I rode down to springfield/nixa on wednesday....never never again will i do that. Sore ass, knees and hips on fire. Bugs striking my helmet like I was shot by a 50cal barrett, yeah one was pretty nasty looking. It was a fast fun ride but damn it hurt. Then on saturday I rode from Nixa to Branson West to ummmmm west BFE Mano, which is the far west end of table rock lake. Extremely nice roads to ride curvy as all getout and no potholes! Then came today, I had to be at work at 1445hours, so I leave at 930 took an hour to get to 44 on hwy 39, nice curvy road fun times but yeah the 3 1/2 hour ride on 44 back to STL sucked. Sore ass once again that still aches and the sea like sickness oh fun times! My average speed to get back was pretty damn fast and way way illegal. Got in with only minutes to spare to sheet shower and shave. I guess the moral of my story is next time I will take nice long breaks.
