Move over Cliff's Notes....here comes Luke's Notes

anyway, the bike never died...just had no throttle...on the ride home, I was wondering if I could just have turned the idle way up and putted back to the truck via idle power alone. I may try riding around my neighborhood that way before I fix it properly.

I went to take a little ride on the strom and made it 7 miles before just a little cloudy turned to the rinse cycle. Oh well, I did get the tractor set up for winter plowing duties.

I had a nice weekend of riding, mostly down in AEP land .

I think it has to do with hunting season, and I don't know how long it will last, but many of the internal roads in AEP that are usually gated, the gates are open.

I don't know what AEP is up to down there, they have improved some traditionally bad roads, and went to some trouble and expense to build some parking lots and pads out in the middle of nowhere, I suppose it has to do with the drilling craze. I was out for 3 or 4 hours, back by 4:30 and got wet the last hour.

You guys are lucky, I wanted to go full off-road but my head and gut weren't up to it so I hit the road to see if I could clear out the cobwebs. I rode 200+ miles, nearly 7 hours and never saw any rain, just dust. Then this butthead pulled out in front of me






Found this unique gem...







And this one





A few familiar faces. I swear the 2nd from left has posted here before




School was out

And, only in Ohio, this school (hopefully abandoned) was making cash on the side, literally...





Yes, that's a Budweiser sign, probably added on outside the gymnasium

mgorman,

That "S" bridge is only 3 miles from my house, I was down riding in AEP land. The Skull Fork Bridge is where I took cannorrider's picture last weekend.

sion,

I was on my V-Strom, I have 2 more covered bridge pics for you from the weekend, one a working bridge in Morgan County, another "non-working" one in Noble County, I forgot to take a picture of a third in one of the AEP campgrounds, but I bet you have that one.

Since you all have surely been waiting on the edge of your seats... I regret to inform you that my picking up a dual sport has been postponed to next Sunday.

Not to say you'll repeat my experience, but I can tell you that Kimber's customer service is slow, and their gunsmith's default line is "keep running expensive ammo through it till it works". I find that intolerable for a defensive gun. It should work from day one, not after 3000 rounds....that means it was machined and assembled poorly.

I sold it, bought into the M&P line, and never looked back.
We've got two full size kimbers, and never had a hiccup out of either one. They are both stellar weapons.
However, Im of the opinion the 1911 platform is less reliable, the shorter the bbl length.
get an m+p or a gee-lock if you want reliability in a small package
just my $.02

first, I was not aware that there were any moto-accessible roads/trails in ReCreation Land. And second, I do not have the covered bridge there. When you post the other two, see if you can give me a good description or google maps location of that third one, if its not too much trouble.
