You are absolutely right, @Gullyjumper . When @SpeedyTide and I first met up for a ride, I had told him prior I planned on doing the Seven Bridges Ride one night. One crosses every bridge (and one twice of course since an odd number) over the St, Johns River in Jacksonville where he lives. Said he was game and off we went. It was about 130 mile ride for me and about 110 miles for him.

Well, Speedy turned out to be a rather bad influence on his TW. I didn't get home till after 3 am that night. Little did I know that would not be the first time this would happen. I don't know how the T-Dubs put up with this sorta thing. Even mules need some rest!!!

I have logged many miles riding as a loner on different bikes in years past and probably about 95% has been such. Since our first ride together 8 months ago, I would say only about 40% of my rides have been in solitude. While I still enjoy the solitude rides as we all do, I must say I have really enjoyed the camaraderie as well.

As @Workingman said, REMEMBER IT'S THE JOURNEY NOT THE DESTINATION . I am bad to turn around when something catches my eye or go explore a side road from the side road I am already on. SpeedyTide seems to be that way as well. We decided to ride up to Fargo, Georgia one day. I think it took us four different trips before we finally made it all the way there this past Thursday. And it's only 45 miles away!

Good times, Ride on Speedy, Tide on!

From your Awesome Videos, you would know quite a lot about that!

Cheers, from beautiful cloudy, cool and damp Florida! No sunshine here last several days.

Yeah, and only reason we finally made it to Fargo, is we loaded bikes up in the truck to drive straight there!! :ROFLMAO:

Be careful there Jeff, he can be a bad influence. I wouldn't ride with him myself. If I had the choice!

Well, I did sell it this past Saturday.

But....only because I'd purchased the '17 couple months back.

I'll miss my '09'er!

You will regret sending your TW off. I am on my 5th one. I have some cruisers and love the open road at times. Picked up and new honda crf250rl as I couldn't find a TW last spring. Is a bit tall in the saddle. I lowered it, put risers on it, happy with the suspension and extra power and smoothness, but it isn't a TW. I wound up finding another TW and it will be with me until I can't ride. Just something about the little bike that loves the back country.

I hadn't read all the posts, sorry. Glad you are still riding a little mule.
