I taught a class this weekend and had a lot of fun. It seems like every class I learn something new, and I suppose that's how it should be right? Unless there's a change in the schedule this will have been the last class I teach this season, which means a nice long break and I get to start sleeping in on weekends again. Carrie has one more class scheduled and then she'll be on winter hiatus too.
As part of that, I suppose I'll cancel the ads on our two bikes for sale. Those winter bargain shoppers always give me a headache, and for the Versys at least, I think I'm 70% of the way convinced to put some nobbies on it and make it my dual sport. We've been talking a little about maybe doing some off-road stuff, and the rest of the world rides the Versys in all kinds of thick. It's just here in the States we think of it as strictly a road bike. So we'll see how that goes. A lot of people missed out on a really good deal, LoL.
Obviously didn't get around to the fuse block this weekend, but I may have some downtime during the week I could start on it.
Yesterday after class, Carrie and I went to our local mineral hot springs park, a place called Crystal Hot Springs
in the town of Honeyville. It's about half an hour north of us, cheap admission and excellent pools. They have several different tubs and pools of varying sizes and temperatures, and it's one of our favorite places to spend time when the weather cools off. It's amazing to me to think what a luxury a hot spring must have been 200 years ago, when heating water was a arduous chore. Can you imagine coming across a hot spring in the wild when you literally hadn't had a hot bath in months? It must have been incredible.
We spent two hours soaking in the pools, much-needed after how the last few weeks have gone. Every time I go to any sort of waterpark facility, I always think the same thing, "Wow, like EVERYBODY has tattoos!" If you work for a company that still considers visible tattoos a violation of dress code, you should do something to try to change that culture. Literally more people have tattoos than don't these days. Or, at least, when examining the portion of the population that engages in public bathing. Maybe it's a thing.
So that was our weekend. This week should be relatively quiet, getting the tires on our econobox rotated tomorrow and that's about it for plans.
A quick favor to ask while I've got you here. The TMW YouTube channel has been hovering at 19,9xx subscribers all summer. We get a couple more every few days, but I'm getting tired of looking at 19.9K. So I thought I'd see if I could push a membership drive from my blog here. I'll make it really easy on you. Assuming this works, all you have to do to subscribe is click HERE
. That should be the direct link to subscribe to the channel, and all you'll have to do is log in to your YouTube account if you're not already singed in over there. EZPZ. As of twenty minutes ago we were at 19,959 subscribers, so it'll only take 41 people to get to 20k. Does this modest little blog here on the largest motorcycle website in North America have the horsepower to get 40 YT subscriptions? Show me what we've got.
Thank you!! That's all for now, I'll be seeing you next week. Now I'm gonna have a drink and watch some comedy on NetFlix.
My cup of coffee this morning.
