Dammit, Jim!

It was a fun little ride... nice meeting some new folks in addition to the "usual suspects". The 'Rod still corners like crap, but I did manage to scrape it in a new spot. Was the "5" jinx broken, or was that just because Andy wasn't leading?

:laughing

LOL, Cherry kept quoting the proper directions to turn, so I figured he was good to go. Well, apparently when you are out in the farmlands, "All the roads look a like." But how is LITH different from Burbonais? Dunno, I thought we were more "city like" than down there. LOL

All in all, a good day minus the U-turns, which I was laughing my ass off about and thinking about Troy!

Only thing that concerned me was almost getting T-Boned at the first U-Turn. I didn't catch who it was, else I would have mentioned it. No biggie. I wish I didn't have things to do around the house, but the next three weeks, are all bike weeks!

WOO HOO!!
Ciao,
Lupi

The #5 ginx only seems ot work when Andy is rider number 3 or 4. He was rider 2 today.

Sorry for the U-turns. That was my first time trying to lead that route. Some of those roads all look the same after a while.

Later Andy, Kevin and I met up with Troy and hit twisties all over the place from LITH to Wilmington including Starved Rock. IT was sweet. Andy & I took ride on Kevin's Ducati. Ohhhhh... Desmo power.... I like it... I like it a lot. My next bike may be an RC-51. Although my F4i held off Andy on the 996 from a rolling start at 50-140mph (I did cheat a little by starting in 1st gear :D)

Great day.

Troy is still the U-turn king. Long live the king.!!!:twofinger

Hey now...I dont lead anything...you guys choose to follow me no matter how bizarre or twisted my path I am leading you guys on is:laughing I really should start a cult or something:evil After watching the nominees for most terrifying rider on the way to LITH, I thought I would hang with Cherry on this one...so since we were always at least a mile ahead of everyone else, one could say that I wasnt on the ride...so you guys were safe from the Curse of the Rabbit:twofinger

Yeah baby, that was one cool 100 mile test ride on the 996, thanks alot Kevin! Impressions...you feel like a champion WSB contender on it...extra even power band, holds a line perfectly railing through sweepers, tells you exactly what is going on in the tire patch dept. front and rear, and hits a nifty indicated 165 (probably 160) on some nice farm roads. Plus it sounds awesome! Best of all...it smokes a FZ1:twofinger but cant walk past an F4i for some reason:hmmm Awesome bike.

OMFG...

I don't usually post a lot of shit... BUTT...
With you guys talking shit, I have to re-BUTT...

DISCLAIMERS:
(OK - get this part in advance... I'm a little sarcastic... a little...)
(No, really... get to know me before you judge me by text only)
OK, here we go....

The "Navigationally Challenged" comment is BS!
I took you all over IL's farmlands and we were never LOST!!!

Your left handed compliment about the FACT that I found some sweet roads won't make up for it either beemer-boy...

I am the U-Turn King - *BECAUSE* - I am out there blazing NEW trails and explorig NEW LINKS and SIDE ROUTES to our existing ones...

There are SOOOO many more places I have mapped out to explore, but only MYSELF and the mighty FZ1 appear to be capable of the task...

You guys on the sportbikes OR the BMW's or exoctic 996 twins (interpreted from Italian, Ducati means "pain" or "pain in the ass" literally) or you little 600's - NONE of you are willing to go the distance to explore these new, unknown roads (now if only I remember HOW TO FIND THEM AGAIN)!

They all complain - "you do too many u-turns, too many wheelies, you go too fast, I need gas for my little over revved 600, I need to rest, my wrists are sore, my ass is sore, my back is sore, your legs are sore, you have a headache, your hungry, you need a cigarette, you need a drink..." STFU and ride....

< EMINEMIM >

wELL, THIS LOOKS LIKE A ROUTE TO ME...
SO EVERYBODY just FOLLOW ME...
'CAUSE WE NEED A NEW - ROUTE-YOU-SEE...
AND IT FEEL SO EMPTY WITHOUT ME!!!!

SO LET'S GO DO SOME BIG WHEEL-IES!
YEAH - wE DON'T NEED NO CON-TRO-VERSY...
WE'RE JUST TRYING TO FIND SOME TWISTIES...
AND IT FEELS SO GOOD - 2 RIDE - 2 MEEEE....

wELL, I'M NEVER GONNA' STOP - YOU SEE...
EVEN when THE GF's ON BACK - WE WHEELIE...
MY GOD - SHE'S SUCH A - WICKED HOTTIE...
WHEN WE'RE 2-UP - YOU WANNA' FOLLOW ME...

wELL, THIS LOOKS LIKE A ROUTE TO ME...
SO EVERYBODY just FOLLOW ME...
'CAUSE WE NEED A NEW - ROUTE-YOU-SEE...
AND IT FEEL SO EMPTY WITHOUT ME!!!!

< /EMINEM >

Next time - I'll just take my maps (and the GF) and go off for 500-800 miles in the boonies with my motherfucking FZ1 superbike... and maybe another 100 miles I'll run twice... because when I'm alone and I find shit, I do U-turns over and over and hit those sweet spots again and again....

wELL, THIS LOOKS LIKE A ROUTE TO ME...
SO EVERYBODY just FOLLOW ME...
'CAUSE WE NEED A NEW - ROUTE-YOU-SEE...
AND IT FEEL SO EMPTY WITHOUT ME!!!!

PS - Hand & Foot signals - SAVE LIVES....
Pass it back...
Pass it back...
Pass it back...

:evil Oh Troy, what will we ever do with you:laughing Since you are on the Eminemim kick...you forgot to add the lyrics..."Everyone likes to discuss me, that must mean, I'm DISGUSTING"...which you are with the new girlfriend...I hate you I am so jealous...you suck!:twofinger

Besides...you know us BMW and Ducati guys are just a bunch of Posers, we cant ride worth a shit (you have seen my glorious examples of top notch riding with the cemetary ride and last nights revisit of the ABS saving my ass, again:p ), so we have to tear into you somehow! We buy those fancy bikes to look cool you know since we dont have the skillz:evil

Come on now, did we whine about the speed and wheelies? You werent riding with the nominees for the most terrifying riders also today, were you? :hmmm Bahahaha:laughing :laughing

See... I'm just trying ot improve your riding skills. Of course wiht that Busa power, haven't you learned to just plant foot, light up the rear and spin it around. Why makea 5 point turn and do it the hard way.:twofinger

Damn, I must have REALLY been far behind, I didn't see any U-turns! Except that one where Anna, myself and the next to last guy got caught behind some farm vehicle and missed a corner.
Even if I could turn good I'd be lost in the straights. Everybody there has 30hp over me and little Suzuki.

'Twas good though, even managed to get out again for about an hour after doing LOTS of yardwork. I got rid of those 3 dead plants in front of my house. Now I have 2 green flowery things. Still need one more.

LOL, Mike - those U-turns just brought back memories of the years I rode with the Shriners!:laughing

Never fear, Ron... the hunt for parts is on and hopefully the '98 will be back on the street before too long. Then we can practice, practice, practice!!!! I'm gonna catch you, Mike and Andy some day...

Nominees for most terrifying rider???:hmmm

You're not one of them, but you are on the proposed recipients list for the planned "bike reallocation" where the "most terrifying" trade bikes with those on the reallocation list so that better use out of the bikes is accomplished:evil By the way...would you happen to have a Bigwheel or Tricycle laying around that you could trade with?:evil :evil :twofinger
