I had my usual pre-vacation work week from hell. always seems to happen about this time. The nice weather they were predicting all week has turned into cold and damp. I'm half ready and totally burned out. Two dog sitters are lined up and one left. makes me wonder, "are you guys worth it?"

I guess so. I've been going back to the first pages of this board and reading the stories. Who could make that up?. It really has been fun. See some of you in a few days and the rest friday.

Richrd -

It's always been a nell of a trip for you to make, from Omaha Nebraska all the way to Blowing Rock North Carolina, whether it be on the Norton or another bike or hauling bikes for someone in a truck.

You making that trip has always been inspiring to me, whenever I'm thinking "Geez, I don't want to ride 300 miles to Rally X, maybe I'll just bag it", and I for one always enjoy seeing you there, and am forever grateful for the work you did getting me on board the Norton that I was always saying I wanted but never doing it. (I'll be riding it down there this year.)

ON THE OTHER HAND, you've got nothing to prove to anyone - you've done it all, you've done it the hard way over and over again, and the TSMR has been all the better for your example and attendance over the years.

So if it's just time to take a year off, then that's the way it is and if that's what your sanity (or what's left of it) requires, then do that. But if you can see your way clear to coming, I'll enjoy saying hello when I pull up into the BWI parking lot on Friday!!

OK, before Paul can get in and post a bunch of lies about me and my bike, I got four blo is from home, all down hill, when the Norton lost forward drive. It could have been an easy fix, but the question of why it happened was still there.

One option was to trailer it and fix it at Windy's. Option 2 was the old appliance. But I let someone talk me into option 3. Ride the new old appliance.

So I,m sorry, but no Norton for me this year, I can understand if no one wants to be seen with me.

Considering what some folks might be riding I wouldn't worry too much whistle...but not to worry, if it's good enough for Commando Kitty it should be good enough for everyone.

That's a good default position for almost ANYTHING like this. "It's Whatley's fault". You're more than likely right, and even if you're not, everyone will believe it ... !
