Condolences, tomp. :grouphug: Not easy to accept and/or talk about. Lost my wife last summer and feel guilty about getting back on the bike this spring without her. Looking forward to lots of therapy this summer, I think.
  Thanks and I understand that.  The losses we all encounter must be endured or will consume us.  My wife left me for a wealthier man who made promises, nine years ago.  The loss was overwhelming for a long time, but the past is finally behind me now.  As long as you want her to, your wife will be with you on your rides, there in your heart.

Thanks, guys.  Have to be at work at 6AM.  First time riding the 14 in night time conditions.  Guess I'll see how good the lighting is.  A great day to all.  tomp

Lost my dad yesterday, to a brief yet fatal illness.  He was 98.  Went for a windy, solo, reflective ride,  for a few hours.  Got home and still needed the road, so I went out on the Dyna for a good while longer.  Guess I needed more reflection time than I thought.  Riding is therapeutic, for sure.  A good week to all.   tomp

Thanks guys. Now back to our regularly scheduled program.
Forecast this week to warm up and rain. Wash the road grime (sand) off and let's get riding. :banana

Ride to work tomorrow, then suppose to rain for the next 6-7 days.  At least I get tomorrow, even if it is to work.  tp

Nice warm day here yesterday. On my way home from work seen probably 20 bikes, I was going for a ride. Then I got home to this.

Dang it. I hate when they do that. Last year they had the street in front of my house torn up , filled in and torn up again all summer. they were nice enough to build a gravel ramp from the excavated road up to the lane way( Access to my garage, parking pad.
the worst was waking up the morning we were leaving for our family vacation to the lake Towing our Boat. they had removed the gravel ramp. After a few pleasant words with the excavator operator the ramp was put back and we were happily on our way.

The sad part is the road that they repaved is now a Put holed uneven mess. :-\

On a positive note... I'm riding my Bike to work today!!!!!!

Painted my mirror housings with Rustoleum bed liner. I have to paint my lower fairings this week, I am torn between the bed liner and catalyzed matte black.   :feedback:

Bedliner should look/do well!


I like the idea.

Ride safe, Ted
