I have to admit, I know I know I'm sure no one on this site would ever in a million years believe that I'd ride my clean bike on the street all day and stop at a Starbucks, but I did!! Here's how it played out, I had to go see some customers in the mountains today and figured what the hell, I might as well fire up the bike since it's pretty nice outside right? Turns out that it was a little chillier than I thought (as it can be this time of year at altitude) so I stopped by the Starbucks on I-70 in Dumont, CO on the way back and had a Hot Chocolate. Well, as I was pulling out with my head hung as low as possible without crashing there were 2 spotless GS 1200's all farked out with everything in the book pulling in. I just felt too damn clean and ashamed and thought to myself, I absolutely cannot and will not let myself or my new XLADV friends down. That being said, compounded by the fact that my snow and ice free days this year are unfortunately drawing near, I immediately raised my head up high, dumped the clutch, twisted the throttle to the stop, lifted the front tire off the ground and pointed that very sad 990 off-road to redeem myself! I didn't get much work done after that, but I did feel much better about myself and snuck one more great ride in this season!! My sincere apologies about the first half of my day!!
