Very humorous ride report in that part of the country, good thing it is patrolled and protected by tanks and the Air Force.
You sure are a nice guy letting your TW "rest" so often, and after all the rest you let it have, it still had the nerve to bite you!
Normally, where I ride I don't have to worry about pirates, only bears. I too have had to avoid Bears on the trail/roads, but never had the camera ready for proof...so everyone thinks I am a liar!
TW with rage and fury eh? The only rage and fury I have experienced when starting the TW was when it had a dead battery, and not so sure it was the TW with the rage and fury!
Seriously, thanks for sharing your report and photo's.
