Sounds like a blast, have so much fun schnappi!

Haha - I'm getting used to freaky handling, the Vmax is like a puppy on a leash in the twisties... lol

If you want a detour...Jun 22 - 25 is "Thunder in the Valley" in Johnstown, PA. It's a Vmax event, but they say all riders welcome. I am going to try to make it out to that one some year to see "my people" and since they don't seem to do much for Vmax events in the midwest or west coast.

Hey, I don't know if any of you are on Facebook, but there is a "Motorcycle Picture Game" group. It would be fun if more people were active, so I thought I'd share it with a couple of my bike groups. An M109 Forum did it a few years back, and it's a blast - and there is always a reason to ride if you are looking for one. Object - go find the last posted item, snap a pic of your bike by it, and then you pick the next challenge. You can even ping-pong back and forth challenges for a whole day with people across the country when people get more active. So - join up if you like - it's fun! https://www.facebook.com/groups/993349910775927

Okay Biker guys and gals, it's time
to resurrect this forum and rev up
some motorcycle life into again.

The last time we got on our Road King
was last year when we trailered our
bike to Daytona in October for Octoberbikefest.

I know we are still in the Summer month
right now, but soon we will be in Autumn
and Fall which to me is the best time to
get out and enjoy cooler tempt weather.

As the cooler tempts draw nearer I will
be loosing the pool for exercise and will
need to replace it with something else.

I forgot that when we ride our bike, for
some reason I loose weight. Not sure how
that happens but it does. It maybe all the
air I'm breathing into my lungs and body,
and read where oxygen helps in weight
lost or good for muscles or something along
those lines.

Sooooo, after a good while not riding,
we are ready to get back on soon to ride
for our life. For a healthier mind, body
and soul. Nothing like hitting the road
for some much needed enjoyment.

Okay guys and gals, what kind of motorcycle
stories do you have to share with us and what
kind of bike are you riding.

Got American Pickers on now and they
are talking about Sturgis, one of our all
time places we've enjoyed riding to and
experiencing on our motorcycle.

I have a motorcycle, a car, and a truck. The motorcycle is my number one vehicle of choice. Car for rain. Truck for snow. Other than that motorcycle. I ride about 200 days a year, on bucolic two lane country roads, on trips that average 50 miles.

I live at about 4,000 ft in the foothills of the Sierra Neda mountains on the way to Lake Tahoe. I can't help but smile when I leave my dirt driveway, that I am on roads that other bikers ride to, in order to enjoy a scenic ride. WOOT! I am already there, how blessed.

I couldn't ride last Wed-Sat, nothing major, just life happens sometimes. Talk about withdrawals, cravings, and obsession. Yesterday I finally got to get some wind between my ears. I don't know who was happier, me or my wife...and she doesn't ride :~)

I told my wife if I ever get to where I can't ride, she might as well plant me because I am done.

Thanks nez for sharing with us.

It's always cool to have someone new
to join in in sharing some exciting news
or stories about their 2 wheel rides or
3 like us since we added 2 back wheels
and a trunk to our Harley Road King
awhile back for comfort and safety
at our age.

While reading what you wrote I had
to go look up the word bucolic because
I wasn't familiar with it and see what
you were talking about in your sentence.



bu·col·ic
byo͞oˈkälik/

Relating to the pleasant aspects of the countryside
and country life. "the church is lovely for its bucolic setting"

Synonyms:
Rustic, rural, pastoral, country, countryside.

Okay, now I know....Yay, I learned a new word
today.

You've got to share with us when the
seasons change where you live esp. Fall
with all those awesome colors and then
the snow since we seldom ever get snow
down here in the south.

Any bike rallies you've attended or
have in your neck of the woods?
