I took the 530 (er 570) out for the afternoon and did a mix of back roads and dirt roads. The leg felt surprisingly normal going from sitting to standing and I wasn't favoring it while standing. Good day on the bike. Time to kick it up a notch and do an all-day dual sport riding down into WV and back.

About 250 butt-conditioning shakedown miles yesterday. 

Stopped for lunch at the Erie Hotel

In honor of the 50th, I broke a long-standing convention and drank a Woodstock IPA.
The burgers at this place are great.  Here is your obligatory food photo.  We ate everything not shown.

The bar is a real throwback to the day's of steam power.
There are no STO'ners at the bar, just in case you were wondering.

Destination was that short stretch of twistie-bliss known as Hawk's Nest, although it resembled PoPo Perch.
However, long stretches of the roads there and back were virtually devoid of traffic. 
And unlike much of PA, road surfaces were clean in good condition.  Awesome cruising.

I love the way my Versys handles :inlove:

Rode my Tuono for the first time in over 2 years today. Tags are expired so it was a short jaunt up and down the road I live on to be sure everything worked as expected. It does. Damn I forgot how fast that thing is. Tags tomorrow and we'll be riding this week.

Yep. Did about 150 kms to get some stainless bolts to attach the GPS and the Stebel to the Biffer. Then to a new Honda dealer to order a neutral switch. They had a Tracer GT on the showroom floor. Man that thing looks sweet.
My GPS just told me to turn left, then turn left, then turn left, then turn left.
So if I go too far left do I end up right?

About 60 miles r/t to Martins Classic Ride-In

 We un-classics parked in the lower lot.  Larger turn-out than I expected considering how overcast it was.

Most unusual bike with HD logo on the left sidecase.  I don't know if Harley actually made a big single, or if this was a one-off custom.

It’s a Harley Davidson Sprint SX350 from what I can tell.

Pipe of the right side looks like it was taken off a 70s Yamaha dual-sport.

That bike looks like a trials bike with a different seat.


I totally forgot about the ride in yesterday. Thanks for taking some pictures.

Oh, I’m thinking there were many trials riding it, but it was no trials bike.

Oh yeah , it was beautiful out. Did a loop in Pa,saw a ton of Amish buggy's and road some freshly paved roads north and a bit east of me. Very satisfying way to scuff in the new PR4's. 8)

I rode to the post office. I figure I should finish out office hours completing this contract, and looking for a new day job. :\

A quick 50 miles today in 37F sunny weather.  Filled the tank and added stabilizer for the winter.

Yep. From the barn into the trailer for a distance of at least 250’. That’s it for 2019.
My GPS just told me to turn left, then turn left, then turn left, then turn left.

I got out for the afternoon today (Sunday). Rode the WV panhandle then back north to WashPa and home. 230 miles. Nice enough day with plenty of sun and low 50s. I'll take it. Got home in seriously fading daylight, so I didn't leave any miles on the table as it were.

I sandbagged over the weekend but got out for a 100 miles today. Bounced around northern Lancaster county and southern Berks county.

It was a blast!
