Hey, it is good to see a post from you. Glad your healing up well!!

I guess a twisty guy like myself should get out and do some West Texas riding every so often. I actually starting getting accustom to those 75 and 80 MPH speed limits!

Not sure what I will do back in Arkansas!

One of the most fun things to happen on this trip ... and I might add, it happened more than once ...

I would be tooling along enjoying the country side, speed around 75 to 80 and a little more if I wanted to keep Donnie in site. But then every so often we would hit one of those spots that I've began to recognize where the road opens up and you can see forever with plenty of open area on both sides of the road. And Donnie would just vanish!

Wanted to say, wait I wasn't ready! A man has to really be on his toes to keep up in that open country!

Hey Jamie ... great to hear from you and to also know that you've made great progress in your recovery. Never to late to work that road trip into a future one of yours if circumstances allow. We had a great time as I'm sure the journal reflected. If you're ever on the mainland again and have two wheels under you give us a shout out.

Take Care,

Donnie

If I didn't know any better I'd swear I'm rubbing off on you some. Good to know you're appreciating speed so much more .... You've told those speed stories on me so much I'm starting to believe them.
