Taking some dabs. Then I'll smudge with a little sage. Then in going home to eat more tacos 5 miles from where I ditch you bras. Everyone has to entertain yourselves my speakers blown. Not my job anyway. I like my gears and the cars sounds just fine. Music is funny but not needed really. Rivers still barley warm enough to swim in. Robotaco is legendary spot. I moved day to bump it between twosday bi weekly ride to a monthly taco ride every first Wednesday of the month. Hope you like TACOS. I really love them allot. My first birthday with teeth was tacos. I'll explain on ride why. You'll love this story. Cause it brought me to this weird place. Better show up. Don't be a looser. If you don't show up I'll prove my bet and win 5k. At this ride there will be a raffle hat which you bring
