Hey, you hard cases riding all the way down from Up Yonder in New England....

If you get 5 hours away from Shady, and it's gotten late from delays or weather or breakdowns, and you just don't feel like pushing it , you've got a place to stay right here.....

Well, isn't that just like us old men!

Got a call from my doctor this morning after some tests, we had a bit of a chin wag, and the long and the short of it is that I'm going to have to miss my first TSMR ever, need to stay close to home and doctors till some things get sorted. Hopefully Alec and Sarah will be there and carry on the tradition, but I'll have to follow the ride vicariously.

Close to 100,000 rider-miles over 21 years of TSMR'ing and no one's been hurt, you guys keep it that way!!

I think I do got this ... but if I don't, I know Someone who does!!

And just when I got the TSMR Norton running good, too .... although I must admit that I was going to set it out Thursday and Friday and let our experts crank it up and ride it around and give opinions on how it's running .... probably still needs something ...
