My friends used to live in Joplin. They left after the giant tornado last year. She was a nurse at the hospital that didn't get crushed.

In the end, all you really have is body and mind.

Ahh I see. Yeah man my parents and I and a few other family members of ours went up there to help out after it hit. I wanna say it was on Wednesday that we went, think it hit on Sunday..? Could be wrong. Pretty crazy to see in person and definitely puts things into perspective for you. In the place where we were sent we could see the hospital that got destroyed. It was only about a quarter mile away so it was sad to look up and see that thing all day. You can see all of that stuff on tv and what not but it didnt really sink in until I saw it in person and was picking up the remains of what used to be someones home.

That thing was brutal at a minimum. Pure devastation.

Mother Nature figured it out that day.

Definitely not just a Kawi thing at all. Every bike under the sun shows up.. theres even an RC8 out here. We usually sit around and talk for a bit and then go out for a cruise. The normal lap is about 30 miles or so.
