I had an evening meeting in the Southtowns run late, I was riding home in a lightning storm. It was a 40 mins light show with me hoping to stay dry.

    Did you succeed in staying dry?

    Needed to run out for a few things yesterday and at one point the traffic slowed way down and I couldn't figure out why. I just thought some idiot was on his phone and distracted.  Well, it turns out it was due to a distraction, but a good one. As I got up further I see a guy and woman jogging and the woman is wearing one of the smallest pair of shorts and tops I had ever seen on a runner and she was so incredibly fit I could see each individual ab muscle from my bike. It was pretty damn nice and definitely warranted the slow down. In fact I wouldn't have minded had we stopped entirely.

      Rode late this afternoon to Pinnacle Mountain in Arkansas to get a feel for the new Ivan's flash v2. I was impressed much more than the first ecu flash. I was enjoying the ride and forgot about the rain storm, wich forced me to stop and seek cover because of the heavy rain.

      Rode today long enough to get my arms burnt from the sun.  I'm loving this Ivans Flash.  I can tell that my mileage has improved and thats with a heavy hand on the throttle.  Rode for 60 miles and had to stop for gas.  Filled up the bike with 93 octane as usual and going to check my mileage for a full tank.  I might just have to get sun burnt again tomorrow riding O8O O8O O8O.

      Wear long sleeves and you can ride longer before getting the desired burn.  ;D

      Got off work yesterday and ran the errand I needed then just took off for no place in particular and just road for about an hour.  Was great to just ride, 87 degrees but with my Joe Rocket jacket the air just goes through it and keeps me cool. 

      Rode in at 3:00 AM this morning for work and thinking of just riding again when I get off work today...  ;D

      Desiree and I needed to run a few places, so we took bikes.  Great day of riding. Stopped at the Kilt for burgers. Had a woman smoking outside a store at one of our stops tell us that our bikes have drawn numerous crowds while we were away. I told her that happens all the time. Had a guy at another stop come over to check out my Raider and then waited for Desiree to park to get a better look. He kept saying what a gorgeous bike it was. I asked if he rode and he said he used to, but he was too old now. I told him he looked about my age. He told me he had two decades on me.  This guy did not look anywhere close to 70, so we guessed he thought I was much younger than I am.

      I rode down to Laguna Beach along the Pacific Coast Hwy and back. About a75 mile round trip. Stopped at a little hole in the wall for lunch. Lots of bikes were tooling along. Lots of women in bikinis too! :-) :-)

      I DID, I DID, I DID. Okay, less than 1/2 mile. BUT, what a 1/2 mile!

      Almost a half mile lore than me.  I road part way down my driveway. Then road the wheeler farther as I was doing work in the yard.  Then roads both back into garage just in time to keep them from getting rained on.
