    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.

    The Wee! I was planning to do some exploring and I didn't think the Wing would be the tool for turning around on rutted gravel roads. :muutt

    I have a tendency to find dead-ends. :D

    I did use it to come to work this morning; heated grips, seat and all. :deal

    Riding season is coming! Have you taken time off for Camp Cow Crap? :ear

    I take that as telling Kirk to eat a bowl of dicks.

    well, if you want to the truth, I was referring to myself....
    I can't take the kind of photos that Rick takes even
    when I am a passenger......

    That's because you're too nice to tell him to eat that bowl of dicks.
