As a matter of fact, yes. After much deliberation, we have decided to go triple Darkside. Bridgestone Battleax BT45 on the front and Bridgestone Driveguard on the rear. So there smart ass.

Ride often. Ride far. Ride safe and do much more of both.
Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach him how to surf the GWOF and he won't bother you for weeks, maybe months
I'll be waitin' for you at the end of the road.
If everything had gone as planned, it would not have been an adventure.

When I lost the weight I went back to 2 wheels, but my legs just couldn't take it any longer. The TowPac kit I put on Big Red was working great but then I find this one setting on a ladies property that she forgot about after her husband died. I asked her if she would be willing to sell it and she says maybe. She says what do you think it's worth and I said cleaned up and running about $16,000. Then she said how about $5000 and I couldn't get to the bank fast enough.

I've got a tooth that I may go to Mexico to have pulled so we may be headed your way. I'll let you know if we do and maybe we can meet for coffee along the way. The dentists down there charge $25 Xrays included versus $200 up here plus they want to do all kinds of nonsense. Besides that, the offices down there are cleaner than any I ever been in here in the states.

Whatever excuse you want to use, it'll be great to see you both.

On the way to the bank, did you change your shorts? Or just buy new ones after?

I'm sure you are referring to, I crapped my pants when she gave me a price. If so, no I left it in my shorts because I couldn't believe things like this can happen to me. I'd give it all back though if our youngest and last dog, Loki, hadn't got hit and killed by a car 4 days after we got the bike home.

Congrats, that's a nice looking trike and a steal of a deal if I may add.
