As much as I'd enjoy getting bruce'd three days in a row, I can't get out that way today.
Go for it! You could become a legend.

Grab!

Ali and I met for the first time today. She's a frisky gator and wanted to play..


We took the photos and said our hellos, then I placed her into the tank bag which she didn't want closed.




If she would behave I'd give her a treat she'd find yummy. Off to Bluemont we rode where she knoshed on some fine gummies (worms).

a trinket left behind

In the place where Ali did recently sit, I've placed a small trinket so the Bruce'd won't say "aww sh*t!"

That's a clever idea! Now someone HAS to go ride there, or if they ride by, they have to stop and see if there is a Bruce token.

Tag

Let your fingers do the walking and this clue may be all you need. Ali you will find waiting, but this time not in the weeds.


Tag shot:


Ali sits under the clump of white flowers to the left of the blue chair. She's fed and watered and doesn't have a care. Here you see her little face, but before I left she sidled in further leaving not a trace.

Its been on the market for 3-4 months at least.

I'm pretty sure I don't have any more room for parts bikes!

And your new tag is so tempting! Less than 10 miles away!

Congratulations on your first grab! I hope this is the first of many. That stretch of road looks better in the sunlight, rather than in the rain. Keep those city boys on their toes. I'll be back, one day you all least expect it. Like Ernest T. Bass, you ain't heard the last 'o me!

BTW, nice bike. I bet you are proud of it. You are on the right track, wanting to learn how to take care of it. It will bring a confidence that will allow you to look to a horizon, and know there is nothing between you and it that you can't handle. For an Adventure Rider, it's all the permission you need to go there.

Thanks Vatrader, this is nice of you to say.
So far the boys are keeping me on my toes, but I'm trying to keep up the best I can.

Elkhound- The 3rd time is the charm in this case.
