Geez...yer a friggin' poet too? She's gonna be out ridin' while yer home writin'...good stuff though!!!HD-LUX said:"Riding well is like a smooth flowing dance. You are in the most control and have the best chance of avoiding problems when it stops becoming a mental exercise to recite the litany of variables, threats, and tactics in your mind as you approach and move through them. When riding becomes a graceful balance of heightened awareness, power, braking, traction, and weight transfer it goes beyond simply a person on a machine and moves into something greater than the sum of the parts. When it all starts to flow together in an equilibrium of physics; when you expand your senses to take in the bubble of activity around you at all times without trying; when power and braking begin to flow together with no one force either ending or beginning at any specific point; when traction and centrifugal force melt together into a waltz of balanced actions and equal reactions; and when weight transfer and steering input become part of a graceful flow of energies transmitted through your arms and mass to the contact patch and beyond -- that's when it changes and you go beyond just transportation. It becomes something beautiful and natural and perfect in a world controlled at the most basic levels by quantum physics and Relativity. Not an out of place man-made thing just surviving another ride. But a graceful, flowing, harmony of forces and awareness all perfectly balanced and countered to add up to zero at the end of each and every ride."
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

:hmmm: gonna have to look into visiting him at home...don't ya think Wyo?wyodude said:Shoulda done it
Doug and John were doing hole shots off of every light. I had a hard time keeping up
Anyhoo, Doug bailed at Quantico, John and Linda bailed at Pohick Rd and I headed up Rt 1 to the casa de wyo.
I like that "Casa De Wyo"
'Bout 150 miles RT. Weather was great for late December.
Next time you and yer missus *have* to come along.
'been tryin' to make that happen for a while now...guess he doesn't want his wife around us good lookin' guys???
We gotta get you out one of these days Joe.joediver said:Hi like what you guys have done with the place. NoVA is sort of like North East in a mid atlantic sort of way.
HD-LUX, she should have plenty of get up and go, the other half's 883L does.
See you around.
Just keep an eye open and be ready to jump...I got a delinquent patch waitin' for ya...joediver said:No plans that I know of, let me know when and where.
Wyo, I'm dying to see your bike -- it was down to a a coin flip for me between the SE 103 or the Jims 120, I want a gander at the other choice. :brows:
