It has a deeper layer of dust on it now.

That's such a waste... Never thought that I wouldn't be able to get down there for so long...

Really disappointed that it's gonna require such an extensive restauration...

Well, we didn't abuse it, we just neglected it. If it had had insurance on it, I would have ridden it. But uninsured, no way.

Not something that I'll debate here... Suffice to say that I did not know how the insurance down there worked for someone who didn't live in NC and only wanted brief periods of coverage and just seemed too complicated to set up. So I didn't do dick...

It's my problem...

Re: Screwed up...

I went down to visit my good friend Cousi last week. Longest trip I've been on in a long time...


4 hours.





I wasn't too uncomfortable during the ride but getting off the bike was somewhat stiff.


I do expect to be riding more as I've installed some aluminum panniers to the V-Strom.


That's a crucial step!


But I'm more and more having a good time driving one of the convertibles. Plus the fact that I don't have to wear goretex when the skies start dumping on me...


That's a good thing!


Now, I need a bigger garage...




Cheers
