Anyone else get out today? (31 Mar 09) - March 31, 2009, 10:44 PM

Went for a little ride this afternoon after getting the fiancee's bike new oil and inspection. Went about 100 miles through Loudoun/Faquier Co. Found some nice roads, by myself most of the time. Surprisingly not too many other bikes out. Saw a couple on 50, but that was about it. Weather was great. Temp was perfect for my jacket without the liner. Found a couple spots with sand still in the corners, but it wasn't too bad. My approximate route

I mainly wanted to get out to test my camera set up to see what I need to tweak before my trip to San Diego in June. Camera worked well, just need to maybe find one that has a time lapse feature so I can set it to take a picture every so often.

Anyway, some of the pictures:






And a video (there's a lot of wind noise however):

Looks like rain tomorrow, but nice on Thurs. I plan on wiring in a cruise control tomorrow and go out for a ride on Thurs. If you're interested in heading out somewhere I'd probably be game. My pace 10-15 above posted limits, a little less on roads I'm not familiar with.

The camera is a Canon PowerShot A80...it's my sisters old camera. The pictures are nice, video was pretty good. It's just difficult to take a picture while riding. Need to plan ahead too much.

Some friends and I went out through Olney, all the way up to I70 from Rockville. Went up 28 to 97 (Georgia Ave). It was a pretty fun ride.

I got out a bit after work, but some bitches in a Saturn ruined my mood, so my trip was short-lived. NASTY, what's your bike look like? I've got to have seen you by now.

I swear I thought I saw a connie out there. Did you happen to get suck behind a white suv? I was out that way and I saw only two bikes. One looked to be a zx14 with 2up and what I thought was a concours.

Yep. Just need to get some tires, and install my cruise control and it'll be all set.

You live up on Shookstown, right? Thought I remembered that from another thread, but sorry if I'm wrong. Is your color scheme the same as the stock pic on your MySpace? I'll be looking for you this season.
