(Perfect detailing... This flat black, no-frills bile was parked on the curb adjacent to the NYC Choppers shop on Mahhattan's West Side. "Awesome" doesn't quite do it justice. Razr snap by TS, September 6, 2006.)
Update, 9:35 pm... Still groggy. Earlier, I enjoyed a two-hour sweat slog at the gym, my first non-stage workout since embarking on the tour. Energies flag nonetheless. Mental fatigue, baby. I'm too wiped to maintain consciousness. Just as we hit our peak in Brooklyn (of all places), the rug was pulled out from under. Then, two solid days of zero-sleep driving, and the resultant return to somber realities. At least the 9/11 remembrance horseshit keeps the lids extra heavy. Anyhow, tour pics and diary entries should pop up on the morrow...
