IT'S BEEN SIX MONTHS..........
So it's not like I haven't wanted to update this place like I used to do, but I haven't had time for much of anything these days. I'm working 6-7 days a week, 10+ hrs a day. I don't even get to see my horses anymore, they're in the barn when I leave in the morning and the same when I get home at night. I made it to my Karate Banquet and Tournament back in June and got my year end award in Sparring only since I didn't do much competeing this past year. The tournament itself didn't go well for me as I screwed up my Kata and yes.....got DQ'd in my first round of sparring, this time for excessive contact and unsportsmanlike behavior, whatever that means. We lost the dojo where I trained at, but I do get to go workout if I can find time in the morning before work at a gym. I very seldom get to train with my sensei, hopefully we will be closing the shop on Sunday and Mondays soon. I get to ride to work everyday, but that's just a big tease, I've only put 10,000 miles on my bikes so far this year. Hammer turned 60,000 this month. I was able to ride to MN over Memorial day and I went to Sturgis and had the best ride out there I have had in years. Partly do to the fact that I was so needing to get away from work and the weather was good except for the hail storm in Sturgis. I got two dents in Hammer's front fender. I've been riding the Pan to work quite a bit, she's running good as ever. I have my one year in at the shop this Wednesday and I get 10 days paid vacation that I have to use before the end of the year, so I have a long Labor Day weekend planned and lot's of riding to do. I will try and stay current here. Thanks for your letter's of concern, but I'm fine, just don't feel much like sitting at a computer if I have two hours of free time when I get home before I have to go to bed. I posted some pics below, 4th of July, one from the banquet and one of me and Big Schwag and then some from Sturgis. Hope your all doing well, CG
