The election is over

We have a new President-elect. He takes office on January 20.

There is absolutely no reason for politics to dominate this forum any more.

Please do us all a favor and give it a rest.

If you have concerns or suggestions there is a contact page on the new administration's website.

We can get back to talking about motorcycles and generally having fun. I'm hopping on my GS and riding to Dallas next week for the Cycle World Motorcycle show. I hear the show is a little lame, but the company will be great.

We're beginning to plan for the next CCR and our first Ride to Jasper.

Nice little 600 mile ride up, maybe 1300 overall for the overnighter.

1st trip on the LT since her 24k and Annual Services at 110,000 sMiles
Don't make me jealous. I haven't had an LT in a couple of seasons and Michelle and were both reminiscing on how much we enjoyed and kinda miss the old gal.

Re: The election is over

Greetings and well said...........you two have been a major player in this forum and I enjoy your posts..............Have a previous matter to deal with this week-end and good Lord willin' and the creek don't rise maybe I can load up on the LT this next week...........I'm down to a pile of paper work to wade through by the first of Feb. but I just know I can get a little more riding in to keep that silly smile working on my mug............If the 'Hoback Canyon' doesn't get too froze over maybe the pillion and I can run to the 'Virginian' up in Jackson for a prime rib sandwich and glass of wine...............

enjoy your rides......................and do B-Safe out there; Jim

Oh, why not?

Just kidding. I am heading off to Dallas on the GS Thursday AM. 800 miles of decompressing from work, politics, finance, etc. Thursday cannot come soon enough.

Rats butt. I have to wait till Friday. Since I went to Dallas last weekend, too, will that count as 800 miles?

Damn' Southerners. Florida. Texas. Yada-yada.
Winterized my LT last weekend. However, this year's summer ( July 19 - July 24) made for some great rides. Enjoyed all three immensely.
Grrrr... (or Brrrr....)
