Two wheels is enough.
A great few hours of riding today. Perfect riding, little traffic...life should always be like this;
A biker on the bridge recognized the Scrambler and gave a big thumbs up.
Slipped down to Woodbury for a V8. Talked another biker, Terry, who had been riding his bicycle for a year because him KTM was down for expensive repair. People tend to love talking motorcycles.
Caught 269 off 231, down to Sherwood TN
Came back through Monteagle and down the mountain on 41.
Nice day of riding.
A great day. Mild temps. No heat required. Hard to beat.
Nice day head out to Fall Creek Falls with Uncle Phil. That means riding at double time. Saw 95 once. The Scrambler is solid. I think you could take it to the rev limiter with no twitching. Once above 40mph not much need to shift...just twist the throttle.
Too cold to ride, so may as well install...
Doesn't look as bad as I thought it would. Sort of post apocalyptic rat bike.
Two wonderful January days...on a weekend! Things were still a bit wet and muddy. It also ways very windy. Great fun nevertheless.
Well, there hasn't been extended bad weather, but it is mid-January now and riding time is limited. Today, I just backed the Scrambler out of the garage and ran it long enough to heat up and then "rode" it back into the garage.
It was good just to hear it run.
Retired after May, so the whole summer is opening up.
When riding with UP, usually there is food but very few photo ops. Speed limits are also mostly for reference only. A great day of riding.
Turned out to be a last minute thing. The weather was cool and cloudy and I took the fastest way. Still, some nice roads, and CycleMo's is a nice, unique museum.
Again, I thought the rain would hold off enough to get to Red Boiling Springs. But, not to be. I did get an hour in the morning which was mostly rain free and ran a few close roads. Heated gear is wonderful stuff. The temp was right at 60°, and I was warmer than when I was sitting around the house later.
The Scrambler: runs great no matter what. Its a little balky when cold but it warms up quickly. Simply a pleasure to ride. I think the suspension has softened up a bit and it gobbles up any kind of surface.
