My grandma put together a book from her mothers diary and photos called the ‘perpetual diary’. It has daily details of road trip to Colorado in 1930 when gas was 12 cents a gallon. These are one of a kind books, she only had 200 or so printed, so stop by www.chenterra.com and get one.

Horrible snap. But last wednesday Whit and I rode with a new group of riders. From wawa to hooters to the beach again. (The BP gas station on the strip) Live music was playing in neptune park. They were great. They sounded EXACTLY like the Eagles. The Eagles Tribute Band
Riding off-road motorcycles when i was younger has to be one of the largest repititious adrenaline rushes I have ever experienced in my life. I have recently rejuvinated that same spirit I had when I was younger by upgrading my Motorcycle. I sold my bike I have had for about a year now. (Suzuki GS500F Black bike shown below) The reason being is that it has the Sport bike look but actual Sportbikes have 80-180 Horsepower. This bike is good for traiing at 50 hp. So with roughly the same amount of money I sold my suzuki, I got the closest thing I could to a powerful japanese land missile. A British Triumph… Daytona 955i with about 120 hp it has breathed new life into me. With an off-road background I have to keep reminding myself how different street vs dirt really are. Not many second chances when you get past 50 mph.
So I won my new bike on Ebay and flew to Boston to pick it up and rode it down the coast back to Virginia. (Daytona 955i in grey below)

Anyways here is my new baby half way home at a wendys. Unfortuntely it was a cloudy day and pic taken with lil bitty phone camera. Fuel Injection makes a hell of a difference.
We also went parasailing at rudee inlet. (Cody, Alexis and myself) Yipee Now that was cool. The view was like of a plane, you could see the entire coastal city and how it vanished into regular land, and miles of beach. It is to bad Alexis had to remove her glasses, because she couldnt see but 10 inches in front of her. She still had fun though! It is craxy how smooth the ride was! I suggest it to anyone, even if you are afraid of heights, it feels 100% safe.
