I was out this weekend, riding sofla's notoriously boring flat, straight highways.



The sunset was so gorgeous it looked like the forest was on fire.



I had a late dinner on the road but good lighting got me to where I needed to go.



My campsite:



with my trusty steed close by:



One of the places I visited.



Gotta love the views





You don't see white pelicans too often, especially inland.



Several years ago I took a picture of my Yamaha in front of this old building's remains and couldn't find it until I stumbled upon it today.



600 miles for the weekend. Kinda hate to pull out all my camping gear for just one night, maybe I'll keep it all packed up and go out again next weekend. Sounds like a plan!

Looks like a good ride Pepper ! I ran the Beemer up to Inverness to look at some property Saturday. Being a solo trip i didn't need any fancy cabin or hotel so i pitched a tent at Fort Cooper state park. primitive site with water and piles of firewood 5 bucks 628 miles

Dang that looks like fun. Found a broken bolt on my KLR footpeg so I didn't do any off road this weekend. Nice little ride Sunday to Cafe 27 on the Harley for a burger and beer. I'm surprised no one ever mentions that place. If you all are planning any get aways this coming weekend, let me know.

On a side note, I've been fixing up the house getting it painted and all. I'm looking for a company that does seamless gutters if anyone can recommend a local company, let me know.

I grew up in NorthDakota. All we had were white pelicans!

Just wanted to let you all know that as of tomorrow the Loop Road will be open to through traffic. In a few months another road project will be underway for the paved section from the Monroe County line west to the Loop Road Education Center. This project may require short term closures of the road. I will send out notices if and when this occurs.

Have a good day.

I rode by there last weekend, something was going on. They have a big display every year at the sf fair.

I love the old tractors. If I had a piece of land, I'd get me an old John Deere and ride it around all day.

Like on Greenacres

Who was at the Dunkin Doughnuts in West Delray last Saturday?
I saw a couple of Beemers there.
