Last week's parallel black stripes I photographed on the pavement were nothing compared to the stretch of road I saw this morning just outside of town. This is the last in the series of black tire track photos.
Away from the STOP sign.....
and back to the STOP sign.....
Riding in the valleys was misty today; climbing up on top put me right into the clouds so visibility was tough between my glasses and visor shield.
I stopped at the Mount Tabor Cemetery, the site of a former log church, now long gone.
There were many soft and mushy walnuts ridden over today.
I challenge anyone to count the number of shades of brown.
As of yesterday, I could not have told you when the last time was that a dog got after me and bit.....that changed today and now I'll remember for awhile. I had enough holes in my 'Stich pants, now I'll need another patch kit.
I downloaded an App last week called Fieldtrip and used it today to find some Historical Markers. It makes use of sites listed on the Historical Markers Database, an App I already had on my phone.
Bet you never thought of Wisconsin and Mastodons....
Mike arrived with the '70 Honda Police 450, so we got it unloaded and went for a ride. I got a chance to not only ride it, but to run the red lights AND the siren.......
Dusk and skies are clearing......moving NE from us.
Hi Coop, thanks for the photos and story. I can smell the fall air when I look at the pictures. What a wonderful time of the year to ride!ReplyDelete
B.R., it was so nice out yesterday, the smells, the look and speaking personally, very much a feeling. My affection for this time of year runs deep and being able to ride through it is so much better.Delete
Hey guy! Oh yeah, these are my kind of roads too! I second the notion of loading up the machine and taking it out to other areas for exploration rides. I think it's a great idea!ReplyDelete
Love those photos, especially the cow friend. I am wanting to hit my own back roads this weekend but have been way laid by lots of rainstorms, which we also need here, so I am hoping for tomorrow.
I love to browse historical markers as well, so thanks for the app info.
Enjoy your time immersed in autumn riding....stay safe!
Deb, there's always been the feeling among 'the pros' that Real Bikers don't haul their bikes, only ride them. Some day I may have to worry about Real Biker status but that hasn't started yet. It makes so much sense this time of year......poor weather, shorter amounts of daylight, the ability to take more gear, comfort items, etc. make a hauling adventure pretty fun.Delete
We needed the rain and this area seems to have received it, probably slightly more than they would have needed at once. The greens are green, let me tell you!!
Very nice snippets from the road. Although riding through fog might be challenging it makes for an interesting shot. The one with your bike on top of the hill is my favourite in this eclectic selection of pictures. The siren of the Honda is kinda sweet, but I doubt it would be taken seriously, or would it?ReplyDelete
Thanks Sonja, I don't mind the fog and like you, find it easy to enjoy....as long as it's not tooo bad. I came out of the woods, the road still climbing and I saw that lone tree peeking through the fog. I knew the Honda silhouette just had to be at the crest.Delete
Funny, there was another Honda Police bike at the event today, quite a coincidence and its siren had a much different sound, something we discussed at length, odd since Tokyo Siren produced both of them at roughly the same time. It gave us mechanical geeks something to ponder anyway.
Looks like a fun misty day for some rides. Great pictures. Lots of shades of brown but beautiful green too.ReplyDelete
By the looks of those tire stripes I sure wouldn't want to live anywhere near that intersection while people are lighting up their tires and/or doing smoke shows. In these parts if you are caught you will get a $100 per foot ticket.
A misty morning that slowly gave way to clearer air as the day went on, finally giving us a star-filled sky as the daylight completely left.Delete
$100/foot?? These Wisconsin counties could put their tax collectors on permanent sabbatical.
At first I felt sorry for the people in the white house, but then I realized that it has to be where the "offender/s" live. That kind of noise usually happens about 1 AM. Deputies must not be interested...ReplyDelete
Martha, I think you're right about the white house. If they aren't directly involved, they are almost always co-conspirators. Maybe it's a matter of so many, so spread out that the deputies are at wit's end.Delete
all that rubber on the road... those damn Amish buggies... :)ReplyDelete
