Nice pic Greg. Supposedly it was given the title of the most unappealing of all town names.

"Well, the story is that at the time of the ferry boat, there was tavern on the Perry County side of the river that was a local hangout for folks to go down and drink alcohol and do other things frowned upon by the local communities. Some church ladies from nearby would say, 'If you can't find so-and-so, go down to the tavern. He'll be sucking on a bottle so much he's swollen up like a toad.'"

Thus Toad Suck.

Yes and as amusing as that was on the weekly NBC Mystery Movie it's not so much when it's weekly -- or better -- for my motorcycle!

That was the FIRST Harley dealer we stopped at on the way to NC.

The mechanic in Salt Lake City pooched the warranty engine repair on my shiny new Harley and was acting like the starter or the battery was bad.
After I met up with Greg in Tulsa we wound up stopping at almost every croakin' Harley dealership on the 40 East all the way to North Carolina for the rally and he was, uh, not happy.

I was beyond that.

I was ready to light the thing on fire and dance around it while singing pagan songs, then buying a reliable XJ/XS11 from someone -- anyone! on the way back east.

I think he's thinking it'll do it again and I honestly can't blame him one bit.

Thus Toad Suck.

Do it Ben. Great ride up if done early morning or other not busy time. Hardly anyone on the road when I went. They waved me through the brake check.

I also quite liked Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs. As well as everywhere else in Colorado!

Dean, just do it... Get a plane ticket to Colorado, Eagle Rider does the rest on getting a bike to ride.
