Its hard to be "Good" on a V Strom

Its hard to be "Good" on a motorcycle. Its hard not to slalom the dashed center line on country blacktops. Its hard not to take the 25mph curve at 50. Its hard not to accelerate a little faster than what is needed. Having a motorcycle that can go a little off the blacktop makes it even more difficult. Its hard not to take that bike path. Its hard not to drive through the large puddle. Its hard not to take a shortcut over a curb or two. Its hard to be “Good” on a V Strom.

It's hard to stay home on a sunny Saturday like this and help the SO with the housework... :evil:

Mokus, you must be my long lost twin. If I wasn't going back to work again I would just ride out of town grinning all the way.

Tomorrow morning (if the weather wants as well) we will have some fun on pocket bikes. (today morning I managed the kids, so got the permission to go out tomorrow...) :wink:
I got a friend (we established our former MC club together) who has two PBs. We can ride them on a GoKart track. You can find some pics and video.
(only the "upper" video works, after clicking wait a bit to download)

This is my friend Robert in the "twisties"

You left out:

It's hard not to rally across the 12th hole fairway, over the 12th green, across the cart bridge, down the 13th fairway, over the green and out into the road through the little gutter opening in the curb...

Not that I do such things.

Oh sure, two SO's. That would make for a stress filled life, plus two mothers in law. Oh I am feeling ill now.

LOL!!!! No........ Can't say I've done that *sly grin*.

Or, chase a flock of geese through a field. Why no - don't do such things either.

suspend reality as often as possible
