    Back Form Borneo's

    Nick and I headed north and west some 70 miles at around noon yesterday and after a 25 hour quick trip we returned to Ohio from NE Indiana. We got the TWs over, drank more beer than we could count, ate tons of deep friend fresh fish, deep fried pickles, potatoes, and watched Nick, "Weasel", and friends, straighten Weasel's rack, Nick doing some welding, and some of the other younger guys tackled putting Weasel's new front and rear tires onTire Change 002.JPG....after an all night BS and story telling session, with about 15 in attendance, we finally crashed about the time "Daylight Savings" time made the clocks move up an hour.

    This morning, Miss Margaret, Borneo's better half, fixed us coffee and breakfast, then Nick finally got a chance to put a few miles on his 2015 TW....I forget to snap any photos, but we did get some 10 or 12 miles on the dirt, and gravel, and Nick handled his TW without a hitch, except for a soft rear brake lever....in 35 degree weather{warm by comparison over the past 2 months}....we left our rides, said our good-byes, and will now wait for some work to be done on Weasel's bike, and come March 19th we will gather one more time, and head out Friday March 20th for Moab and our Spring Ride 2015.

    Time is money and I would have taken those wheels to a local shop and paid the price to have the tires dismounted and mounted and got back to the beer and FRIEND chicken much quicker!

    Still a good 3 feet of snow on the ground here and today is the first day in over two months above freezing. Let the thaw begin slow and steady! Glad you guys are beginning to get out and have some fun.

    Be Decisive! Right or Wrong just make a decision. ​ The road of life is paved with flat squirrels that couldn't make a decision.

    Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.
