I can't believe you didn't take the bike. I have not ridden my bike in at least a month. In my younger days I never let the bike sit more then two weeks.

I have gear & was out on both bikes in the AM before I put them up for the winter --- in my family room. I think I need some pictures on the walls to compliment the bikes.


I took the ol woman for ribs, she don't ride anymore hehehe. There was still alot of bi***ing.


A fewnotes from yesterday.


Her--There's a terrable draft on the floor of this car. Me--I'm sure there is, I have my window1/2 open because your smoking..


Her--Are the roads this curvy all the way to where we are going? Me--No, they get alot worse.


Her--There's snow on the ground!! Me-- Nochid, we are 6000 ft up & its 24 degrees outside.


Her--Look, those guys have rifles. Me--They might behunting. Did you bring your hat with the antlers?


Her--Whats that orange box thats lit up on the dashboard?Me--Its the digital speedo readout, can you see it? Her--No. Me--Thats a good thing.


Her--This car is no good for a long trip the seats are uncomfortable. Me--Huh? they are 6 way power with a power reclining back, power side bolsters & a 3 section lumbar individually adjustable, whats not to like? Her--There not heated like on my car. Me--GRRRRRRR.


Her--Why don't they have guard rails along this road if you go off the side & go down no one will ever find you. Me--You should take this road when you drive over to see your sister in NC, its a short cut & it will save you alot of time. At this point I wonder for split second what would be worse, loosing the ol woman off the side of a mountain or having the car totaled. Get real, I really like that car.

Woody, I have a 91 Nissan NX2000 that has been trashed by my teenager that you could "borrow". Car only has 191K, shot clutch, clicking CV's and most of the interior sitting I don't know where. Just to make her happy, he changed out the exhaust to a "tuner" exhaust and it is worst riding in that car than on my bike with short pipes. If you wife doesn't make it to her sister's, just let me know as I need to keep insurance on the vehicle because it cheaper than what on a newer car. On a plus side, it does have t-tops that you could remove before you send her out. I can't vouch for the heater, but I know the A/C works (see T-tops comment). You can even use what gas that is in it because I'm such a nice guy.
