    Thanks Norm. Tree is not mine.
    The scoot is stupid fun.
    A couple of years ago my freind stopped by on his absolutely beautiful Ducati 996. As a spoof I parked the rusty old scoot by the Ducati for a picture of the Italians. While doing this a couple of girls walked by and one commented "cool scooter". Imagine our shock..

    When consulting the magic 8 ball for advice, one must first ask it "will your answers be accurate?"

    That's funny. Hey Glen, my wife likes your rusty scoot too. Chick magnet!!

    I had my 850 at church and my buddy came out with his 20 yr old son who said "wow, that bike is rad!" Hadn't had my old man bike described as "rad" before. Made me chuckle for a bit. I love the old GS. Love looking at it as much as riding it...almost as much anyways, but close.

    After some struggles this past week in the parking lot, Charmayne and I finally got out for a short ride around the block. She did well and I'm trying to plan a bit longer of a ride for Sunday that won't push her too much.

    I taught myself, but followed guidelines and worked on the thing I found the hardest; pulling away from a stop. Rode up and down, back and forth on residential streets with the most stop signs. Wanted to get that right before I was at a busy intersection.
    Did not take so very long, then riding around on country roads was wonderful, low stress.
    I'm sure this will be fun.

    Sooooo, your just kicking back in the car jamming to Megadeth? I've been on the bike wishing I had some tunes. My one track mind gets monotonous! Hope you get it going soon.

    Yeah man, its like meditation for me.. lots of people cant stand the aggressiveness of metal but for me it keeps me from exploding. Like pulles the anger and stress right out of me. Ive always been big on megadeth, dave mustaine is a lyrical genius, not to mention is extremely complex and aggressive riffs..

    I understand, sort of. I mean my kids always said the same thing. Metal winds me up though, Disturbed, Pantera, Metallica, go to music if I'm exhausted or down. Good for what ails ya! Those bands are a bit counter intuitive to my Christian faith but the music, oh man, it gets in me and stirrrrrs! Topic for another time I suppose.
