@Bob.

You got a pic of your XS650?

I got a XS650 Hard Tail project in my future.

So that would make you 170 now. Wow, even older than Stairman!

Shoot. I'll be in Colorado next month. Visiting younger brother. I got a bro in law south of Birmingham Alabama.

I know El Paso like the back of my hand. Sorry I'll miss ya. You could have stopped in Pecos Texas and stayed for free at my place. Wife and dogs won't let you near if I am not there.

Takes all day from Dallas to get to Pecos. Then El Paso is another 200 plus miles away.

Get ready for some heat.

No such thing as Over-the Hill, once you hit fifty it just keeps getting steeper.

I don't go far, I don't go fast, I just go.
