I rode a demo bike from the porch of the store to service....was like kissing my sister.

Well, its official I will be off this God awful schedule April 4th. I will probably take the scoot out for a quick ride before I take some shit apart to do my tax season/ outage money mods.

Targeting Monday, home opener and 1st ride of 14......does it get any better than that?

I think I have it all together, so a ride tomorrow will tell. No idea where I'll go but I'm going for a ride.

Ride over to Redneck Medics and hang out! Bagger Dave and I are meeting at 11 at the BP Gas Station at 10 Mile and I-94 (exit 228 off I-94) and then heading out to RNM's

Rode Saturday just to warm up the fluids (So I could change them), down to the gas station and back. 10 mile round trip, in just my leather coat and gloves... brrr!!! Then 4 of us got out for a 75 mile ride. Stopped often to warm up. I agree, Good to get out again!!! Been a LONG winter!

I'm hatin this outage schedule. Working nights 6 days/ week for the last 56 days sucks balls. I keep hearing my local neighbor scoots gettin ripped up and down the hood during the day while I'm trying to sleep and it just makes it that much harder to fall asleep. Oh well, doesn't really matter, being that its the end of the outage there isn't much to do and since I'm new to my shop I have no qualifications to do anything so I don't get bothered to go out on the jobs much anymore. Its cool, I don't mind sittin here and lookin at my laptop on Reddit, Motorcycle parts stores online, In ear monitor sites lookin for shit to buy and read to stay awake.

I work thursday night for the last night of this God forsaken outage and start my training on the 7th. I will be pulling the bike off the lift and possibly tearing apart the fairing to get the tweeter pod off and then remove the inner heat shields to send them off to Paul and have him paint me up an inner fairing job. I will also be placing an order with Nasty Baggers for the shift linkage. Looks like a form only mod season for me. :( perhaps I will have to look at what the fuel moto upgrades could do? That my be a cool little road trip for me and the OL to get away from the kids for a weekend. Some phone calls to make when back on the normal schedule of the living.

Got out yesterday as well and enjoyed it so much, I rode the Glide to work today! Now if the moisture will hold off until midnight, I can ride it home too!
