Yesterday was a total bust… I put my gear on early in the morning to join some club riders in Tyler for breakfast, and pulled Katrina out of the garage. I flipped the switch on the GPS and noticed that the screen did not come on. I looked closer and saw the switch was now in the “0” position. That’s not good. Obviously I left the GPS power up a couple of weeks back when I went to the LSBMWR meeting. Dead battery now. Real dead. So, I put the charger on the battery and went upstairs to offload Mark’s route for the ride so I could join later. I pulled the netbook out from under my recliner to fire up Mapsource, and found that I had earler effectively crushed the screen with the recliner hardware. Not a good Saturday at all… Took care of all of the middle-age senility casualties through the rest of the day, and was still ready for some kind of moto event for the weekend.
Rick Fairless’ Strokers was hosting a bike show Sunday afternoon, so that’s the ticket. I wound up running into a lot of the club boys at the event. We enjoyed the mix of eclectic crowd and eclectic bikes.
