  1. Shipped my Road Glide seat off to Rick Butler this morning. I have put some miles on it and was pleasantly surprised with it for a stock seat. I've done a Saddle Sore and a Bun Burner on it so I know that I can do a thousand mile day on it with no major problems. There is still room for improvement though so I figured that with the snow on the ground, it was a great time to let him work his magic.
  2. I usually don't have a problem tripping the traffic light sensors on the big ol' RSV but twice in the past week I got stuck. I wanted to know how they work and was surprised that they do not detect weight. Maybe everyone else knew this already, but I'm slow. http://www.wikihow.com/Trigger-Green-Traffic-Lights
  3. http://us.mg5.mail.yahoo.com/ya/download?mid=1%5f7964%5fAN1VimIAATN2TrwDsgOobjnjttU&pid=2&fid=Inbox&inline=1 A mother is driving her little girl to her friend's house for a play date. ' Mommy ,' the little girl asks, 'how old are you?' 'Honey, you are not supposed to ask a lady her age,' the mother replied. 'It's not polite.' 'OK', the little girl says, 'How much do you weigh?' 'Now really,' the mother says, 'those are personal questions and are really none of your business.' Undaunted, the little girl asks, 'Why did you and Daddy get a divorce?' 'That's enough questions, young lady! Honestly!' The exasperated mother walks away as the two friends begin to play. ' My Mom won't tell me anything about her,' the little girl says to her friend. 'Well,' says the friend, 'all you need to do is look at her driver's license. It's like a report card, it has everything on it.' Later that night the little girl says to her mother, 'I know how old you are. You are 32.' The mother is surprised and asks, 'How did you find that out? 'I also know that you weigh 130 pounds.' The mother is past surprised and shocked now. 'How in Heaven's name did you find that out?' 'And,' the little girl says triumphantly, 'I know why you and daddy got a divorce.' 'Oh really?' the mother asks. 'Why?' http://us.mg5.mail.yahoo.com/ya/download?mid=1%5f7964%5fAN1VimIAATN2TrwDsgOobjnjttU&pid=3&fid=Inbox&inline=1 'Because you got an F in sex.' --
  4. Just wanted to offer my sincere thanks to all of you who attended my maintenance day. It was great to see all our old friends and meet some new ones as well. This is something that Eileen and I truly enjoy doing and once again, we enjoyed it immensely. It would have been perfect had it been about 10 degrees cooler. I told you that I would not let it rain but I just can't seem to get the temperature thing down. When the last had left and Eileen and I were sitting on the front porch having a cup of coffee, we both had the feeling that it was WAY to quiet. It's almost like an "empty next" syndrome. She looked at me and said "maybe we should do this twice a year". I was quiet surprised by that remark and don't know that it would be a good idea but I was surprised that she said it. I think though that having it once per year makes it a bit more special. If we ever DO decide to do it twice per year, I'm thinking that the fall one would just be for socializing and NOT for maintenance. A lot of work got done and if I try to name all that helped with the many projects then I will surely miss some people. V7Goose is always MAJOR help though as well as Squidley, SkyDoc, Monty and so many others. This just couldn't happen without the help of so many of you. If somebody was there to lend a hand for you and you want to thank them publicly here, please do so. Again, a big thanks to each and every one of you who made the trip. You folks really touch our hearts and you probably have no idea what a huge part that VentureRider plays in my life. You are all very special people. Some of you are so special that perhaps a bit of medication would help.
  5. What a great day with Mary and GaryN. I got to take them to places here they have not been. I think they were pleasantly surprised. Maybe Mary will post some of her pictures. Again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARY!!!!!
  6. Took an MSF ERC (Experienced Rider's Course) yesterday and PASSED! It was a HOT mourning and instructors were kind enough to take 5-10 minutes breaks between each lesson. This course was held on an Military base , so I had to make sure I unloaded all my munitions ......bummer. Mostly HD's , 1- Honda, 1- Boulevard, and only myself on a RSV being the largest bike out there. For you riders whom have a harder time keeping the RSV upright in a parking lot speeds, you need to take this course! Needless to say it was not also FUN , but learned a few things and fine-tuned slow turning maneuvers. Instructors was surprised to see a large RSV jump over a 2 x4 (approaching road obstacle lesson) as they claimed I hopped over that board and at least 4" off the ground. I started out a bit nervous to say the least, but quickly looked at it as more their to have fun and relax and became one with the bike though I soaked in all info. Seriously, can you imagine that ? . All them painted lines on the course really played a mind trip on me at first. Each course lesson was conducted by at least a minimum of 4 passes after an instructor ran through the drill and another explained from his booklet with pictures of the course. We did figure 8's in widths of a tight 2 lane road down to a single width of one lane as well as Tight S turns, Feathering the clutch to high idle break control. Found out a lot of us focus on turns directly in front of ourselves and not turning the head and looking forward in our turns. One course was teaching us the brake abruptly in straight line, in a swerve or in a curve. I was surprised to hear all them HD's with ABS lock up their rear tires. Next time I take the course, it will be pulling the BEERCART and/or 2 up. If you haven't already taken a MSF , please do .You will learn more about yourself, your bike, and take advantage as a qualified instructor can observe and help fine tune your abilities. BEER30
  7. I purchased two Nitro 1/2 helmets from Iron Pony for less than $25 each and was surprised at how closely the color matches my 2000 MM. I picked them up for protection for my grandchildren when we do short rides. Last fall I bought the Vega full face in the same color from Iron Pony and was surprised at how it matched my colors as well. They may be made by the same company. They have other colors as well. Beats not having protection for the grandkids when you can't afford expensive helmets for everyone.

    A bittersweet day

    Well, our youngest, who is our 24 yr old daughter got engaged today! She is one who plans everything so she says she needs a two year engagement to get everything ready. Who are we to argue. The sad part of the day is that my father-in-law was disgnosed with stage 4 Melanoma last fall and was only given months to live back then. We are surprised that he is doing as well as he is but the sad reality is that he will not be around to see his granddaughter's wedding. Sometimes life just isn't fair.
  9. First decided to finally finish assembling my Piggybacker. Early afternoon I was pleasantly surprised by a visit from Niagara135 (Steve) and his wife Cindy and had an enjoyable chat. After they left, I went back to the task at hand, only to be surprised a few minutes later by Big Tom and Tater, along with his friend Daryl (sp) and his wife whom we are embarrased to say we can't remember her name but were glad to meet the two of them. Got to swing a leg over a Valkrye and was thoroughly impressed with how low it is and how easy to balance. Me thinks I would like a touring version of one of those!! Anyways, after a nice visit by those 4 I actually got the Piggybacker in one piece, just a little bit more to do. Sure is nice to see something that looks like a trailer rather than three large pieces laying around! Weather was super, company was greatly appreciated, and I got something accomplished!!
  10. I'm surprised that YOU haven't done these. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Yamaha-Royal-Star-Tour-Deluxe-Venture-Saddlebag-Bra_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ10066QQihZ011QQitemZ320264948362QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW
