lol... I'm seriously wondering why I bother to vote for a President when the election is always over before they even start counting our votes - here in Missouri. Been that way ever since I could remember, the "electorial" system renders Missouri, and most of the Midwest, useless, as far as the Presidential race is concerned.

I’m pretty much staying off public political discussion right now because I’m easily agitated and could break into a rant that could probably piss off someone else. I ‘unfriended’ 6 on Facebook last night and probably had as many do the same to me.
I Rode the bike to work today to put me in my happy place. I need to take the long way home….whatever that is.

lol... No worries - political discussion is a lot like religious discussion.

Would like to ride more, but these 30° mornings are brutal.

Facebook in general is just stupid, people add you just because to have more people on their list. I got rid of mine a few weeks ago and my life hasnt changed.

As for politics, well I had a semi job offer come up yesterday for Romania which I may take, we will see, depends on the amount they offer me to move half way around the world haha.

Really the best part of the event is just riding the roads around there. There are some GREAT roads in the area and not a lot of law enforcement. I've never been to the Dragon, but some at the Rat Raid who had been to the Dragon claim the Ozarks are a better overall riding area.
Neanderthal knows the area inside and out because he seems to take every other day as a vacation day to ride down there.. The rest of us can find our way around there pretty well and know where the better places to ride are.

The Rat Raid has some group rides offered but after this past year, I would avoid those, unless you just want to go on one huge ride with a bunch of triumphs, then stop to wait on an ambulance for awhile. It didn't used to be that way but the event gets bigger and you start having occasional riders trying to follow Valentino Rossi and stuff happens.

You may want to ride with different people or groups different days. Also may want to buy a map or real GPS. A cell phone based GPS won't load up the maps in many locations there.

It's cool to hang out in the parking lot in the evenings and check out some of the other Triumphs there ( and a few other makes scattered throughout)
