    Here you can always head to higher ground to get away but the valleys are definitely swampy.

    Would you mind sharing the make of that windscreen? I have not seen that design before...

    ^ ^ ^ Looks like a Parabellum Rally painted white on the bottom half, maybe...

    Yep, it’s a cut down parrabellum painted black on top and white on the bottom I think I’m going to repaint and move the black a little lower.

    48 degree's this mornin, goin to a high of 73 and partly cloudy. Should be pretty nice.


    Found a lone " Volunteer " all by itself out on a grassy two track yesterday. About 6 feet tall allready. Real sturdy. Should make a excellent Charlie Brown style Christmas tree once dried and plucked in about 2 months. :lol3

    Rain has made things muggy. Going to a high of 82 today. Too warm to be out past noon.

    At least the Black Eyed Susan's dont mind it.

    Hush! It was 82° and 90% humidity on my morning commute. Don't get me started on what the afternoon commute home will be!

    Rode to work on a very beautiful morning only to realize I forgot by backpack with my laptop in it at home. So 20 minutes later the DR is back in the garage.

    Another ride through the barrens. The harvest is beginning in some fields (sorry no pics of that).

    Thanks! :clap
    It is good to read that others find 82F to be too hot to ride in.
    I'm dying when it gets into the 80's. :knary

    When younger I could handle heat in the 90's no problem but not anymore... :pep
    Upper 70's and I'm out of energy and looking for shade. :(:

    Just saw this DR in my search for windscreens and love the look, nice work! Is this the Dakar windscreen? Also, what GSXR exhaust are you running?

    More time in the saddle today. Perfect weather in the mid to high 70s and riding solo meant I left without a flight plan and made a day of it.

    some blueberry harvesting equipment.

    I don’t know very much about blueberries but it looks to me like the winnower is built into this machine. All of these tractors had Nova Scotia plates and I’d read recently that the local big name in blueberries is now owned by a Canadian firm.

    I’d never seen a diamond plate tool/boom box before.

    Fields ready for harvest. Predictions are for a good crop this year.

    i was contemplating just how wet I’d get when all of a sudden this irrigation was turned off. Perfect timing.

    185 miles give or take, the vast majority of which were on ATV trails and dirt roads means no complaints from me.

    How did you get topo maps on your Garmin? Is that a feature of that newer model or is it a different set of maps? I'd love to have that on my 396.

    There are topo lines included with the XT. I’m not sure if *these* topo lines are a feature of the XT or the ATV map that I have installed. The gradations seem to vary depending on what display theme I’ve selected. This is the most detailed.

    B6D76F88-2A6D-4F73-9D2F-73686E9FB30E.jpeg Rode between Georgetown and San Antone this past weekend and used my Butler map to route my trip home, including through this dude’s (in the van) ranch. The road cut straight through a stream (lots of these in central Texas). He was very nice, but obviously a bit annoyed to have a public road going through his property. I gotta say I much prefer riding with occasional glances at a map on my tank bag over using gps.

    99 degrees here today (central CA) and only slightly cooler in the mountains. Made a trip out to Three Rivers this afternoon and made it to the end of both North and South Fork drives. Cool little campground at the end of south fork that I’ll probably camp/hike when it cools down a bit. Not much for motorcycle trails at either end (wilderness) but still a good ride.
