Title: Hey Region 6'ers Did you ride today? Show me!
Post by: OSJ on October 20, 2011, 04:46:51 pm
I love doing big trip reports, with lots of photo's..however sometimes I really like just riding around town or just for a few hrs.  I still stop allot and take some photo's,  I'm sure I'm not the only one that does this.  

I thought this would be a good thread for people that want to share their photo's of these types of rides.  You don't even have to do any txt, just photos if you want.  This isn't just for today...when you ride then you post!

I will start...took the KLR out today for a little wet ride in the morning...

Then did some work only to have the sun come out, so I went back out and did some tagging

We're riding tomorrow for the campout!   :D  

I honestly, truly LOVE writing ride reports...so much so that when I'm not posting them here (the epic, multi-day variety), I post them on my blog (linked below).  I enjoy sharing the "little adventures" or "ordinary rides" that yield great photographs and/or stories.    

I also enjoy reading other ride reports and viewing other folks' photos...the epic reports, yes...but also ones like the few photos you've posted here.  Just knowing that someone got out for a bit today on two-wheels...that's pretty cool!   :bigok:  

/end cheesy-dorky sentiment

We lost a great motorcyclist today :( RIP Marco!

In his honor we taught Lizzy, our youngest daughter how to ride
(http://i602.photobucket.com/albums/tt109/OSJ/photobucket-21793-1319406399187.jpg)

It didnt take long for Liz to get the hang of it, and was tearing up my back lawn
(http://i602.photobucket.com/albums/tt109/OSJ/photobucket-19664-1319406450495.jpg)

Then she asked to go for her first ride on the Ducati (she's been on the KLR a few times) So off we go....
(http://i602.photobucket.com/albums/tt109/OSJ/photobucket-18197-1319406486079.jpg)

We stopped for a tag along the way
(http://i602.photobucket.com/albums/tt109/OSJ/photobucket-26263-1319402725083.jpg)

She's hooked!

Took it over to MD to drop it.

Boy I love riding that little bike.  It brings me back to when I first started riding...I forgot that you don't need the latest and greatest bike, with CB's, Intercoms, Radar Detectors and cruise control to enjoy riding.

Nice old Honda there, OSJ!  I feel similarly riding my (wife's) Savage - keeps riding simple.   :thumbsup:

Hey Ricewind, how do you like that Savage?

Have been considering one of those for my wife... she needs the low seat to be able to flat foot, and those look like they'd be a great simple bike.

check out the older small Nighthawks too if you might prefer a standard bike style over something more cruisery like the Savage.
My GF has one, it's a blast to ride.

My wife bought this 1995 from a coworker's son for $1000 and it's been a great bike for her to learn on.  She is tall so didn't really need the low seat height, but it's helpful to build confidence.  It's a nice, simple bike for a new rider.  And even for me, I enjoy taking it out for Sunday rides of 1hr or so because it's relaxing.  It's also very lightweight, something like 380lbs, so it's very easy to manage.  Cornering clearance is respectable for a cruiser.  Top speed is not much more than 75mph, literally.  I think it's a good first bike or general run-around bike and would recommend it.

That said, the Savage is murder on my lower back.  I swear I can still feel Sunday's ride here on Thursday.  My fantasy would be to sell it and get something like Chef675's Speed Four.  That's a sweet Triumph.

What's that saying....when life hands you lemons..make lemonade?

Well I made some today!

Saturday we got 12 inches of snow...which isn't something that bothers me, usually.   However getting that much snow on October 30th????  Are you kidding me??
[

My mailbox did okay, but I was rather upset.  
(http://i602.photobucket.com/albums/tt109/OSJ/photobucket-13224-1320087001925.jpg)

See I'm in the fertilizer business, and business is really good.  However I usually need most of November to get all my work done.  And seeing  the late fall treatment is my most profitable one its really important that I do get it done.  Only once in the last 24 years did snow hurt me, and it was late November snow so it was partly my fault.

12 inches in October is gonna hurt, that is if it doesn't melt!

Mean while it looks like I got a few days to wait out the melting...whats a guy to do?


Ride!

My wife Debbie and I took our bikes out for a great hooky day ride. Because of the recent storm, we decided to go south toward the Cape. It was a beautiful day and the roads were perfectly clear - no snow!  :)

Our first stop was the BONE view at the Chickatawbut Overlook in the Blue Hills Reservation. A little hazy this morning, but still nice.


(http://inlinethumb44.webshots.com/49067/2257815690076979221S600x600Q85.jpg)



(http://inlinethumb15.webshots.com/12878/2705358410076979221S600x600Q85.jpg)


Then we headed of to Cohasset to ride a shore route from Route 228 in Cohasset to Route 6 in Buzzards Bay.    

(http://inlinethumb42.webshots.com/49961/2180702700076979221S600x600Q85.jpg)



 
This was a very pretty ride that followed the south shore through Cohasset, Scituate, Marshfield, Duxbury, and Plymouth before finally ending up at the Cape Cod Canal.

Since it is November, a picture of the Mayflower was in order:

My pillion and I had a lovely ride to Bennington, VT. The weather was gorgeous (albeit a bit chilly).

We saw a gaggle of Occupy Bennington. We gave them a  :thumbsup:

The wake we attended was well attended and sad.    :(

We had lunch at a place that specializes in British grub. I had fish and chips, and mushy peas.

No pics, alas. I need to get a decent camera and/or a cellphone with a good camera.

What a beautiful day to own a motorcycle!

My plan was to ride to Woburn MA. A nasty little piss hole of New England.

1.25 hours on the slab or 3 hours through some very nice scenery.

My trip took me up through Holden, West Boylston, Boylston, Berlin, Sudbury, Lincoln, Concord and Lexington before having to succumb to RT. 128 to my destination.

I have never been through some of this area, it is very nice and will be doing it again soon.

My travels took me past OSJ and Mrs. OSJ's place and hey! They were getting prepped to head West on the KLR.

I had made a vow to myself to leave my first meeting with Mrs. OSJ knowing what color her eyes were. (think of the burger porn thread)

(http://i855.photobucket.com/albums/ab119/john2cook1/STN/DSC03446.jpg)

They are a very pretty blue!

Not a whole lot of pics as there was not a whole lot of stopping today.

I did come across the spot where Paul Revere was captured,

(http://i855.photobucket.com/albums/ab119/john2cook1/STN/DSC03447.jpg)

I looked but he was no longer there. He must have had an escape.

Four Seasons Firearms (http://www.fourseasonsguns.com/) in Woburn was my reason for the direction chosen for this journey.

I am glad I didn't know they were closed on Monday  :baldy: or I hadn't have enjoyed this great day.

Since I was in the area, I stopped to visit my friend Jill who moved to Waltham (yucko) last year.

She has a funny hairdo.

(http://i855.photobucket.com/albums/ab119/john2cook1/STN/DSC03448.jpg)

On the way home I had to go back to Snappy Dogs (http://www.snappy-dogs.com/)

(http://i855.photobucket.com/albums/ab119/john2cook1/STN/DSC03450.jpg)

to have "The Great Dane" which is the monster of all hot dogs. I assure you the Diet Coke is not to cut calories, I like the taste of all the chemicals. :thumbsup:

(http://i855.photobucket.com/albums/ab119/john2cook1/STN/DSC03449.jpg)

A quick stop at Mrs. Black's place of employment for a quick squeeze, to the the Moto Dealership to pick up oil and filter and home to Pick up the G to go check out electric ukeleles in Sturbridge.

A tank and a half of fuel gone never to return.

Tonight I will ride to Worcester for a meeting.

How's that for a day?

I tell ya, we've had a week of absolutely glorious fall weather. It's 67 degrees up here today with the sun blazing.
If there ever was a week to take off on a fall Northeast bike tour, this is it.  :thumbsup:

I logged about 100 miles today, playing on some back roads and ending up at a favorite coffee shop.

What a beautiful day it was for November in upstate NY! Sunny and high 60s.

No photos, alas.

I got out for a 200mi. ride.
 Weather was perfect but the roads were slippery in spots from cinders & salt put down for the Oct. snow...
I found a few of my favorite signs.

Closed for the season.

Mostly single track roads, would have loved to be on a Tiger 800, but the C14 does a fine job considering it's weight.

Met member 919 and a buddy of mine for breakfast (https://www.sport-touring.net/forums/index.php/topic,68138.0.html) today.

(http://i855.photobucket.com/albums/ab119/john2cook1/STN/DSC03465.jpg)

They both ride 919s. They did all sorts of 919 chatting.

919,

Paul,

Paul needed to get his season pass at MT. Wachusett so after breakfast off we rode. Not very far away (50 mins or so) but very nice ride.
(http://i855.photobucket.com/albums/ab119/john2cook1/STN/DSC03468.jpg)

More 919 blah blah blah followed by a more spirited ride back to the Luxury Shed.

Thanks guys it was fun.

I rode 130 miles today all within a 30 miles radius from my house. I think I'll do more of this, I don't need to go 300 miles to have fun. Here are some pictures I took on RT44/55, Rt299 between Kerhonkson and New Paltz, NY

Ben,

I don't need to go 300 miles to have fun either, but I did yesterday.  I rode from Binghamton to Poughkeepsie and back.  On the way, I took the same pictures you did.  Here's a couple of them.  I was there a little before noon.  From the shadows in your pictures, I'd guess I didn't miss you by much.

On the way back at about 4:30, a little west of Minnewaska there was a brilliant rainbow.  All told, another beautiful ride.

We were there today too! I would have called but I had to work until noon or so, we headed down to RH and followed it down to the refuge, came back and stopped for coffee in RH, and came home. 100 miles or so but it was a nice day.

I rode today. My bike didn't like the stopped traffic in Boston and promptly died on I-93 south when I came out of the tunnel:dead battery from clutching it through the tunnel for 30 minutes with the cooling fan running non-stop. Had to push it to the top of the hill and roll down to the Mass Ave exit to bump start it. Oh, did I mention this was at rush-hour this afternoon?

And that guy on the left kinda looks like me!  Proof I rode today this year!

Up until a short while ago, I was going to have to pass on riding today, but a quick peek at a tag forum on another site showed the tag to be to close to pass up and now I will have to go out tomorrow and drop the tag.  :bigok:

what a day!

Did I ride?

 

 

of course...its ride every day in December month...only did about 80 miles today...started off in the Rain...than sun..then finished off in the rain

(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/140157489.jpg)

Went out looking for Sheep and a National Wildlife Refuge

Found some...

(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/140157495.jpg)

(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/140157499.jpg)

(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/140157498.jpg)

Then finally..but not good enough for the tag..must be live sheep!!!

(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/140157496.jpg)

Got a chuckle out of this sign in their window...

(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/140157497.jpg)

I did find my NWR as well...

(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/140157493.jpg)

Then took Mrs OSJ out to lunch at the Dogfather in Worcester were we got interrupted by this guy assaulting the old man driving the black Toyota..my adrenaline kicked in and I ran over to get in between them, much to Mrs OSJ's dismay...I couldnt sit and watch a old man get beat on..

(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/140157500.jpg)

Luckily he backed down some when I stepped in front  of the old man...Cops caught up with him after he got back in his truck and fled the scene..now I have to appear in court to testify..This guy had a look of rage in his eyes like Ive never seen..

After all that I came home and decorated Frank the mailman for the holiday season

It's not too bad: they're shaving my right shoulder socket a mm or 2 and checking out the tendons while they're poking around to see if any need to be stitched. Out of work for 9 days and in a sling for a month.

Fantastic weather for December  :bigok:


Not today. Flirting with that fine and unpredictable ice-snow-rain line. I'm watching the temps carefully to time my bug-out.

I'm gonna get burned one of these days. I always said if I got caught in the late afternoon snow, I'm pulling up a couple cardboard boxes and a wad of my riding gear for a pillow and finding a corner
to crash out.

It was raining quite steadily when I came in, raining like a bitch out now.  :crazy:

I'll try to remember to snag a picture when I get out of work tonight.  See how well the Droids camera is at night.

Edit to add pic.  Frost on the seat too!

Mr. Black.  I eat rear pads too.  I'm hard on brakes, I replace rears almost twice as often as the fronts...

Well if they aren't dragging try keeping your toes on the pegs

Post by: Mr.Black on December 09, 2011, 12:14:03 pm
I ride with the balls of my feet on the pegs. I defiantly use them. I'd say 30% rear 70 front.


Title: Re: Hey Region 6'ers Did you ride today? Show me!
Post by: Cablebandit on December 09, 2011, 12:24:43 pm
Unless you're riding around backwards you're doing it wrong.  Switch that ratio around and add a little more front bias as well.  Using the rear for 70% of your braking is going to get you hurt.

I was wondering why I seem to be eating back tires too.  Apparently I downshift too hard and my rear tire is skidding around.

Kinda like BMX days.  I'm trying to consciously fix that bad habit.

You see, they build theme bikes for tv.  They have one that looks just like a fruit stand, pretty neat if you ask me.

And there were 2 others in the back of the store, one looked like a fish counter and the other was kind of like a butcher, but not as good.

Definitely need to get some heated grips or glove liners soon if I'm going to keep this up though.

I was going to ride some yesterday, it was nice out, upper 40's and sunny, but decided to drink one of the Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA's my wife got me for Christmas instead.  Installed some Tech Spec grip panels last night (another xmas gift), looking forward to testing them out today. I'm a little past the recommended service interval so I'm not going too far, but I have it scheduled for tomorrow.

Took a nice Xmas Day ride from my home in Delaware through Kennett Square PA, then Coatesville, up to the French Creek State Park south of Birdsboro. Here's the new (to me) machine alongside Pine Swamp Road (345):

Just picked it up on Thursday at Cross Country BMW in NJ. It replaces my '04 VFR.
This thing is a beast! Yet so refined - I'm loving it.  :D

Watchout for those minivans,


Just FYI, some of us STNers have minivan, well actually not all that mini when it is a Honda Odyssey. Darn thing is something like 4500lbs, but for what it is it is damn fun to drive.  When you need to transport four people and a couple Greythounds, a compact of the bike just will not do.

My buddy and I got out for a while yesterday, about 180 miles for me. Rode up into Lancaster County, PA. We cut it short because a lot of the roads on our route were wet and covered with gravel and salt. Not very good conditions for the roads we had selected, but it was still good to get out for a few hours.

This is on Rt 324 near Pequea, PA, with a view of the Susquehanna River.

Thanks! I may have to visit it on some future ride.

I found it via Google Maps. I'm still trying to figure out how those trains got there (assuming they weren't trucked in, which is boring). I can see abandoned lines in the area, but none of them seem to go right to that location. Maybe there was a temporary spur. I may have to do more Googling to see if I can learn more.

No riding -- snow is on its way. Maybe this weekend.

I am trusting that the cold weather won't produce any snow today. I think it was 26 when I left for work. Should be a tad colder by the time I leave.

Gerbings heated gloves work so well that I didn't even have to plug them in and my fingers were warm  :inlove:


Which ones do you have? Even my Classics get a bit cold at 25° without plugging in.

Actually today is the first day I've caged it since April. This was a record riding season for me non-stop. I've never ridden right through New Years before. It was 17° this AM when I got up and lake effect snow showers predicted for today and tonight.

There were TONS of accidents and highway shutdowns last night. I'll cage it again tomorrow as it's supposed to be 9° tomorrow morning, but shooting back
up into the 40's Thursday-Friday........and supposedly above average temps next week too!!!

Ouch.

I've logged several thousand miles in sub-freezing weather, including a trip from DC to upstate NY. I'm also very careful about the sorts of days I choose, and the weather conditions besides for the temperature.

Today will not be one of those days.

Yeah, it was 11 degrees when I got up today. Dan asked me if I was going to take the car. I said No. He said "but it's cold! and icy!"  I rolled my eyes, knowing that it wasn't icy at all.

So then I bribed him and told him that I'd take the car if I could buy some attic insulation on the way home (he keeps putting these things off). So now I have the car... I think I'll pick up some birdseed and stop by the bank while I'm out  :cool:

Are you going to the NY Motorcycle Expo later this month?

Gerbings and other vendors have been there in the past. (In this economy, who knows.)




Don't expect any deals though. I was disappointed at the NY IMS vendor booth pricing 2 yrs ago.
"Show Specials" translates to full everyday retail.  :thumbsdown:

The Lee Parks booth especially was a joke. They had a nice stock of product, but their "Show Special" on their gloves was 5 bucks HIGHER than you can get the damn things
anywhere, anyday. I told the sales rep that, and he just kinda shrugged me off. And that was on the last day of the show, 2 hrs before closing. It's a good place to go look at product, try stuff on, but that's about it.

I was REALLY disappointed with the volume of the cheap, imported, fringe-skull-chaps-patches-doo rags crapola and related pirate regalia.  :thumbsdown:

Id' say the IMS will be a once every 3 or 4 year event for me.

I still get 10% off ANY purchase from the dealer where I bought the Bandit and pay no shipping.

The few bucks that I may save by going anywhere else would be minimal.

Sounds silly but I will be buying my heated gear from the dealer.

Oh yeah there is. MA. sucks donkey pud. I pay sales tax from anywhere that ships to a MA. address.

Get this;

In MA, if I buy a cell phone from my provider, I don't pay the tax on the amount of the sale (SALES tax), I pay tax on the amount the phone is worth before the discount from my provider. Wouldn't that be theoretical sales tax or something like that?

Yeah.

I stretched it today -- and went past the edge.  I should have parked it.   ;)

One of those freak commuting days -- no salt down, expected rain turned to snow and temps kept dropping.  I left a bit early around 4, and caught the teeth of it.  Including everyone else who was trying to beat the weather. . ..  :crazy

Apart from keeping it 90 degrees or it's going over, the most difficult part was impaired vision -- slush on the outside, fog on the inside.  Truly sucked.   :(

I took a bunch of photo's on yesterdays ride...but lost them all when i mistakenly deleted them when I got home!

So the only ones that survived was the ones I sent to FB while riding.  Which is a easy way to upload photo's BTW, not sure if I have any FB friends over here on ST.N but if you want to request me search for New England Sport Touring.  I use FB for just motorcycle friends, and I usually only post up motorcycle related stuff.

Anyway, back to my ride.  Took the KLR out with its custom luggage for the day..I needed to pick up a crock pot that I left at my sisters house.

(http://i602.photobucket.com/albums/tt109/OSJ/406517_232591913482457_100001949491955_541157_1011555411_n.jpg)

Zip ties and a milk crate...

It was cold, but not freezing, right around 35 degrees when I left, I was tagging (whats new?)  First one was the ADV MA tag in Sudbury
(http://i602.photobucket.com/albums/tt109/OSJ/photobucket-12101-1326213997752.jpg)

Then the next was the NER MA tag in Weston.
(http://i602.photobucket.com/albums/tt109/OSJ/photobucket-14216-1326215371309.jpg)
(http://i602.photobucket.com/albums/tt109/OSJ/photobucket-14656-1326215431301.jpg)

This is the famous "rail trail" in Weston that the locals voted down because they didn't want Waltham residents wondering around their back yards.  I noticed no signs saying "no motorized vechicles" just one Private property sign on the bridge you see me standing under.  But clearly there was a trail leading in both directions.  

while sitting posting my tag with my droid, an older gentleman on a mountain bike rides up to me.  And we start to chat about the trail. Seems Weston will be converting it to official rail trail soon.  But for now its just a RTW that that state owns but no one really polices it.  I ask him if there is a problem with dirt bikes or 4 wheelers using it.  He says, no one in Weston owns a dirt bike  :lol:  then tells me that he lives close to where we are sitting and usually watches it, and rides his bike on it every day. He saw me ride down to it so that's why he came down to talk with me.  I jokingly say that if the only posting is "private property" and its not his property than why would he care if I rode my KLR down it,  especially seeing he rides his bike down it every day, aren't you breaking the law as well?  He agreed but told me that the locals that live on it would call the cops on my but not on mountain bikes or joggers.  In the end I did not ride down the trail, I got back on the road and headed east.

I took a ton of photo's on and around Shermans Bridge, this is the only one that made it home..
(http://i602.photobucket.com/albums/tt109/OSJ/406321_232647716810210_100001949491955_541274_338689569_n.jpg)

I rode a buch of back roads towards Leominster, this is where my crock pot was, I happend to be riding by the Fire Fighters Academy in Stow and stopped to snap a shot of this cool mural right outside.

(http://i602.photobucket.com/albums/tt109/OSJ/photobucket-7860-1326227433587.jpg)

From here I worked my way thru Hudson and into Berlin.  My stomach was growling, I needed lunch!  And lucklily for me I was riding right by Lowe's Variety in the center of Berlin.  If your near this place stop in for lunch.  They make really good homemade food.  I love the grilled hotdogs and corn chowder.  They have a few tables out back that you can sit on to eat.   Its classic old school New England, tables scattered around a small store. A place you can get just about anything you need.

(http://i602.photobucket.com/albums/tt109/OSJ/397710_232671313474517_100001949491955_541330_433912792_n.jpg)

Lunch was the last photo I sent to FB for the day.  I had taken many more but there gone... Even the one with the KLR laying on its side!  

Yup, as luck would have it I made it to my sisters house to pick up my crock pot,  then I wanted to set the new ADV tag down some dirt fire roads in Lancaster.   I grew up on Fort Pond in that section of town.  And there are fire roads that go for ever around there.   I went down one that is a steep hill and at the bottom is a small stream.  Turns out the stream is pretty big right now, I wasn't sure if I could cross it, so when I tried to turn around I dropped the bike.  First time the KLR was on its side since Ive owned it.   It was just a simple drop, nothing damaged and I didn't even hit the ground.  But my trusty crock pot didn't survive  :(

My new Teiz Lombard suit came in today, so even though it was really cold, I just had to give it a test ride.

Suit is excellent, and I was cozy doing 70 mph in 28* F with 0 wind protection and no electrics.  This suit has definitely passed the test.

 It was a beautiful day today so I took off from work at noon and put a few miles on the new tires. I did a tour of the Chesapeake Bay on the Delmarva Pennisula. First pic is  from Tolchester MD., Second Pic is from Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge,The body of water you see in the backround is the mouth of the Chester River just north of the Bay Bridge. And the last pic is The Blackwater Wildlife Refuge East of Cambridge MD. I thought this was a great sunset pic!

but evidently pointing the cell phone and pushing the button was more than he could handle, and there were NO PICTURES on the cell.  :headscratch: :facepalm:

That said, my nerves got tested a bit on the Connie last night. Bailed out of work and ran home through a light snow squall,
by the time I was a couple miles from home there were tire tracks forming on the road and it was coming down pretty good.

I rode yesterday and today.  Hopefully going to finish out the work week.  S'poda snow tonight.  Weather.com says 9pm, I leave at 8pm.  Maybe I'll see a flake or 2 :)

No pictures as I have been too busy riding.  :D

I've put about 1200 miles on my 05 Sprint from 01-01-12 to today. Most of it has been commuting from southern NH to Mass. Little to no salt or sand on the roads.

As always, just watch out for the cagers driving their phone booths. >(

Ride safe.

On previous rides I was not the only non-cruiser/touring bike.

I also want to say this. I will give the HD crowd credit. When a charity run or something like this (Honoring a Fallen Hero) comes up they show up in force.  I do not refer to them as Pirates when they are doing the

There is not one ounce of "why are you not riding a HD" at these escort rides. In fact, more than a couple I spoke to asked if the Bandit was as fun as it looked.  All makes and models are welcome. It is all about showing respect to the Fallen Hero.  


 The group also does Honor/Flag lines at Funerals to provide a barrier between the family and douchebags like the westboro church iditots.   At that point it kinda helps to look like nasty bikers!

Hey 02tac,

       Thanks for the pics and the report about the Patriot Guard Riders. I just want to affirm what you have reported. One of my CSBA chapter members is a Patriot Guard Rider, he is in his 70's and rides a Piaggio Scooter. He has never reported any guff from H-D folk and he rides huge mileage numbers. As far as other H-D riders, whenever I have been to veteran's events or those where one club is supporting another I have seen strong determination and toughness from these riders. There's probably about half of those that ride the bar and shield that don't wave and give us guff'; the rest are good folk who love to ride and put in the miles. Stay safe all,

P.S. yes I did ride to work today.  :)

I had a nice coating of mud, salt, and general road spew all over the Connie.

BTW I brought this up in a thread before about brake pads swelling in the wet....no doubt about it. They do. Might depend on the kind of pads, but it's bone dry out today and my brakes felt normal.

Hosed the bike down good and wouldn't you know it by the time I pulled the bike out of the car wash my front brakes felt noticeably tighter, not a lot, but
enough I could feel it.

Commuted yesterday on my Vespa 300 Super. I live in Lancaster and had a dentist appt. in Hellam (York Co.) first thing in the morning, about a half hour on the highway one way. The Vespa tops out at about 80. I enjoyed passing sporty cars on a scooter.

My dentist is one that takes your blood pressure before the appointment. The assistant remarked, "You must really enjoy your ride in.... your blood pressure is low!"

Why the Vespa? I had already ridden the Versys this month, and I wanted to run some gas through the Vespa and charge its battery. It turned out to be the perfect tool for the job. I got to use every bit of it, with nothing extra. The problem is that I only used about a half gallon of gas!  :bigok: Good for economy, but I wanted to empty the tank and refill it with fresh. Oh, well.

It always amazes me how much moisture can make it feel like the temperature is even lower  :crazy:  This morning was 36* and a light mist and 39* when I came home. Yet when I rode the bike in a nice dry 15* I felt fine.


Damn straight. It always feels colder when that damp in in the air. It was a thick, hi humid damp today. Oh hell it was just raining on and off.  :p

Hey Greidel - do you use Vespa of Lancaster on Rt 72?  I went by there to check and they seemed mostly a used car lot.

Yes, I did buy there. When I did, they were trying to get a Vespa dealership off the ground. They said they were going to send techs to get trained and have a service department, and remodel the showroom. Then the recession hit and I saw none of that happen. The other part of their business is just south of the showroom, on the other side of the gas pumps. They were going to remodel that.

I currently go to Lebanon for service. The Vespa is a fun little bike around town. Easy to park... because it's so cute and stylish, nobody minds if you pull it right up in front of their store. I actually had an Italian cafe owner invite me to park it on his sidewalk. And nobody suspects it's power. Every time I pass a car I think, "You just got passed, by a scooter!". I've used it on rides with friends, and on a curvy back road I will pull away from a less confident rider on a GXR 750.

But on the highway, it is capable... barely. The 12" wheel make it susceptible to wobble and its aerodynamics get it blown around a lot. I have a Versys also, and on that I feel like the king of the road. On the Vespa, you feel like you're a daredevil using a tool for something beyond that which it was designed for. Which is fun sometimes, but the confidence of the Versys is comforting. I find myself dreaming of a Ninja 1000, and I need to keep reminding myself that the Versys is the perfect bike for me and that the Ninja would just get me in trouble.

Very cool!  What are your impressions of the Tiger as compared to the GT for touring?  I have been kicking around the idea of a more dedicated ST rig and a dirt oriented bike, but a bigger ADV bike (800 - 1200 range) may be able to handle both roles for less money......

They're so different that it's tough to make a direct comparison.

The Tiger is a great bike. Big fun in the twisties, plenty of power, it feels nice and light at speed. The suspension soaks up nasty pavement without being too terribly soft. It would make a great tourer if the bolt upright riding position agrees with you. The Tiger's power comes on a little more gradually. That's not really a criticism. I don't think I'd want the kind of hit you get from the GT on a bike with any off road intent. The Tiger would be much more manageable in a low traction situation.

I prefer the Sprint as a touring mount. The Tiger would be a better choice for plenty of riders just for the ergos if for nothing else.

I rode in today, but no pic. Maybe I'll get one at lunch.

The VFR said it was 25* when I left the house, 31 when I got to work. But it's supposed to be in the 50's today, and 60's tomorrow.

God what an awesome day. It's 60, sunny, and dry/low humidity.

Brought the fair weather riders out today. I've been like the lone bike on my side of the valley with the exception of my friend AL, and a
rouge KLR rider who's out on his commute all the time. I've seen the KLR guy many times over the winter.

Today I saw like 5 HD's, 2 Suzuki Boulevards, an Aprilia or something exotic, and my co-worker hauled his Honda Sabre/Shadow out of the garage today.

I can't stand Harley's but the engine rumbles and semi loud pipes were actually welcome to hear.

now a few years ago I started a tag game that has a masscot, his name is Dunkin Duck
(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/141940290.jpg)

He's been traveling around New England for 3 years.  Here is the first post on my website with the rules of the game.  
http://blogs.delphiforums.com/n/blogs/blog.aspx?nav=main&webtag=dunkinduck&entry=55
This is played on the NER message board.

He had been sitting in Rehoboth MA for a few weeks, I decided to go down and rescue him.   When people get him they also get to put their name somewhere on him. He has a little note with him telling people that he is part of a treasure hunt game, and there is a small sharpie as well.
   This is where I found him

Nice Superhawk man. I always lusted after one of those, and especially in the yellow.

I generally love yellow,, don't know why, but yellow is the shit.


I've heard that 996 Honda twin is amazing, and with a nice pipe on it sounds like heaven, and it's a little powerhouse to boot. Too sporty for me to tour on but it's a killer twisties bike.  :thumbsup:

Actually yesterday but hey, I've been busy smoking cigars, drinking coffee and napping.

My old buddy John Todd is in town, he has a business (http://www.toddecological.com/) that purifies local waters with a bio something or other. I do know how it works as we used to party at his dads house where the research that he uses was originated.

I had a great ride to the work site where we had a quick catch up to plan a dinner with him, myself, my kids, wife and Ex wife (blessed to have that sort of relationship).

After all that excitement it was off to lunch with the lovely Mrs. Black.

I stopped at the yuengling brewery, in pottsville, to get a tag for another forum, and set the new tag in centralia, the town with no citizens, and an underground coal fire. I should have taken more pictures.

I've spent a lot of time down there, my wife grew up a few miles away.  I used to ride my bike the length of the canal end to end a few times a day when training for a LD bicycle ride.  Plymouth / Bourne Rd. is still one of my favorites, almost hit a wild turkey on there a couple of weeks ago.

I was up in and around the Catskills today.  This is on RT47, Frost Valley Road near Claryville.   This is a very fun road, made even better if you're on something like a motard or dual sport.

All told I rode about 375 miles today.  Fantastic weather plus great roads equals an awesome ride!

While running an errand to Southern Lanc Co, I got nailed by yesterday's storm.  The clouds became deep shades of black - I tried to detour around it but to no avail.  It was a real soaker.

Awesome day of riding. Started out with a 90 mile ride to Ephrata for breakfast at the American Legion (happens the 1st Sunday of each month in nice weather). After eating, I spent about 45 minutes checking out the incredible variety of bike/trikes/other that always show up. Followed that up with a 170 mile ride to get home. Found some INCREDIBLE PA back roads!!!! Furnace rd, near Airville for one.

The return trip included passing Three Mile Island.
(http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee34/02TAC/Mobile%20Uploads/0603121232.jpg)

Also found another motorcycle (biker) get together at the Union Hotel. Amazing the difference between this event and Ephrata. At Ephrata it was interesting to note that the HD/biker folsk stood out, but you did not think twice when seeing some one with a dayglow green jacket like mine or a Areostitch full suit; they just blend in.  The folks at Union Hotel on the other hand. I was the only person there with hiviz and everyone I saw was drinking.  They were friendly enough and it is just about the right distance for a pit stop (bathroom and a bottle of water), but anyone with actual riding gear stands out.

I was Lazy Saturday.

Slept in late, made a big breakfast, drank coffe and surfed the net, and finally went out riding at 2 PM. Didn't get home 'til 9 PM.   :bigok:

It was 7 PM and I was in Renovo.  I was thinking, should I take a run up 144 or get my ass on the road to home?  :headscratch:

I took the run up 144.  :D

I enjoyed a fantastic day out riding yesterday with a great group of friends.  We rode up to Port Jervis, across Hawks Nest, 590, 390 and back into Jersey around Round Valley.  We took a little break when a storm cell passed through but stayed somewhat dry, enjoyed plenty of laughs and blew  the carbon out.

Him explaining how it went down! Haha.  Glad he had a sense of humor about it.  Full leathers, no injuries, bike still looks the way it did before the crash is a win!

Would have some pics but my computer is super old :( getting a tablet this week. Really surprised about those roads today, nobody around very little traffic lots of new pavement the only trouble i had was running over a snake on 641 in a 20 mph turn :eek: got a little wiggle that caught me off guard. 103 west was like finding a treasure. It was a Monday things would be different on a weekend, hope to get some pics when the tablet arrives :)

Spanky came up to Casa de Cablebandit Friday afternoon for a rear tire change and the inaugural Central PA Ice Cream Tour. We started the tour by cage Friday night at the Penn State Creamery (we caged it so we could give Spanky a driving tour of campus).

Saturday morning, after a hearty breakfast of eggs, sausage, and biscuits, we set out on a 202-mile loop of some of the best road in Centre, Huntingdon, Mifflin, and Union counties with two stops for ice cream - Peachey's in Belleville and the Lewisburg Freez. There are plenty more ice cream shoppes and shacks for future tours!

Nice!  I'd love to make it back to Quebec (as well as Bah-Ha-baaa and Mt Washington).  Can't wait for your report.  :popcorn:

Looks like some good runs from ApeDel & the Desmos, as well as the Cablebandits, too.   :thumbsup:

Shot down to Hazard CT. to meet K2D2 (what a silly name) at the cigar store with the comfy leather chairs.

(http://i855.photobucket.com/albums/ab119/john2cook1/STN/k2d2.jpg)

Endured I91 North to get through the ugly and rode RT 47 into Hadley.

Went up Skinner MT. State Park. (no pic, oops)

Through some fine country roads to The Quabbin Reservoir,

(http://i855.photobucket.com/albums/ab119/john2cook1/STN/quab.jpg)

Hot Dogs at Jannine's.

(http://i855.photobucket.com/albums/ab119/john2cook1/STN/jan.jpg)

Showed him around the luxury shed and on his way he went.

It was a nice little ride.

2 things Mr. Black.

1. you still have a motorcycle?

2. I was working from that very location you were parked in on the Quabbin this morning while I had a house showing.  I sat at the picnic table there and used my Droid.

We should go for a ride soon.

One of has been busy with important life stuff. The other has been just plain goofing off - kayaking, riding and smoking cigars.

My band played at the Pirates and Wenches thing last night at the Harbor Shack. Right as we got set up outside the sky opened up. Busted ass to get everything tarped, then moved indoors and had a really fun night. The crowd was off the hook.

Yup. I did.

I headed to my home Town of Litchfield CT. this morning for shits and giggles. Anyone from the area knows of the roads around The Barkhamsted Reservoir are a pretty decent ride.

This area is on the way (kind of).

(http://i855.photobucket.com/albums/ab119/john2cook1/STN/photo-3.png)

I wasn't planning on being near the airport but while there I looked for the current phototag. You'd figure there'd be helicopters, right?

Nope.

The air museum
(http://i855.photobucket.com/albums/ab119/john2cook1/STN/photo1a.jpg)

A bit of trespassing at Bradley Field
(http://i855.photobucket.com/albums/ab119/john2cook1/STN/photo2a.jpg)

While passing through town I stopped by me best friends house to say hey to his parents. His dad said he was at the cottage on the lake for the week (he is a left coaster)

This is Billy
(http://i855.photobucket.com/albums/ab119/john2cook1/STN/photo1-4.jpg)

He was a big influence in my youth, think - weed, speed, shrooms, booze, LSD and the Grateful Dead.  I didn't say he was a good influence.

The lake
(http://i855.photobucket.com/albums/ab119/john2cook1/STN/photo3a.jpg)

We ran into three Norton's and a couple old triumphs in pine grove gassing up. They had just returned after a 1300 mile trip. It was pretty cool seeing several commandos that still get loaded and ridden. They kickstarted and left while we admired their rides. Real bike people.

Yes I did a little ride over the w/e

Rode to see two friends in Rockland Cty, NY.  Left Saturday, stopped at Hot Dog Johnnys in Buttzville, NJ

in lot of HDJ
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k15/nnjhawk02/IMAG0818.jpg)

Sadly was running late & had to slab it most of the way :(

But meet w/ friends had a great drink up in Nyack and crawled off my buddies couch Sunday morning & headed back to Pa, via backroads in NY.

Some old favorites of mine (didn't stopped to take pics).  Cut thru Harriman State Park on Rt. 106, then Rt. 17A thru Greenwood Lake NY, then Cty Rd 1.  Stopped for gas & bano break in Pine Island, NY.  Door to inside of gas station store was locked and I read signed that person is in bathroom, OK I'll wait, 5 mins later she comes out and tells me to walk around side of building to use bathroom (which had a sign that said it was out of order).  Then I got yelled out for not flushing toilet (I only pee'd) so while I'm pumping gas the kinda hot Indian woman tells me to go flush after I'm done, I told her I did wash my hands  :lol:  Weird I thought I was saving some water, after I flushed (and washed hands again) she promptly locked the door, while bitching thats why I don't let people use it -  :lol:  Wacko

Headed into Port Jervis thru famous Hawks Nest (Squid alert)  I've not been thru here for at least 2 years & looks to be repaved, was nice.

Hawks Nest
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k15/nnjhawk02/IMAG0822.jpg)

 After sweeping passed some slow cruisers & rafting buses on Rt. 97, crossed Delaware on Rt. 434.  Stopped for water & bathroom break @ intersection of RT. 6 and again had sign that said its out of order :headscratch:  The Indian guy tells me its ok to use.  What is it w/ thess folks?  Part of owning a gas station is to keep a filthy bathroom for us to use :D

Made left onto Rt. 390 in Poconos and stopped and grabbed a burger @ Promised Land Inn.  Headed down on Rt. 447 / 715 toward Tannersville, saw that the sky was starting to darken and while gas light is flashing stopped to fill up as it just started to down pour.  Put on Frogg Toggs & rode thru rain on/off for next 40 mins to home.

Nice to get out to ride.

For a guy that only works weekends I was pretty damned busy this week.

Today however.................

Mrs. Black smokes cigarettes. $9.00 a pack American Spirits. :crazy:

In New Hamster they are only $65.00 a carton. I volunteered to go.  :thumbsup:

As many days do It started out early in the basement of a church in Palmer Ma. Out of the house at 6.

Breakfast in Barre MA.

I had only a rough idea of the direction to go. I knew more of the places I wanted to avoid.

Saved 75 bucks on three cartons of smokes. Minus the tank of fuel.  ;)

It was 40 degrees when I left this morning, 80 when I got to the store. I dusted off the heated stuff this morning. I love my topcase.

I did get out today for a few hours. The camera batteries were low and the damn thing kept shutting off. I'm guessing that's why some of the pics were blurry..

Rode to HS football game Saturday in NNJ, Wow what a game - St. Joesph (Montvale) v. Bergen Catholic, #3 v. #1 in NJ and SJR beat BC in OT, very exciting game.

Stopped @ Thisilldous in Belvidere for breakfast :thumbsup:  Then some backroads, but mostly slab to NNJ.

Pic @ Game

Was going to go up 17A, but the NY Renaissance fair was causing a big traffic jam, so I re routed around that mess.  It was a great day yesterday & I had to add my Irish rugby shirt & close jkt vents as I was getting a bit chilly.  Stopped in Warwick, NY for lunch, then continued on Rt. 1 in da OC.  Took some twistys thru Sussex Cty, NJ back to home.

Good ride all around

I took the KLR in the woods and found the top of the sand flume again:

I also washed the Blackbird for the first time in 3 years.

I hit a "Milestone" too:

I washed and rode the Tuono as well:

And, I found yet another turtle.  Moved at least 20 of these fuckers off the road this year.

My turn.  I rode 286 miles yesterday, 9/23/12.  Not much of a picture guy so I only took 3 pics.

On top of the Allegheny Front near Black Moshanon State Park.  The leaves, they are a-changin'.

(http://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/60280_3864174368538_1573961396_n.jpg)

I then hit 53 north to 144 north into and beyond Renovo, all the way into Potter County and to Route 6. God's Country, it says so on the sign.

(http://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-snc7/293061_3864181128707_1431795810_n.jpg)

Took Route 6 over to Wellsboro and then 287 south down beyond Williamsport.

Off to see a man about the care and feeding of a 1971 VW Bug (http://i855.photobucket.com/albums/ab119/john2cook1/jodi-grass-M.jpg).

It wasn't too bad, a bit chilly going.  I put on heated grips, I wish I found my Gerbings temp controller, cause I would have worn that.  Coming home wasn't too bad

I was given a souvenir to take home for parking here too long.

Got out for a bit today, just shy of 300 miles.

Ran the Northern NJ "Staple" roads, 579, 519, 521 with some local secrets in the middle (I'll share!).  The plan was to shoot a few of the cool general stores but I got into a groove, blew by a couple and really only shot one good one on the way back home. Oh well!

Went for a 320 miler today.  60 degrees and the colors were at peak in the Laurel Highlands.  Well, until you got above about 2700 feet, then they were still peak, but most were on the ground.   :D


The highest point in PA:

2 days of riding with my girl!

thankfully my Dad suffered no damage with this last stroke and came home from the hospital yesterday.  We had a few hours between that and when the kids were all gone...So Michelle and I had a nice ride on the Ducati.  I got the T for the last letter tag but didn't use it because I don't like keeping the next letter the same.
(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/147517537.jpg)


We also found this neat little sign in the middle of nowhere Hubbardston

(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/147517530.jpg)

I was in the mood for Hot Dogs so we rode up to Baldwinville MA to hit up Lee's Hot Dog Stand I knew they served up foot longs

(https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn1/33722_441398038019_447849_n.jpg)

However was bummed out to find them closed for season.  So I need to return next year.  We still needed to eat so we stopped at



http://www.zoespizzeria.com/
(http://www.zoespizzeria.com/Zoes%20Rest2.jpg)

I use to service them years ago when I worked as a salesman for Eagle Snacks.   Had a great cheeseburger sub! From here we worked our way home.  All the kids were home so we lined up in the side yard for our Christmas photo

(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/147518171.jpg)


or (which one do you like better?)


(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/147518220.jpg)

The two little ones slept over a friends house Friday night.  So that means only two college girls home Saturday morning.  So that means we have a few more hours to kill...

 

and eat!

(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/147517542.jpg)
(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/147517541.jpg)




We go local this morning..in the next town is one of our favorite places to eat.  The Harvest Grill  Its colder this morning than it was yesterday, and we were not sure just how far we would ride today.  No heated gear on either of us.  During breakfast checked my tag app on the smart phone and noticed the ADV MA tag was in Southbridge, only 35-40 min away.  And I knew of a non chain BBQ joint not too far away, which was the NER theme tag.

So off we went!
(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/147517534.jpg)

(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/147517544.jpg)





The guy that placed the tag left a little something to collect.  A BMW key chain.  The sun was in and out of the clouds all the way down.  Needless to say it was pretty cold when the sun wasn't shining on us.  We stopped in Southbride for a quick warm up at the local Dunkin Donuts, than rode by my old apartment that I lived in when I met Michelle back in 1988.

We took some back roads that lead us up to Auburn and a stop at Motorsports International.  They had some cool bikes on display.

(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/147517547.jpg)

(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/147517549.jpg)
(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/147517546.jpg)





That RWB bike you see above is a 1986 VFR700 made by Honda.  That was the very 1st New bike I purchased way back in 1987.  It was #6 of 22. See the whole list here
http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/every_bike_ive_owned&page=all
 
I loved that bike and together we rode about 60k miles in 18 months.   Here is a photo of my bike back in the summer of 88

(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/54396927.jpg)

We also got a chance to sit on a Yamaha Super Ténéré,  The seat was in the tallest position and it had the huge bags on it. It felt a little taller than my multistrada,   Michelle had a very difficult time getting on.  Hopefully we can have a chance to sit on one with the lower seat.

From here we rode over to the other side of town and placed the new ADV tag, and claimed the NER theme tag.

(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/147517551.jpg)

(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/147517554.jpg)




We started our way home after placing that tag, the long way of course!  The fuel light turned on just as we approached our driveway, which means we rode around 150 miles today.  Not a iron butt, however considering its late November and the temps were in the low 40's for the whole day...I take it!

My honest opinion: No. Soft side bags don't work without some mods, lack of wind protection for the pillion, stock shock only good to about 200~, stock seats junk (I have Russell Sport Saddle)

Definitely a sport-touring bike.

Post by: OSJ on December 23, 2012, 08:18:23 pm
but I was out on the bike last night...Mrs OSJ was a little worried for me being out in the dark so late in December

Seeing the weather will be changing shortly, and I hope to be out in this I figured I would try and get one last ride in this season?  I went in search of a few tags.

(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/147977795.jpg)


(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/147977796.jpg)


I was looking for a tag that starts with E.  So when riding thru Sterling I figured I would ride thru a cemetery and see if someone has an interesting Epitaph.  I saw a few while slowly riding around but than this one caught my eye

(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/147977811.jpg)



I rode around the other side and look what I see..

(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/147965188.jpg)


I didn't know Donald  but seeing we shared the same wind in the face I felt I should leave a little something to thank him for allowing me to use his final resting place.  I took off the key chain TSI gave me when I turned in my tour card a few years ago and left it for him.

(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/147977807.jpg)

It was cold but I was only a few miles away from home.  It was so nice seeing all the houses lit up with Christmas lights as I rode my trusty KLR back home.  

Could this be the last ride of 2012?  Not sure, but if it was I can honestly say its been a GREAT year!

Heading from PA to WV tomorrow for the region 6 6th annual winter meet. I'll make sure we post pics from there..  

Some of you other region 6 hardcores should attend.. We always have a good time.

It's been a while since I've been out but I got in a local favorite 65-mile ride twice over the weekend - sorry no pics, you'll just have to take my word for it!

Saturday it was 52 degrees in the middle of the afternoon and yesterday it was 32 degrees when passing the same point at the same time. Both days were beautiful and sunny here in western Pa - there's something really refreshing about riding in the middle of the winter and seeing the sun sparkle on the roadside creeks that are usually hidden by foliage..... and heated gear makes it actually enjoyable even on my naked Uly  :thumbsup:

been two weeks of below freezing weather with a few dinky snow events thrown in.

I figured today would be the day to take the KLR out..however woke up to a little dusting on the roads. So I started the day with a walk down our local rail trail.

(http://www.pbase.com/oldstonejim/image/148663092.jpg)



Then visited with Mrs. OSJ at my office for a little while, before I headed out for a two hour ride.

Why yes I did. :crazy:

My buddy is off work this week & wanted some help chipping some brush / small logs that he had cut on his property.  Since we only have one cage, had to take the moto.

I left yesterday & the VTR looked like this  :facepalm: :lol:

(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k15/nnjhawk02/IMAG0134.jpg)

After digging it out, unplugging the battery tender, I checked the tire pressure & not too bad, but broke out the air compressor to fill the tires, but since I have a new hose attachment, I had a tough time getting air in the tires - can't wait to get new tires as I will install those right angle valve stems.  Took me about 10 minutes contorting the air hose to fill the tires, What a PITA :o

Then getting dressed for the conditions - it was about 35 to 40 degrees when I left house yesterday.  Gerbings check, heated grips - yeppers - trying to squeeze my fat gut into the liner plus jacket  :eek: scary.

And of course I barely had enough petrol to make it to his house. :headscratch:

So I helped him until we got too tired & torched the rest.  Charlie U get the gasoline, Eddie U get the matches - we gonna start a fire.

(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k15/nnjhawk02/IMAG0136.jpg)

Played with his new dog - a Cane Corso - he's just a puppy (about 6 months) and he loves to play - great dog

Meet Enzo

(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k15/nnjhawk02/IMAG0137.jpg)

Well I crashed @ his place, then rode home late this morning as it was just starting to rain/snow in the Lehigh Valley.  And since he lives West of me, I factored I'd be good w/ no precip.  Wrong.  It was raining more the farther East I rode.  Oh well its not too far.  Thankfully I was wearing my ski overpants.

It was nice to get out and ride, if only briefly in the cold & rain :bigok: :lol:

Lastly, I may ride again next week to Daytona - if I don't go there> maybe DR for a boys trip ;)

the snow is finally gone on the southern shore of Lake Ontario. A quick spin to Fair Haven to see if the carb work, finally drilled the choke jet out and moved the needle clip, and the pieces parts will create synenergy. Synergy not so much.... :(

Carb work came out great.... Waiting on an Eastern Beaver wire harness to tidy things up and add the Strebel Horn.

No love between the Corbin seat and the IMS tank.

 photo 2013-03-17_17-29-06_700.jpg

If the new tank will make at least the trip to work the 1 gallon aux tank will go so the Dirt Bagz can go back on.

On an good note the Powerlet jacket and gloves will be replacing the Aerostich bib and Gerbings gloves.

1 bike down, two to go. 30 oF. Is it wrong to covet anothers Husky :inlove:

I just got home. Had a great ride. It is great to push back the cold and get out there!

I took no pics so you will have to be happy with a file photo

Yesterday picked up the FJR from Syracuse. Hit part of the Seaway Trail and had to ask myself, "What was my interest in an 800 again?".

2 down and one to go.

I was going to ride this afternoon, even washed and waxed the bike for the first time this year. But after only 4 hours of sleep last night, I thankfully decided against it. Feel asleep in my computer chair right when I would have been riding.

This evening I had an hour meeting from 8-9. Left home at 6:20 and got back at 10:55. I think I did it right.

Fabbed up a new set of airwings yesterday. Old ones were cracked to pieces. Free smoked plexi from my old job after plant shutdown. They're not perfect, but theyll do.

Well didn't ride today but did a little ride last week...from San Diego back to PA.  :p

Rode my FJR out to San Diego in January and left it there until things warmed up a bit for the trip home. Last Saturday started the trip back home. It wasn't exactly a warm trip back though and I actually hit snow and freezing rain coming over the Rockies. Anyhow Utah was nice but the rest of the trip was basically cold and rainy except the last day from Dayton OH to Bethlehem PA which was just cold. Trip out took 11 days due to hitting two snow storms in Texas and New Mexico. Trip home took 7 days due to having to stop early one day due to crazy strong winds in Northeast Colorado. Made it safe and sound though and the FJR never even hiccuped through 16 degree weather, snow, ice rain and wind.

Pics from Utah

Met this group of goobers for breakfast at a country diner south of Rochester....
(http://trekkr.smugmug.com/Motorcycles/Various-2013/i-SLDNxVt/0/M/IMG_1342-M.jpg)

... where they disrespected my way cool top box with a Laconia sticker, (Sergiy, our Ukrainian bud, kept asking where my chicken was. "Back in old country chickens put in box").
(http://trekkr.smugmug.com/Motorcycles/Various-2013/i-89FNLs9/0/M/IMG_1343-M.jpg)

We rode this gaggle of bikes south-ish into the Finger Lakes.....
(http://trekkr.smugmug.com/Motorcycles/Various-2013/i-qs4FLtQ/0/M/IMG_1345-M.jpg)
(there was a Blackbird, new MultiStrada, ST1300, Tiger1050, ZX1000, R1200R, R1, ZX1400, my Sprint and some dude rode up on an old Yammy 750 triple)

... and enjoyed this view of Canandaigua Lake from one of the best scenic overlooks in the area, just north of the village of Naples, NY.
(http://trekkr.smugmug.com/Motorcycles/Various-2013/i-2TpPbZc/0/M/IMG_1344-M.jpg)

Nice hair cut Mr. Black, but I think I might have cut it shorter being that your barber is so well endowed, with nice eyes. :p

And yes I did ride. I wanted to try my new HOT weather windshield mod on my C14.
(http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t86/st2sam/IMG_0002_zpsfc187300.jpg)

It's about one inch above the dash. It's surprising how smooth the air flow is, like riding a naked bike, much cooler... :thumbsup:

Sam,

Let me know if you notice more heat at your legs from that mod.. For some reason, when I had a shorty on it seemed to change the way the air flowed thru the lower part of the bike.

I could not feel any difference below my waist, still HOT.   What amazes me is people actually buy heated seats for these bikes. :headscratch:
From what I've read on the C14 site, some '08-'09's are hotter than others.
 I must have a HOTTER one. BUT I'm not complaining too much because about two thirds of my riding times the heat is welcomed. :bigok:

Stopped to see an old friend from the early seventies that went to seminary and somehow ended up as the headmaster of Kent School (http://www.kent-school.edu/)
They were a bit taken back when I went up to him and said hey Dick! instead of Father Schell.

About 10 miles from home I had had enough of the slowness of some people and my inner hooligan came out. I may have passed a few cars and they may have been upset by that. Horns, fingers, chase etc... Pussies.

How are the leaves out in VA/WV?  Thinking of taking a midweek ride - did the last few days of rain take a lot of them down?

We were out there a week ago and quite a few were down even before the rains came through.  What was left was fairly mediocre at best.  At altitude it was getting pretty thin.

took the "new to me" bike out for a little spin today.  Other than the quick ride home from buying her (22 degrees at night) I was able to get a good taste of what the big honda was about.

First and foremost...she is pretty  :inlove:

(http://m0.i.pbase.com/g9/67/574267/2/154906390.2xesaVqV.jpg)



(http://m2.i.pbase.com/g9/67/574267/2/154906392.Tow6cYst.jpg)

I remember reading about this bike way back in 1988, when I decided to purchase its little brother the VFR700

(http://m7.i.pbase.com/g3/67/574267/2/54396927.oldbikes1017.jpg)

I went into that honda shop ready to buy one, but when I saw the 700 parked right next to it, and cost over 2k less I ended up riding home on the smaller bike.   Which I loved and put many, many miles on it.  

But that big 1000r was always in the back of my mind.  I knew one day I would own one...

Last sunday was the day!

Today I was able to put about 50 glorious miles on her. Did some tagging, met up with Mrs OSJ for lunch.

(http://m9.i.pbase.com/g9/67/574267/2/154906389.CBzjFpk4.jpg)

I think we are going to get along just fine.  She will fit in just nicely with all my other bikes!

Thanks. Pay sucks but the commute is decent. ;)

Yesterday I took the afternoon to ride back and forth between the VA & WV state line - Always peaceful, sometimes eventful... but that's another story. :)

 Took a last minute ride to Cheat Mountain, WV today (One of my favorites, and go to ride). The weather was just short of phenomenal leaving the Westmoreland County, PA area. Traffic was light through the Laurel Highlands making it an exceptional ride down. Took the back roads through Bear Rocks, to 381 through Ohiopyle State Park.

Quick note, 381 North towards Route 40 had some weird road conditions, like there was perfectly laid out tar snakes in order to prevent sport riders from confidently taking corners too fast, there was the same condition on the other side of 381 past Route 40.

(http://i303.photobucket.com/albums/nn124/xbudducati/WP_20150802_13_49_17_Pro.jpg) (http://s303.photobucket.com/user/xbudducati/media/WP_20150802_13_49_17_Pro.jpg.html)

Road conditions were rough and patchy all the way to route 26 in Bruceton Mills, WV. Followed 26 all the way to Route 50, then took route 50 up to the top of Cheat Mountain. At the top I turned around and started heading back. Word of caution, Route 50 heading up, and on Cheat Mountain is some severely rough pavement, I would proceed with caution up the mountain for the first time this year, until you figure out where the rough patches are at. A few would rattle your teeth.

From there I started heading back, stopped at Cool Springs for a break, and Fuel.

(http://i303.photobucket.com/albums/nn124/xbudducati/WP_20160417_12_53_00_Pro.jpg) (http://s303.photobucket.com/user/xbudducati/media/WP_20160417_12_53_00_Pro.jpg.html)

At this point the traffic (Feet Forward Gang) was getting heavier as I headed back, so I went back the same way I came in order to avoid the heavily traveled routes. All in all, it was a good riding day, feels good to get back out there and start leading up to doing some full day rides.

After breakfast,

 a ride up to Wilmingtonoshit ( hate cities  )for two tag tag grabs.

(http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee34/02TAC/Mobile%20Uploads/image_119.jpeg) (http://s228.photobucket.com/user/02TAC/media/Mobile%20Uploads/image_119.jpeg.html)

Then off to watch my Nephew play ball. His team won!

(http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee34/02TAC/02TAC006/DSCF3255.jpg) (http://s228.photobucket.com/user/02TAC/media/02TAC006/DSCF3255.jpg.html)


Followed this up with a ride over to Revzilla via back roads to 95 south of Philly.

(http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee34/02TAC/02TAC006/DSCF3262.jpg) (http://s228.photobucket.com/user/02TAC/media/02TAC006/DSCF3262.jpg.html)

NOTE, call Revzilla before you go there to see if that actually have ANYTHING you are interested in. As I understand it, the old location (no idea when they moved) was part of the warehouse and just about everything was available. NOT SO with their cheesy ass boutique store  :thumbsdown:. Went up there with a list of five jackets I wanted to check out; they had exactly one of the ones I was looking for. The ever so helpful young lady that was assisting me did say, about a dozen times, that I could simply order what I wanted on line to check out and then send them back at $8 shipping each. That and tried to sell me a $900 jacket that was nothing like I was looking for :baldy:.

(http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee34/02TAC/02TAC006/DSCF3264.jpg) (http://s228.photobucket.com/user/02TAC/media/02TAC006/DSCF3264.jpg.html)

On the way to revzilla, I saw an accident just north of exit 5 on 95. This allowed me, on the way home, to get an imprompto self guided (actually partially GPS guided ) tour of Philly as the accident had things backed up to north of exit 10. Kind of interesting as it took me through places I probably had no business being.

Decided to roll by Powersports East (minuscule gear selection) and Cycle Gear ( better selection, but not sure if I want a Bilt jacket as teh only one that was close to what I wanted is over $300  :crazy: ) while I was up that way. Parking in Cycle Gear's lot, I noticed the ole girl had turned 85,000 miles.   :D

Then, on Route 1 just passed Odessa there was a big ole traffic jam  :facepalm:. Luckily, the "official access only" gate was open and allowed me (and a bunch of other people) to depart the highway and take 13 down. Not sure where the problem was, but the next exit is 6 miles from where I got off and there were no vehicles in the south bound lanes when I passed it.
