No, YOU'RE snake! :)
Nice to meet you too.
Sent a picture of you 3 to my CEO when he text me and asked "Where the heck are you?"

Under the picture was a caption "Riding The Beast with retired F15 pilots in the Ozarks" (yes, a little streeeetch, just to drive the dagger in deeper. He is a 14,000 hour small jet pilot)

He grew up in NorthWest Arkansas. It was a double-dagger. I simply proved I was having more fun than him! :)

Well, I just have to upload this picture of this guy who gets a big kick out of "younger folks" who stop at every junction to "hunch over their GPS's". I, myself, try not to use tech much when I'm on the bike (except for music). How 'bout this guy? ::024::

Don't know who that old hippie relic is multitasking with a cancer stick in his second hand, BUT, them some groovy boots. :)

Seriously, that was a crappy few hours. My normally wonderful job was suddenly impeding on my Adventure-time. I had to let you guys go on without me while I finished up.

However, who beat ya back to The Hub? 8)
I was blistering Highway 7 hoping to catch back up! Not sure where I got the advantage, but my goodness I love that road.

Yeah, we got on 123 in the switchbacks and slowed WAY down... They say you are what you eat, and I'm a pussy when it comes to wrecking my s10!!! :p

And I agree, you should show that pic to your boss!! ::013::

I dress to crash. And I got Ranch Hand Grills all the way around the Pig.

My concern was going to jail. But I gotta admit the whole week revealed a pro-bikes mentality around that motorcycle Mecca.

Techie Sasquatch. (I like it.)
Hauls a camper trailer on another trailer. (hillbilly)
Rarely seen without a cowboy hat and in an F150-250-350 (Redneck)
And Rides a Super Tenere, no less.

I do believe we were eye to eye as you sat atop your trailer home perch. Gargoyle style with big paws swiping at iPads and cell phone carrying a good conversation. As for TG, well I think we are all saddened by his catastrophic injury.

What we can take from this is:
1. he reset it himself
2: he THEN made the hill climb without incident
3: repeatedly told me to not escort him to the DR's office
4. rode back to camp
5. drunk a beer that night


Besides who needs a pinky finger? Outside of the Metal Horns and picking your nose it is about useless. Oh wait there is one other use......................

Patrick just turned this into the best thread of the year...lol! Hilarious. I agree, and was impressed at TG 's ability to downplay a pretty bad injury.

Snake it's not Patrick or Pete's fault. I struggle sometimes with the weight and girth of this bike in the rough stuff. I did get to test the ACD plate.

It certainly did it's job!

Patrick your crazy! Only you would reference the stinky pinky.
