Smile I met a living legend.

I went to the Springfield Mile and spent the weekend with Sportsterpaul. The guy is a legend. Had a wonderful time. Also met Bow Only, Crusty and some of the others. Don't believe everything you hear, these are some really nice guys to hang with.

I've got some pictures I'll post later. I said they were nice guys, but as the pics will show, they are lacking in the looks department.

Jim, my friend, you are the living legend. The trail of broken hearts you left in this townwill never be equaled!
Was a wonderful couple days that were too short, while all the rain cut down on some serious riding. However that “Stag” beer was quite good, surprised that you drink it! Looking forward to visiting Cuba.

About spending the weekend with Paul, what happens in Springfield should stay in Springfield...

Yeah seriously, probably shouldn't be told here. May be children present.

We stopped in the local Harley Stealership. We found a bike we could ride, didn't make a deal on it so we both left on our old bikes.
Here's Paul on his test ride.

Here's me on my ride.

What a fine looking crew.

That must be the new Electrical Harley. How was the test ride, was it anywhere near as quick as a Sporty?

Bow Only? A fellow archer?

I did a wheelie, but then I crashed. The other old guy, Paul, only got up to beginner speed.
Yes, Joe, (Bow Only) is an archery hunter.
