Did you ride today

I thought it would be fun to read about our riding adventures.

I got out today and rode 54 miles on my Yamaha 850XS. The sky was blue and it was a warm 62 degrees afternoon, just right for the first ride of the year. The bike fired right up and ran like a champ no problems after sitting in the garage for 3 months. I buy my gas from a place that has 100% gas, no ethanol. I rode alone as I do most of the time. I have several routes, I call them laps, than I ride. Today's was on the river road run that is nice with a lot of curves and scenic views of the lake. The roads are all two lane and not very much traffic. The posted speed limits are 45 but on my bike 60 feels just right. Some of this is why I love to ride in the country; number of red lights 1, no. of cars I needed to pass 1, cars that passed me 0, cop cars 0, curves in the road many, smiles on my face - all the time. I didn't want to come home but the sun was going down and so was the temperature so I returned to my nest. I can't tell you how great that ride made me feel. Hell, I don't need to , you already know. Get busy riding my brothers and sisters and let's hear about it. Photos would be great too.

Rode across the county for Bomber night a couple of guy's trying to get a Lancaster Bomber in the air again to pay tribute to the ww2 vets, rode thro some excellent country eventually running into more bikes heading the same way and rode in on mass. When they struck those engines up on that plane it was like thunder, good night , good ride and money raised to help get that plane up.

Sometimes it's good to have no destination but ended up at a cafe in a village that bikers use so a good end to the day.

No worries fish & chips at the coast 馃構, a good place to eat in Whitby is the Humble pie&mash shop exactly as it sounds if you've never tried the place worth a go, enjoy the trip mate
