Good weekend for me finally.
It's been a rough year trying to get the bike on the road. Between work, weather, weddings, and travel I just haven't been able to find the time to ride. To compound the problem all that time away (and my silliness) drained the battery... HOWEVER, a full charge to the battery revived its life, a beautiful weekend and a new client back in my home city means the world is right again! Soooo....
Went for a nice, quiet ride yesterday with WyseOne (if he still reads here...
) and met his GF (lovely girl) who is new to biking. We'll have her on the MSF course soon enough!
A bit of posing, saw a BEEEEEAUUUUTIFUL Ducati. Yum. Along with the regular riff-raff followed by some nice sites
on the way back through downtown. This morning, got up and totally blew my 9am meet with WyseOne but not to worry, we were both awake in time for 12:30pm. hehe... So what's 3.5 hours late? Found some great ramps and thanks to a new set of Titanium pucks from WyseOne, I was able to be all squidly and left some sparkies. haha, I know, squidly, on public ramps to boot but it was fun. Jay, thanks man, I owe you. After this fun, we had a LONG boring ride out to meet Maci4Life... dude... you GOT to move closer to the city. That poor baby sitting in your garage... *sigh*
Sorry, man, let me know if you need any help when the parts come in. Don't forget to wash the engine while you have the covers off. After shooting the chit with Maci for a while, I headed back for a local club BBQ... surprisingly I had a good, non-motorcycling time with them out by the pool. Some very interesting stories were told including Akshun's (another board) experience with a flaming katana. haha, Nothing like having your fuel tube come lose from the petcock, lighting on fire and spraying passing cars... apparently the dude was lighting cars on fire before he knew it... finally got pulled over and the fire out before the whole bike went up in a fireball. Crazy bastid dives on it with a sweatshirt to put it out... saves the whole bike without even damaging the fairings!
Anyway, interesting stories. A quick ride home just in time to be 2 hours late for my dinner date with the GF... sooo.... that brings me to part 2...
Ok... so I negotiated a Friday night of motorcycling... begged my way to a Saturday morning of riding then laid down the law for 2 hours free to go watch a Faster screening tomorrow. Hmmm.... lets see... Friday night ran overtime (6 hours instead of 3)... then today turned out to be longer than I thought and missed dinner... and the faster screening tomorrow overlaps with some plans I had with her tomorrow.... I am *SSOOOOOO* in the dog house. Anyone have ideas how to save my ass here?
<---- her me ---->
If I don't get off here soon, I'll be
