    As a LEO, I carried an off duty, concealed weapon for 18 years and, luckily, never had to pull
    it out of it's holster. One of the things that is drilled into your head during in-service
    training is si...

    Had a nice 51 mile end of month ride with Frankie D this morning. Afternoon rains have kept the
    temps down in the morning and made it bearable. Looking at the calendar to decide if I'm going

    The afternoon rains have brought the temps down some but still very hot and humid for this

    That's absolutely crazy. :eek: I don't know why anyone riding on a MUP would ever feel the need
