And this is what the beginning of my rdes this weekend brought..........













Wow. Incredible!

Great Pics. I live in Saratoga and you are inspiring me to get out a lot earlier when I ride up to the Adirondacks.

BTW, what type of camera and/or leans are you using?

It's as if your in my backyard because the parents of the Killdeer (chick) were zooming all around us this evening. Every summer we look on the side of our pond because that's the rockiest spot to disguise their eggs.It's amazing how they just blend into the surroundings. We also had to pick up and move a very large snapper recently & I had no idea that they are able to twist their head & neck around, yikes.

I'm going to hit the road early tomorrow & see what I can come up with thanks to you. Please continue with the beauty you are able to capture that eludes so many of us.

Hi prometheus rising. Yeah, I'd love to head out for a ride. However, I'm heading outa town for a bit and it may be a couple weeks. I'll PM you.

I don't think I seen your bike around yet. Great looking bike though.

This is my current steed.



if your out by the lake you probably recognize this area



I was out other night in my ongoing attempt to be a become photographer. I guess I consider myself a good photographer in the same way a Marine considers himself a good machine gunner, achieving accuracy by volume.

Here is a pic of my current fan base.



I appreciate their discriminating tastes.


My plan is to do the Trans Lab Trail next summer and I figure I best get a little better a photography so I can share the trip.

Great thread. Subscribed and we'll have to get out on the bikes soon.

Really nice pics. Some are just great.

BTW, my friend's brother parks his bike in handicapped parking (when he's not in prison that is). He only has one leg below the knee. He keeps his handicapped tag in his wallet.

prometheus rising, thanks for posting some amazing photos. I grew up back in VT and my grandparents lived in Warrensburg. I have some fond memories of the area. The mural on the side of the museum has been touched up well. If I recall, there is a player piano in there from my grandfathers dude ranch near Thurman. Hmmmmmm, Oscars!!! Miss the bacon and smoked cheddar. (I know I can order online, just not the same as standing at the counter) I haven't been back since my grandmother passed. Need to make it back there sooner than later.

Thanks again and keep sharing if you would. Digging the commentary too.

After 4,000 miles and change the stock seat seemed to be getting harder rather than a bit broken in. So after not riding for 3 days, I took off for a bit this morning to test out an item that UPS delivered yesterday...





The storms that swept through last night provoded a somewhat decent early morning with soft muted colors ...






As this was basically a test ride for the seat and i wanted to knock out some miles quicklyI made one stop only and it wasn;t to relieve my butt, I just dug the view






And apparently so did this guy..........






It looks like crazy weather tomorrow and Saturday with severe thunderstorms during the evening and afternoon both days and while it sucks for riding it usually means gorgeous views pre dawn and sunrise so it looks like 1 or 2 magic light sojourns coming up. Sunday looks like a beauty all day and i,m already mapping a route out

Thanks again to all who have stopped by and commented

Oh and I almost forgot - 125 miles on it and I.m loving the seat, Sunday I'll shoot for 250 and see how that feels

Love the thread and awesome photos! Really enjoy your writing as well. Went to the SUNY ESF field camp North of Warrensburg when I was in college and try to get back to the ADK's every fall to hike with some friends.

I may be riding through your area in October this year (time and weather permitting) on the way to a reunion and if so, I'd love to hook up somewhere, even if only for a cup of coffe and some BS.

Thanks for a great thread, please keep it coming.

Let us know how the new seat works out, been considering adding one to my Christmas list

Great photography! You have a fine eye! I ride the 'dacks a lot and I've ridden some of these roads before. Sounds like another weekend run is needed.
