    I need to plan a bigger trip for more major change in scenery; autumn is hopefully going to be rich in colors.

    Yesterday was an odd day for me, both sad and glad at the same time. A friend of mine passed last spring, damn you cancer! Anyway, he was an occasional rider and very proud of his 2010 Harley Dyna. We used to live 2 doors down the street from him and his wife, and I helped them out occasionally with snow removal and the like. We moved a few miles away last fall. Anyway, I've been checking in on his widow occasionally and starting and even riding his bike around for a bit. Their son has been planning on coming to get the bike, just hasn't made it happen yet. So he is coming to get the bike this weekend, and I was asked to check it out one more time. So yesterday I went over to the old 'hood and visited for a while and took the Dyna out for a last ride. Certainly not my style of bike, but this is one fine specimen of a Dyna. Never seen rain, pristine condition, only 10,600 miles. My friend loved to tool around with leather, and made the saddle bags and some other stuff for it. After about 30-something miles and fill up of fresh fuel, I took the bike back and bid my farewells. Godspeed Leon, I miss you buddy!

    End note, I prolly looked like a real tool riding that Dyna in my full ADV gear, boots and helmet!

    I've ridden in Farragut State Park at least 50 times, and never knew this was there.

    Back to reality i.e. heat & humidty:becca. It was a really nice trip out west and I'm busy planning my next excursion. The last day in Colorado was really nice with a ride over Cottonwood Pass on fresh pavement.

    I loaded the bike back on the trailer in Colorado Springs and took two lane highways for the first two days with the last day on interstate highways as I wanted to pick up some cajun food at Joyce's Supermarket In St. Martinsville LA. The first night I stayed in Clinton OK where I took this photo early on the next morning.

    rsP1070072.jpg

    Between 8/22 and 9/11 I put 5,100 miles on the bike and 2,900 on the car. Other than interstate travel on the first and last day I traveled primarily on some very enjoyable two lane or four lane non-interstate highways. I'm including a link to a google album for those interested.

    ^^^ I like that trailer rig. Do you load and unload by yourself, or do you need an assistant?

    I've done it both ways but it's always nice to have somebody on standby to give a little nudge during loading. If loading solo I use a length of 2x12 to shallow up the approach angle. This is the first trip that I've removed the windshield and mirrors and that helps a lot once your on the trailer.

    I've always admired this grain storage building on Hwy 95 in southern Idaho, but never stopped. On a recent trip I had ridden a bit faster than my buddies so I stopped to wait for them. The building had a wing that went off to the left, but that collapsed last winter...

    Got out yesterday for a nice ride in some crappy weather. Ride thru some snow in the higher elevations. Went south of town to see a couple buddies that leave for Yuma in a few weeks for the winter! Then east out to Fernan to drop something off to a buddy, got stopped by a Forest Ranger on the road to the saddle. Apparently I was going 'a little' fast. Good dude behind the ranger badge! We yakked for a bit and he let me off with a warning. Awesome since I was doing a bunch more than a little over! The warmest temp I saw was 45, but most of the ride was in the mid 30's. Got home to snow trying to cover things up! I live in some gorgeous country, but I'd trade some scenery in for for milder winters. I know, I know, it's just getting started!

    Nice! I was betting on RT33 between WV and VA.

    PS: love the ziptie method of securing foglights! :D

    Ha! Yes, my little aux lights are not near rugged enough for the crash bar vibes. They’re stuck on with silicone adhesive and zip ties. Lights have never failed though. :D

    The B&W photo was just south of Flintstone, MD, on the bumpiest—but not broken—paved road I’ve ever ridden.

    Great ride and amazing panoramic views today from West Virgina's Spruce Knob mountain tops. Glorious autumn colors, my camera can't do it justice and I can't stop at every vista.. but hope these will do. Views from South slope side:

    The lake nearby. There are so many miles of cool forest / gravel roads to explore in this whole area.. I better check exhaust gaskets!
