Took a little ride up the coast today and got a little wet. But the ride home was beautiful. We had 17 bikes and 22 people.

it's ironic that the Floridian roads you were riding on will one day be at the bottom of the sea due to burning too much fossil fuels :|

Even more exciting to know is that the air you're breathing right now will stop filling your lungs due to old age and you'll be dead much much sooner.

Yet even more titillating to know Florida's coasts are covered with dead fish and toxic algae because its people and government are such fucking morons and can't comprehend how much they've permanently fucked their own environment :alert:

Well, I’m now a co-owner of a cannabis business. Medical marijuana was just legalized here, so the industry is new and booming. Business should be good...:up:

How so? I don’t foresee any problems. Our states have more power than the federal government (although the supremacy clause says otherwise). That’s why we’re able to override their laws. Feds typically stay out of states business...Dumbo...

It should prove to be an interesting business journey and getting in at the ground level, well there's only one way to go :up: .

I have a bit of experience in that matter as it's been a problem in Canada in the past. Aside from that, there's many stories going round about how anyone associated with the canabis industry in Canada, which is legal, will be barred entry to the US and there's also a bunch of articles on the FBI raiding medical dispensaries even though it's legal. Either way, good luck with your endeavor, I'm very much pro legalization and I still smoke... a lot. That said, if I was in the US, I'd probably be weary of having my name associated with anything weed related.

So you are in the medical branche, not the commercial "just to get high" branche?

Correct.

Until they legalize recreational, then we’ll supply both...

Getting ready to attempt a 3000 mile round trip ride at the end of this month (weather permitting). I needed more storage on the bike so I installed some locking, removable, hard leather saddle bags. I also changed out the turn signal to some LED low profile lights as the factory signals would be in the way of the bags.



I also picked up a nice hard leather sissy-bar bag (not in picture).

How many days are planning on taking? The only thing to really worry about is your ass getting sore but I suspect your harley probably has a bit more padding than my Z900, if not, I'd invest in some kind of padding for that long a trip. I did a little over 600 miles in a day and yeah... I was a little sore, wouldn't recommend more than 400 miles a day. On my bike anyway.

I've made the investment into a nice seat with backrest. It has fixed my issue with sore ass. So can ride 400 miles no problem. The longest single day ride this trip will be around 750 miles, from south east Florida to New Orleans.

Looking at pictures of the Z900, I'm not surprised your ass was sore. That's not much cushion.

Fractured my ring finger a month ago, missed 5 weeks of hockey thus far. On the plus side, going to Cuba on Friday :clownboat:

750 miles? Yeah... That's uh, ambitious. I'll just say this, I left my home at 5am, only stopped for food and restrooms and I got to NYC at around 8:30pm. Although, on my way back I left at 5am and got home at 6:30pm and that was approximately 650ish miles and I was going anywhere from 80mph to 140mph...

Maybe my route is more direct and less congested than the one you took.Google Maps calls it 752 miles and 10h 18m. I would like to do it in 12h, stopping for fuel and food. I'm not saying that I'll make it. But that's the plan.

Picked up this neat piece of tech. for my trip. I hope to use my GoPro quite a bit and needed a way to transfer files to a portable USB hard drive without a laptop. You can plug your Camera SD card in one side, your USB drive in the other and use an app on your cellphone to transfer the files. It also can be used as a wireless hot spot or router, for wireless media sharing on a network and a 6700mAh external charger for your cellphone or tablet. And for $32.99 I thought I'd give it a try.

That sounds a very handy piece of equipment :up:

Bought a new car. Finally got rid of that clunky '05 Renault Scenic. Got a Renault Megane Estate now.

Not my car but it's the same model/similar color.
