What is this overlay on the seat NX650?
Thanks dhart, I couln't have answered the question and not sure who's bike it is!
Not that it makes any diference as to the origins of the seat cover, but that NX650 belongs to a guy named John. He is Alan's friend and only rode with us that one day.
A few shots from my ride last Saturday.
Grabbed a couple tags on the ride. Here a derelict radio station.
And Strom Thurmond Dam
Core samples from when they built the spillway
Met a train on the way down
Mr Garmin sent me down some gravel
Some more shots at the dam
A little different color farther down the gravel
Couple on the fly shots of 'Belfast', a late 1700's plantation home.
@augiedog and I, plus on the way back from California, @JMforPres recently got back from our west coast trip. I will over a (long?) time put up pictures here that I took with the 'big' camera.
If you are interested, the trip link is in the first post of this thread.
First stop actually. Bad Creek Resevoir overlook, SC.
Look closely and you can see smoke on the first hill past the resevoir, just left of center.
Couple of shots from an overlook on the Cherohala Parkway. In TN.
I've always thought it would be interesting to spend a day at the Belfast plantation.
Some more shots from the first day's ride. Fall Creek Falls State Park, TN.
This is the Fall Creek Falls.
I believe this is Cane Creek Falls. Wobbly bridge over the creek.
As many times as I've motored past, I've never stopped. Not too sure the place is staffed.
View from the wobbly bridge
@augiedog putting on a good face
Cane Creek Falls
A small waterfall on the other side of the overlook
A sedate Cane Creek ambles off
One last look, Cane Creek Falls
A few shots from day 2 of the west coast ride. We ran a few miles of the Natchez Trace Parkway. Although a lot flatter than the Blue Ridge Parkway, it is built along the same lines; no commercial vehicles, limited access, kinda low speed limit w/o too many officers. If you do any travel that might utilize the Natchez Trace don't hesitate. It is a wonderful road.
That big, tall bridge keeps the Parkway traffic from having to deal with surface road traffic.
We stumbled onto this lovely historic recreation in Huntingdon, TN. It is the county seat of Carroll Co. TN, and has early settler and Civil War history.
I like places like this. There was some signage there to explain the area. I might have got it on the little camera, or maybe not.
Coming out of Joplin, MO, we got on a little used stretch of an old Rte 66 alignment.
This place is literally on the state line.
Looking back up the street.
Just across the border in KS. Kansas has the least bit of Rt 66, it just cuts the corner.
I have not seen the movie 'Cars', but I've read that this old wrecker was the inspiration for one of the 'characters'.
When I started buying my own gas it was a little cheaper than this!
Old Galena, KS railroad station.
Across the street from the station. Those of us around here are familiar with a 'Norma's Truck Stop.' Police kept trying to incarcerate Norma.
For years there was one of this type of locomotive sitting at the side of the road in Burnsville, NC. They were powered by 2 290hp Cummins diesels, one on either end.
