Thanks mate, guess I have made myself look like a bit of a dickhead there:D
Nah, I wouldn't got that far. I almost did the same thing when I first started reading through the post. It went from being idle for several months to being fairly active.

I have it parked on a relative shady street right now wondering if when I get off of duty whether or not I will be missing parts on it.

bought this:



Daytona Helmets

they call it a novelty helmet, but advertise all over that it's DOT approved. made from lamb hide and "The Smallest D.O.T. Half Shell Helmet Ever Made!!" was concerned about it being a 'safe' enough helmet because it doesn't have as much protection as the half helmet i already have and they also call this one a novelty helmet, but i wanted something smaller and if they advertise that it is DOT and it has the DOT mark on it, then it has to be DOT. and anything DOT certified is good by me

We rode a hundred+ miles today. From North Myrtle Beach to Murrells Inlet, SC and back. There has to be 200k to 300k bikes in the area (if not more) for the Myrtle Beach Bike Week/Harley Davidson Cruising the Coast. What fun. Hundreds of vendors hawking their ware. I must have spend $150 on T-Shirts, a mesh jacket, ahem, vest extender, pins and what not. The weather was perfect in the low 70's with low humidity. The only downer was we passed a crash where it appears a cage moved over right and the rider took it off the road to avoid the cage.

We were a group of three that expanded at times to groups of 10 - 20. It's great seeing all the rides - especially at night when a lot of them are lit up. I love bike week.

Hoping to make it to cigar night with a local club I'm checking out...if I'm lucky the rain will be over by then and I'll be able to ride. If not I'll have to cage it until tomorrow!

Today was bring your bike into work day 'LITERALY"


Weather station predicted t-storms for this afternoon,, eh, so what,
well just about two hours ago we had a brief tornado on the ground about 45 miles due west. Storms are heading East at a good clip. So, I brought it inside while I await my ride home.

And I'm sure a certain someone would say that if it was red (or black cherry), you could've outrun that weather.:p

LOL!
I can laugh about it now because I chose to leave at the perfect time. I had to travel west to get home which is the direction the storms approached from. As the first storm cell was just about passed, I had just enough time to head directly towards the next batch of t-storms but choosing the right set of roads south and made it to my house about 15 minutes before.
