Trouble sleeping tonight!

Feel like a kid on Christmas eve... First trip on my 2007 tomorrow to go hang out with an Army buddy in Tunica for a few days. Already impressed that my nav system knows where Goldstrike casino is! I've not done an update so hopefully it won't lead me to any closed bridges or anything. Not looking forward to riding through the corner of Memphis but it's the shortest way there.

yep, know that feeling, I just awoke from an afternoon nap....
recovering from last nights all night session pulling an alternator on my bike, and a lot of wiring rework that I found again that I did not like.

Now, here it is, almost 10:30 PM and I'm heading back out to the garage to install the new alternator that is patiently waiting for me to open the box it came in.

How many miles will you travel?

Only a biker knows why a dog puts his head out of a window of a moving vehicle.

Just a few hundred going and coming. Just a chip shot for a Goldwing but looking forward to it.

Update: Had a great ride here and am enjoying the casinos. Got awful hot in the afternoon. Mississippi sure is humid and buggy. Looking forward to my ride home tomorrow.

a few hundred miles- we do that for a lunch run in northern Ca, lots of winding roads to explore on your way to that perfect burger, scenic view to take pics of bike, ice cream stop- whatever your thing is~

Ck out a cooling towel to use on neck and face, see Endura Cool or similar brand at any major store, $10-20 for hours of relief!

It was a short trip even by my broken standards but good to be back on a bike again. Had trouble with my neck and shoulder on the way back which I was hoping would not happen with the Goldwing.

And I do have one of those... pretty good stuff, use it every time for mowing.

I had pain between my shoulder blades when I got my bike. I put on some handlebar risers and I use a kidney belt on longer rides and my pain is pretty much gone. You may want to try it.

it is just awesome for me now.
