Did she leak?

Not as of last night when it was removed. We'll check this morning.

Working the evening shift today, so gave the sons the morning off of Covad homeschooling and spent an hour or so blasting around on the bikes. THe oldest moped is raping greatttt since the big carb and expansion chamber. Youngest is getting much better at spinning gravel at me on his chappy 80. Me just having fun with them on the ct110. Yep three bikes rippin up the streets and back roads (topping out at about 30 mph).  8)

Rode across town to my gal's house and back after dinner.  She wanted to get out for a sample ride to see if she's recovered sufficiently to do some pillioning this fall, so we did a couple miles around the neighborhood getting dinner supplies right at dusk.

All went well except for her telling me after the ride that she saw "That big antlered buck that lives in Bonnie's backyard" on the way back.  I didn't see the deer, but I know from prior views that he's a BIG pointy guy.  Not good when your pillion sees the deer.  She's taller than me, but not see over my head whilst on the bike taller.

I do have to say that the 'town' deer are almost road savvy.
Call me Mel. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me at home, I thought I would ride about a little and see the other parts of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen and regulating the circulation.

Got out yesterday:

The day before, I found that all the small turkeys were taken.  So I had to get a larger roasting pan for the 17 pounder that's feeding only four people this year.


I expect it will feed us through New Year's.

Well that, and now you can carry take-out pizza.   :thumbsup:

No pizza for a while, while we work through this turkey.  Unless my son makes pizza from scratch (he's pretty good) in service of using up the turkey.

I expect to get out on the bike some this week.  We'll have a few sunny days with highs in the mid 50s per the forecast and my gal wants some pillion time.  Probably just some exploring of New melvilleville.

THe boys and I spent about an hour and a half yesterday on the put-puts, cruzin the hamlet. We have been exploring the deer runs, and back trails a bit more. I am sure we will be doing the same today  ;D.

Side note: I figured the locals might not be too keen on our escapades, nope not the case. Was at the post office gettin the mail, woman I do not know remarked to me that my sons looked sooo happy when we went by her house. I guess we are the "minibike house"

I got out yesterday afternoon for a local bimble with my gal.  She wanted to show me this:

https://www.oregonlive.com/front-porch/2018/06/circle_of_teran_trust_ashland.html

She useta go there when the OG owners/builders were there.  Unfortunately, it's a couple miles past a gate on a private road these days.

We then 'splored a bit and ran up a canyon road until it turned to dirt.  These rides include lotsa pointing at stuff.  Alpacas, interesting trees, views, #vanlife vintage intercity buses, hippie cabins, sheep, and so forth.  She sees a lot back there.  And I can tell when she's excited by what she sees.

Nice!  That's been the case for me just outta town and up the hill for about the last six weeks. 

The road department here sands the shit out of the road so the twisties up to the snow are no fun whatsoever, even after the lower elevation snow has melted.

Looks like a bit cold, and crisp.
