A couple shots from today’s ride   Leave a comment


The skies looked a lot more threatening than they wound up being today. I’ve been working hard on longer rides this spring and even though the skies didn’t want to cooperate today, I knew I had to head out and get some saddle time.

Here are a couple shots from today’s rides:

Everything starts with food – here’s the Tiger resting while I ate half of my breakfast:

A couple hours later, taking a break in a park and eating the rest of breakfast:

There are all kinds of flowers out now:

Honeysuckle

Dogwood

I picked up a sandwich shortly after this stop and took it with me for a ride out into PA. I thought I might find another nice place to stop and eat it. After an hour or so  I took another break. I like to stop at this one pulloff – you can see it was pretty gloomy, but it only rained lightly a few times up to this point.

Another  pic looking to the right:

A little gloomy out today

I headed home to eat my lunch and took a break for a couple hours and then decided to finally button up the Bonneville from it’s new battery and take it out. The Bonneville hasn’t been out yet this season, so a fresh tank of gas was in order, along with a good long ride. I only stopped a couple times.

That’s it. Today’s rides started at about 10 this morning and ended at about 8:00pm with about 3 hours of breaks throughout the day. Good Stuff!!!
