Low 70's here, tomorrow TG will be a little warmer. The ride to the high desert tomorrow will probably be the last nice one until spring. Leather, chaps and thermals from then on. :( At least we'll still be able to ride.

You guys are killing me :sick:

Man that sucks Stokes, if I was closer I'd give you a hand making her a roller again, no pun intended.
Keep your hand up and don't push it for a while.

Hand breaks are bad. Make sure it heals right.
Blue, not trying to rub it in, Summers are brutal here. Rode only in the cooler parts of the days. Too hot to work on the bike so I have plenty of work to do on her this winter too. :dry:

Got it covered,JD,thanks.Took it over to a local wrench yesterday,Will have it back on the bike friday.Hopefully this ice and snow melts over the next couple days.I aint leavin that splint on any longer.Last time I had pins and a removable cast on for 4 months,afterwards the doc told me atrophy was the biggest obstacle,almost a year of PT for the hand and then I had the pleasure of having the shoulder and elbow done.Hadnt been able to ride for almost 3 yrs,I intend to get as much time on the road as I can this winter,weather permitting.

Trying to "re-learn" to play guitar has been a rough road since the accident 3 yrs ago,Bruce.I've kinda come to terms with the fact that it aint ever gonna be the same.

Happy Thanksgiving!




It's actually been in the 60s most the month even a few 70s. I haven't been riding though since i want to get some minor stuff done on the 1100 so I can get to really working on the 750.

Yeah... really sorry about that. I'm a semi-pro drummer here in Denver and I ....broke three of my toes late last year, including my big toe, ... and it was on my kick drum foot.
I feel ya, it took a really long time to get that back together.
Had to cancel 5-6 months of gigs and studio work before I could even think about it. It was this June and July this year before I could actually do a four-five hour gig. Still have problems.
Building amps, vintage refurbs and messing with the bikes helps though!
Keep a stiff lip brother.

Heading up to the high desert for TG. Down here it's in the 70's, up there the 50's. This weekend will bring rain up there so I'll be back tomorrow. Have a good Thanksgiving all our US guys and for the rest, Cheers B)

Nov 29, almost hit 60 so I decided to burn one more tank, this may be it though.
It was a very good trouble free year, as far as the bikes go anyway :dry:
Time to bring them in and start getting em ready for next year :woohoo:
