A little green tree frog rode on the tank out to Waller and back with\nme. She practiced the "sack of concrete" technique to perfection, though\ni was dismayed by her lack of safety gear. I named her "jackie the\nconcours gurl".\n\nWhile gassing up, I got a "hey man, that's i nice bike. i been thinking\nabout gettin one" from the dude gassing up the SUV next to me, at which\npoint i launched into my usual spiel about investing in a rider's course\nfirst to make sure he really wanted to ride before dropping the coin on\nthe motorcycle.\n\nIn the middle of that, I learned one of the many reasons why one\nshouldn't wear shorts on a motorcycle, and I am now sporting a silver\ndollar sized tailpipe hickie on my calf. Reminded me of my brother's old\ngrand prix with the sidepipes.\n\nAll in all, not a bad ride.
