    My Ride Today

    Went for a 2 hr. ride today. It was about 55 deg and sunny. We had a lot of rain last week so the woods were full of rivers flowing down the trails and lots of mud so I stayed on seasonal roads. The first few pictures are in Summerhill State Land, NY.

    Here is something you don't see every day! No, I didn't take any pictures of the inhabitants!

    The next few pictures are at Bear Swamp State Land, NY.

    Ended up not too far away from Skaneateles Lake, one of the Fingerlakes.

    Ran across this old mill.

    Nice pics. No riding this weekend for me since I did not have a seat at the MSF course. Luckily my wife kept me real busy with chores!

    Just think, you could have gone with me and avoided the "Honey Do" list. Well, delayed it for a few hours anyhow.

    Oh that is rich! I have very few weekends that I am not on call and when one pops up.............. Well I am sure you know where I am going with this We are going camping at Myers park in Lansing this coming weekend and our camper was in DIRE need of cleaning and general maintenance. Since I will actually be on call over the weekend I needed to make sure everything was in order beforehand. I would have much rather been riding on my days off but hopefully we will have a long summer to ride. On a side note I have 550 miles on the TW now and switched to full synthetic but have not touched the carb at all. Does the air/fuel adjustment help with the stock jets or should I wait until after my 600 mile factory service?

    Is the Empire Haven nudist park transient, or is that a permanent fixture? Do you actually see people streaking around through the woods? Orienteering perhaps? That's awesome. Thanks for the pics!

    Nice green forested ride.

    When you ride near the nudist camp, they don't make you remove your helmet do they? Safety first!
    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    That place has been there for as long as I can remember. From what I have heard, what walks around naked there is not pretty! I've never actually seen anybody nude myself. It's either too cold for nakeditity or it's warm enough but the bugs are out and biting their nether regions!
