Well, some 6,000 miles in the last 30 days I feel safe in saying I am getting some seat time in.  On road, off road, off road racing, and training.  I can hardly wait for "Riding" season to get here :P  I am riding a 2014 Ultra this week so the pace is a bit differant :-[

Got six cords of wood (easy boys!) delivered today. Next year's heat is taken care of and there should be at least one, and hopefully two or more, cord left over to season for more than a year.

My brother traded his Allison bass boat for a 2010 FJR w/6,000 miles on it.  :)

Sweet! Now I'll finally have someone to ride with.  :thumbs:

He hasn't owned a bike since he had some woman make a left turn in front of him and he ended up in a coma for two weeks. That must have been 20 years or more ago. He wasn't wearing a helmet at the time. He says that he'll never ride without one now.

He wanted a C14 but he couldn't find anyone who wanted to trade for his boat. He was a bit bummed that I have the faster bike.   :)

Was it floating or on the bottom of the lake or river? I mean hey, if you are trying to trade a boat that won't float, you don't think you're going to do better than an FJR, do you?

Good luck to your brother on the new ride and the very best of luck with it- they really are nice bikes of course.

Thanks Brian! His boat still floated just fine, and looked great, It was his souped-up motor that belonged at the bottom of the river. When it ran, it RAN. I was in it a few years ago, just the two of us, when he reached 125mph (via GPS). That boat sits VERY low in the water and 125 felt crazy fast in that thing! He was spending way too much money keeping that motor running.

Well, at least it is one of the faster colors.  Not as fast as our 08s, of course, but still fast.

I have jury duty today.  :(

On the plus side, the county courthouse is 45 mins away, it's a VERY scenic ride, and it's going to be 65 and sunny today.  :)
