    Well it only took me two months to finish up the post trip maint. on the Strom, all the exhaust valves were at a tight minimum so I decided to get some shims and bring them all back to mid or beyond....along with regular stuff like filters and oil and coolant and a couple of o-rings. Tires, brakes, chain and sprockets should all be good until it's time for the long hauls again next summer..

    Just a little mid day ride down to Woods Ferry in the Sumter NF and back....but it looks like I missed peak leaf color down there this year, oh well here's a couple of bushes that had a bit in em.

    Not sure if I'll get back out again tomorrow or not.....it's forecast to be nice though and maybe the back roads around Lake Lure will be popping....but the main roads around there will be crowded and no fun to ride on....and I have stuff to do.... :lobby

    I ended up splitting the difference...so to speak and got some stuff done before and after a little two hour lunch break on the Sportster. :D

    The past couple of weeks didn't include any riding more than a lunch run on one of my days off and I must not have seen anything I haven't already taken at least ten pics of. :lol3

    Took a little longer lunch run today, about a 200 mile loop with a lunch stop at the Straightaway Cafe which was the half way point too.

    Not much color left....here's a splash from the Upstate and a shed that I've probably only taken 3 or 4 pics of. :D

    It's looking like Wintertime in Lake Lure already...

    [​IMG]






























    Pretty nice day for a December 1st ride....it did get cloudy and cooler north of the lake and all along the South Mtns on the return...but no precip and not too cold.

    The best part of the day......being greeted by puppies at the Straightaway Cafe!! :raabia
