But he forgot to take Sancho with him! At least now he has a name for his new ride..."Rocinante!"

Ok
Back to Buisness. These 13 WindMills produce enough electricity to power 6500 homes. Like the sign said. Locust Ridge Wind Farm. What we did not see was the address on the sign. Bandonville Rd outside Mohanoy City is the magic spot.
Now to venture out and find a new tag......

Sorry for the delay with posting the new tag. My wife is out of town and my kid is home from school sick. I may be willing to ride in any weather, but I can't put my kid thru it to go tagging. I will find something tonight after my wife gets home. If it doesn't snow. Hee Hee. Ok even if it does snow.....

Sorry about the Artistic License. I am a Photographer. And it just felt right. A cold December morning. Pictures of a dead place. And an almost dead bike. Its almost time to put the RatMax down for the winter. The Tw200 and the KTM wont be that lucky.
The largest anthracite coal processing building of its kind. Construction on the Breaker was complete in 1939 and operations finally ended 1976. For a local this will be an easy one. For anyone coming from the SouthWest the ride will be fantastic. An early morning 29 degree ride.

Of course I know right where this is...I'm supposed to be putting up Christmas lights, maybe I could take a small diversion?

I believe this was called the "Huber Breaker" home of the "Blue Coal Corporation" Ashley, PA. After seeing Dennis' shot in B&W I had to try it with the Norton.

Nice!!
It looks like an advertisment for Norton. All you need is a hot chic standing next to the bike with some tight ripped up jeans then I would print the picture out and hang it in the shed.

Thanks....I didn't have a lot of time for the shot. I had to stand in the road and it's fairly busy right there

Gased up, oil & tires checked, chain lubed, and shield cleaned. Need a stupid excuse to ride if I'm going to blow off work. I may just take off early and sit outside Dennis's house, and see what is faster, an NX650, or a half dead RatMax (or maybe a KTM690 w/o a licnese).

Sorry it took so long to post. I did something to my back. I hope its better before the repost. Or at least I hope the tag stays within 100 miles by the weekend.
