We took the new machine out today and are very pleased with it. We went from 44 HP which was ample to 100 HP which is probably way more than we need but that's the only motor offered. The seats are very comfortable. We have been having lots of rain the past couple of days and it was sorely needed as they got next to nothing during the monsoon season. For that reason, just four of us went out riding today and we had a great day. We had one machine go past while we were having lunch and we saw four others at a distance so it was really nice not having other traffic. There was no dust either which the other three appreciated.
We went for lunch with Ken and Marie and Richard and Judy yesterday at Mt Athos, the upscale
Greek restaurant in Florence. We have played one game of Progressive Hand and Foot and the ladies beat Ken and I 24,600 to 12,000!
I think I have finally found a dependable supplier for my photo card stock in Red River Paper. The first box I bought has been great with the photos looking very good. They were out of stock when I went to re-order the other day but I was able to place my order yesterday. I had a follow up email from a representative of the company inquiring how my experience was with the product and that was quite positive.
