Earth Day Ride

We celebrated Earth Day by taking a ride through beautiful southern Indiana today. First time out on the FJR 2up this year, in fact we haven't been on it together since our Michigan trip last Labor Day. Gin usually likes to ride on her own but was happy to lay back and be a passenger today.

Headed south to Bloomington and had lunch, then over to Nashville and back to Indy, about 150 miles. Could tell a difference in the folliage since last Thursday's ride down that way on our Hornets, everything is almost fully leafed out now, just a few sparse hold outs.

Enjoyed riding through Brown County State Park, one of the more scenic places around these parts. Gave me the urge to get a new mountain bike, looked like a blast riding the singletrack trails through the wooded ravines!





Didn't take many pics today, just soaked up the sights and country roads. Just cause I think it's funny, here's a really dorky posed timer shot of us. Gin's gonna be pretty happy I posted this one I'm sure.



Happy Earth Day, hope you all had a good one as well!

Your "really dorky posed timer shot" is easily the most valuable of the bunch....but you knew that.

Yeah, I actually like it, Gin thinks she has a goofy look on her face and never likes how she looks in full gear.

Your gear selection is completely inadequate and your form is horrible. You need to hang off a bit more.

At least your passenger is properly outfitted.

We're headed to the Earth Day Indiana celebration downtown at White River State Park today, kind of a wet spring day but guess that's appropriate for a green event.

As it turned out I had an earth day ride as well. Heidi (Nemo) dropped by on her way back from Goleta to San Francisco and along with lots of conversation and checking out my bars we went on a 55 mile loop up Foxen Canyon road to Tepusquet road, a marvelous rural twisty going through the foothills to the East of S.M., to the 166 and back to my place in Santa Maria.

Due to a semi botched knee surgery more than a year ago I haven't been riding much and this was a great way to tell myself I wasn't going to let it limit me any more.

Many thanks to Heidi for the nudge and wonderful visit, and to Honda for making a motorcycle that essentially sat for close to a year and took all of a second to light off.

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.
