A short video of my recent 280miles round trip motorcycle ride from Alpharetta to Tellico Plains, TN and back.
We stopped for an hour (or so) long Lunch stop in Tellico Plains. On the way back a downpour from a PopUp Storm caught us on a 20mile stretch where there wasn’t really any spot to stop safely out of the rain. By the time we got to a gas station and I set up the rain liner in the jacket - the rain just about cleared to blue skies!
Murphy is still very much about!

The dreaded Cruise Control flickering light issue has struck!
10089 miles on the clock.
Recent changes: tire change.
speed sensors irritated and acting up?

What actually is Farkle? I’m English but I don’t recognise it from my language. Is it some kind of hybrid?

I always assumed it a was a made up generic word. I had never heard of it before and thought that it may have come from y'all; wrong again. Google & Wikipedia say it's a game.

Farkle (n): A modification to a motorcycle that satisfies the following criteria: creates “bling,” serves a purpose (the usefulness of which is in the eyes of the farkler) and is most likely expensive. Often used among touring riders to denote or convey status amongst their peers. Ex: “I picked up a new farkle for my ST today: a GPS-based burger joint locator!” (v): To farkle; to accessorize one’s motorcycle with farkles. Ex: “Boy, John really farkled out his K1300GT; it’s even got a cup holder!”
