I don't have any money to buy the bikes (Merry Christmas to everyone ELSE!) but I can help you with the "Unridden" issue. Send them down here, I can exercise them for you. No extra charges, no hidden fees, all a personal favor to a friend.

I haven't written much lately due to being sidetracked with other things not motorcycle related.
I just wanted to add a note about Jack that I have mentioned several times. He is 72, or 73 and was on a trip covering the Oregon Trail. Jack had said this would probably be his last trip.
On Wednesday, while riding gravel in Idaho, he hit a deer and broke his pelvis in the crash. Yesterday while in the ICU he had a heart attack and passed away.
I rode with him and a couple other guys back in April doing gravel practice for the trip. I hit a dog that came out to greet us. Luckily, I only sprained my wrist. I am so glad that I at least got to get one ride in with him.

Sorry to hear about the death of your friend, even knowing he was doing what he enjoyed.

Mike, I am sorry for your loss. We never know how long we have and good riding partners are hard to find.

My Dad is going to be 71 in a week and he is still riding very well. I know I am fortunate to have him as a riding partner.

Hey Redfish,
What is this about you not having a cycle anymore? I am going to try and scope out the St. Louis - New Orleans portion of our Mississippi River bicycle ride sometime next summer. I was hoping we could get together for lunch or something.

He doesn't have an ST anymore...he still has a bike, but it's...ahem, an FJR.

Here's a link to my blog on the first half, from the Headwaters to St. Louis.

https://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/..._id=18330&v=Ax

We are planning on the 2nd half this coming October. I am going to try and ride the ST down and scope out part of the course this summer. If you are familiar with the back roads south of St. Genevieve I would be interested in talking.

That was a good "bike" report Mike, hope things are well, and maybe I'll get to see you on the road some day. I'm heading to the moonshine lunch run in April. Interested?

Have a good day, looking forward to your next installment.
Eddie

Eddie,
Tell me more about it. I have a friend in Maple Grove that may be interested too.
Mike
