There was a Friday ride

    Met up with the RedShad and Walker, B. over at the hurry up market in
    Arlington about 10 something. Today the main goal was to get some of that
    new smell off of a certain NewWing. Checking the temperature readout on
    RedShad's new toy revealed temperature was up to 41°f and even though the
    cloudy skies and moderate North wind made it seem colder, it was early yet
    and we knew it would warm more, so we decided to make a run for the beach on
    the Brazos River at Kimball Bend.
    Downward bound on 360 we were through Mansfield and onto 917 towards Joshua
    before lunch, deciding on Cleburne for lunch. We had some Mexican food and
    sat around. Finally I had to use my leadership skills to get us out of the
    warmth and back to bikes. We did one of those offers where if anyone wanted
    to back out and go back home, it would be ok, and we wouldn't mention to
    anyone. RedShad and I continued on down to the River, visited with a
    fisherman, took a picture, and traveled on to Morgan. Bought some gas at
    Morgan and headed over to Lakeside at Lake Whitney. Not much going on at the
    Lake today. Cut back through Whitney (town of ), Hillsboro, Itasca, and on
    to the house. That new big motorcycle RedShad has it a real beauty up
    close...purrs real smoothly too. RedShad has a real nice ride. I know
    someone else that could use a big windshield and some faring.
    It did get up to 43°f before it was over.
    If you wanna see the RedShad's new1, some pics of the river stop are here

    Had a damn good ride today. I just want to thank Louie publicly for running
    me on dirt roads, roads with pea gravel all over them and making me do over
    a 100 MPH as soon as my bike hit 30 miles on the odometer. I guess one
    should ride it like you stoled it and take it 4 wheeling right away...break
    it in right. We rode a little over 200 miles according to my trip. It was
    chilly but nice. Those pics turned out real good. Looking foward to the next
    ride. It should be less than 24 hours away.

    I want to say, I 'preciate you not mentioning any names there.

    And for the record, I further would like to say that the first thing I
    did after I got back home with my modified Shadow is to order a new
    windshield...since your fine mathmatical skills showed me how cold it
    could get...and the fact I hit head winds all the way back and when I
    popped the bike to 130mph, IT GOT REALLY FREAKIN' COLD!!!

    One thing that's really cool about this bike of mine is when you get
    above 100mph you'd figure you'd be close to topping it out. Instead,
    you twist into that throttle and it's still pulling really hard. I've
    been to an indicated 135mph on this thing and it was still pulling.
    I'm looking forward to getting down into Mexico on the Autopista and
    using the GPS to see what this bike of mine will actually do! If the
    speedo is close to correct and judging by the tach, I figure I'll be
    good til around 145 or 150.

    I stopped by the Suzuki dealer here in Mesquite on my way back to see
    if they had some luggage for the up-coming ride to Mexico. Can you
    believe those guys have never heard of soft sided luggage for one of
    these bikes? I was surprised! I guess with no one yesterday hearing of
    a Throttlemeister and today no one hearing of soft sided luggage sets,
    we need to get some folks in the motorcycle business.

    Let me know what's on tap for other rides!

    You guys ran off without me.. Spending the day just grousing and grumbling
    around La Casa wasn't much to speak of, but.. staying by the fire on days
    like
    this does have it's benefits.. You can take bets that I didn't get far from
    that
    fire, today.. <chuckle> You guys are just too damn tough. Glad you were
    out
    and about.. That new Wing looks like its' doing about eighty mph when it's
    on
    the sidestand.. Congrats again, Redshad..

    130mph; EZ 135, and still have throttle; Apossible150; stop a a Suzzy
    store, to get stuff for a Mod Shadow. Inter==rest==ing.

    /I want to say, I 'preciate you not mentioning any names there.

    What happens in Johnson County stays in Johnson County!

    /And for the record, I further would like to say that the first thing I

    /windshield...since your fine mathmatical skills showed me how cold it

    /popped the bike to 130mph, IT GOT REALLY FREAKIN' COLD!!!

    I would image so. We should of when upstream starting out.

    /One thing that's really cool about this bike of mine is when you get
    /above 100mph you'd figure you'd be close to topping it out. Instead,
    /you twist into that throttle and it's still pulling really hard.

    That is 1 thing that is cool, but is it as cool and I35W Northbound?

    I've
    /been to an indicated 135mph on this thing and it was still pulling.
    /I'm looking forward to getting down into Mexico on the Autopista and

    I can believe. I have that oil leak from the rear end on my Voyager. This
    will be the second repair within 5,000 miles. There is a known remedy for
    the problems 'out there', but not known 'in there'. I asked about the remedy
    and was told it would void the warranty. Well we'll just repair it every
    month or so....man O man..

    /Let me know what's on tap for other rides!

    Today, Northeast bound from Arlington.... Road Captain RedShad

    I like the kinda flat ones with the three holes in the end. They are kinda
    wide and narrow and straight. I was looking at them today and LOUIE said I
    couldnt put them on there. Louie said I cant add anything to it...well I got
    bad news..some chrome is going on that scooter..LOL.

    Let's get to gettin' tomorrow! It's supposed to be warmer than today
    and it's nice today. Tomorrow should be no excuses from anyone about
    "it's too damned cold".

    What do you think?

    Hope my inventory is low tommorow so I can join you guys on a ride. Here we
    go with those attendence problems my boss was talking about.
