    This is the first time I have seen how to learn braille in a park. I believe this in in Tyrone, Pa. 20210822_100430[1].jpg

    I have been motoring around locally and haven't taken many pictures. And I havr been really slacking with only 4200 miles this month. I really need to get on the stick and get some riding done.

    In the next couple of weeks my plan is to hit Va then Az.

    Keep tuned.

    I agree that pants are overrated. I’m increasingly riding around the city in shorts. Much of it is at bicycle speed anyway. Aside from highway ventures, I don’t wear pants until after the World Series. This last year I made it until January 23 before weather forced me to trousers.

    I like the Kawasaki. I had a new GPz1100 and ZR1100.

    I wear riding pants with shorts under them. So I guess the title is a bit misleading.

    Big day today. I went into capital city for some official paperwork. After that was done I met up with a fellow rider and we left Harrisburg behind and took a circuitous route to Thurmont, Md for lunch at Bollingers. The food was good along with the ride there.

    I only managed one photo.

    After lunch we skirted the Md/Pa state line and finally ended up on 851 headed east. Following this until 425 then jumped on 30 and headed home. About 375 miles today. The cheapest gas we foumd was 291.

    Went to buffied house today to watch the F1 race. Once I arrived the skies opened up. It wasn't supposed to rain until 7pm. That is the last time ai listen to the weather guess. Anyway by the tume the race was over so was the rain. Stopped at the beer store then went to get a sub for lunch/dinner/breakfast. When I walked out to the profit center my boot had a total blowout.

    Luckily I have some shoe goo to fix it. Shoe goo worked pretty good on the right boot.

    Anyway I am waiting on a new rear tire to swap out and then with a new chain I will be ready to head to Az.

    Tuesday past I met up with the retread group. They are retired folks who ride. After breakfast we headed west and rode around Michaux State Forest and wound up in York Springs for lunch.

    After lunch I went my own eay to get the global multi tag picutes of 5 different bridges. I was an over achiever and took pictures of 6 bridges.

    Today I saw a bald eagle and I saw (the same one) the other day. It reminded me of the bald eagle I saw leaving 4 winds rally. The skys were low and as I came around a corner I spotted a stopped car then I noticed something flying and a dead carcus on my side of the road. The stopped car was watching the bald eagle feasting on the dead deer and I went and interupted meal time.

    Today was maintenance day. An oil change, replaced the chain and sprockets (I should have done it a few thousand miles ago), and replaced the oil and filter and the rear tire. The one I had replaced in NC wouldn't make it and back from my planned trip.

    My new tire changing tool (machine) didn't work as well as the other 2 changers I have used. Somebody was swearing alot during the tire change. I almost took off without tightening the drain plug. Luckily I saw the spot if oil before taking off for home.

    No pictures today.

    Today was all about the Nostalgic Run in Thurmont, Md

    20210912_102359.jpg

    This is held the Sunday after Labor Day. This year I forgot to add it the calendar but I will remember for next year. The turn out was a bit low but way better than last year.

    Yamaha's futuristic bike.

    There was a trip sheet and I grabbed one. I followed it for the first 3 turns then missed a turn and the trip was on. I wandered around the Thurmont, Md area and popped into Pa and had lunch in Frederick, Md.

    I found a town clock in Emmitsburg, Md.

    There was a lot of traffic so I didn't get closer.
