I was apparantly in the same state of mind as all of you. !50 miles of two lane country roads admiring the fall colors and loving the niner. I would have gone further, but just got too c-c-cold. What a day though--sunny, clear and crisp. Hopefully not the last ride of the year, but one never knows what's coming around the corner, weather-wise. Somehow, the day felt like even more of a gift knowing there may not be many more available this year.
Jerked my back out yesterday evening. Couldn't sleep too well last night. Then mooped around all morning bored to death. Couldn't bend over or straighten out. Finally about 3pm, I got Dee to put my boots on and groaned and whined as I worked my leg over the saddle. All of a sudden, my pain was gone, a grin a foot wide on my face, and 1st gear hang on tight, 2nd gear lean right, boy howdy, I'm riding my HONDA tonight. I felt great till I crawled back off about 5pm.
