    Finally a vacation

    Starting my first vacation in 2 years. Needed it badly. Weather is still good enough to get some rides in but main reason is to build 180 foot of fence in the back yard. A break from work to get some work done, funny how that works. Anyway I'll get some progress photos up soon. Got all my...

    Finally.

    My bike has been sitting almost a year now due to travel. Every time I come home for the weekend there's not enough time left after fixing shit around the house and putting out fires to do more than start it, warm it up and listen to it in the garage. Which really sucks cause I just finished...
