Lake Elmore

Hannah and I took a short (150 mile) day ride yesterday. Rode through some nice countryside and some pretty rough weather, but a good ride nonetheless.

We stopped at The Elmore Store for a sweet break. Nice place.

First Outing

Well it's been a (seemingly) long time in the works, you might even say years, but it looks like a plan is coming together for another cross country trip. My son Scott and I did the trip when he graduated high school. Now it's Hannah's turn to see what this US of A looks like through a helmet visor.

We found a couple Suzuki twins that had withstood hardship from previous owners, and we rescued them.

Hannah will be riding a 2007 SV650S

I'll be on a 2002 DL1000 V Strom

We took them for our first ride together last night. From our house up through the islands to Rouse's Point, NY. The sun was setting as we got there so we enjoyed some nice mellow light to take some pics with my phone. Rode back a different route past the Missisquoi Wildlife Refuge and down Rt89 for some highway time. A couple roadside repairs/adjustments on the SV made life interesting, but in all it was a very successful first ride.

There will be many more rides before we launch for the second C2C trip.
