            ah the cbr..Twas a gorgeous day, no clouds in the sky, birds are chirping, and the cagers were far and few between, i thought i would visit a good friend of mine and went over to his house and to find they are having a little bbq, his driveway was full so i just parked beside the road, because i would only be there a minute right? Well just as i was b/s'ing with my buddy i heard this horrible crash, i thought someone had a wreck. Low and behold, someone hit my bike, and of all things to hit my bike, a Big truck, like tractor trailer type rig. Well after the initial impact it went under his bumper, under the front right wheel, under the 2nd and 3rd set of wheels and was under the trailor. He said he was going to fast and wasnt paying attention to the road, So i did not bitch at him for fessing up to it but dammit did i feel real bad about it i had only had that cbr for 3 months. Thank god i got full coverage on it though.

                            OK..I am did you meet Batgirl AND Jackal....and how come you didn't meet me and Junior?

                            If you met Jackal in Kentucky...then it would have been Babs you met.

                            Either you can tell, we are a great group to be associated with, looking forward to possibly meeting you at the Gap Rally
