I got her running pretty good but the clutch needs adjusting bad. I decided to go on an adventure today. I took the P up to Joe Joe's for a pizza and sub run, round trip about 25 miles. The adventure part of this ride if I would make it, it did! Well that's a start.

What an exciting weekend we had. Bob and Cathy rode out from Chicago to Philly for their nephew's wedding and they swung south for a quick visit at Casa De Redneck. They didn't even get their helmets off before I handed them a cold beer. Traveling around Philly, Baltimore, DC can be more than a challenge. After they cleaned up we all settled in for a nice supper.


I was poking around in the garage looking at their rigs. I have never seen a Silver Wing up close and wow, it's a big scoot! Cathy's steed standing tall.


Look at her set! I tips me lid it Bob and Cathy for the technology that their fingertips while on the road.


We had a good breakfast and Cathy took a terrible pic of me rustling up some grub for everyone.

The route we planned for the day was 522 to 33 west, hang a right on Skyline Drive and head north to Front Royal. Grab a quick bite to eat and then double back on 340 to 221 through the Shenandoah Nat'l Forest, shoot back down 522 to Lake Anna. Skyline Drive has a 35 mph speed limit so traveling along there and stopping at overlooks was the goal. We had the most perfect weather for riding. As in the best day weather wise this year! Woohoo!


The first stop.


We met these two gents from NY that were enjoying the day as well.


Their choice of rides.

So we settled in for a nice chicken alfredo supper and watched Evel Live to see Travis make a few jumps.


And they're off to Chi-town and hopefully the roads I put them on will be rewarding on their way home.


Life is short, enjoy the ride.

Eric and Lisa,

Bob an I had a wonderful time at your place riding, weather, conversation, food, bed a d beer of course the whole short stay was excellent.  Thanks, again for your gracious southern hospitality. 
Was a nice break from all the heat we endured the week prior to the wedding.

 We got home safe yesterday.  We will take my Swing in and have the steering bearings replaced in the next couple of days.

I will when I catch my breath.  Been at the hospital with Bob’s Mom all day.  Got home at 8:30. She was transferred to a Rehab Senior Care facility late this afternoon.  Will see each her tomorrow also. 

Since Mom is doing better we will be going to the BMW Rally Friday and Saturday.  We will be driving and staying at a motel.  Originally we were going for four days and camping. plans change.  I will try and post something soon.  Wonderful wonderful road!
