    Sold my one and only bike about a dozen years ago. Getting the itch and have been looking at something to commute on and just have fun street riding. Maybe a weekend trip. Looking for a more upright riding geometry and more sport bike type responsiveness but touring bike comfort. Yea, there is no such thing but considering these bikes: Kawasaki Versys, Suzkui V Strom and a BMW F 800 GT. Haven't been for the all important test ride yet. So many bikes, so many niches. Stopped at two dealers today. Yin and yang. BMW sales person knowledgeable, good listener and had great advice. The Suzuki/Kawasaki sales person the polar opposite. Didn't know squat, ignored any thing I said and started with the biggest most expensive bike in the dealership which was a tricked out Gold Wing. Can't say as I remember that much from my riding days and really don't know much about bikes in the first place. At least it should be fun looking.

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Condolences from my ice box to yours. Our temp this am was -2F. We have warmed to 0F. Current windchill -28F. Glad it was just a clogged intake. Easy fix :).

    What are you reading now?

    A Les Paul Gibson or Leo Fender Stratocaster? Book review is intriguing and I'll be adding "The Birth of Loud" to my reading list. How can any book that devotes an entire chapter to Jimi Hendrix's "Star Spangled Banner" not be good https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2019/01/how-electric-guitar-was-born/580969/?utm_content=edit-promo&utm_campaign=the-atlantic&utm_source=facebook&utm_term=2019-01-23T15%3A49%3A54&utm_medium=social&fbclid=IwAR1yRv227ZOCG2E0QNyGcFsWmjcLIAbv-eGkq6zaLfCd5hLKbqO6QlLDXL8&fbclid=IwAR3lV2czwFZHomp5jZX4zu6G6lbCL7al2S268e-BqwgdzT-HCq_SdaXei38

    RIP some fuck or another

    Just found out a friend of mine died 1/1/19. George Vuillemot was a good ole boy. Lived life his way and lived it to the fullest. 82 years young when he died. He was a bat boy for the Chicago Cubs and had several autographs. No doubt valuable but to him they were priceless memories. Raced cars on dirt tracks into his 70s. I met George when I needed a dog trainer. We developed a good and long lasting friendship. He trained the famous line of Smith English Setters for many years. Tough as nails and could out work me in his 60s even though there is a 16 year difference in our ages. Heart of gold. I'll have to look for the setter painting he gave me tonight as I have it stored away as a memory of him. I will toast George properly when I get home tonight. RIP in my friend. May all the dogs you run be Field Champions and may you win every race.

    Fuck in snow

    Funny. My mother just asked how I'll get back from Drummond Island in October if it snows. She was not amused when I said drive.

    RIP John McClain. An honorable politician. Often disagreed with him but he always had my respect.

    Jeff, Been away from HC for a while. Catching up. Bike looks great with the bars installed. Klim is heavy duty vs Olympia, Firstgear or Rev It and will always be warmer. In hot weather I wear an older Firstgear Rush which is actually cooler than riding without a jacket ..... unless you're stuck in traffic. Incredible ventilation. Bought the bohnarmor for under jeans but haven't worn it yet. Always looking for something with great protection but cooler to ride in. I don't do group rides or go to MOA or other meetups. Occasionally ride with friends but that's as close as I get to traveling in a group. Enjoy!

    Did you read the Amazon reviews? Apparently anyone can access your speakers by bluetooth. One person said they were well built and sounded good but he woke up to music blaring one night after his neighbor figured out he could access the speakers. Funny unless you are the one who is pranked.

    Animal lovers

    Many of us enjoy our pets and love animals. I make it a habit to support businesses that support my causes including animal welfare. A local business has a long history of donating to the local animal shelter/humane society. http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2016/10/bissell_hosts_local_animal_she.html#incart_river_home No disclaimer needed. Other than having clients that work there I have no vested interest in the company. Have one of their carpet cleaners which works as advertised. Something to consider when you purchase products that they make.

    Might consider pannier protectors ... that plastic is expensive. On the K1600 forum they love Klim and BMW gear. I find the 400-600 stuff works just fine for me. If you're taking the GS off road you'll want adventure or track boots if you don't have them. Have fun!
