  1. So, how many miles have you put on you bike so far this year?
    You DO have it up and running right?

    :angryfire I was up to see the guy a month ago.. he said he'd have it ready in two weeks. I'm going up there TOMORROW... Sunday or not. There were so many bikes out today it made me sick to see them go by.

    One drawback about this beautiful area I live in...ppl just take their sweet time about things.. never get in a hurryabout ANYthing.

    You'll know my bike's back on the road when you see my Beemer avtar blinking...

    I take it you've just been cruisin' right along...? No fair. Enjoy, my Friend, and be safe !

    What's not fair is that my plans to take the pony out for a few road trips this year had to be scrapped. Took the ol' girl to a body shop (reputable fella) for a once over and found out that we need to get the frame repaired or run a risk of her coming down where ever we happen to be when the frame lets go and be unable to drive her home *sigh* so much for a cruise to the beach with the top down!

    You guys enjoy your bikes!

    Hate that for ya.... bummers. But just think... your pony will be like a spring chicken for next year's trip !

    After seeing about 500 gazillion bikes on the road Sunday when we took our little drive, I said that's it ! I'm going back to pester that guy once again !

    Just got back from his shop... and all the parts he ordered are in.. new tires, grips, battery, fender piece I needed, and some other small stuff. His business had picked up 100 fold this past year.. you can barely walk around in there for the bikes... but he said he has another guy starting to work for him next week, who excells in paint and body work, and my bike will be his first priority for this guy. Suits me fine !

    At any rate, he said he'd definately have it done in the next few weeks... I'll be tied up with Jessie's wedding anyway for the next little while, but after that, watch out !!! Whoooooooot !!!

    Yeh.. I hear ya. To have done mine the way I really wanted would have cost 2K... just ain't got it ! But as long as it's cleaned up with a bit of a face lift, that's fine... anything's better than nothing. Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait !!!

    Check out my "smilies" everywhere ... even back THEN (1972) I was the "Smilie Queen" !

    (there's even a smilie patch on the bottom leg of my jeans... heh.)

    I am working 2 extra shifts (12's) this week. I'll get time +1/2 and a $75. bonus for each shift. Then I'll claim "exempt" on my taxes for this pay period. All the extra money is going for chrome! I have a long wish list and plan on spending about a grand on accessories and chrome.
    I'll post a picture when I get it all installed.
    Oh, I'll get a new front tire too. It's getting down there.
    I'm on a chrome mission.
