Aaron,
Where are you seeing a wolf?

Here in Saratoga about two years ago during the winter a good friend of mine emailed me some pictures of what he said were wolves out in a field near him. They certainly appeared to be wolves, just like something you see in Yellowstone.
I have a friend in NYS Encon. A few years ago I asked him about the numerous mountain lion sighting we have every winter, and more every year. He told me that the state was trying to keep it quiet but that the mountains were coming back. Following the moose down from Canada. Encon's cover story for years had been that they were pets or private zoo escapes. After a few year you would have thought that half the people up here had lions for pets the way people kept seeing them.

It's almost common knowledge now that they are back in the Adrirondacks of NY.

If I see one...I'm calling Aaron to chase it. I'll give him a beer and a cigarette and he'll chase it around like a mad man.

JC,
Your get-off didn't look nearly as stupid as me falling on my face while running up to help you.
My freakin knee was killing me for two days, have no idea what I did to it but now it's good as new.

For a second I thought you were going to pull it off, you went through the pea gravel at about 45mph, then jumped the curb back on to the track, but lost the back end when you got back on the pavement.

JC,
Mary's bike lost a shifter part also, pedal was hanging just like mine except for different reasons.

Power to weight baby, at probably more than 100 lbs lighter than the average 350gp Honda, with me on it it's probably got about the same power to weight ratio as a 350.
And you might not believe it, ...but I can ride like a muther fucker. I've probably still only got 80 laps around loudon on a vintage bike. Gimme some time and I'll get it down righteous. I go faster on the way to the store to pick up bread than I do at the race track.

Going fast makes my hair stand on end, makes me giggle. I actually asked my doctor about it once. Told him I feel really good, kind of high, for an hour or so whenever I crack 130-140mph. He told me I probably had a physiological addiction to adrenaline. So I bitch slapped him, banged his nurse, stole some pain killers and rode home at a buck fifty.
That's right... I'm bad!

PS. I really did discuss it with my doctor. Ever see that bumper sticker from some Italian leathers company that says "Life Begins at 140mph" ...they ain't shitin.
