Sweet ride and photography AJ. Very cool indeed.
I'm finding time hard to come by to make it down your way.
But hopefully before long.
Keep after it.

Home safe, sound, warm, tank still with, and a shot of whisky in front of me.

Good to see everyone. Thanks for a great ride.

This is an OLD, OLD road. It is obvious that it has been dug out of the flatland and gently rolling hills it was built through.
Dug out again, and again. And when it got muddy, it was dug out again.
It has become a 6-7 deep scar through the landscape






The views are really nice

Love these roads, good for you, found some without snow.

Just park it next to the old house, and yer done.

I knew we were kindred spirits. I love old buildings and it breaks my heart they have been abandoned. It really bothers me when I see those lovely old schoolhouses used for storing farm equipment, but if their used for storage they usually have a good roof, Buildings go to he?? if they don't have good roofs.. I Dream of restoring one to use a home.

Man did I need that. I'm practically glowing. It wasn't as cold as I expected, but I did get home and went straight in for a long, hot shower. I just got done with the token phone call to the folks. I think that shot of whiskey sounds like a great idea!

Nice ride today guys. I'll get some pictures up here in a bit.

No, it's still on there! It just goes around the front, it's my engine crash protector and if you didn't notice, my ride is orange! all I need is a ADV sticker on it and I'm good to go

I feel downright human again. That was a great day!

I had some responsibility today. I have a little paper cutout to carry around, it's for the Flat Stanley Project for my cousin's son in Michigan. With this and some other plans I have, I think he'll end up with the best pictures and the most interesting history. But I might not be completely objective on that.

I'm glad we went back to Moody Rd. today, I missed it on Friday's journey.

Below pic is from inside the old Fairbanks School. It looks like it's still used as a Grange today,
it's pretty well taken care of, with visitor's graffiti all over the chalkboard.

Yes, Flat Stanley, thanks for coming with us.

It WAS a great day for riding, eh?
Clutch dis-engagement be damned, it wasn't gonna mess up my ride !!

Stanley could stand some nutrition, yes. Some fattening up.

So you think I should turn him into Fat Stanley before he goes home? Instead of an envelope I'll have to mail him via "if it fits it ships."
