Default Re: A Las Vegas Quickie

I was in Las Vegas last week for work. Saw a red ST11 heading North out of town on highway 95. top box, looked well cared for. Was trying to figure out who owned it, but just went past. I was in a POS Sentra wagon (rental). Don't ever buy one of those. Junk from front to rear bumper. Didn't even get great mileage.

Red, When my wife wouldn't follow me on the gravel road near Moab I told her that I understood. On a bike if you are headed for a cliff you can bail and let the bike go over, in a car you can't. She didn't think that was funny. I was serious.

I wish mine looked 'well cared for', I guess that comes from leaving it outside at work daily.

Practiced loading it today. I am going to prepare for light camping, just in case. I went through my tools since I don't need SAE ones anymore.

It's getting close. 10-day forecast is still favorable.

Hot damn, it works! I couldn't do it from my old one and I don't have to resize them either.

Shoot, 10mpixels. That's what riding to work in the rain does.

I will not lie. Mine is just as dirty and from the same thing. Riding to and from work in the rain somehow makes the bike dirtier than riding on vacation in the rain.

Is that a compass, on the left side of your windshield?
