This little stunt cost me twenty-six cents, and a coating of coal dust.

Worth every penny.

Great pic and story about your Mom!
I bought my 850 new in 1980, and offed it when I bought my first Harley in '84. Great bike, distinctive howl on the boil, a real torque monster. One of the best motorcycles I've ever owned, and I wish I still had it.

Ride To Be Alive Ride

Bedford, Virginia was sweltering in the afternoon sun, so it was with relief and pleasure that I climbed back into the mountains and regained the Blue Ridge Parkway at Peaks of Otter.
A couple of southbound hours later, near the Parkway's Mabry Mill, I decided to give the horse a drink:

A local couple who had brought their young son to this stream to splash and play happened along while I was splashing and playing,
and took this photo for me. I think they thought I was an idiot.

Perhaps they're right.

Refreshed and rehydrated, we motored on.

I see a modest, cozy cabin placed carefully amongst the trees.

There's not much else here, except some contented cows...
