Romp in the boonies!

Had to get out of the house. Took a little romp around the
back roads. Think I ended up on Houston County 26 and 8.
82° and partly cloudy. Perfect. Hit some gravel and dirt,
came close to some Pheasants and deer, missed 'em though.

Pavement ends, it said....
Road narrows, it said....
No spraying, it said... Wait, what?

Defective year.

This past year is defective. I'm returning it to the store....
 
Sad to say, my Grand Daughter Scarlett passed away Friday.
She developed a blood infection and there was nothing they
could do.
 
Ride on Scarlett!!!
 
My favorite picture of her:
 
 
 
 
At least it's Spring. 60° and sunny today.
 
 
Been looking at getting a smaller camera for motorcycle trips.
Finally decided on it, a Sony RX100M4. Does almost as good
of a job as the big honkin' DSLR, but fits in my jacket pocket.
20 megapixels and weighs about 10 ounces. That'll sure be better
than a sidecase full of gear!

Not cheap; cost the same as my Nikon DSLR ($1000) but worth it.

Spring ride

Got the V-Strom out for a nice long cleansing ride today.
Cleared out the old gas I put in when I stored her away in
the Fall. Ran the tank down well past the reserve point,
over 250 miles, then filled up with fresh. I still had around a
gallon left too. This beast has some amazing range!
Calculated to around 60 MPG.
 
 
And 67 degrees too!!!
 
 
 
It's a 5.3 gallon tank. Guess I could
have gone another 60 miles!
