Living for Liz ride

We had a local Lung Cancer fund raiser Saturday. About 100
bikers showed up and had a nice time. Weather was perfect
and we rode about 160 miles, stopping halfway at McCormick's
Bar and Grill in Rolling Ground, WI for lunch.

My V-Strom!

The Sponsor of the event, Rod's Ride-On PowerSports.

From "The Imitation of Christ" by Thomas A. Kempis:

"MY CHILD, I will teach you now the way of peace and true liberty.

Seek, child, to do the will of others rather than your own.

Always choose to have less rather than more.

Look always for the last place and seek to be beneath all others.

Always wish and pray that the will of God be fully carried out in you.

Behold, such will enter into the realm of peace and rest."

Sunset ride

Took a little sunset ride around the area. I crawled all around this bridge
looking for a few good shots.

Found this on a website:

Sounds a lot like the converstaion I had with a Customer Service guy a wile ago....

I like the part about "Go smoothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon".
Kinda like that old poem, the Jabberwocky:



’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
“Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!”
He took his vorpal sword in hand;
Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree
And stood awhile in thought.
And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!
One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.
“And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
He chortled in his joy.
’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

Mural ride

Went out for a ride Sunday with my son. He was riding his
new Suzuki 250. Pretty nice looking machine.

Took Hwy 35 south out of LaCrosse Wisconsin and ended up
on several gravel back roads. While running through DeSoto
Wisconsin I saw a bunch of murals painted on a cement wall.
Just had to stop and get the Nikon out!

My son Jon!

And his new Suzuki 250
