up in the ER since my temperature got extremely close to my limit of 100ºF. My immune system will get even weaker since I have 2 chemos left, and will have to deal with more infections and hospital visits in the next 2 months. After that, will be out of danger of not finishing the treatment. Therefore, will be a good (and smart) boy, not take unnecessary risks, and don't ride again to maximize chances of making it these critical next few weeks. Thank you for all the good wishes again.

My ex wife left me after 28 years for a supposed better life, with another man (who had more money).  Shortly after, she got large B cell non Hodgkins lymphoma.  She made it through four months + of chemo, and has now now been cancer free for over 18 months.  Ex-Wife or not, I don't wish any thing like "C" on anyone.   I pray  all is healed for you and you have decades of life and joy ahead.   tomp

FWIW, lost my mother to colon  cancer a while back.  Don't wish that on anyone, period.  tp

Yesterday I got the receptical for the XM wired in. Properly. Got the exhaust mounted. Properly. Also replaced one of the coolant hoses for the oil cooler.

Started the center stand mod to clear the Muzzy exhaust system. Should get that and more done today.

There was a spot where it had a small cut. It looked like it may have been against the fairing or something. It wasn't really bad but I spend a lot of time crossing the desert and it can be a long way to the nearest gas station.

That hose looks like a problem waiting to happen any moment. Good eye on catching it early.

Went for a test ride today to see how well the camping gear will handle highway+ speeds.
