    Ride 7/12 or 7/13

    Gentlemen, I enjoyed it. Roads were great. Lunch was t bad. And the weather was perfect! Looking forward to our best one. All you guys that bailed, you missed out. Ah well, maybe next time.

    Pauly is having mechanical issues. He’s out. I’m en route. Should be there 10-10:15.

    I plan to be there. I’ll text Pauly if I can’t make it.

    2019 Gap Trip.

    Couldn’t agree more. Pretty much decided during this trip that the Goldwing is my retirement bike. And maybe I’ll own one a little earlier than that, considering the wife enjoys riding two-up.

    2019 Gap Trip.

    Yep...was a good trip. If anything, I’m a more experienced motorcyclist for having ridden 1000 miles of wet road...in 5 days. Apparently the weather event that was our vacation was national news. 8+ inches of rain in some places down there. 3-4 almost everywhere we rode. Anyway, good people, good (wet) roads and beautiful scenery. I can think of worse ways to spend my time. I wish it would have been more dry, but I wished in one hand and crapped in the other.... don’t ask me why I crapped in my hand

    I’ve bailed on epic rides cause of weather the day of. I’ve also seen epic rides cancelled 36 hours beforehand due to the forecast and the weather was fine. All I can say is in a 5 day trip, we are almost guaranteed to get wet...but also will definitely get plenty of good riding in. The ratio matters and hopefully it’s much more of the latter. But I’m fairly sure it’s going to be a good trip no matter what.

    This time of year, especially in the mountains, all weather forecasters can do is throw a dart at a board with numbers between 5 and 100 and roll with where they land. It's the summer, it's humid.....it will rain. Any more precision than that isn't possible. I will say.....last year was a sucky, wet mess. Just hoping we avoid it this year. But changing 6 month old plans based on a crappy forecast is like cashing in your retirement based on the recommendation of Dr. Phil.

    We may need Justin to define “anytime soon”.

    IIRC, you suggested to install the chock a little higher on a block, which would lift the height of where the front wheel met the frame of the trailer.....and in return would have given me that extra half an inch or so clearance that I would've needed. Is that correct? Never made the change. I should've though. I trailered it a couple times after that.I suppose the damage had already been done.

    How did you remember such a minute, inconsequential detail? I'm impressed.... or unnerved...

    Took her out for the maiden voyage today and good lord...what a motorcycle!! Sorry Mike...I know we talked in person at IP as I was looking for my FZ/MT. Just turned out that I bought Justin’s instead of a new one.
