Heh, yeah, except rather than medieval windmills we have drilling rigs and pump jacks dotting the prairies.

I wouldn't say they make a big difference, but they do something. There were some dead bugs on them when I got home so they blocked something. So far as I can tell they don't create any extra turbulence but I am also 6'5" so I would probably be well above it and wouldn't notice.

almost 2000 miles on her so far.

Behind the locked gate the large brick sign reads:

Yamaha Motor Corporation U.S.A.

which is located very remotely in northern Wisconsin.

In other words I'm almost home.




A nice spot for a lunch break.

Camping/riding trip labor day weekend

Roaming through Cades Cove headed to Parsons Branch Rd.



Ten minutes later the bottom fell out with buckets of rain. Ran into 3 lost Sportbike riders on parsons branch. Gps got them there one was about to run out of gas. They asked me if the road came out at 129 I said yep and there is gas at the dragon store. They followed me through. Gotta hand it to them I wouldn't take my sport bike down parsons branch rd. Ha

How in the world did you ever find Cades Cove that empty on a holiday weekend? The only time we've seen it like that is when we rode bicycles through there early one Saturday morning before they allowed cars in.
