Stolen Picture

I don't normally like to steal pics for the site, especially without proper credit, but I have no idea who took this. I just know that I really like it lots.

Hugs n Kegs

My birthday is coming up so I'm inviting everyone out to celebrate me. We're meeting for dinner at Mexican Village downtown on Saturday, November 6th at 8pm and we'll be heading all the way across the street to the Tav after that. Troy has thrown in his free keg at the Tav for the party so for those of you who are into that sort of thing there will be free beer until the keg is gone! Since I don't drink I will instead be offering free hugs to anyone who attends. So c'mon out, its gonna be a blast!

The Local Blend

This is my very favorite little coffee shop around. Great food, tons of locally made and grown stuff, friendly staff, live music, hot college girls wandering about, and caramel apple cider that will change your life. I'm serious folks, this cider is like a change your religion/sell your first born kinda thing. No joke.

Great little sanctuary since we gots no internets at home. Check out more about them at The Local Blend 

Troy in Tennessee

Troy just got back from riding in Tennessee, then Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, California, etc and shared some pics with me for here. Here's a bunch from Wheels Through Time, we were there a few years ago and Troy went back on this trip as well. There's a couple at the end from our last ride up north in September as well as a shot of one of his XS's that I really dig. Enjoy!
