So I've had a few people ask me how we're doing, how's the bike, etc. Here's the update: The bike is running, however it needs more work before we go to Yuma in two weeks. You can read all about the mechanical stuff over on Big D's blog. We are hanging in there. We're planning two trips to Yuma on the bike. One next month and one at the end of April. Then there's Too Broke for Sturgis in July. I'm hoping to make that one, but I'm not sure yet. How sad is it that we may be too broke for Too Broke? Our finances have been worse. (I have to keep telling myself this.) My checking account is not negative...it's not too positive, either, but not negative. I've been extremely busy with school. I've also been busy avoiding homework. I'm getting pretty good at it, too. Avoiding it, I mean. :) One of our friends earned his road name this week. He told us how he was so tired when he got home from work the other day, he thought his kickstand was down, and it wasn't. There are a few scratches, but no major damage. Then, Friday night he was in our driveway and thought his kickstand was down again. This time his clutch lever left a dent in my Buick. We immediately started the 'Road Name Game'. We had it down to "Dropper" or "Kickstand". Kickstand won. :) Then our BACA president's wife cut his Polar Bear road name patch off his vest. :) A round of Jack & Coke for everyone. And another, and another... yesterday was a tough day. :) Hopefully we'll be going to Yuma in a couple of weeks and I'll have lots of pictures and stories to tell. Until then, ride safe.
