Two topics that I steadfastly avoid on the internet:  Religion & Politics. 

That said, I’m really glad that My God has a wicked sense of humor… 😀

Areligious Bible story...

God: (standing on a chair behind Noah, he rings a bell once) NOAH.   Noah: (Looks up) Is someone calling me? (Shrugs and goes back to his work)   God: (Ding) NOAH!!   Noah: Who is that?   God: It's the Lord, Noah.   Noah: Right ... Where are ya? What do ya want? I've been good.   God: I want you to build an ark.   Noah: Right ... What's an ark?   God: Get some wood and build it 300 cubits by 80 cubits by 40 cubits.   Noah: Right ... What's a cubit?   God: Well never mind. Don't worry about that right now. After you build the   ark, I want you to go out into the world and collect all the animals of the   world, two by two, male and female, and put them into the ark.   Noah: Right ... Who is this really? What's going on? How come you want me to   do all these weird things?   God: I'm going to destroy the world.   Noah: Right ... Am I on Candid Camera? How are you gonna do it?   God: I'm going to make it rain for a thousand days and drown them right out.   Noah: Right ... Listen, do this and you'll save water. Let it rain for forty   days and forty nights and wait for the sewers to back up.   God: Right...   Narrator: So Noah began to build the ark. Of course his neighbors were not   too happy about it. Can you imagine leaving for the office at 7 AM and   seeing an ark?   Neighbor: (enters whistling, with brief case) Hey! You over there.   Noah: What do you want?   Neighbor: What is this thing?   Noah: It's an ark.   Neighbor: Uh huh, well you want to get it out of my driveway? I've gotta get   to work. Hey listen, what's this thing for anyway?   Noah: I can't tell you, ha ha ha.   Neighbor: Can't you even give me a little hint?   Noah: You want a hint?   Neighbor: Yes, please.   Noah: Well, how long can you tread water? Ha ha ha   Neighbor: There's one in every neighborhood. (Shakes head and leaves)   Narrator: Well Noah finally got the ark built. Then he had the task of   gathering all the animals two by two.   Noah: Hey, anybody know how to tell the difference between a male and a   female mosquito? (Looking in a box) I told your rabbits before, only two!   (He puts box in boat) Whew, finally the last two animals are on board. Let's   get this thing closed up before God asks me to do something else. I'm six   hundred years old. I am getting too old for this sort of thing.   God: Noah!   Noah: I knew it. What do you want now?   God: You're going to have to take one of those hippos off and get another   one.   Noah: Why?   God: 'Cause you got two males. You need a female.   Noah: I'm too tired to bring anything else on board. You change one of them.   God: Come on, you know I don't work like that.  ...

The road less traveled… 

Within a mile of the main highway, there’s an entire network of these gorgeous little lane-and-a-half rural backroads.    It’s always worth taking the time to explore a little.

Agreed.  I like to get off the beaten path as you can discover little gems that would otherwise be hidden from view.

And it's away from the hustle and bustle of traffic.

Hi all,

Just joined. I recently bought a 2015 FJ-09. Found it in outstanding condition with only 2k miles on it. I immediately added another 800 miles to it the first weekend I owned it. I'm happy to be a part of the community and look forward to learning from you guys. Hopefully I can share some knowledge too. 

I've been riding since I was 19. I've owned Triumph's in the past. I currently have this FJ-09 and a 2012 Harley-Davidson Sportster XL1200C. I'm in the Chicago area and out riding whenever possible. 

Cheers!

Welcome aboard!

I'm also in the Chicago area and ride whenever possible, usually I head north into Wisconsin where the nearest half decent twisties are for 40+ years. 

There are are a few FJ / Tracer guys I've ridden with but none ride as often as I do.

PM me if you want to join me.  I'll may ride tomorrow (I'm semi-retired) or if not, this weekend. 

My also fastest red 15 is set up very similar to yours and then some.  I have a few other bikes including an 01 XL1200S which I'm restoring.

Overcast 57゚but I had to get out because it's gonna rain tonight and tomorrow

Only about 110 miles up here, spin around a bit for another 20 miles and head home

Even a short day ride is better than staying home!  👍

Welcome!  That’s quite a score… you’re going to really love that FJ.

Weather is warming up here so decided to do a ~420km round trip before some more prediced rain arrives.

Great run but knackered now.  Will sleep well tonight.  Even though the body aches a bit, the mind is so much better for it. 🙂

Glad you got out & about!

I know about being fatigued after a run.  May head out today to start the new year out right.  Kind of a tradition. 

Is that a cute not so little Horned Lizard?

I'm sure you have lots of more creepy reptiles and insects down there.

Here, not so much.

Rain in moderation is much better than fire.

We're in a bit of a drought here, and the temps have fallen below normal but the roses are still rocketing.
