Great Time And A Midnight Ride

Hey Juker - We made it to Freeport without any mishap but I got to tell you that my knees will never be the same. I had forgotten what it was like to ride a V65 Magna for long distances and it was nearly impossible to stretch out in comfort. it was a blast to ride that old bike even though my knees were banging my elbows most of the way. The raw power that little bike generates is amazing and I wish Honda still made them.

The Blues festival was great but the heat was oppressive. All the bikers were hunched down under trees and bushs just trying to stay in the shade. The organizers had the foresight to set up a canopy with water misters and all the women and children were kept comfortable. I took a shot at the slow races but got eliminated because I'm not used to the Magna and we went swimming in the Gulf which was totally cool. We left at 10:00 p.m. on Monday night to avoid the traffic and to beat the heat and we got back to Horseshoe Bay  in the wee hours.

Welcome Home
I'm glad you made it back and the old Honda stayed together. The thing I like about the Magnas is that they track like a dream. I fell asleep on mine once and rolled about a mile before it drifted into the gravel on the side of the road and woke me up. Scared the crap out of me!
