    Took a nice ride, although short, around our area today and passed by this numerous times but never had the time to stop. Today was the day. It would have been badass to get dropped off at school on this bus.

    Pretty. Traveled that pass a couple years ago in late June and it was 35° and freezing rain. Looks pleasant there.

    Wednesday it was cold and wet, but the next day was better. Some shots from the day before. 20200722_155429.jpg 20200722_155235.jpg 20200722_161857.jpg

    I wanted to add to this picture.

    Pictures do not tell the whole story.
    See them skid marks in the rock?
    Clear back in what I thought was no mans land a John Deere sprayer was coming up this hill at me, I pulled off to the side for him to get past, This hill was so steep his 4x4 sprayer was spinning the tires coming up this.
    One of these.

    It just looks like flat ground.
    When guys say it was a lot rougher than the picture shows, It probably was.

    Totally understand. Pictures or video never do justice to how steep hills are.

    Silver linings. I bought the bike a few months ago out in western PA. The dealership didn't supply temp tags so it sat in the garage waiting with a trickle charger attached.

    Covid had the motor vehicle centers closed all the while. After waiting 5 hours to get the plate and registration I am out riding the Tenere.

    MOTORCYCLE

    Coming off a versys650 this was a great addition. Highway is a breeze on it. Backroad twisties are fun. Dirt is pretty awesome but I give respect to those that do aggressive riding on these big ladies.

    Three rides in and I have 700 miles on her. First oil change was done. Madstad screen installed and now the pile of goodies will go on. I wanted to do some rides to see how it is stock and to appreciate the mods.

    Stopped for fuel on the way to work after doing my first 'tag' in the regional forums. What a fun way to start the day and realized I hadnt done any "long" ride since covid. I enjoy sitting at the gas stops, drinking from my thermos and admiring the motorcycle in its "travel break" configuration. 20200806_083352.jpg
