That's my kind of terrain , rugged and tough. Makes me homesick for Arizona. That full-face helmet's lower rims seem to suggest a perpetual smile on you. Why is that ?

Yea and if you stop in Marfa in West Texas, there is a gasoline station that sells ethanol free gas.

:)

I am waiting for that stupid subsidy to end one of these years.

update...the AMA managing editor contacted me two weeks ago..last week they sent out a photographer and had him do a photo shoot of me on my wing. I think only one of the 100 photos he took will be in next months issue. Evidently there are going to be a few wings shown ....

If you map out Roswell nm and El paso texas it will take you right through it.....

I have severalhelmets two full face..a half and I just started breaking in my Nolan. the black helmet was my rocket helmet...I am particularly fond of it...and many people have noticed the perpetual smile on it....:D

I am doing my Texas IB and 1500 miles in 24 hours weekend after next...I postponed the ride ...it was suppose to be last weekend bu the weather was going to be bad wind, hail and cold at night ....

Hey Lee,

Do you get any crap from your fellow Iron Butters about earning patches while on a 2012 Wing? I imagine the guy on the 250 Enduro is a bit envious!:D

Tat I earned my first four on the Rocket with only a bug screen. The wing is most definetleyl more comfortable. I have not done an IB ride yet on the wing next weekend will be my first. As for my Rocket I traded it in to cover the extra cost of the wing.....the putz who bought it two weeks ago totaled it yesterday. The guys at the shop showed me...I had it all that time with all the mileage and not a scratch...
