Fridays coffee is almost gone. Waiting on 4pm to head home, strap on the small duffel bag, and wait for the wife to come out from work to hop on the bike. Hope to have dry weather. Forecasters can't seem to tell the same story, so I've resorted to preparing for rain, and not giving a crap either way. Actually, that's how it should be. Will stop at one of my favorite chili-dog spots in Abbeville, SC. https://roadfood.com/restaurants/rough-house/, then on to the mountains.

I'm down with a cast on left left foot and leg. But I told wound care girls I want it cut off at the end the month so I can go riding again.

We plan to ride to the Upper Kettle River Shakedown, and spend a few hours. Of course, we'll grab a bite eat at the Little Mermaid Café along the way.

80% chance of rain in the mountains. Suns out. Tubes are inflated. We're getting wet so who cares?

Just dumped primary fluid in and will do a test start up shortly. We saw 97degrees here today, not ideal riding weather but I done much worse, anxious.

Floated for an hour and a half in the sun. Thirty minutes of lightning, thunder and pouring rain. It was awesome. Got three Mason jars to work on tonight on the porch.

Yep! Been out enjoying the fresh mornings and gorgeous big blue sky days. Perfect riding weather this weekend
