new year

Happy New Year to everyone in our community! I hope 2012 is a good year for all of us.

Am I the only one sitting here in front of the computer awake and sober? Looking at the live feed from downtown Charlotte, there are lots of people who look like they've had several too many!

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying " I'll try again tomorrow".

No Lee, you're not the only one in front of the PC! Of course it has not hit us on the west coast just yet, but since it has back there, HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Re: new year

Happy New Year! We stayed up to see the ball drop in time square. What was I thinking? 65 degrees today. I know where I'll be this afternoon. :-)

Thanks guys for the great pic's of the RTE. I have to say that's the first time, I ever saw Dave for a lost for words.

Re: new year

Happy New Year!!!!! WOW! I thought I just heard the weatherman say it was gonna be 70 here in Fayetteville, NC. My wife and I spent the last day of 2011 on the LT. Looks like the first day of 2012 may be spent the same way. Ride to church and then who knows.

Have a safe and blessed new year everyone.

Re: new year

Hope all your young-ns enjoyed New Years Eve! I was in bed at 10:30 and slept soundly right on into 2012. Having lived through 72 New Years Eves I no longer seem to have the desire to stay up all night. Although I still enjoy the occasional adult beverage I'll leave the all night partying up to you young folks. Anyway-

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YA'LL!!

I just noticed your post time. SALUTE! I wish I could still do that. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. (sigh)

Re: new year

Happy new year, everyone.

We joined other riders for a day trip down to the Hocking Hills in SE Ohio for lunch, then a nice ride back. 53 degrees and only a few sprinkles is great weather, considering what it could have been doing today.

Re: new year

Just got back from a great New Year's Day ride with Dayle. Popped down PCH to Malibu for a glorious sunset, then twisted over Mulholland/Decker Canyon in the twilight, and dropped into Thousand Oaks to our favorite sushi place before meandering back home to the hot tub.

Gotta love SoCal in January.

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...

Hey Ken, Happy New Year! But that can't possibly be your LT. It looks so clean! And it has the mirrors installed Have you changed that much? Or is this an impersonator claiming to be the real Meese?

It does look like good 'ole Mauve, but it has the LT mirrors on and the RS mirrors off. Definitely too clean to be Ken's!
Happy New Year!
