Default Only a Biker....

Only a Biker would understand why the wife and I were thrilled to take a 200mile round trip on our bikes just to buy a $5 set of blindspot mirrors for her new XC

A little more to the story, the place we rode to was Iron Pony Motorsports. For those that do not know this place, it is a motorcycle SUPERSTORE. They have anything and everything under the sun for motorcycles. It is as big if not bigger than a Walmart Superstore.

We went to get those $5 blindspot mirrors and managed to get out of the store only spending $200 Got some new summer helmets

You get a "FREE" tshirt when you spend $150 or more. Sadly we have enough "FREE" tshirts over the years to open a booth at a Flea Market selling tshirts LOL

I am most assuredly NOT a biker. I am a motorcyclist or a rider and I do get it.

LD, do you know you have a Packard museum in downtown Dayton? Its in an old Packard dealership that's just like it was in the 20s. A great trip back in time.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."
2017 Spyder F3 Limited - keeps this old guy in the wind and riding with friends.

We do that too, there is a place over in Indianna that has a Killer steak Hoagie. We dream of it over the winter. About 4 hours to get the killer sandwhich lol

Yes we had a reason but we don't always need it. We often go on a "Get Lost" trip and have fun getting lost and then finding our way back LOL

She still wants some more saddle time on her new XC before we hit anything too technical lol

We came to the Dayton area in 1977 and minus my time in the AF I have been around this area. I did not know of this museum. We will have to check that out, I love anything mechanical, cars, bikes, big machines its all cool
