2012 New Years Day rides - let's see pics...

How'd those New Years Day rides go? The local Louisville BMW club met this AM for the annual NYD ride down river for breakfast. VERY windy and pretty cold too. Even let a couple Super Tenere's come along.







Let's see what you did.

I figured that out. Too lazy to edit my edit.

I started out attempting to ride the number of miles that it is degrees outside (37) but with it being overcast and 40 mph winds, I decided to go the number of minutes that is is degrees outside. I put about 21 miles on today mainly in town and was gone about an hour. I did ride for about ten miles yesterday checking to see if my fix for the oil leaks worked. Here are a couple of pics. The first one is from yesterday and shows an old building where they used to make railroad cars. I found a raccoon tail around here and mounted it to the back of my milk crate. Slowly I am building a "rat" bike. I didn't mean to do it but it seems to just be happening naturaly. The second is from today and shows an old warehouse close to downtown Bloomington.

A couple of us joined a ride organized by the Southern Cruiser MC. We had a nice 250 mile loop to Panama City and then three of us rode back on Highway 98. Nice to be close to the beach.



My grungy Bandit, a nice BMW and my buddy's CB 1100.



That CB looks and sounds awesome. Every time I ride with him, it makes me want one.

All in all, darn good way to spend New Year's Day.

Went to Ozone....

With temps up to almost 60 degrees I called one of my long time riding buddies and went for a ride up on the plateau.





Walked out to the falls.

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

It was not a long ride, but it was my first in 2012. Here's the video.



See you on the highway.
