Met my buddy Fran in NY for some Thanksgiving riding.

Fran rides a nice new KTM 690, I took the KLR.


Great day! 150 or so miles riding between Carmel and Germantown NY.

Funny story:
First stop is for fuel - but since I ride a KLR, I decline - there's plenty of gas in MY tank - after all, it's a KLR! There was 50 miles on my tank at the start of the ride. At 188 miles on the tank I have to switch on the reserve. Having too much fun to think about fuel, the KLR runs dry at 220 miles....after I bragged at the start of the ride of my 6 gallon tank. We lay her down on her left side so the fuel trapped in the lower right side of the tank can slosh over to the left (petcock) side. That gets me to gas station.....which had closed five minutes before we got there. No problem says Fran, just another half mile or so to my house.
I make it to the bottom of Fran's driveway berfore she dies. Here's Fran lugging his gas can down.


Great day for riding, great roads great riding companions, and then to my sisters house for a great Thanksgiving dinner!
Hope all you FFs have a great holiday.
Take care

Little Southern MD excursion with Scotty and Wayne down to Motovation Cycles in Mechanicsville.









BTW: Nice pics Tomc. Looks like we had some nice riding weather (at least for part of the Holiday).

Looks like y'all had a good time at Motovation Cycles. I think WayneJ left something behind. Just checked the MD ToR thread...Yup! Something was dropped.
