Got out for a cold and wet ride this afternoon. Wanted to ride south to take in the Southern Shore but it just kept getting wetter and wetter so I double back and went for a ride out to Conception Harbour to check out the S.S. Charcot shipwreck. I've been out there before a few years ago and wanted to see if it had deteriorated any more. Its been there like this since the year I was born, 1968. Seems we are deteriorating at about the same rate  :008: :008: :003:

Lunch time run to take in some gravel roads close to work. Just as I got on the dirt road it started to pour  :023: but tapered off into a nice gentle rain after that. First time in this area and got lost once, only had my memory of looking at Google Maps to go by but I managed to get back to work.  :001: Sorry for the photos, only had phone with me. Most of the run was just a dirt road through some woods but then I broke out at the top of a hill looking down over some farms, beautiful there. I'll have to make a return trip next time its sunny out.

Bit of a cheat really, these pics were taken at the National Motorcycle Museum, many years ago, before the catastrophic fire that destroyed a lot of irreplaceable exhibits. Hope these are of interest to some.

Went for a little ride today.  Stopped on one of my favorite roads for a picture.
There is never enough time or money to do it right the first time.

Took my wife out for the first cruise today.

Bike was awesome. Handled well, no shortage of power allowing for uphill acceleration and good cruising speeds. Real comfy and the suspension was less sharp and more bouncy but stayed on line.

This pic is from Loves Lane, Mardan looking toward Foster and Wilson's Prom. My daily commute to work.

Looks like some beautiful riding country Heavy and Kembro.

I got out for a couple of hours this afternoon to check out two lighthouses. One of them wasn't accessible with my other bikes. It was pretty rough going (really rocky) on the X but it got me safely out and back  :001:

Took the bike out during my lunch hour and stopped by Lake Monroe.  Looks like a tropical storm is heading this way so I wanted to get in a nice ride before all the wind and rain hits in a few days.
