    Lived in Mansfield for 12 years, move March 2012, enjoyed riding down through Venus, May Pearl, Midlothian, Italy, & so many more. Every small town has a story.

    Just got back from a little early morning ride. Left the house at about 7:00am. Road about 115 miles. Weather is beautiful in south Louisiana this morning.

    We rode the neighborhood and the local high school parking lot, daughter is learning how to ride. She has taken the rider safety course and did very well but wants a little more experience before taking her test. She is doing great and should have no problems.

    A balmy 63 in ol' Virginny today, so I got both bikes out. Took the Missus on a couple of errands (the long way -- who knew it was 9.5 miles to the grocery store that's just 4 blocks away?) and knocked the dust of the Magna in the process. Got home, still geared up, there sits the Scout looking mournful in the stable. Can't have that, now can we? So, saddled up and got a nice 30 mile loop in through the back roads southeast of Manassas. Gorgeous day to be out, and almost gave some dude whiplash as he did the double- take trying to figure out what kinda bike just went by. It was a hoot! Might just make it to March now.

    I don't have my Scout yet, so I took my ST1300 out yesterday. Left from my house outside Knoxville TN, rode through Townsend TN, into the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, over to Hwy 441, up and over Newfound Gap, down into Cherokee NC, around to Fontana Dam, through the Tail of the Dragon/US129 back into TN, across Foothills Parkway, and back home. With stops to relax riverside in the NP, a sandwich break, etc, it was right around 5 hours. It hit 60 degrees at lower elevations (around 1,000' at my house), and never got below 40 degrees at higher elevations (over 5,000' at the gap). Clear skies and warm sun made for a very comfortable ride, but there was still lots of snow and snow melt (water on roads) at higher elevations, and gravel/salt on the roads to be cautious of. I made a small snowman up near where I crossed the Appalachian Trail, then decided to set him on my luggage rack. He made it about 40 miles before breaking, and then the aggressive corners of the Dragon did him in completely. Overall, it was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Too bad it wasn't on an Indian Scout...

    Today was just a short ride around the neighborhood on my old Chief. Because I've been out of town so much for work lately, it hadn't been started in a few weeks, but she still fired on the first (starting) kick like usual.

    I took the high roads today. I went east going through the national forest and the hills and valleys. We are in the last foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and it makes for some great riding. Total miles today was 70. Also dropped in on my old friend Bill who has his own private junkyard. image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    I also just checked in, got in about 100 miles. My face caught a nice size pebble. Lots of grit on the roads.
