Then I took the clock to Fitzgerald Marine Reserve because the tides were low.

The clock sits at a red light that wasn't calibrated to switch for motorcycles:

Does the clock have a name or is your FJR ticking?

The clock had a nice ride!

Grandiose, the clock is.

So, if you had a replacement clock sitting at home, perfectly synchronized to the bike clock, would the bike clock upon return home be _slightly_ behind in time? Would it be the battery's fault?

Is it a little boy clock or a little girl clock?

Clockberry?
If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.

Cool, this is the first clock ride report I've ever read.   :smiley_thumb:

Nice looking pair.

Is the clock going to be the official STO mascot?  That reminded me of a chilli ride report.  :chili:  Can we get a dancing clock emicon.

So how long did you sit at the light waiting for it to turn green? I mean, you had a clock.

I'm betting your Garmin is not feeling much love right now.

It at least has the correct time.
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

I thought of Him often while doing this report but, then again, it was a 50 mile ride.  A bit long for Bob.

:lol:  a car finally pulled  up behind me after 3 cycles.  I did have to run the red light turning left into the scenic lot at the Devils Slide tunnel.  That shit was never turning green.

Well, from your clock, I can see that you were able to get out for a solid 2 hours.  Well done!   :clap:

Looks a little cooler by the water too.

It was about 3 hours!  The lunch photo was actually taken after lunch.  :D

Much.  Normally the fog burns off a little sooner but it was just starting to lift when I headed inland just after 2pm.

Now that I've seen it, I must admit that you've added a very nice looking clock --
well, you know, nice for a Guzzi-level tech analog clock.

By the way, that lobster roll looks fantastic.  Yum.    :drool:
