Annie got a quickie

So I arrived 0845 for breakfast at my usual morning SPOT when riding bikes.



Left a little late because three HD riders heading to the flat track races talked my ear off about Annie. They live up by Bob's BMW and all fell in love with her... Annie's easy like that. Then it was off to my first stop.

Flat track at Colonial Downs Live stream here: http://www.amaprolive.com/ft/



This place reminds me of a fishing bait shop in Maine.



Map of Northern Neck VA



Some shots from the inside.





Now back to the bike and the long way home.



Arrived at my second favorite park in the area... Mount Vernon is my first if you must know. Yes I am a fan of Washington. Come to my house and you would think I have a serious man crush on the father of our country.



Inside is a mini museum. Oh yeah and the whole park is free to include a very well done video played from an auditorium onsite.













But the real treasures are walking the grounds and seeing the original foundation and memorial house built in 1931.











Like Annie, pictures don't do it justice. Very peaceful.





I only shot a few parts. There is a one mile natural trail, picnic area, and like Mount Vernon, a working farm. Here is the website for more information.

Other video



Route today and check my SPOT



Hope you enjoyed... I did

I checked. Good ride so it was worth it. There are some spectacular country roads in Northern Neck. Weather was perfect and Annie was performing like a ... You know it's in her name.

Bet riding the 666 chopper feels like hell with that metal seat.

Damn and a rigid frame... make any bad ass biker cry like a little girl. Kindey belt a must. My buddy has a big dog mastiff and it was cool to stare at and hell to ride if there is any ossolation or bumps in the road.

Sir Lancelot: Oh, thank you. Thank you very much.

Guess what the GF and I am watching tonight. She has never seen it. Thanks for the idea DCrider.

Too funny. I've learned to think WWSD (What Would Scotty Do) and do the opposite. It has worked for me every time when those damn lawn clippings are scattered all over the road.

Or when I encounter this...for the love of Christ!
