I was born and raised to be in the Army and spent three years at Ft. Stewart, GA when the 24th ID was there in 86-89. Got out after that. Never could make a career due to my size. Long story,
Dad was an 0-6, Dad's Dad was an 0-6, Dad's Dad's Wife was an 0-6. Just was not to be in my case.
That is why I appreciate the sacrifice you guys make and are making in Iraq. The Euros and the some of the others will never understand. I have argued this point and the whole war on another forum. Never will be resolved.
Like you said, I am not political either, I support the sacrifice of the troops doing the job. I owe you beers!
Steve & Buz:
That was a great ride. Sorry I had to zip out early. I was low on fuel & I had to get home anyway. I tried to tell you that I had to scoot @ the stop sign before we turned left to cross 66. I didn't get a chance though. I had a blast riding with you. It was great except when I ran out of gas on the the way home on 66. Luckily I had just passed an exit. So, I just coasted down the onramp & crossed 29 to the Exxon. I was thinking I could get a little further but I guess I couldn't & it was good thing that it happened right then. It made it easy to get to a gas station to fill 'er up.
Great ride! Beautiful country, man I wish I had to ride that everyday. Great pics, thanks for posting the roads we road cuz I know I would never be able to find them again. Great to see you again, I gotta learn to lean like you do at least learn the roads. Man, that cromo tank rules.
Good to meet you man. Could never missed you and the yellow Monster in the mirrors, you were glowing back there.
If you would have went about 1/4 mile @66 there was gas. Great ride.
Let me know when the next ride is going to be, the more the merrier. Maybe out to that BBQ place, I can eat with the best of them, don't let the skinny body fool you.
I highly recomend a NESBA Intro Track day at Summit Point. You will learn the limitations of you and your bike. Then when you ride on the road you can ride at a faster pace and have confidence that you have enough left on the table to get you out of a bind when they occur. Except for the really oh **** kind of binds.
I had a great ride too. I am ready to do it again any time.
Let me know when you guys are available, I am pretty much open for anytime now adays.
