ya c'mon guys, get out and ride. unfortunately for me, due to some health issues i haven't been on my bike since july 1st.
Hot as ballz here. The sun is killer. And I'm a wimp. But 108F really doesn't feel all that good on a bike.
The only independent MC shop I know of is just a mile away. And that would be a cheat. The point is to ride places.
I'll leave this one to someone else.

I got most of the speed limit signs this morning from 0 to 65. Took the V-Strom for a ride this morning. It was feeling neglected at putting 12,500 miles on the X.

Next Mark: Your bike and a road, street, highway that has 5 or fifth in the name. 5th St, Ave. Place, Drive, Court, etc.
Ride Safe.

Take me to the River---Talking heads.
South River begins up near Atlanta Federal penitentiary and flows south toward Jackson lake.
A sewer plant upriver adds smell to the water. Good to have the shoals, natures water cleaner.
Flood waters have carried trees, balls, junk. I am about a one quarter mile distance from it.
A bridge with 5 piers created a large log jam which caused the deck to separate some.
Some repair was done and another tropical storm came and shifted the bridge more.
A new bridge has done well since that time.
I visited the Snapping Shoals area many years ago, did not know it was an active
business involved in power generation.
I met one of the two brothers that own the company today.
The main item was the first generating plant on the river in this area.

The next mark::
Power generating Plant. There are big ones and small peak demand units.
If no success then cell towers have generators.
Last choice something like a Generac will do.

This is the APS (Arizona Public Service) generation site in Tempe AZ. It used to have a large oil fired generator until that became environmentally unpopular.
Next Mark: A business name that has a number in its name.
Ride safe.

“Jenny I got your number”.
Didn’t realize when I was getting gas, fancy that.

Next mark: Don’t remember who came up with this, but thought it was clever. Your bike and a water tower, but one that is not in the city/town you live in.

Perfect. Keep 'em coming! (now that riding season has finally started).
The "not in your town" qualifier is just perfect.
Started? We here have maybe 2 months left before the white sh## flies.

Right. Down here, we have no white sh*t. We have sun and 100+F for months.
Now that it cooled down nicely (to mid 90s), we can venture out and enjoy life.
I assume once I can ride again, I will be one of the regulars in this thread while y'all are all snowed in up there. Let's call it "change of guards".

I trade the handling of my Honda VTX for the handling of my Honda HS928 snowblower.

I got to fix mine, last season it kept pissing me off. 🤪

View attachment 208567
Just had to replace my 2 tires. One last year wouldn't hold air, so I tubed it. A couple weeks ago, sitting in a relatively cool, out of the sun barn, I discovered that half the sidewall had developed a giant hernia-like split, and the tube was bulging out. With 14 psi in the tire. Maybe 20-21 yrs. old. Ohtsu brand.
