It was a nod to Warren Zevon's "Lawyers Guns and Money",  but I find it unwise to disclose if I am armed or not. ;)

Probably should have added condoms to the list, and a list of very agreeable underground doctors.

Ahh missed that.... As a married man I don't need condoms for a trip. In fact the Triple is a sex substitute. I don't get any so I go for a ride instead ;D

Oh, don't feel bad. I'm a formerly married man who isn't getting any. (mostly by choice) My real problem is my sex-substitute isn't putting out lately either! :jerkit: :jerkit:

It's not the hand that's uncooperative. It's Speedy that's still in pieces on the floor of the garage, frigid and unresponsive!.

bugger and all that, how bad is Speedy???
Speedy is back together and running well, if not particularly pretty. The front fender is now black, and the SkyKing sliders have been installed. Unfortunately I'm back to school now and won't have much time to ride. Wish I could ride it to school some, but I have a ton of junk to carry with me for classes. :violent1:



Thanks for asking though! I did get to put around last sunday. Felt good.

Ever felt up your bike and wished it had a bra to remove? :p

Get the ventura pack/rack system can carry heaps! I used the small bag and had clothes for 4days and some spares. The large bag er... obviously can carry more :)
