Damn it is cold

It is only 24 degrees outside and Matt sent me a text asking if I wanted to go for a ride. As I have no common sense, I agreed for a few reasons. First it is all about riding. Secondly, Matt just picked up his BMW and I a team player.  Lastly, it is all about […]

Little red pot

When I was married, we had a little red pan. I always said that if we ever split up, I got the pan in the divorce. We split up and the first thing she did was hide the pan. No more! I have a new little red pan so now she can bite it!!!

Powersports Dealer Expo

Well, Tim Shannon & I went to the dealer expo. I have been going since it was in Cincinnati. I have only one word to describe it – DEAD. It is was by far the most pathetic trade show I have ever been to. Back when it was in Cincy & Indy, it would take […]
