Got a nice ride in this afternoon getting two scavenger hunts. Hunt number 1 from another forum was tallest building near you, which was the Bandera County Court House. Hunt 2 from a second forum was Sasquatch/Big Foot related, weird, but got it. Took over 120 miles, but got them both. Took the bike as it had been two weeks since I was on it, the trike has been getting the most use. Yes I remembered to counter steer, yes I remembered to but my feet down, yes I remembered to put kick stand down, yes I still made wide corners like I was on trike. Biggest issue I had was remembering where the turn signal switch was. I had a blast with the smaller bike. My deck building supervisor, a friend of mine, will be flying in the first week of September and needed to make sure bike was ready for him as we are planning several rides during his stay. Here's the Relive which I paused taking the Hunt 2 pictures and forgot to turn back on. Not sure why I paused it, I normally just let it run.

Got a nice ride in today. Needed to go into San Antonio to price some decking supplies. Wife wanted to go and grab some breakfast. We got our belly full and headed out. All was good until we hit rain on way home. Normally she hates riding in rain, but it cooled us down and actually felt good. Did find out that our deck is going to be more than I want to spend.

It is weird just how much wood has increased in price over just the last five years. Recently I was looking for prices on replacing some doors in my house and nearly had a heart attack at the price, compared to a few years ago. The deck once completed will be a good coffee spot in the mornings.

Yes the deck will be nice. It’s more for deer watching. We’re sitting where part of the deck will be watching them now.

Just a poor old retirement guy trying to be comfortable. We’ve only been here a little over 3 months and have gotten a lot done. Three month ago nothing was here.

Out here where I live I've had tires explode from just sitting in the sun. It's crazy man, you'll be sitting there watching tv and all the sudden you'll hear a boom. You really need something to shelter your vehicles the sun can be brutal. Looking good man.

The day you got caught in the rain I hit a road barricade on route 66, it was washed out. Me thinking I could probably still get thru on my bike I blew the barricade and after a mile or two I ran into a new lake. Needed a boat to go any further.

With the one side of the cabin roof for solar panels and the flat carport to catch rain water, you could almost live off the grid out there. Nice view of the deer, over here in the city, monkeys by the dozen is all we see.

Road up to my son's house yesterday for one of my granddaughters birthday. Weather was good and a nice ride. I did crack the throttle to see what top end was on the Freewheeler. Might be a little more still there, but fast enough for me. I actually didn't think it would go that fast. I was running 2 GPS apps and mph was same on both.

Here's the Relive video.


When I got there they were taking some senior pictures. Photography thought my bike would make a good prop.

Proud grandpa here, here's a few more with her FFA awards. I took these with my phone, can't wait to see the real ones.

Brilliant pictures Les. The three-wheeler makes the right kind of prop for sure. My nephew also bought the last of the V8 Mustang GT's last year as cannot imagine a Mustang without that V8 throb.

Made it home safe and sound a few hours ago. Best longer ride I've had in a while. Great temps, in the 80s, all back roads and not in a hurry. Here's a short video of ride.

Got a nice ride in this morning. Everything was great, but the migrating Monarch Butterflies made a mess of bike. Looked like someone threw up on bike.
