Memorial Day Holiday (caution)

Well, I'm gonna blow outta here in a few hours for holiday weekend vacation.

The rest of you take care and have a safe riding weekend. I don't wanna come back and read about any of you being a holiday accident statistic. Do keep in mind that there will be more cages out there this weekend due to the holiday travel and be alert.

Ciao

Well, it's going to rain most the weekend, or at least 50% chance of it. The police will be out, they will be pulling off to make sure they are wearing seatbelts and will be writing tickets. If you riding the super slabs, remember every moron will be out there also trying to kill you, so be careful. I'm doing the smart thing taking the weekend off, BBQ hot italian sausages and drinking a few beers, maybe plant the garden

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

Only rain today on this forcast (and I drove the GSXR to work in it this morning )

The ride home should be the payoff

Beware of Police road blocks... They love doing them this weekend because they figure they will get a lot of DUI's. Be safe.

I'll be relaxing this weekend. I have a bachelor party to go to Saturday night that's gonna have a BBQ a pool and three professional female dance instructors I'll be taking the HD and plan to spend the night there as there will be a keg of beer available in case I should happen to get thirsty. Don't worry, the bike will be locked in his garage all night so you can safely assume I won't be on the streets. If I learn any new dances I'll be sure to let you all know.
