    Re: Motorcycles

    I've had a few bikes.

    Ever ride an 1100cc muscle bike during a snowstorm in the mountains with 4 inches of snow and ice on the road at 1am in sneekers and a light winter jacket?
    Ever get smashed in the teeth by a grasshopper at 65mph?
    Ever sit at an intersection during a full blown Florida downpour with your feet in 6 inches of water with cracks of thunder going on all around?
    Ever dump a 700lb full dress Goldwing with the back seat strapped full of ceramic floor tiles in the middle of a busy road?

    I've done most of that, and caught a yellow jacket in the stomach at 65 too. They can still sting. My ex wife rodé too. She had a bee fly into her helmet on the way home from Sturgis one year.

    That piece of lemon pie stuck in my mind too and I'd sure like to have a pie like that sitting in front of me.

    I think thats the good thing about Grandma's. They always got a nice piece of pie or cake just freshly baked.

    Watching day 5. All I can say is, we got to get this planet back to being a free world so's I can come over there and check out some of those awesome places. The ending to day 5 was interesting. I wouldn't mind finishing up every ride like that.

    Re: Motorcycles

    Been checking out a few peoples touring blogs. There was a guy who wanted to do the US bottom to top so rode to Mexico, crossed the border for the day, then rode up to Canada and caught a ferry, I think it was to Victoria island from Seattle or something. Was interesting. Just a regular family Joe living a dream. Did a whole bunch of YT's on his journey. Lots of amazing scenery.

    Been looking at some aussie tourers. This one's a bit jerky but worth a look. Fair bit of Western Australia from about min 5.

    See if you can find a book 'INVESTMENT BIKER'. Guy rode around the world with his girl friend for 2 years around 1992. Interesting book.

    I'm not much into bikes, but have some friends that have been into them since the late 60's.

    About the lighting kill switch, knew a guy that his wired with a reostat to be able to fade them in and out gently for those midnight getaways.
