Thread: What did you do with your motorcycle today?

    What did you do with your motorcycle today?

    Hello All!

    I thought this might be a fun thread. It would be cool for folks to share stories and pictures from their rides, mods, experiences, or whatever!

    Post away!

    I rode the R80ST to work, and dropped it off at one of the local Airhead “Gurus” for a checkup.
    Next week I’ll ride north to the 49er, then work my way south, heading up as many “dead end” roads into the Sierras as I can manage, and arrive at the Airhead Rendezvous in Sequoia NF the following week.
    Other than the slab to get there and back, it will be one perfect corner after another!
    That’s what I’m hoping for, and judging from experience on roads that I have been on in that area for 50 years, a safe assumption.

    Not today, but last Saturday - our local club had a breakfast ride to a café about 100 miles away from my house. I ended up riding about 300 miles, picking up a few town names for the Grand Codddiwomple contest.

    Took my R80ST for a little ride around the countryside.

    Stopped at Speed's Garage in Philmont to check on my truck, an '07 Tundra in for Bilstein 6112's up front, and saw this beautiful T-Bird.

    We explored some excellent roads in the area west of London, Kentucky. Karla and I are enroute to the Dillard Getaway where we'll be tomorrow afternoon. This trip is a practice run for our retirement at the end of next month. Karla retired in early April and I agreed to stick around for an additional quarter to allow my successor time to get up to speed so my last work date is 30 June.

    As a practice run this has gone well. I especially enjoy the relatively sparse road traffic on the back roads during the week.

    On the fourth day of my current excursion, I packed up my camp after sleeping in the redwoods along CA hwy 36, met a friend for breakfast in Fortuna, and then rode up the Pacific coast to Florence, OR, where I’m camped for the night in a state park. Planning to head for John Day, OR, in the morning. Unfortunatey, my photos are on a real camera, not a phone but here are a couple from several days ago:

    All I did was tighten a tie-down strap.

    I spent the afternoon cleaning several thousand miles of bugs and road grime off of my hack, to start getting it ready for the next trip. Oil change tomorrow.
