Not a bad afternoon despite having to detour because of a bridge out and then that peculiarly New England practice of fixing muddy stretches of road by dumping a Metric Butt Ton of crushed stone on the road . Thoughts going through my head as I rolled into a nice little off-camber left hander..."OK, off camber here, roll out of the throttle, oh sh-t, there's mess of gravel on the road , Crap, trees (as the bike starts to drift towards the shoulder)! Cool, I'm gonna miss the trees, Oh crap, the river!"

Fortunately I was able to keep the wheels pointing in the right direction and came out the other side with only a an exercised sphincter muscle to show for it . But it was such a beautiful day, that even that, couldn't take the off my face.

Glad you got through that turn, Bill!

BTW, the pucker marks on the seat will disappear after a few hours in the sun.
