I think it's just the pants/suspenders combined with poor lighting/phone pic.

Meef, thanks for the stickers YFF!

I got up this morning and hit the road at 6am to enjoy some cool country air and explore some southern Ohio backroads. Had a really relaxing, peaceful ride all the way to the river by gravel and little county highways...got very close to that "Zen" thing I hear the pompous motorcycle writers blather on about, just sort of going down roads without any care of direction or destination really just relaxing in my helmet.

Stopped for some good chow at a little country kitchen for lunch, then meandered home for a few hours.

Now, here's where my story is slightly interesting. Just north of the Dillon Dam wildlife area, on a hilly road whose name doesn't matter, I spied a car coming over the hills out in front of me...could see narrow lights, and something flapping around over the outline of the car. When it got closer I could see it was a convertible, more specifically a fiberglass dune-buggy circa the 70's.

It had flame paint job, in mint shape, but what made this dune buggy epic was the guy driving it in a Darth Vader costume; helmet, chest piece, and a flowing black cape flapping around in the breeze.

Now, if you pass something like this on your way to the DooDah Parade or in downtown San Francisco, that's not an event that blows your noodle, but in the middle of bumfuck country road, Ohio, for no good reason, Darth Vader piloting Speed Buggy makes you question your sanity.



This might be the event that makes me break down and buy a helmet-mounted cam capable of quick snapshots.

I could only dream to have a cool buggy. I have to wear my Vador outfit on the KLR.

While your there, the politicians are causing trouble again. Could you straighten things out?
