    Kevin started a new trend a while back. I snapped this on the way up to BYOB. Two years of ownership, almost to the week.

    "When you come to a fork in the road, take it."

    Yogi Berra



    Do you ever wonder what your life would be like if you had gone the other way? I never gave much consideration to the directions I took in life, just mostly went along with the flow.

    Some forks were dirt,

    and some were paved,

    and they all led me to right here.

    I have found that some forks are plastic and some are metal. Both have gotten me here. :D

    So, when you come to a fork on the table, you take it?

    During my last stint of "Harley Riding" I didn't see many dirt roads, not because it bothered me in the least, but because many of the people I rode with weren't into it (they'd do it, but they didn't like it).

    I love to ride those quiet back roads, either with folks who don't mind just wandering around, or by myself. A few weeks ago I had the chance to get away for a Saturday and go poking around in the Virginia hills in Floyd, Carroll and Patrick counties. I had ridden these areas for years, but mostly the small paved roads. This time I tried to find every dirt road I could. :evil

    A great area to just wander and get lost.

    I found my way onto the BRP eventually and lunched on some tuna and crackers.
