So when I was Sgt. one of my guys wrote a "DRE" paper (Drug Recognition Expert) and he did a find and replace as he misspelled "evaluation" and it replaced with "ejaculation" through out the entire paper and he sent it off to the State Police Major in charge, Via fax.... LOL...

So "Givi" outback trekker in aluminum, 37 L. I was gonna wait til Friday to put them on, but was so pumped I could not sleep. So I went out in my PJ's and got em on in 22 min. I timed it as I heard they were easy..... they are. Really nice.....

Just need my title so I can ride... thats coming Fed Ex tomorrow.... WOOOOT.

That always seems to happen to me too. There is nothing worse than wasting a day waiting for a shipment that never comes.

But you got it now right? All Set? WOOT!!!

My FedEx guy gave me a stack of door tags. I just sign one and leave it stuck to my door. He just leaves the parcel on the porch, but I do live in a rural area so there isn't a cavalcade of miscreants marching up and down in front of my house.

There was a box from Italy waiting for me when I got home as well.

Yep I have it, but I had to cancel the VIN inspection that a Trooper was coming by to do, and will have to take even more time off work, ti,e I could be using for motor trips, to go to DMV, all of which I was going to do today, as the Next Day Priority was stated to be delivered by 10:00....

It's just upsetting because there is nothing you can do.....

I am foreseeing some issue with DMV to at this point, it just has to go wrong as well. Frustrating that I will make the first payment on the bike before I ever get to ride it....

My woe of the day is waiting for my Gimbal to be returned from South Korea, it has been there 3 weeks for repairs and they finally agreed to ship me a replacement instead of fixing the one sent. It is supposed to ship tomorrow (Friday), but it is already 12:30PM Friday over there and no shipping notifications yet, so now I don't know when they will ship it. Will it get shipped by end of day Friday? How long will it take to get here? will it work when it arrives? So many questions.

But we move forward one day at a time and see what we get right? Nothing else we can do.
