What I learned today

No matter how long I stay away I seem to return . No mater how long I stay away the same idiots or different idiots in the same guise are still here . No mater how long I stay away I still find a way to help someone . No mater how long I stay away it seems the same people that were worth a **** are still worth a **** and maybe that's why I keep coming back .

There is a (im)moral to this post ...


...I guess it doesn't matter

Hardly . I was here at the beginning . It was a joke tailored for the unique few that still remember when our numbers were barely hundreds not thousands. I've been humbled by the friends made and the generosity received. I have also lashed out at stupidity , ignorance and prejudice . I've shared heartache and joy with these forums .
So , "giant ego" ?
hardly

A former member for a long time, upgraded my bike, then sold my bike, and here I am again! Shopping for another bike. What does my mind tell me to do now? Come back to this forum!

O M F G!! Mon Cheri, I have missed you so much!! How's Chaz?

So let's yak a bit, maybe start a new thread, eh. What up? New bike? I'm still on my Big Ol' Fat Pig POS FJR, creeping up on 98,000 miles. Did a lot of work comfort-wise over the winter.

Back on topic: I learned yesterday that some of the bestest riding is in rural Virginnie when you pick a random spot on the gps and ride to it in a thunderstorm. What a hoot! Rode about 300 miles yesterday, much of it using that process in that weather.

Words aren't children and there's nothing wrong with killing them to clarify a point or keep the peace.

Aw, what a nice welcome back!!!! Thank you so much!!!!!!!!
Well, I traded in my 900 for the 1700 Vaquero. As much as I LOVED that bike, it was very heavy and intimidated me on slow maneuvers. So, when we hit a spell of financial problems, I sold it. Chaz sold his Nomad to Kevin for a great deal since he was a good friend. We have been without a bike for quite a while now. Everything in life is peachy and we are ready to get back on a bike again!!! Can't wait to ride with you all again!

I want to find a decent used 900 Classic LT again and Chaz wants another Nomad, so he has to go used, but would like one newer than his last one.
