Danny...looking around at this long and seemingly interminable process..went for a ride to Tulalip WA on Saturday on a loaner...it was pretty good...but can't decide yet...I'm looking for that special bike.

Dr. John...I thought preachers like too much info specially at confessions...lol

George, yes I have to admit it is

Lance said...

Baron, I see you went to Tulalip. Maybe you won enough for the new bike????

mq01 said...

"that special bike". ah yes... baron, you will know it when you see it. and if you cant decide yet then you probably have not yet met.

I like something low and powerful so I can get away from the wise guys.
Also some nice color like red or yellow gold.Not purple and a quiet motor so I don't disturb the neighbors at night

Hi Baron! Great machine, it looks!!

Blogtrotter (not me, I’m stuck here ;)) is profiting from the holidays in Lisbon this week and has a tour of Lake Galve, one of the beautiful lakes near Trakai, to show you! Hope you enjoy and have a great week!

Lance...yes I did go to Tulalip on a test ride...didn't gamble but did have their buffet dinner $15/person...pretty good value and stuff. Hopefully I'll put some pictures of that trip up this week.
