I went for one last ride on my motorcycle...to deliver it to its new owner. I sold my bike this afternoon.

Decreased the motor on the bike and kinda cleaned it up a bit. Went and worked out. Fixed my garage door and made a little shelf for my small charcoal grill. Been keeping busy.

Not for my bike, but I bought some stuff for my truck. I got a new set of Cooper tires, a ramp and cam lock tie-down straps. I'm going to use the straps in securing my dirt bike in the truck bed.

The last truck I did that with I bent the front of the box tightening
the bike down. Didn't notice that until months later.....

Well not today, actually on Friday two days ago..... picked up a used 2013 Kawasaki KLX250S to begin doing some off-pavement riding.

It's the other half of a pair with my wife's new 2018 Yamaha XT250 we purchased in September. Long-time forum members might remember I had a 2005 Vstrom 1000 for about 12 years.... we traded it in on the XT250.

(The humongous bulbous-looking gray thing behind the XT250 is our trusty old 2003 Triumph Trophy 1200! :) )

Mrs. Stark's been out practicing on the sand roads in the pine barrens nearby, so once again, I've got some catching up to do in riding skills..... :roll:

Aside from riding motorcycles today I purchased a telescope.
Good for you, glad somebody is riding. Not a lot of motorcycling going on here in New Jersey in January! :(

Not much going on here in Utah either, but I'm starting to get excited for the spring just the same.

Fired up Chimera and let him run in the garage for a few minutes today, mostly just to hear it. He's anxious to go.

And we're taking our oldest daughter to her very first eye exam today, pretty sure she needs glasses. Other than that, slow day. Gonna play some video games and have some booze later though!

Today I listened to a serial podcast called "Bag Man'. It's all about President Nixon's VP Agnew and his crimes and corruption, completely separate from the Watergate stuff that dominated that period of history. Fascinating material, I recommend it to anyone who enjoys American political history.

I’m a fan of comedy podcasts. Pretty raunchy but legion of skanks is one I particularly enjoy.

Got a bit of work done on my latest tattoo. Getting a Saint Barbara half sleeve. Patron saint of miners. And artillary men and anyone who works with explosives. One more sitting for colour and this one will be done.

Pete, the four most recent episodes of LoS are downloading in my podcatcher now. I'll check them out tomorrow.
Awesome ink, the link work looks great! Carrie and I just got new ink in December, mine is "The Giant's Drink" from the novel Ender's Game. No pics of it on IG though, sadly.
