Three Beemers sitting at a Red Light

During CCR, I went for a ride with two amigos. Tom Gallo on his LT with a Florida license plate. David Taylor on his LT with a California plate. And myself on the GT with an Ohio plate. The thought occurred to me how strange that would look to someone waiting behind us at a red light. Or a LEO perhaps. The LEO would probably have to pull us over just to get our story. I also had to wonder just how many times that could happen with ... say 3 Harleys. Probably not too often.

You just reminded me, a nice older couple brought that up in the parking lot at Jackson Lake Lodge. They noted all different states and then asked where we parked all the trailers. I explained nicely how it all worked in moto-land...

I wonder what folks were thinking at Shirley's Soul Food when we showed up there and joined the other 2-3 LTs from even more states?!? That woman's food sure draws a crowd!

The shortest distance between two points is for people who don't ride!

SO and I were up in Canada recently on the GT. A bunch of local HD folks were shocked to see us romping around. We met in the valet garage at the hotel. They sure were curious about this USA GT thing we rode up on. They about died when I popped the bags off the GT and we walked in to the hotel to check in. Next morning the only thing left from the HD's was the spots on the garage floor!

More than 132,000 (recently corrected higher) motorcycle riders have died in traffic crashes since the enactment of the Highway Safety Act of 1966 and The National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966. Be careful out there.

hmmmmmm

I spent a few years as a narcotics officer, spent a few more teaching courses like "concealment areas within vehicles" and (before it was politically incorrect) criminal patrol drug interdiction (basically, profiling). Basically, if you were a drug runner, you'd want a 3 year old average car (like a civic or a taurus), perfect running order, make sure you don't exceed the speed limit, don't have maps or fast food wrappers visible, use your turn signals, etc.

Trend a few years later was to use retiree-age people in winnebagos, or what looked like families to transport, sometimes those were discovered by separating the "parents" and the "kids" then asking one of the children "where's your dad?" to which the "rent-a-kid" might reply "back in Miami, officer."

But it just occurred to me that a flock of LT's could move a lot of dope and never for a second be considered as drug mules...replace the CE-approved armor with raw heroin, hollow out the cannisters, fill the side bags, pack the fairings...

I wonder if I can liquidate my 401(k)...anyone interested in a get rich quick plan?

I AM KIDDING!!!!!!

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
