Yeah, I wonder if they make a throttle tamer for it?
Rode from Coeur d’Alene, ID to remote Montana border thru the Idaho Panhandle NF. Successful afternoon/evening test ride for a longer trip. I love this place!
Stop posting those nice photos dude....
Sorted through parts I dug out of the parents house, quick post on FB group and 48 hours later on their way to Australia.
Summer school and coaching has me swamped, so hopefully ride in 2 weeks when it’s all done. May take the family to Blairsville and ride sprint enduro August 8th/9th before we *might* go back to school full time.
Fingers crossed before I go mad.
Rode to the Tunnel to no where and then up Clingmans Dome
This was yesterday...damn Florida sand....
Love those old sunken road beds with a full canopy of oaks!
Took the SO on a short (100 miles +/-) loop around the Everglades. Say what you want about this global shutdown but it sure is nice to not be surrounded by tourists on these rides.
On a special personal note, I saw my first Eastern Mud Snake in the wild! That may not seem exciting but as someone with an environmental science background and whose major was Herpetology (until I switched majors), seeing one of these rare and elusive reptiles in its natural habitat, was really freakin' awesome!! No pic though as they're extremely shy.
My brother and I had a two day weekend of riding while dodging a bit of rain, which we managed to do
Saturday we were joined by a mutual friend and went up to our usual foodie place in Sebring which was, again, very good and it proved to be the driest of the two days.
Yesterday it was just my brother and I and we went to Ocheechobee for brunch and got just a bit damp while skirting some serious rain and lightning. Taking it easy on the backroads proved to be a good move as we didn't need any rain gear, just some patience to wait things out. Hardly any traffic to speak of on both days!
@Ginger Beard I’ll see if I can find the pic of my anerythristic eastern mudsnake. I only have a print photo of it somewhere. That’ll give you an idea of how long ago it was.
also had a anery dusky pigmy for a very long time.
You've had some really unique specimens.
Here is one of the Pygmy. I’ll throw in one of the Cerastes cerastes, and a Bothriechis schlegelii For good measure.
I miss reptiles sometimes.
I remember you telling me that you had an eyelash viper! Really beautiful, all 3!
Thank you! I had a whole slew of eyelash vipers at one time. I always think I miss the arboreal stuff the most until I think about the times I had 10-12” horned vipers trying to kill me, or tailing huge gaboons, edb’s or O. hannah into and out of cages for maintenance. One reason I haven’t gotten back into it is because I’d want them all again
I can't relate. I only have 3 tortoises, 2 turtles , 3 lizards and counting
This takes up more time than a couple hundred reptiles, and 10,000 rodents did
People always seemed to want to take a pic with the big cobras. Usually by the time I got to the back yard with one in a pillow case I could hear a car door slam
@Ginger Beard , @Buzztail
Beautiful pictures and amazing snakes. I've mostly only seen the common Everglades racer and near home here in the city I find cool black racers also.
Been too long since I've seen anything else. The pictures are a nice reminder of the variety we have.
Oh and +1 on the less crowded roads. I half wonder if that isn't why Moto sales are up because it is infinitely nicer though still too busy here in suburbia.
Well not today, but Saturday...
Singletracking along the ridgeline around lake Pend Orielle near Bayview, ID.
