When I set my mind to do something, I usually get it done. This was my last free weekend until mid May. Being a taxman does have a few drawbacks. The trip there was your basic winter drive on Friday afternoon, that degraded into a tough forced march by night time. I pushed past numerous wrecks, jack knifed semis in a nasty winter storm. Saturday the weather got worse, near white out conditions. In New York and Pennsylvania they were calling it a blizzard. Good news, not too many idiots left on the road (yeah, that included this idiot) - lots of vehicles abandoned on the sides of the road - and even thought the road was barely visible, the 4 wheel drive pulled the trailer through it all with not a complaint. It was kind of scary when I was either passed by a semi or when I did the passing. For about 5 seconds (although it seemed much longer) it was total whiteout, as the snow and wind kicked and threw the snow around the vehicles - no semi - no road - no vision at all - just crossed my fingers, said a prayer and kept the pedal to the metal and weel true! The bike was in great shape - low miles - well cared for - and now all mine. The seller is a terrific individual who needed the cash and not a second bike, so we were both at the right place at the right time and in the right frame of mind. Looks like I have a new friend to visit on my way to Maine this summer. Sunday's ride back was a cake walk. Made terrific time and got home by 3:30 pm. Took 7 hours to go almost 500 miles Sunday while it took over 12 hours to do similar milage on Saturday. I'll post a few pictures when I figure out how. Looks like the browse command is gone and I don't feel like posting to the web now. Will do soon. Anyone riding this weekend?
