  • Just a Ride

    Headed out about 11:00 this morning, to check out the bike and see how my highway fuel mileage is. The bike ran great, real happy with the work done and she still pulls 42mpg's. Colour me happy.

    About 160 miles round trip, up the north highway. Just a small part of the ride from here, Sault Ste. Marie to Thunder Bay Ontario, which many have said is one of the nicest ride you can take on two wheels. Prolly the best part of the Lake Superior Circle Tour.


    I though I would post a few pics of the ride, unfortunately the fall colors are starting to fade around here.

    This is one of many spots where it looks like you'll ride off the end of the earth.

    The view from one of many scenic look outs

    Saw this fella hanging out there, all by himself. Got a little concerned, he should be flocked up and flyin' south with his "Herd". I wished him well and hope he finds his way.

    Still some decent colours along the new nice to ride on.

    Saw the sign, but no sign of him.........

    Ya know, just one of those enjoyable, solo rides.........

    Thanks fer lookin'

                          Thanks for the beautiful pix, it should start looking like that down here in about 3-4 weeks. My favorite time of the year to ride.
