    Got in 250 miles on Saturday. Rode from Jackson, Ms. down to Natchez then up a few miles to Lorman (home of Alcorn U) Ate lunch at the Country Store there. After lunch walked outside to find Matthew McConaughy looking at the Scout! We talked for a few about the bike and he headed inside to eat! One of the three riders with me has a Scout on order, and was on his Shadow. I switched with him for about 10 miles and he was in awe the rest of the day! Probably made matters worse with the "waiting game" Hit 550 miles and my shop is closed today. It's off to the shop tomorrow for it's first check up.

    Sorry to say, no riding so far this week. Damed thing called a job is in my way. I'm looking forward to the start of daylight savings days when I can get in some riding after work.

    Rode roughly 40kms to Wanganui from Marton to see my Mum but she wasn't home. Visited my cousin instead, then went to see a mate who shouted me lunch! Another 40kms back home, short straights and plenty of corners and that's the State Highway. Next time I might take the class 2 roads where the straights are even shorter and the corners dime a dozen.

    You know, I tend to do more things like that when on my bike. I'm saying things like visiting friends and family, and stoping to look at things and meet people along the road. When riding I don't hurry like when in a car to get where I'm going, it's like the trip is what's important not just how fast I can get there. I bet you know what I'm saying.

    We are in Summer at the moment with autumn or fall just around the corner. Had a pretty hot and dry spell in Dec and into the new year which worried a lot of the grain producers but they are coming out smiling again after some recent rain. It's my weekend at work, hence my ability to ride during the week. Marton has a maltings plant which turns barley into malt for all New Zealand's breweries. We supply a fair amount to overseas countries also, even, would you believe to China. We are part of the world wide Malteurop Malting Co. You have a couple of plants over there too.

    That is a sweet looking shield Jay. I'm thinking I wish I had seen this before I ordered the low from the dealer. Indian screens are $1000 here.:eek::mad::(
