    rode to rhode island yesterday. Left at 7:30am, got to my destination at 11am. About 180 miles one way. Hung out a couple hours then headed home. Kinda rusty. Stops and starts weren't the smoothest. Could feel my over all awkwardness. Started off about 55 degrees and topped out in the 70's.

    Important is i got there and back in good shape. Damn lower-glove box almost wouldn't stay shut. Had to hold it closed for a few seconds before it would catch. As of yet thet do not make a locking door for it yet.


    Saw a funny hillarious thing. I rode the back roads down,,,,rt 12, rt 149, rt 2, I-190, I-290 to 146 etc....anyways going thru one of the small towns a auto grage repair business built a huge sign facing the road with 2 foot letter saying "DRUNK TONY IS A THIEF". I don't know who drunk tony is but i'm sure the locals do,lol.

    I recommend Mustang, for multiple reasons. Corbin can kiss their own a's
