It's terrible!! I bought my tw about a month ago and it's rained almost every day since then. I'm south of Indianapolis so maybe I should put a bighorn on the back and some pontoons on and float down south to dryer land and do some riding.
I rode up to a Yamaha shop in Fort Worth while the rain and hail was falling, the wind was blowing about 60mph, and the tornado sirens were blaring. I stepped up on the porch, pulled off my helmet and gloves, stepped inside, only to be told by one of the group of idle salesidiots clustered in the aisle that I can't ride in that kind of weather. I replied that all it takes is a real motorcycle, shrugged, and walked on to the parts counter. Tdub just sat out there in the rain making snerking sounds. Once I finished my business I headed for the door while pulling on my helmet and one of the sales idiots asked if I was really going out and riding in that mess. I told him no without missing a beat, headed out, fired up Tdub, and rode off through the storm. Last I saw all the salesidiots where
. I'm sure their manhoods were quite shriveled. I think Tdub flipped them the bird as we jumped the curb, but I can't be sure.
EDIT: Here we go again.
I'm about at the white scope crosshairs halfway between Memphis and Hopkinsville and that big red blob northeast of Memphis is aimed right for us. Verified 80mph straightline winds last night. I've heard rumors the forecast is for more intense weather this time around.
haahaahaa An earthquake of any consequence around here would trash everything in a 300 mile radius. Last major earthquakes about 200 years ago the surface of the earth had rolling swells like on the ocean.
I got Tadpots swiming in my backyard and yesterday I put together Frostie The Hail man in my front lawn!!!! Just cant ride any thing other than a boat here in the last couple of days!!! Man!!! we got tornados all around us here!!
Over 300 people dead and missing all across the southeast. Thousands of injuries. Many lives saved due to Doplar radar, the few minutes warning provided by recently installed warning systems, ongoing public education systems, and other emergency preparedness investments. Some small towns no longer exist.
Collision repair shops around here have storm-damaged vehicles lined up for repair. Many downed trees. Estimates of ~200 homes damaged by falling trees, wind, and/or flying debris kicked up by straightline winds over 80mph. All roads around here closed by downed trees have been at least partially cleared and reopened. Many low-lying roads still closed due to flooding and damage to the road base/levee due to flooding.
Hey y'all! Long time, no post, I know. Couple big things. Lomax is shopping for a tw, yay!!! Can't wait for us to both have one. He's taking the motor out of his xt 225 to convert my dub to a 6 speed woohoo :D:love:(y)
I haven't been riding much we've had so much going on, but that's all about...
Corona Virus (Take Two)
The last thread disintegrated into a “My political party is better than your political party, and I have the links to prove it”, yet the virus is still here, and the reaction to it is just as worrying as the virus itself.
Here in the UK, the general public seems to be...
I just found out I'm being furloughed at the end of this month. The upshot is I'll have more time to ride until the end of July. Anyone in the Athens Tennessee area want to get together? I'll be up there the second week of June. J.B. you in?
After adding a few things to be road legal and doing a couple weeks in quartzsite I went to nebraska for 6wks. A bit wet for starters so the tw sat and I put some.miles on the roxor. Went down to s carolina for a visit with gkids, back to ne, planted a garden and headed back home to wa. Am...
