I work from home and gettin' that Geezer Glide up and down the stairs is a *****. The house smells like exhaust too.



I ride to the gym. Does that count?

No. Not unless you can bench more than KPaul, outrun him in the 40 and beat his MSF scores. If you do that, we can consider you a motorcyclist, and not one second sooner, bud.

I ride to work just about everyday. The whole 5 or 6 block commute kills me. I can't ride to the gym because I'm too exhausted when I'm done lifting I couldn't handle a motorcycle very good.

He said I can choose the sport so I'm leaving out the KPaul vault.



I'd kill to see him on a surfboard though.

I hear ya. I was riding home from the gym one day on my Ducati after the trainer punished my arms and legs. Cars were stopping in front of me and my quivering arms couldn't get a real strong pull on that front brake lever. I mashed the rear and came to a stop chattering the rear wheel all the way.

I always like to tease the secretary when I ride too, she has said more than once that she would do "anything" for a Harley. But I can't anymore, Friday was her last day and she's moving to Iowa of all places. Course that can't be much different than SD. At least we have the Black Hills here.

I thought everyday was ride to work day. I do my 75 mile round trip commute by motorcycle because as a trendy suburbanite I'm naturaly just a socially responsible kinda' guy. I installed a cup holder and cell phone jack on my Trophy so now I can sip a latte` and chat on the phone while I blaze down the carpool lanes. Did you miss that down pour this morning Kpaul?
