seriusly, slideshow - how i despise them.
but i dig motorcycles, so i trudged through it.

some seem silly, but others are completely legit.
in 4 years of annual 4 day trips with a group do 4 (see all the 4s?!) I've had to get two tires replaced.
once due to a nail, and once due to wear (i really thought I had more miles left on that tire)

I rarely ride in groups of more than 4, and my main group are all friends outside of riding together so that works well.

Riding is therapy...Riding with friends is group therapy

Waiting 5 minutes for Bill to show up because he was filling up is better than everyone having to pull over 10 minutes after you head out because Bill has to fill up. Everyone show up Topped Off, rule one.
