It Wouldn't Be A Road Trip

IF I didn't drop the damn bike at least once..

Kickstand sunk in softer than I thought earth.. About a minute after I got off of it and shook the bike to determine that it would be ok...

Kerplop... Oh well...

Did 350 miles in the rain out to Springfield Mo, To meet up with the wife who was attending Spyderfest.. 65 when I left Oklahoma, 48 and raining miserably when I arrived in Springfield...

On the way home was another matter.. I plotted a course which included AA,Aa,M. U, 248,76,90, And several other roads thru the National Forest.. I found myself giggling out loud several times.. Those roads in Missouri are fun... I hate it that they're so far away but Damn, I had me some fun.....

The RT is an amazing curve carver.. Even better than the LT in my humble opinion...

I had to stop maybe ten times to let Lindy catch up on the Spyder... She wasn't as abitious as I was... Third gear was perfect for most of these roads 45mph entry and who knows where you're coming out... I gotta do that more often. I forgot how much fun it was..

I'm thinking Peckergnat reunion at the Hub.. Whay say ye ?
