I had to park around the corner since all of the parking spots were full out in front; I guess in a college town students get hungry at noon on Sunday.
The guys did take the time to meet me at South Fork for the breakfast buffet at noon and thanks for breakfast Mark! I followed them over to the shop and mostly stood in the way while they continued work on the pretty red and white bike. This evening I learned that they had it running and put a few miles on it by late afternoon.
Anxious to do some local riding, I left them to their business.
I'm thinking that our leaves must be just about at their peak though that may depend on whether we have a wet or windy week.
After a coffee and cookie stop, I rode in the shadows of the MN bluffs along the Mississippi, too stubborn to stop and put another layer on as I headed for home.
It is that time of year.
Really like that last picture. The bike color is perfect with the trees.ReplyDelete
No rides for us this weekend. We're trying to get a roof on our deck before the rains come back. Only 5 more sheets of poly carb to go......
Thank you, it was a very pretty place to pull over. I hadn't seen a car for an hour on those roads and naturally, I had just walked back to take the shot when one came by.Delete
I'm glad that someone got something done this weekend :)
By the time I get over to that part of the state those lovely dirt roads will be covered in snow. 33 degrees this AM.ReplyDelete
A guy on roller skis just now rolled by my house. Summer's done.
We had a thick layer of frost yesterday ( long before I started on my ride) and this morning it was doing its best to be thick. By sunrise it maybe did get thick.Delete
Look at the shadow of the scooter.......1:00, 1:30 at the latest when this was taken and see how 'tall' the scooter is on the ground.
Summer IS done, no question about it.
+1 what Trobairitz said. Lovely colour composition, Coop.ReplyDelete
Thanks Sonja, I really enjoy being outside on these days; sunny and warm on the windward side, shady and cool on the leeward side.Delete
Your leaves are sort of like ours, with just a bit of yellow. I think I would like to ride some of those roads too. Peaceful with no traffic until you decide to snap a photo
Bob, next time you're in the Midwest, I'll share some of my favorites with you, all easily done on whatever you arrive on (or in).ReplyDelete

Riding the Wet Coast
Perfect, it's on the calendar!Delete
Great pictures of your scoot on the backroads. Especially enjoy the last one!ReplyDelete
Thanks B.R., I know you'd like to spend time riding in this neighborhood. Wisconsin's Rustic Road program highlights many of the good ones, but there are many, many that aren't even included and more fun to ride.Delete
Nice pics Coop!ReplyDelete
Thanks Dar; my favorite places and time of year so I hope that shows!Delete
Love this time of year! Great pics Doug.ReplyDelete
Thanks Scott. I haven't given up on the season yet, the Swan Ride is coming up on the 3rd. I should be able to do some very local gravel regardless.ReplyDelete
