    Fuck didn't we do this like a decade ago and everyone hated the plate then? They just freshened it up a little for 2021 and re-released it. Ung. I like the current style with the subdued words in the background....

    So decided to take some of my old GPS tracks through WV during a trip this past weekend. I think the tracks were remnants from the Trans WV trail but I’m not sure where I got them. The route starts at East Liverpool and ends at Beckley. Really a fun route with a decent amount of off road with some muddy parts thrown in for fun.

    Oops, the plane is backwards. It is pushing the banner instead of pulling it. Or did they mean to do that?

    @tonusmaximus answered my call for a beat to shit old bike to use as yard art / driveway marker / what have you. He gave me this sweet 1974 Honda 360 which I promptly put at the end of my driveway. Plans are to burrow out the seat and use it as a planter, and chop the top of the tank off and plant flowers in that, too.

    Also ripped around on the KTM for the first time since its triumphant return from three months of dealer finger blasting. Goddamn that's a great bike. I just wish it was a good bike, if that makes sense. Riding it sure as shit makes me not want to sell it though. Damn. Randomly saw @mgorman on Beam Rd near Loudonville but didn't realize it was him until we passed. My neighbor and new bestie Ron tagged along on his 701. We swapped bikes briefly. I was happy to get back on the 890.

    Great Asphalt SPORT Ride Today. 350miles today. Most was WFO on some great back roads in the WNF area just north west of Marietta. Roads were wet in some areas with leaves but that just add to the Zone when you are in it. This was the best sport ride of 2021 for me. Chazz, Thank you for coming along and riding my wing as we enjoyed the curvy ridgeline roads of the area. We did break off the back roads for brief gas/piss stops in Bellaire on R7 down to Powhatan Point but then jumped back in the Forrest and climbed up to the ridge roads. Finished at Musky Bucket and split home. I may have some vid's later. 100_0795.JPG 100_0796.JPG 100_0797.JPG 100_0799.JPG

    Yeah... 3rd time now. I need to get a different skid plate.

    My helmet feels loose after getting rid of all my hair.
