Greetings, Central Floridiots

Hope everyone survived Debby and dried out. It's already back to normal sand-fest conditions here.

The flowers and lawn got a drink from Mommy Nature; that's about all the excitement Debby brought here.

Good to see our old bikes happily riding together, even without us!

Some vistas from today, riding around aimlessly as is my usual plan.







The XT did a fine job carrying me through the groves and down the streets.



Of course, the ride would not have been complete without the obligatory stop for BBQ at Smokin Joe's in Bowling Green.



Today I changed from my usual and went for the pulled pork sammich. It was as spectacular as the ribs! Any place that thinks banana pudding is a side dish has gotta be good.

Jerry & Kim, your bikes are getting quite the workout lately.

I've got a whole off-road gear collection now which I like wearing more than my street gear. The pressure suit and offroad helmet with goggles are much cooler than my mesh street suit.
