San Diego is the red part of CA. You know, the area that's clean and nice with low crime and great schools. The place where all the blue cities vacation.

As a fellow Evansville resident, it's good to see hometown boy Dennis out and about somewhere other than a classic car show, not that I don't attend my share of car shows. I didn't know Dennis was such an avid motorcyclist, so my appreciation of his shows just went up a notch.



I just wish you could have captured some pics of Dennis with the mustache curled up and blowing in the wind! Now that would be a culture shock for Scotland!

"I rode from California to Arizona a few months ago."



Take a ride to Texas - it's like a Whole Other Country!(TM)



Delete "like" from that sentence, and you got it. Padre Island is nice, though. If you go when there aren't any people around.

I've seen the light, now I drink Speyburn Highland Single Malt....



Off work now, headin' up to see my lassie, I love bagpipes. With my heritage painting myself blue and dancing naked around rocks is just a night out with the lads..



Far as lynchin'....I've got my 1918 SMLE mk 111 for distance, a beater Remington double barrel for close up and a repro Spatha for face to face. If they can get through all that and the dogs I guess I've got it comming LOL

Good story; thanks for the reminiscence...



I was over that way 40 - some years ago driving a different sort of Triumph (a four-wheeler, all I had and all Uncle Sam's pay check could allow).



Can anybody point me toward some maps of Scotland available via the net? Mine have disappeared over the years.



I don't remember Guinness being available then. Seems like there were "issues". I do remember that there were ample alternatives.

The only problem is that I'd have to ride through West Texas to get to any part of Texas that doesn't look like nuclear winter.



West Texas is god-awful barren and it goes on for days.

Sounds like eastern Colorado/western Kansas. Only, you have to put up with those stupid-ass sunflower signs.............





(or the vast wastelands of central Iowa/eastern Nebraska)

I wouldn't say this is a Scots pub my friend; then you'd know whose balls were busted ;-}



'British' is for a map; not for a people.
