  • Got the bike shipped to Texas

    So both of my bikes showed up yesterday. The ZZR unfortunately needs a new back tire. Not the fault of the shipper, before I left California to drive here, I found I had a nail in the tire and a slow leak. So I took it out and tried the 'mushroom plug kit' that had been under the seat for the last three years.

    What a piece of crap. It made the whole thing so much worse that even when I went back to the old 'ropes' and used TWO of them, the tire still leaked (just a lot slower now).

    So I need to take off the rear tire and the front, drive down to Plano, and see if the Cycle Gear there has tires. Not sure if I'll get that done this week, or sometime later on. Still got a lot of stuff to move. The old house will go up for Sale around the end of September.

    People are definitely a lot nicer here in Texas. I'm really glad I moved.

    Good to hear you’re adapting nicely to the new locale.

          Watch out for this Jim character - he doesn't post much.

          Welcome to Tejas, Banner. I'm 5 hours away, but maybe we can do some riding when it cools off in Fall.

          Lots of good roads SW of Fort Worth.

          Please think about joining us for a long weekend ride in SE OK & NE Arkansas in October as well.

            Van Alstyne, it's about 60 miles north of Dallas, near Sherman. Right now I'm trying to get a fence contractor so I can fence around the house, so I don't have to worry about the dog when I bring him here next month. Problem is, getting a contractor who isn't already busy. May just end up having to build the fence myself (and I really hate building fences, done it waaaaaay too many times.

              Glad the move worked out for you.

              Maybe you can link up sometime in Arkansas.
              I have neither the time,or the inclination, to explain myself to a man, who rises and sleep under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner, in which I provide it. I'd rather you just say 'thank you' and go on your way.

If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.” ? Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
