    Gonna take off for a bit and ride over to Tracy to take in the old tractor show. Twenty miles each way, couple gearshifts on the '84 BMW "airhead" motorcycle to get to the highway, 4 upshifts, a downship and an upshift for the 40 MPH limit through Balaton, up and down through the gears for the 4 way stop at US 59, then 4 downshifts and pull into the parking lot at the museum in Tracy.

    22 gearshifts in 20 miles, shouldn't be too stressful... Thanks for all the great comments, be back about suppertime 'cause there's a storm commin' in.
