Have the NC and eastern folks left?

No good conversation lately. You guys riding or just tired of typing?

Haven't ridden since the Sticky Fingers run.

Maybe if the leaves would stop falling, I could stop raking and do a little riding, if only for a little while.

Yeah I know..................you remember those appetizer coupons we got??? Well my wife and I are going to try and go down on the 7th to use it and do some shopping across the road in the stores.

I have a new Sargeant seat on the way and is showing here Tuesday but I am busy with most of next week doing re-cert for officers statewide in Haywood County.

I know I will want to get a ride in to see how the seat is!

If you need another of those coupons, let me know. I think I still it laying around here somewhere. Don't know that I'll get back to Gville any time soon.

I'll be interested in what you think about the Sargent. I'm considering sending mine down to the guy in FL who does the custom seats... it seems to be the most cost effective option for me and he gets good reviews. But still may consider other options.

Have fun on your shopping trip! (At least you'll get some good BBQ out if it!)

It's 19 degrees in Boston, with snow forecast this afternoon. Guess......

Taking mine off the road today, most likely. We usually get a December thaw but rain and snow are in the forecast for the next week.

Well, yesterday (Saturday), my wife and I rode 280mi. RT to get a hamburger near West Point Ga. We had planned to have a nice southern-style dinner at the 'Heart of the South Tea Room'. Probably should have called first; as we rode up, they were closing - at 1:30pm..! :???: Seems they don't have regular hours, and kind of adjust to the local demand.. Oh well. So, we went to a place on West Point lake called Southern Harbor and had what was actually a pretty decent burger. Still, I had my heart set on a good cookin' and homemade deserts.. Guess we gotta go back again..

Some of the more aware dinosaurs warned of the dangers of an iridium-enriched nuclear reactor. 'If this thing goes off', they warned, 'there would be nothing left but cockroaches and mammals.'
