I have been away from the site a while. I seem to get into "Fishing" mode thru the warmer months and with my limited time, I tend to visit the fishing sites more than any other.

Anyway, how have you all been. Me? Well, the wife and I are great and we are finally seeing some cooler weather around here. It even rained for the first time in 6 months (it seems like anyways).
It was over 100 f almost every day thru the end of June till a week or so ago. Texas is in a record drought and anyone with a fresh water boat has been high and dry this year. Lakes are low, boats are sitting in dirt that use to be boat slips, ect.

That and we came close a couple times to being in the line of fire of a couple of those Texas Wild Fires you have seen on the news.

But all that crap aside, the bike is running great. I still ride most days to work and here the last two weeks it has been AWESOME!
Funny how a 20 minute ride can wash away the 12 hour work day. The weather has been so nice, I have a ear to ear grin by the time I am up to freeway speeds every day.:D
A couple times last week, instead of going to lunch, I just rode around.

I don't care how dang cold it gets here this winter, if it ain't raining or ice storm? I will be riding!!:D

I lived in North Texas for 23 years, I felt your pain all the way up here to NE Oklahoma. It was so hot here I only had my boat out 3 times this year, now that I bought the GW I don't even think about the lake.

Well, well. Did you make it to " Wing-Ding " with your secret presentation ? The problem with a long term absence is the typing you have to do to catch everyone else up to date.

No Chop, we did not make it to WingDing. The "Secret" is not here yet either, it has been delayed and will not be here till first of the year and is the main reason we did not do WingDing.
That and the last you heard from me was on our trip to Ottawa Canada. The Wife's Step Dad passed away and we had to make an emergency 2100 mile trip. That kinda tapped the bank account so we blew off WingDing all together.

It's been business as usual other than that. We have done quite a bit of traveling though the last several months. Made a couple of trips to Lake Charles.
Then in August we went to Bradenton Florida to buy a new Chrysler 200 Limited Hard top convertible for the wife. On the way back we stayed a day/night on Anna Marie Island, stayed a day/night in Wort Walton Beach, visited the casino's in Biloxi MS, then on the last day, stopped and had diner in New Orleans and hit Harra's Casino for a few hours.

And before you ask "Why all the way to Bradenton FL for a car?", here is the story on that one. The cheapest I could find that car in Texas was around $34,000. Well I found one at a Chevy dealer with 200 miles on it. The guy bought it, drove it home and decided he did not want it. So he traded his Can Am Spyder and the Chrysler 200 plus some cash for a brand new Vette.
I bought the Chrysler for $24,750 and well worth the trip to Florida to save almost $10k!

Here is a picture of Dawn in her new Car, she really really has been wanting this one since they hit the show rooms in March!

Thank you Eric, it's good to see you guys again too.
I have been thinking about buying AlleyKat exhaust for the wing and started weening my self off the fishing sites and back to the MC crowds.
Now if I can just find a deal on a set of AlleyKats, life will really be good!
