There's your mistake. Never visit relatives.

Bummer, I hear you. I haven't ridden the bike in over a week, I dunked it in a swamp last weekend. At least you get a vacation, all I got was a long list of work to do on the bike.

LOL Steve- hey we just got back from a trip to the Adirondacks (NICE place to ride and explore), plus a day trip to Vermont. I swear that's all we saw were Subarus! (Always with a roof rack and a kayak or canoe on top!). Here in Michigan, uh what's a Subaru?

Think of it like a child waiting for Christmas day. Imagine the fulfillment of leaning into that first corner, the rush of accelerating up a freeway on ramp, the grin on your face. Soon. Soon . . .

Well, thanx for encouraging me.

Both of my folks are reclining, particularly my mom. Will probably visit them again in six months. I wish my dad would agree that they need to move to a care facility, leaving their home of 47 years....

don't die wondering.

That place looks really cool. My 'ol gal friend, just bought a house in Laguna Niguel and invited my out, when she gets it settled. I'll have to check it out, if I get out there this year. I'm still regretting not hitting that section of Ca., when I was on my big trip last year.
