My problem is my 4 gallon ass has turned into a 7 gallon ass through the years.

After watching you plug that tire at Willville, I wasn't going to say anything...

I did 1500 miles in Eastern OR last month. My buddie's Suzuki got a flat in Kennewick WA. There was a Harley dealer there that sold Suzukis on the side so we took the bike there. At the service shop we were surrounded by a bunch of Harley posers. My bike was filthy, covered with bugs and dirt from being used in the backcountry, dirt roads and all. The import parts manager came out and saw my '85. He started talking very loud about it being the best motorcycle ever made. Turned a few heads.
