Tagged the dam in another game...not to far for me but need to finish my weekend project. Don't see this sitting very long.... I see a scooter moving the Rat.
Great moving the Rat around a great area for riding.

Yep. I've said that tagging gives me some place to go when I've got no place to go.

This is my first ride of the year . We did about 225 miles today, and that is ALL I wanted to do (wuss about the cold...). Honestly, if I lived closer, I wouldn't have moved the rat that far (its not really very far...ok, I figure we moved it 60 miles or so:)...the rat was ready to stretch his legs a little :)....

I hope so! But yeah, count me out unless its in the 50s or warmer

Thanks for the welcome!
Glad you liked the location. Nice re-location and bikes as well.

Grab

Grabed at Philpott Lake Dam at the end of Va. 727.





After tooling around on BMW's and Ducati's the rat was reluctant to ride in a milk crate on the back of a Korean scooter. Not to worry, my daughter has the same inhibition so I came prepared. Why shame him when we are just getting this game rolling?



New tag later today.

Haven't seen a BMW in this thread yet, though. Looking forward to the next spot.

You are right, I should have said KTM's and Ducati's. Also considering the rats recent ride on a KLR I'm surprised a bag over the head was necessary.

j/k.

Somewhere around 65mpg. It cruises nicely up to about 55mph, after that it starts working. I did take 220 home today and it held a constant 60 as long as I got a run at the hills.

And wb57, don't tell anyone it's a laundry basket, I don't want to give the impression I'm cheap. Actually when I retired my previous scooter I removed it to mount to the new one.

The Nest

The rat sure likes his landscaped nests. I don't blame'em! Nice and cozy, protected from the wind and what not, and looks great! I really like that scooter that dropped him off at the new hideout. That seat sure looks a heck of a lot more comfy than the red thin strip of rock hard "foam" on my new honda. Does it have a beer can holder? That would make it a done deal for me (not while riding of course!!).

Well, of course! Those things are at least a couple of bucks at the dollar store!!!
