    I think the bike brothers must have retired from tagging.

    Next between two nice curves. Locals call it a Square. On a SR with the same first and last digits.

    I posted it over in Oak Hill, I didn't have reception in downtown Cadmus. I probably rode for 40 minutes or so before stopping and posting. :rofl

    It is a beautiful day for a ride on a new bike anyway.
    The new one is only an hour and a half or so from there.:D

    Btw, that Adventure is a good looking bike.

    Tag was on SR676 West of Marietta.

    I assume it is known as a square due to the road right at the tag....

    I think that a guy named Palmer owned the farm inside the "square" made by the CR and the SR676. It's called Palmer's Square. Used to be a few Amish around there as well.
    It's pretty scary that half of this board has WRRs, V Stroms, and/or Garmin eTrex 20s. :lol3

    Next up just a short distance from the last tag for you beer lovers. Cool brewery and nice people. Pull on the door if they are open they'll most likely give you a tour and samples.

    I am riding with my personal mechanic.

    Re: Strom, I freaking love it.

    It takes all the stuff that was great about Strom v.1 and adds to it. Lighter, more nimble, better fuel economy, smoother, better instrumentation, better looks. It keeps the same shitty seat though, just to remind you of it's lineage.

    I am very glad I ate a bit of money and got rid of the Tenere.

    I accept your compliment but assure you I had nothing to do with the design of the machine! :lol3

    I have a set of HT cans that we run on Meredith's Strom; and I guess the smart thing would be to get a rack and just use them on this one, too.

    But... I'm sort of thinking about color matched white and black Givi PLX cases (sort of form fitting to the bike, not as obtrusive as the HT)... and actually I'm also considering doing not a goddamn thing and just strapping a duffel to the back on camping trips. I've become quite the minimalist, and often don't even carry a tent anymore.
