Grumpy;

Thanks for taking the time and effort to post the weekly pictures.  We enjoy looking at them every week.  You have some great morning sunrise photos.

Tell Lisa hello from all of us.  Sheís an internet sensation!

My 2007 RG has to lean to the right quite a bit to put the jiffy stand back in.  It seems worse than it was when it was new.  I still put the same amount of air in the shocks.  Maybe my legs are getting shorter!  When I was on vacation in Wisconsin a couple of weeks ago I pulled into the campground to park.  The soil is primarily sand and bumpy where I parked, so I moved the bike ahead 20 Ė 30 feet to a more level and firm spot.  I put the jiffy stand out and started to lean the bike to the left to rest on the jiffy stand.  I apparently didnít get the jiffy stand entirely out and it went back in as I leaned the bike to the left.  The net result was I managed to pull a muscle on the backside of my left leg from the knee to the top of the leg.  The muscle in the back of my leg was hurting pretty good at the time and I can still feel it today.  I hope it heals soon.  I notice it after riding about 50 miles. 

Itís too bad the Daytona Diner will be gone.  Itís a weekly landmark for us and it appears to have a good breakfast.  I guess Iíll never get to have breakfast there.

Thanks for the weekly pictures Grumpy. That kick stand is sort of a pain. When I have the shocks up to 45lbs, for riding double, I don't have any problems but solo I run 25lbs. Went to the gas station I always go to and started to lean it over on the right to put the kick stand down and my foot just kept sliding out.  :oops: Well you know the results........that's why they make crash bars.  :embarrassed:

The diner is attached to the dealership? I ate there once and don't remember it looking like that, did they do a remodel recently? Is that the same dealership that is next to the municipal building? What's going to happen to the land when the building is gone? Yeah I know, a lot of questions, but I was in that dealership while it was snowing and everyone was going crazy looking out the windows and calling home. No big deal for a guy from the snow belt.
Listen to the jingle the rumble and the roar.

Bart, I usually tell Lisa that every week.  Well, if you hurry down here you can have breakfast there.

Bigs, It seems to be happening more to me lately. 

Truck, yes, the diner is attached and next to the municipal building. Daytona Diner will close, but open somewhere else.  No remodel, it's been the same for quite a while.  As far as I know, the building will remain standing, but there was a two block area just to the north that was completely razed.  It's all level now.

harley883r, Thanks for the comments.

I do appreciate all the comments folks make and questions are no problem.

Thanks Grumpy  :up:

I hope Lisa and you keep in touch when the diner is gone. You're both important parts of my Sunday.

panjs, Lisa works at the The World Famous Iron Horse Saloon.  I'll still see her every week.

Thanks Grumpy, still thinking about a trip down this fall from Western NC to meet you and Lisa, is she still working Sundays and Thursdays?Thought about Octoberbike week, but the extra they want for rooms would pay for the gas! :cry: We could compare bypass scars! I'm sure you'd win! :smile:
Thanks once more for the great photos

Thanks for the pics.  It has been quite the scene with the flood waters'  Lots of homes gone, roads completely gone. Parts of towns loosing many homes' National Guard with big choppers rescuing folks.  It was good relief watching your pics for a bit.  Thanks  Wingie
