I bet there was in their drink. 475 miles of mountain roads, they must have been eXtra quick most of the day!

That is one heck of a day in the mountains, shortened in daylight by the season. I’d be whipped.

Paid it off today. My payments were so small and the interest rate too good to not have the cash flow. $158 per month at .9% was worth the tiny amount of juice.

I don’t get what yet sayin. Why don’t you SPELL it out? If yer asking if drug induced assistance was used, why yes, caffeine and protein and carbs were employed. It doesn’t matter though, I could not have kept up with that maniacal speed demon in front of me. To have attempted would have led to an all too familiar tired thread around here, wondering if it was caused by lack of tread depth, or other such bullshit.

Said goodnight to it. We got a tiny dusting of snow Sunday that wasn't going to stick and they decided to cover the roads in salt. Need a couple of good rains before I'll take the FJR out again....but if it doesn't rain then the season is over. :(

Shouldn't we have something to look forward to in 2022 by now? :stickpoke:

That's a week later than it was this year. I assume you adjusted it back a week after checking the weather forecast?

Got an email I'm sure a lot you also got from the other sandbox. New software and I guess new owners so I responded with the post that was requested which caused me to review the farkles I've added over the years and I just can't believe I've done so much, and I'm still not done. :lol:

Today I put the Laam on. And the hydration system. And fresh batteries in the spot.

I’m gonna need a bigger belt buckle.

Rode across Florida. Nice little scenic ride from Gulf to Ocean. Weird weather for Florida this week. Low 50 even high 40s at night. Heats up 20 degrees when the sun comes up. Not a cloud in the sky.

Running off the last few miles of my tires on day rides. Plan to have a new set before spring. Plus the windshield and fairing is nice during the cool weather.

Winter is coming!
Day rides are nice in Florida right now.
Come on down.

Severe clear skies and upper 60s today. Joined a couple buddies and rode the back roads. Only about 125 miles, but we had a good time.

What is a FJR? 😁

This joke makes sense considering I live where it snows in winter.

Four hours today. Back roads to Red Clay State Historic Park near Chattanooga — final bonus to finish the Grand Tour of Georgia.

Going home was 90 minutes of Interstate; working through traffic like a running back in the defensive backfield. YeeHaw!

Washed all the grime off Renee after the SFO, and post SFO rides in North Georgia, Tennessee, and North Carolina with Turk and others. Then spent 4 hours blowing leaves so I could find my house again. Prayers to Turk and Jana after their unfortunate accident. Heal quickly my friends.

Last ride to of the season before they start salting the roads.

Oil warmed and drained. Time to start the winter maintenance list.

It’s now Ural season 😉
