    Hey guys. :wave

    It was spectacular yesterday afternoon, wasn't it?

    I'm afraid we've got another bad spell on the way this week...

    We're about to pay for it. Single digits predicted again at least one day this week.

    I told myself if I didn't ride yesterday, it would be like looking a gift horse in the mouth, and bad karma would be visited upon me in the way of a riding season full of bad weather. Just a couple hour ride was enough to get me through this week of upcoming terrible weather. Great thread BTW.

    Don't let your wife see it! Where you been, Todd?

    I'll try to get some up this weekend. It's dark when I get home and dark when I leave for work these days.

    I think it's been a month since I got any kind of a ride in. Went out along the NC/VA line today; Rockingham, Stokes, Patrick and Henry counties. Sought the smaller roads I haven't been on before.

    I met this train but didn't have time to get the camera ready so I turned around and raced back to a crossing I had just passed to get this...

    The rider of this bike turned out to be the BIL of the guy I bought my V-Strom from. We chatted a little at the pumps. He says this is an unrestored 1968 model and he puts 12-15k miles a year on it. Nice.

    Hey, Jack. :wave

    I'm afraid there's another messy system headed this way, but I think I can sneak in a ride to work tomorrow.
