You did a great job of knocking the n00b off, Doc. Great times. Looking forward to the next installment. :)

My daughter Brynn is visiting for two weeks from California. She and I have always been best friends, and it's great to see her again, especially for this extended visit.

She and I have logged a zillion miles on motorcycles before, mostly on my '96 Buell S2 Thunderbolt, but it has been FOREVER since we've ridden together.

We made up for some lost time this past Saturday by ducking out and taking a quick spin up to Mabry Mill on the Parkway. The restaurant, gift shop and mill were shuttered (thanks, Mr. President), but the grounds weren't Barrycaded and we (and many others) enjoyed visiting OUR park.

It was an awesome ride with my daughter, friend, and mom to my two handsome grandsons. :)

We stopped at Groundhog Mountain (mile marker 188.8) to photo-document the park closure:

Someone had added a heartfelt political comment to the "federal government shutdown" sign:

Some folks pulled up on a Can-Am Spyder while we were stopped. The pilot looked at the shutdown sign, looked at me, and said, "Damned politicians!"

I replied, "One politician."

The four of us proceeded to have a lively discussion on politics. Our new friends Bill and Rita are conservatives, like me, and had nothing good to say about the present administration in the White House. Bill (a veteran, as it turned out - thank you for your service, sir) seemed very well informed on current affairs, and it was interesting to hear all the parallels between his political viewpoints and mine.

I asked if I might take their portrait. "Sure!" I showed them the subsequent image on my camera, to which Bill said, "Now then, please e-mail that to 0bama and tell him he can kiss my ass."

Amen, brother.

Here's some extra-credit material for anyone so inclined, an excellent civics "primer" penned by an outspoken political conservative:

Nice to see you getting some Daddy/Daughter time. She picked the right time of year for a visit.

Tman! Always great to hear from you. :)

Yeah, I'm amped to have Brynn out here for a couple of weeks, and agree on the timing: Our colors are peaking now.

I'll post up some "archival" m/c pix of Brynn here when I get a chance. Both of my children were infected with motorcycles at an early age. My son is presently in the sandbox, but when he gets back stateside he's scheming and dreaming of finally getting his own bike (Triumph, probably). Finally riding side-by-side with my son, after all these years, would be most awesome. :)


I got out Sunday for a short solo ride, before the rains came:
