2022 Riding Year In Review - Part 2

This should cover the highlights from my point of view at least.  A couple of additions this time.....

Total miles (the bikes were) ridden  =  14941

Of those, son Ben put on  =  512

Nights spent in the Town N Country  =  9

Nights spent in motels  =  12

Nights spent in my tents  =  9

Here are the charts if you missed the first video.

 


 

As I'm mentioning in the video, note the poor '22 performance of my Hyosung GT250R up at the tippy top of the pie....0 miles.  Which is exactly how far it ran back in '21......it just doesn't have enough power to pull itself and myself on one cylinder.  That has now been corrected.

You and I both are expecting a much better outcome for the lovely little V twin next season.
 

Here we go.....

Red Wing's Holiday Stroll - 2022/11/25

A beautiful late November evening the day after Thanksgiving, 46 degrees beautiful.  I chose not to wear my shorts but had I done so, I would not have been alone.  At least among the men present.

 



"Chewy at 46°F ....."



 

 
After the parade....

Sights and sounds....

We Are Thankful - 11/23/2022

For so many people and things....family, friends, good health, jobs, free time, motorcycles, riding motorcycles....the list does go on.  Modern communication makes it wonderfully easy and convenient to keep in touch...Hungary, the Caribbean, Arizona, Minneapolis, our immediate family current locations.  We've been blessed, lucky and are thankfully, happy.  We truly hope that you can say the same.

The garden has been a lot of work, rewarding work and late-season gratifying for all that it has given back.  Here's a look at our season and hopefully we'll continue to learn to do an even better job.
