Route 9 from Brattleboro to Bennington is some GOOD riding!
You look at home on it. Congrats Tinman!

I really didn't want to walk up to check the old building out but it looked like a lot of work went into it.



Dang short legs on the FJ about got me tossed off. The sage brush is stiff.



Utah is awesome! Sure wished for some knobby tires and a big gas tank.



Finally, somebody closed it!



I have a ton of pics. I'll sort through when I get home. Got to get out of this heat tomorrow.

Actually Tom, I probably would look good on it, but I don't think she will let me Ride it too far. And not sure I could. The peg to seat ratio is really quite short. tall bike, short pegs.

This is her bike. I was just the transport mechanism

Y'all have a good day. I'm beating feet for cooler temps today. 96 was just too much yesterday. I see it's 38 at home.

We have found an area just outside of Nashville that we love. Just waiting for work to come through before we buy a house. Should be soon. Still living in our pop up for now. I can't wait to sit on a couch and put my feet up! Been an adventure for sure. Couldn't stand the no bike thing anymore though, so I'm coming to get the tiger!

Too many projects this summer and family things to do I basically didn't ride at all. It was such a nice day I decided to get reacquainted with my bike. So headed out after a quick oil change and headed NW. Felt good to be back out there.


One use for a trailer


Not what I expected to see in Solon




Took the back way from Eustis to Rangely

Let me know when you get here, um, there. If you have time I'd like to have a beer with you.
