Did you ride today

566622 9431
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.

225 miles round trip today including the (new) mandatory stop for BBQ in Lexington, KY.

As a side note, the shirt I'm wearing is a roller derby tournament I officiated in from 2011 - The South Central Playoffs. It was in Kansas City, MO and appropriately called the "Show Me Der-B-Q."

No worries fish & chips at the coast 😋, 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

Riding days are dwindling down for the year. It was chilly & foggy at Devils Tower Wy today. Hey no bugs though!!! Had to pass the time while these beef back ribs are bathing in smoke. The ones on the end are for the dogs.

Kind of . Small problem on this morning's ride. Bike kept running, but I lost turn signals, cruise control., emergency flashers and some other things . We pulled over in Nashua, Iowa at the Casey's . I shut off the bike and then it would not start . I changed the fob battery and that did not help . Next I had to take off a lot of stuff to get to the seat to get to the battery . After I got it all apart my wife noticed the emergency flashers were now working . I then pushed the starter button and it fired right up . Mystery fix because I didn't touch anything. Put the seat back on the bike all the other parts . Got home just fine .
