New Summer Direction

As you know I do a lot of reading because I have the time and I am curious to some extent. I've been reading a lot about motorcycles and scooters and I came to an article about The IRON BUTT RALLY/RACE curiosity got the better of me and I started reading. I could not believe the discomfort pain these riders went through
riding their vehicles 11,000 miles in 11 days.
 There are a lot of stories about it and here is one of them click here .
 I said no way could I make my pansy butt do that, there just isn't enough money and I like to sleep.

 Talking it over with some others and reading what the "ROUNDERS" click here  a year-round riding motorcycle club did, I said YEAH!!! That is for me.
