:tt2: :tt2: :tt2: I tripped 3,000 on Wednesday. 7,000 is though. I can see that i'm gonna have to sneak in some side trips without notifying you so's I can catch up. So, when are we going to the outer banks? BTW, greyhound was dredging up your name in the Jennings thread.

WHAT? Why am I being brought up?

Greyhound knows I am hurt and looking to get me back for Barber!

As for side trips.... Why don't you and the wife come to the beach?

Not an adv bike, but I've put 6,800 on the 9er so far this year. Not sure about the other two. I need to add up my total miles.

Based on the weather lately I need a boat.:boat:

Well on my way to my goal! Flipped 8100 today on a nice jaunt to OBX, NC. Rolled the bike out of the garage this morning past my cars with Frost all over them. Slowly the temps got up into the mid 60s. Not bad weather for a ride.

It is getting chilly here.

Time for long johns and heavier jackets. But nothing has kept me off the bike yet.

Tripped 4,700 on the BRP trip. I ordered handguards and a taller screen today. The full report will come later, but in a nutshell, we holed up in Boone, NC trying to wait out a nasty weather front. High winds, fog, and rain were not the mix I wanted to tackle for a trip down curvy mountain roads. We struggled home today for two and a half hours of rain-soaked torture. Needless to say I found numerous flaws in my equipment (see above newly ordered tidbits) and gear (the Sidi's failed after 2 hours in solid soaking rain.)
Still ticked over 1,000 miles on the trip, and I have pics of some kickass places we found along the way.
