If we do move to DC, I'll have to decide about cars. The company car would go away, the DL doesn't have A/C. The future is very fuzzy. Which is as it should be.
Who is to blame for that? Might as well stick it all back in there while you're doing the heater valve and fan?

XR600 is just a little too big for me (I have kinda short legs) though I can ride one *mostly* comfortably. I do really like the way the XR650R goes, but it's more bike and maintenance than I need by far. . In WA you are allowed to plate a 2-stroke dirt bike with minimal fuss lulz. Apparently anything goes, you're most likely to kill yourself on a dirt bike without costing them/society at large a lot., they just want their money for registration fees When moving back to OR, I had to come down here and take the riding test and class and jump thru a lot of hoops to get my M back on my license.

Truth be told for off road for what I need to do an XR250R would be fine, but the XR400R can be ridden on road or gravel roads much more easily.

I had a K75 that I really liked for ultimate on-road nerd-age. I fit perfectly on it. Gets worse gas mileage than my honda insight. All BMW bikes seem to drink gas incredibly. True of the E30s too...how can such a small nimble little tin foil car get such horrific fuel economy in sport form? The 1-year-only '88 Super ETA 325ES was the best compromise they seemed to come up with there I guess.

BMW really should remake the E30 M3. They would make so much money! I know they have all of the parts available to make it's just them choosing not to which is too bad.

Very few Volvo's. Saw a rough 240 and the "IPDUSA" car.

Thoughts for the day:

Wish I'd brought the DL.

And.

No matter what you drive, somebody always has a cooler car.

I'm thinking the VW kids are ahead of the curve with exhaust set ups.

Made it home. The PNW "heat wave" made the MINI the right choice. Nice drive. Good to be home.

"Volvo's in the Hood" next weekend. Local event. Never been. Should be cooler.

Then, I think, it's a bit of a car show dry spell. Maybe a few small, non-Volvo specific, shows to round out the summer.

Well shoot. It must have been obscured by a crowd of gawkers around it when I went by.

Just de-bugged the MINI. Fun roads, fun car. Power comes in up high. Like to see what she could do sometime.

Great talking with everybody. Even the guy with the orange Lambo had a sense of humor.

Just need a few more Volvo's.
