Easter weekend..it doesnt get much better than this or does it???<?xml:namespace prefix = "o" ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o><o> </o> Its been a while since Ive taken an adventure ride and since Easter weekend officially started on the appropriately named Good Friday it seems only reasonable to take advantage of a long weekend. Temperatures were predicted to be in the mid 60's to high 70s .it doesnt get much better than this .or does it????<o></o> Very loose plans were laid out for the long weekend, pretty much all I knew is the direction was to be East from Bowling Green, KY to Whitley KY, about 120 miles away. Bike of choice was my trusty BMW R80 G/S, soft bags loaded with camping gear and minimal clothing, two water bottles, basic tool kit, and 11 gallons of gas which should get me anywhere my heart desires. <o></o> Friday rolls around and departure time was a leisurely 10am, no hurry as my destination isnt all that far away. From Bowling Green I made tracks to Liberty KY in Casey County via Horse Cave, Pascal where 436 and 88 intersect then on to Greensburg and Campbellsville eventually to Liberty Ky. My plan was to explore Casey County in search of underdeveloped roads. In a roundabout way I made it to Liberty and explored some but found my hopes of finding plenty of good roads had been laid waste due to prosperity ..i.e pavement. I grabbed a quick lunch then headed out to Whitley KY, via a Somerset KY. Once reaching Somerset it was a straight shot to Whitley via US 27.<o></o> <o> </o> Since my plans were written on damp toilet paper the plan of camping promptly denigrated and a room was secured at the Park Land Motel just South of Whitley. In this way the road pigs load of camp gear could be left in the room while exploring the area .talked myself right into a room for two nights. Once unloaded food was in order, and since I was in a cervesa free zone a trip across the board was in order KY/TN boarder that is. Low and behold a Mexican restaurant what a better place to have a beer .So I sit down and order a cervesa be warned now it gets worse, tragedy #1. They no servo beero I could end the story here, but things do get worse ..I go ahead and order and finish my meal, then head off to Walmart to satisfy my lustful desire. <o></o> I pull into the parking lot of Walmart and while pulling off my helmet notice I am being eyed ever so inquisitively by a cute little blue eyed blonde girl of about 5 years of age. She was grinning from ear to ear. I smiled gave her a wave and couldnt help but notice in the drivers seat the very well-shaped genetic donor to this young child and having made no eye contact with her sexy mom I went ahead to find my 6 cold friends for the night. After leaving Walmart I walked back to the bike and the car was still there the young child was playing on her phone. I said oh, youre still here waiting for me, while I placed my 6 cold friends in the saddle bag. The girl then asked me a question which I didnt understand and at that point her sexy mom translated for me. I made quick small talk and proceeded to put on my helmet and go .tragic event #2 yes Im that slow dont worry as painful as this is the worst is yet to come and yes Im that slow .<o></o> I make it to the motel and speak with 3 of my friends and look over the maps to get a rough idea as to where the front wheel should take me tomorrow.
