To Buster's...!

I went to meet Mark B4 yesterday for a ride around napa and some good BBQ at Buster's. We arranged to meet at 12. Naturally, I got there at 1:30. In my defense, Hwy37 was booboo, so I was forced to go through Napa and it is one big cluster**** of 12, 121 and 116. It's like it is intentionally designed to get you lost. And lost I did get. I get lost when it's not complicated.

Mark was patient, however, and we were on the road at 1:32 (after the most epic piss of my life). A little easy dirt and backroads to Busters. Tri-tip sandwiches, and then a mellow ride back with lots of scenery. Then we leaned on the bikes and talked and spat for a little while. Then I headed home. 37 was back on track and I was home at sunset. Didn't take too many pics, but here are a few:







Mark should have some video...Veep?

Wish I could've joined you guys! Buried in school & work stuff.

I too noticed MB4's new lid. Somehow, I'm sure it can carry more beer.

LOL. It was a nice afternoon for sure. I thought Mark's new lid was worthy of some exposure.

He got a new jacket, too. (the other one now resides in the Smithsonian)

Mark, hook up the vids, dude. Francine wants to see Dadda ride.

I don't know which photo I like better.. The Mark/Fish photo, or the one where he's emerged from the top of your head, backwards.

Thanks for the photos, you JERKS!!!

I've got the itch to ride, really bad!! The roads around here are white with salt, and the snow on the sides of the roads is melting during the day and making ice streaks across the roads at night/early morning..

I'm tired of driving my car and truck. My KLR's battery is charged and the only thing I need to do in the spring is swap air filters. (I forgot when prepping for winter). I've got 1000ish miles left on the 761's and have a set of T63's waiting to be put on...

And then you guys post photos of riding to BBQ!!! You're EVIL!!!

but I wanna ride!! Thanks for the photos!!!

And Danno, where was it that you lived when you were in FL?? Was it near Perry?

Busters is pretty damn good, but the Bee's always make me nervous.

Sorry Dan.

Yeah, we're lucky all right. We pay for it though. My rent is absurd. Think about that. Oh, and we ate NO bacon. That would have been TOO cruel.

Hmmm...there were no bees. Maybe they are dissapearing...
