    None that I took, I will grab a couple and repost. Nice easy ride. Except for one small spot a Valk Tryk could have made the entire trip.

    Had to make the obligatory stop and visit our "Tasseled" friends (Cold Springs Tavern)

    Only 400 odd miles but enjoyable to get back out.

    You should have pity on us...

    Been awhile since I've checked in here in the ghetto, but I have some news that I like and may help me enter the ranks of the "un-right in the head club".

    Friday at 6:00 am I leave via BWI for Omaha to pic up my new to me R1150 GS Adventure, then ride it back to Maryland.

    I believe that it should be a "bracing" and at times "damp" ride..

    I'll try and take a few pics and maybe try and post 'em up.

    So, sound crazy or is it just another day to this crowd of mental cases?:lol3

    Oh, I've never ridden a GS before. Points or deductions??

    Growing up? I'd say, "Haven't we met", but compared to some of you I am the epitome of maturity, and that's kinda sad!!:lol3

    My oldest wants to ride, and the KLR wasn't fully up to the task.

    Congrats!! I looked at 'em, but eight gallons of gas called my name. And it was black and yellow, and I could afford it!!!

    See you at Laurel in April on it?

    Nice RR!

    Sweet looking places to ride Bob!!! Well worth every penny extra for gas.
    That diesel price hurts though!!! would cost me 32$ more to fill my truck out there.:huh
    Very generous offer too!!! Thanks you da man!

    Congrats on the new ride & you sound totally sane to me!

    hint - Consider dropping south to come through KC and Lexington, rather than Chicago and the lake-effect areas of I-80/90. You'll probably make up the 2 hour difference just in traffic and radar traps, plus stay warmer and dryer.
