I have a buddy with a welder will work something ...speaking of which ....just checked the bike as its hot but fine where it is....never think about it here but do in Aus with the KLR...and always hot but more I'm on dirt a lot.
Lovely ride backroads to OH 26 ...was a bit dubious first 20 miles on the north end about road conditions another rider reported - was navigable but not a lot of fun ....
got much better the second part of the ride - then stopped to find a restaurant and got directed along 260 which was really nice.
Now parked along the Ohio river next to a ferry
and getting lunch complete with Hank's Gourmet Root Beer from Philadephia Recipe
A VERY fine burger too.
I think the camera likes the Root Beer best ...
Back at base after a good riding day tho it started a bit late..
zoom zoom helped
...getting hot out...just nudging 83 but fine on the bike. Sunny, some clouds -zilch wind.
My kid would get in SOOO much trouble down here
think PA 144 but just about everywhere - some just begging for more speed than I’m willing to push - almost no gravel - pretty close to zero cars.
You could loop roads in this area from various directions and have a hoot.
Most with excellent pavement - elevation changes and a varierty of corners from fast sweepers to tight and techical
Glad I had the CBF - much lighter and far better brakes than the VSTROM.
Saw some deer - he was a beaut ....wide angle lens sucks ...will ride with the long lens tomorrow. Rare they stop long enough to get a shot at all.
...flock of largish turkeys. I'll get out earlier tomorrow with the longer lens and dawdle along
Might take the bags off tomorrow and push the envelope a bit on 555
hands won’t be as sore as they were this morning
