Weekend report

Still unpacking and setting up the new house. The dining room table showed up on Thursday but there was a complete comedy of errors including the taller legs not fitting, a leaf getting dropped and splitting and one of the accessories being wrong. It's all getting sorted out, but for the moment we only kind of have a table.

Friday was the company holiday party, gordonmessmer graciously accompanied me and we had a pretty good time. I was only mildly hung over on Saturday so Gordon and I went to the International Motorcycle Show and wandered around. There was a totally sweet sidecar rig owned by Rich of Rich's custom upholstery:



I picked up a kind of dolly that you can park your bike on the center stand and move it around more easily. Gordon broke down and signed up for the sidecar class, and I put my name down too. I'll need the refresher because Sunday I scored this lovely little accessory for my bike:



It's in amazingly good shape for it's age. It's missing the seat lock (I have one) and a reflector. Everything else appears to be there and in good shape. I just need to pick up the attachment bits to bolt it up to the R50.
