Hotel O-WristTwister

OK, so tomorrow after work I am doing the first leg of my trip to Atlanta.
Any fellow wrist twister on my route will to give up some couch room or floor Wednesday night? I need to get on the road early Thursday. I have a hard time justifying $70 for a hotel I will only be in 5 to 8 hours. Plus, the more money I save, the more I can drink in Atlanta!!!

Well, HondaF4iguy (Mike) arrived yesterday afternoon around 4:30pm. A nasty thunderstorm moved in here about 4pm, and I called to leave a voicemail giving him warnings. I receive a call back that he had altered his route based on the clouds, and rushed a little to beat them. Needless to say, he rode about 4 hours w/ ten drops of rain to contend with. I rode home (15 miles) in a freaking torrential downpour. When I got to the house, I was wetter than him. We loaded everything into the garage, and kicked around the bikes for a while until my wife arrived with the beer (Guinness & Bass; Mmmmmmm) We chilled out for an hour or so while my wife whipped up an excellent meal, filled our bellies, and retired to the couch. Sidenote: Firewall is only a so-so movie. We all crashed around 11:30, and Mike is now on a wet journey to Atlanta, GA. (The rainsuit he bought @ VIR was missing the pants, DOH!) Ernesto moved in a little earlier than expected, but I think he will be dry once he gets out of NC.

He called me from northern NC to tell me about a housing development with big houses and 1 acre lots starting in the $120's. ugh.

So you get wet, take a shower and hang the stuff up to dry. It's an adventure bike, enjoy the ride!

Oh, I didn't have an issue with being wet, actually the Sidi Tepors did their job perfectly. Dry feet when I arrived, and the Fieldsheer kept me dry as well. I am glad I am getting the wet experience. I never wanted to venture out in it w/ my sportbikes, but now I am just not that worried about it. Once I figure out the chin spoiler to keep the water out of the helmet, i'll be set.

I hear you James - loving wet riding lately, still get around quicker than the cages and have taken advantage of an ADV bike - if I get a ticket for "unlawful use of a public road, median, or unpaved roadside area" so what, I get a ticket.

Glad to hear he made it to your place safely. Hope his ride isn't too bad today. I don't know what it is, but we almost always have to drive through rain when going down Labor Day weekend.

One year there were people that just stopped across all three lanes of the highway under an overpass. How there were no accidents I have NO idea! We were dumbfounded. Semi's and lots of people were laying on the horn. Finally people pulled off to the shoulder so traffic could actually drive down the highway again.

SO I arrive in ATL......

Jeez, this could be a whole long story. But I need to take a hot shower and get some dry clothes on.

Regardless, here in One piece.

I thought that's where the adventure part came in about our bikes?

Hey Jet, in your signature, 'expresso is race fuel', is 'expresso' a reference to something else or is it supposed to be 'espresso' - as in the brewed coffee beverage. Not to be picky, but I do manage a coffee shop for a living, so I was just wondering....
