We made it all of...

...70 miles today, before snagging a cabin at the Skyline's Lewis Mountain campground
and dancing with beers for the rest of the day:


That's JB2 (Victory Vegas, Indiana) and Gentleman Jim (Yamaha FJR-1300, Washington State)
doing their best to look excited about slogging along in second gear with the four-way's on.
These fellas are real road dogs, and great riding partners.

Adney Gap...

...on the Blue Ridge Parkway, near Roanoke, Virginia USA:


We had just waited out an incredible two-hour thunderstorm in Roanoke, which seemed to have sent everyone packing
as we had the Parkway almost entirely to ourselves for the next hundred or so miles.

Shhhhh.....

.......please don't rat me out, but this ain't on the Parkway:


This was taken late in an 800-mile day at the base of "The World's Tallest Thermometer" in Baker, California USA.
The colors in this photograph are accurate, although I punched-up the saturation a bit.
The thermometer is 134 feet (41 meters) tall, and displays a maximum temperature of 134 degrees F (57 C),
a tribute to the highest-ever recorded temperature in North America, set in nearby Death Valley in July 1913.

A couple years ago...

...I fell on the front deck during a rainstorm and tore up my right rotator cuff, and couldn't ride for four months.
Sucked HARD, it did.
When I could finally move the bike around in the g'runge (with my one-and-a-half arms),
it was a major moral victory to maneuver it up to the side door and at least hear it run:

That was a mighty long four months, and it's great to be back.
