Well the orientation was cancelled and I attended my first 13th rally and lived to tell. However and fortunately, I did not see the thong man. It was a good day, which started out a little cool up my way, but it was great riding weather and there was a good showing down in Dover.
My ST is behind my friend's V-Strom. We had to park about six blocks from the lake, but the walk down past the vendors and all the bikes was very interesting. Had a perch on a bun, bought a golf shirt and headed out by 2pm.
I had the camera attached and took some video riding to my parking spot. On the way out of town I forgot to attach the camera, partly due to a conversation I was having as I was preparing to leave, so it did not record navigating through the more crowded streets. I then just followed my instincts to navigate home which resulted in having to ride on a few kilometres of gravel. The exposure of the video when heading into the sun was a little bright and that may have been made worse by dust on the lens.
Uwe, is that pony tail real or did you get a hair extension?
Hey, I've got a few years to go before my backend looks that messy. I'll send you a photo - again - to prove it. But, that will be the last time I send you one; these frequent requests are becoming em-bare-ass-ing.
I mentioned that to Cherie and that when we were in Times Square the Naked Cowboy was raking in the tips in exchange for photo ops, I guess thong-man has too much Canadian politeness in him to hold out his hand.
