Default Hey all...still here

Been a busy month getting ready to change jobs and move and everything. Wife has had me busy packing, throwing stuff out, donating stuff, you name it.
Looks like I am going to be shipping the bike. Getting more and more comfortable on it every time I ride it. My 900 has a little over 1100 miles on her now. I hope everyone had a happy thanksgiving and didnt spend too much money on black friday. Happy Holidays everyone!

Hello all, been back in Texas for a little over a week now. Bike will be in transit shortly. Cant wait for it to get here. Interesting, no helmet law here. I'll still be wearing mine. Anyone in the Temple area?

Still waiting on the bike and our other stuff. The mover gave my wife a window from Dec 19-28 that the truck would arrive. I'm not counting on them to be here until December 28th. But thats ok. Bike insurance has already been set up and paid for Texas. Just got to get it inspected and registered and all that. Come on moving company!

Little cold for this week , but all good !!, When the Ice clears I bet she will be here for your first ride in TX, Most everyone wears a helmet here, lots of group rides won't even let you ride with out one.

As they say live to ride another day!!

Got out on the bike for a ride on New Years Day. Weather was good that afternoon. Since then though weather has been cold and wet. I was impressed the Vulcan turned over and started after not being started for over a month. Still rides good as new!

When you get some warm weather; be sure to ride out to Fredricksburg (a neet little tourist town) and Kerrville.
Not TOO far from Temple and some of the best riding roads in TX.

Be sure to check out the three sisters too.

Ride safe
Scott

Got the bike out and rode it to get it inspected. After that got some Chick Fil A and went for a nice ride. The sun was out, but it was still a bit chilly. Hands got colder than anything, even with gloves on. I bought a new Ford F150 pickup not long after the wife got here. Big Red, my 1999 Chevy Silverado 1500 had to be put out to pasture. I do like my new Ford truck though. Never owned a Ford before. We bought my wife a new Ford Escort years ago right after she graduated from college. I really liked that car. Ive liked Ford trucks for a long time.
