Talking N. Dallas rider getting my bike today!!! 2009 Black new.

It's been a longtime coming! Today is the day and I had to leave work early because I didn't feel good... (cough .. I'm excited to see that there are about 3-4 others in this area (Denton/N.Dallas) that ride as well. Anyway, I'll post some picks once I get it home, hopefully in one piece (I have to pass by the airport to get it home..) Talk to you all soon!

"Ride on ride on!"

Good for you....you got the fast, sexy black one. Don't be surprised if the other riders snub you a bit...insecurities and all, ya know.

Thumbs up Blasted stickers...

So I decided to take off the stickers without any fancy fluids. Just a little (a LOT) elbow grease... My thumbs have dime size blisters from rubbing the sticky gunk residue the stickers left. Builds character I think. The bike seems EXTRA fast since it's black AND the stickers are gone..

Ride on ride on!

Wow, I am off of CR94 which sits right in front of the Celina Baseball Fields, etc.

You are way to close to not come on over.

Keep going into Grayson County and ride up into Hagerman Wildlife Refuge near Lake Texoma. No trails to speak of but a nice place to explore.

Gray-haired riders don’t get that way from pure luck.
