    A compliment

    My garage accessís a dead end gravel road (Flower Trail) at the back of the property. Been peddling with the R90, had it out on the concrete slab. Earlier in the day I had rode it down to the end of the drive in front of Mr. Flowers home and back to the garage. I was messing with the bike, when Mr. Flower drive by the garage and stopped. Nice looking bike, Barry. I saw U ride up the Drive, Ur bike really sound good. I liked it. Thx, man. Good deal, the bike runs and sounds good. Now to get all those little niggly things fixed and repaired. My bike has a good sound.

    Just watched the the 2nd private flight into space. Pretty exciting stuff. Iím a week shy of 68 years, so Iíve pretty much lived thru the history of space flight.

    Exciting to watch but my question is who pays 30M for this opportunity then cancels because of a scheduling conflict? Surely there is more to that story. Inquiring minds want to know.

    Alan Shepard did this sub-orbital type flight in 1961. His booster rocket was however not reusable so there is some progress in the past 60 years.

    Watching that booster rocket come down and land in the proper position was kinda impressive, then the module came down with the parachutes. I thought it was traveling too fast; but at the end it was perfect. Compared to the launch'es of the 60's and 70's; this one seemed a little spare. It looked liked the rocket wasn't big and powerful enough to get the job done; but it did. U know the old story 'The little engine that could' and did. Congrats to both teams for being successful. The future of space flight by America looks to be back on a successful path.

    Heard them say when the sensors hit 6 feet off the ground it fires an air cushion underneath for a soft landing.

    Iíve been doing some work on the bike. Must have left this band laying on the bike. Glad to get it back. I think Iím starting to have mental issues, not taking care of my business. Gotta start doing better. ps This was a reenactment of the actual event.
