Skyclad's Wanderings

I really enjoy the Day-in-the-life-of threads. Figured that I would do my part to entertain the inmates and share my little corner of the world.





I think I will start by going back a few years to the day I brought the Ulysses home.



Great bike that carried me to lots of wonderful places around the state...

Saturday was a good day.

First, I picked up a new farkle for the garage. No more sitting on the floor to work on the bikes.



Then I put new tires on Mattie.





And went for a ride. Unfortunately, I was having too much fun with the extra traction to remember to get many pictures. Oops. s



Today I took the long way home, but only got in one picture before the battery died on the Droid.



This weekend should be a good one. Doing a local adventure type ride with a bunch of Bastards and other PA folks. Hopefully there will be lots of pics.

Racer43, one of the Bastards, does an adventure ride every spring. I am not sure what the route is going to be yet, but he said there will not be anything gnarly this year.

Here's the thread.

I just looked over the route. Looks pretty good. There are two optional water crossings, and some gravel roads included.

My nearly vintage DR Hybrid with some new farkles and I are back and I hope to see you at the Adventure Ride in Mechanicsburg on Saturday. It would have been nice if the above average temps could have lasted a while longer, it's to be 26 degrees for the ride up but then hit the low 60's in the afternoon. I'd be up for any kind of ride on Sunday.

Howdy Questor.

I do miss the Uly from time to time. Then I hit an un-maintained "road" with Mattie and everything is right in the world. She really is a great machine.

Day 3

Easy day heading home. After I got out to Rt 33, it was pavement the whole way home. No narration required for this day, just enjoy the scenery.


















Yep, pretty good weekend overall. Looking forward to my next trip. Heading to North Carolina in a few weeks. 'til then, just local wandering for this ADV'er.

Hello Skyclad.

It's been years since I meet you and stayed at your place.
I'm sorry to hear about the death of Uly.
I know you loved that bike.

I used to ride big BMW's, but like yourself I switched to KTM's. Aren't they special? I think it's the perfect bike for you.

Anyway, I just wanted to say "Hi".

Q~

Along comes Katie

Folks that know me know that I would often take the Ulysses in places Erik never intended it to go. I really needed something to get a dirty with. So along came Katie.

The death of Ulysses

Little did I know that this was to be one of the last pictures I would take of Ulysses.



Went down on the Saturday ride at the BWDR Fall Gathering last year.

Doesn't look too bad in this picture


But the more serious damage starts to become evident on close inspection




Bent front wheel, forks, rear subframe etc etc etc. Yeah, she was totalled, but at least I walked away with no injuries. The helmet certainly did its job.
