My written excuse is that I don't have a bike. So there.

Hey Mike! It's true, guess it's no point to take a pic of my empty garage space, eh?
BTW - it's been 11 years since we rode to the MOA Nat. Rally in WV. Where does the time go?

I thought I could catch up with you know but you would have to have an empty garage for a very long time. And I have to break the habit of keeping a motocycle for 25 years.

Grab

Grab today on Rt 674 across from the entrance to Our Lady of the Angels Monastery .6 mile west of Millington Road. We took the F8GS and the WR so Pete could try out the Yamalink and adjusted WR suspension.





Tag is on one of the county's oldest and best roads. It is both paved and dirt as it winds it's way from Ivy almost to Afton. We have had tags on this road before.

This one is at the entrance to a farm that is marked by a grand stone entrance and a simple single lane track. The road was named for the man who surveyed it in the late 1790s. His name did not end in an "s" and the road should be spelled with an apostrophe before the "s" at the end but is seldom seen that way.

The total of the three digits of the road number equals 16. The dingus lies 2.4 miles east of where this road intersects Critzer's Shop Road.

As you face the farm entrance from "____ ____'s Road", the mouse is under a piece of wood to the right of the right front stone pillar which has the house number on a plaque attached to it's front side. Zoom in on the picture and you may be able to read the number.

No worries.
I imagine everyone knows where that is.

A breezy Halloween grab:


Dick Woods Rd., about a mile West of Ortman Rd.

Tag:


To the right of the bike are two large stones. Dingus is beside the one farther to the right, under the fence. There's a small stone over the dingus. Road is the name of a small place of worship "Spring" and # adds up to 20.
Still plenty of daylight left before the Goblins come out.

But man, you still riding on that old rubber?
You're one wet leaf away from a ditch!

Nah, I wrestled the new front tire on. Nice round tire with tread is a significant improvement over that triangular shaped worn out thing - especially since it was worn more on the left side. Left-right transitions are now a joy rather than a character building excercise

I am a hard left hand turner. And all my regular loops are counter-clockwise.
