Out of the Cocoon
I had an interesting spring ride to Canada in early May, joining over a dozen
Wee-Stroms (old and new), one Vee-Strom, and a Honda St-1300 on the
annual Ontario Spring Ride. Fine ride, fair-to-lousy weather, and a great
lunch with friends old and new. I brought Florida oranges for everybody,
and a few low-priced but worthwhile gadgets from Harbor Freight and
other outlets not represented in Canada. I have done this a few times.
Now I am back in Florida, and I hope to connect with Stromtroopers I know
here and others I have yet to meet. To that end, I wish to ride a couple of
hundred miles on Sunday October 26 2014, and I want some of you to ride
Possible destinations: Okeechobee, the City of Zombies (look for older threads
about this topic in the Florida section); barrier islands on the West Coast;
hilly stuff north of I-4; whatever you might suggest.
I will be on my 2006 Wee-Strom, named Colorado. This fine machine has 82000
miles on the dial, and will reach 100,000 sooner or later. This year
it reached its 39th, 40th, and 41st state. It has been to all Canada's
provinces. If I am industrious in the near future, I will show you a new
$20 windshield; otherwise, you will see the same scarred plastic I can
scarcely see through any more.
I hope for some interest; this section of the site has been too idle.
