    I went for a ride this afternoon...

    Portland Bill, the other side of Weymouth, the scenic way around. 150 mile round trip on nice back roads - with tea and cake (well, I am British) at the lighthouse.

    Bliss.

    Went for a group ride with my old riding school. Weather was cool. Wish the ride was a bit quicker as the butt gets tired in the 1 hour range. May have to actually spend my Amazon coupons on a seat... The wife came on the back like a good sport. Had lunch at a local biker joint. There was some biker gang thing going on. Lots of different patches with police officers taking pictures...dinner and a show

    Not today...

    Our Wednesday meeting at work was relocated to a local diner. After breakfast and the meeting, the waitress stopped and asked..

    What are you wearing?

    Motorcycle gear (sightly confused, I thought the helmet made it obvious)

    Who makes it?

    Motoport (pointing to the logo)

    Can I touch it?

    Umm, ok.

    Ooo, it's nice.

    Thanks.

    That was probably the strangest conversation about my gear that I've ever had.

    Installed ram mount balls on NC and the Nomad so I can quickly transfer the X Grip and arm between the two. Tomorrow morning, we ride. So ready.

    Was out running errands on the NC750x. Nice sunny and warm day. Somewhat humid. Weatherman said rain would come mid-to-late afternoon. Left the veterinary clinic with some meds at 12:30pm to head directly home. Sky to the west was getting dark but I thought the rain was still an hour or more away.

    I was wrong.

    Turned off the 4 lane a few minutes later onto the back roads. And then the buckets of rain started falling from the heavens. 5 minutes of downpour and I was at the garage door to my house. Wet. Very wet. I was wearing mesh gear. My waterproof riding gear was comfortably hanging in the closet inside.

    Damn weatherman.

    Seat concepts is a keeper.

    Logged right at 250 HARD miles today trying to keep up with my buddy on his 160 hp Multistrada. The Multi is so badass. 3x the engine of the NC. I beat the guts out of it today running with him. He used to be a WERA racer, and currently owns a Ducati Panigale, a built Monster, and this Multistrada. He got away from me once or twice, but the NC done well in keeping up with him for the most part in the twisties.

    Ran through Little River canyon, then backroads down to Mt Cheaha State Park. First time I been down there, wow was I missing out. Closest thing to a track that I have ever seen. Solid 50-75 mph sweepers that maintain a predictable arc, good smooth asphalt and fairly wide 2 lane. Man, it was fun and I am beat. The PR5's stick so well, had em tacky on the sides, such a great tire. Sure wish the NC had a little more pep tho, about 25 more hp would be plenty.

    Also forgot to mention my mishap at the gas station. We stopped at an old gas station with pumps without pay-at-the-pump option. I went in and asked her to turn the pump on, she said it was already on, went back out, pumped gas, buddy on the Multistrada didn't need gas, so I felt hurried, pumped my gas, closed it up, hopped on, and tore out. About 5 miles down the road I remembered not paying for it! And there was a Sheriff that had just pulled in the parking lot there before I left. So I turned around and sped back quickly, went in to pay, the Sheriff was over to the side eating, cashier yelled over to him "he came back to pay for the gas!" She said that'll be $6.66. I was like dang, should have pumped another penny! Crazy lol.
