I am back home, and on my desktop computer. I have also eaten a nicely grilled steak, grilled potatoes, and steamed broccoli and mushrooms. I have even treated myself to a glass of merlot wine.........okay, two glasses of merlot wine. I also ate the new, State of Maine "approved" dessert; a "Whoppie Pie".
When the three of us woke up this morning, it was quite "frosty" outside!
The above images are very reminiscent of last November's photos!!! There was frost on my bike, and frost in the road, and I went down!
We wisely waited a bit for the sun to come up a little farther before we headed out to Lino's for breakfast.
A very special person has been very generous to me and has "donated" a VERY nice 15 megapixel camera to my "cause". Today was the first time that I was able to give the "beast" a workout. The rest of the photos in this thread come from this new camera. I have a lot of learning to do as to how to use it(!), and how to edit the huge data files. As to using it, I jumped right in with what I have taught myself with my old camera!
Here are a few shots of tmcgee just ahead of me and, Scud in front of him.

We ate breakfast this morning at "Lino's" in Sanbornville, NH.
I will post my route at a later date, (Roughly, Rt 117, Rt 133, Rt 156, Rt 140, Rt 43), through Western Maine, but what follows, in chronological order, are some random shots that I took with my new camera. Some of them are my usual "on the fly" shots from the bike. Some of them, I actually stopped, got off of my bike, and attempted to take a photograph. That's unheard of in the history of my trips!!!
This area is a great place for working on your motorcycle. The sign lets you know that this is a "cow area". There are plenty of cow choices to choose from to lean your bike up against to say, install a centerstand.
My obligatory "over the shoulder" shot.
Getting close to home.
My obligatory, "trip end" shot of the ocean around Thompson Island as I come on to Mount Desert Island.
