Road nowhere in particular, missed call from one buddy who saw me ride by the Arby's where they met for a ride. Rode around and stopped at local MC gear store just to look at new stuff, talked to couple people about my bike and about to leave when I heard a nickname I don't generally hear. One of my old riding buddies just pulled in with new wife. Short background, I rode with him and former wife and another couple, sometimes other friends, but the 5 of us made several long trips and many day trips years ago. Anyway, his wife passed 4 years this Thanksgiving, and the other couple (even better friends, they both rode) he passed 2 months later. Thank kind of broke up the rides. He got remarried; she moved to ND. Hadn't seen him in couple years, so it was nice to talk for while.
Oh, back home, I stopped at W-M for couple items, and 3 people commented on the bike. It seems my bike is a novelty.
