Hi All

Just checking in to say hello.

Miss you all as social life (read friends and associated activities) around here is mostly non-existent.

I finally joined the work force again as a salesperson for the Carson City Subaru dealer. Lots to learn about product line, technologies etc. So far so good.

I'm off on Wednesdays and Thursdays. You might just see me at one of the HDDC events soon.

Best,
Raffy

Re: Hi All

HI Raffy!

I have not had a bike in 10 years, but still haunt this place. It was such a big part of my life for several years, just cannot give it up.

I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

Re: Hi All

So how great would it be to see David, Dick and Raffy in 'Nooga? Or at least next year in Toad Suck.

Re: Hi All

Memories of Dick doing registration in Gatlinburg, Raffy doing HID's and David doing gas cap conversions around the pool while Stick and I put together my Unigo on the other side of the pool in Santa Fe and watched some guy from Minnesota who blew a final drive on the way walking around in shorts and knee high motorscycle boots. I'm on the road on Monday.

Me too. Great memories of the few CCRs I wuz fortunate to have attended. At Gatlinburg, chairing registration with some great volunteers (and using pre-printed reg. forms that I carried to CCR in four, thick, 3-ring binders!). And hearing my first (and only) sound of Randy's Rune firing up and idling at a hunnert thou rpms!!! And getting halfway home to Boerne on a failed final drive; leaving ole Toad alone in a motel parking lot in Clinton, MS for a week 'til Grif and I could find the time to go git and haul it to Lone Star in Austin for a goodwill fix by BMW (didn't last long tho! ). Traveling with Grif & Sandy, Monte & Debby, Mike & Dorie - what a hoot! . And btw - Mike's LT lost it's final drive in Little Rock on the way to Gatlinburg; no fix due to time restraints, so traded for a new LT off the floor and on we go!!
Sorry to hijack the thread, Raffy. Got nostalgic there for a bit. Got more stories for Santa Fe, and Breckenridge, butt I digress!! And thanks for the memory trip, Jeff. Say hi to the olde pharts in Chattanooga for me.

Re: Hi All

Raffy we miss your smiling face also, and all the gatherings in your garage!

And personally I haven't really bought any big toys since you left. Nobody to wheel and deal with like you!

Enjoy Subaru you will do well.

If you aren't good for anything else, you can always serve as a bad example.

Re: Hi All

Hi Raffy.
Glad to see you around.
We're still on the other side of the world so a rain check on lunch.
Those tee's are in storage somewhere and haven't run out of the
panel screws yet. I'm obviously not loosing them fast enough !

Many thanks.
Take care
