Solo Ride - September 1, 2008, 07:23 PM

Today I decided to go out by myself. Sometimes it's good to do this, just you the machine, the elements and the road. What an awesome ride it was.
The weather first of all was like GOD sent: High Pressure dominating, no nimbus/cumulus clouds in the sky, cold front just moved through and not to mention the perfect ambient temperature. It was like a latent event finally coming together for all the right reasons, the holes of the Swiss Cheese had aligned perfectly.

My route was Loudoun CO. Parkway(607), Ryan Rd., Evergreen Mills, on to the 7 which I took down to Tyson's Corner and finally to the Mall. It was my first time there.
To the rider on evergreen mills rd. riding the Blue Buell, good riddins. It was a pleasure riding with you today.

The Mall I must say is massive and boy was there some fine Dime pieces lurking around.

To the girl that complimented me on my jacket, thank you. I should have given you a citation for how gorgeous and curvacious you are.

Before my ride back I stopped at TGIF and got a cold one, then commenced my journey back home. In all it was a nice 4 hour trip.

And to the vehicles which I had to tenaciously pass, get over it, it's a motorcycle......lol

Today I became one with my machine! Has your machine ever talked to you, and have you ever conversated with her and the road.

When you do let me know.....lol

did the solo bit today also. it puts things in perspective for me. glad you had a good one man


When I came to, the general back-alley ambience of the suite was so rotten, so incredibly foul. How long had I been lying there? All these signs of violence. What had happened? There was evidence in this room of excessive consumption of almost every type of drug known to civilized man since 1544 AD. What kind of addict would need all these coconut husks and crushed honeydew rinds? Would the presence of junkies account for all these uneaten french fries? These puddles of glazed ketchup on the bureau? Maybe so. But then why all this booze? And these crude pornographic photos smeared with mustard that had dried to a hard yellow crust? These were not the hoofprints of your average God-fearing junky. It was too savage. Too aggressive.

I'd like to do that sometime but every time I go out by myself, I end up going about fifteen minutes away from home and can't figure out where to go next, so I head back. haha I think next time I'm just gonna take random roads till I feel like coming back. Then take different roads back.

Decent report now that you've fixed it. I think everybody should head out by themselves. I hit 211 for the first time Saturday. It was fun, and as stated, clears the head.

Try this:

http://maps.google.com/

scroll around out west and make yourself a route. Once you have a route (to and from), you can drag it around with the mouse and alter it to go through the curvy roads.

Print it out (I c&p into notepad and edit the directions to make them more concise and readable) and tape them to your tank. Laminate or cover w/ saran wrap if it looks like it is going to rain.

Charting Course.... - September 2, 2008, 12:03 AM

Excellent suggestions and comments..., I usually use MSN's Live Search Maps, chart my course and execute it.

I verily try to commit my route to memory. But if it's a crazy plan of action, I'll print it out; take it with me and execute by lap sessions....lol

Definately going to do the 211 and Skyline Drive one of these days......etc.
