    Yippeee!! a Day Off!!

    Worked the 4th of July so I could take the holiday today and get a long weekend. So I got my trusty TW out for some exploring. low 70s and overcast, not a perfect day for a ride, but better than last Sunday's mid 90 degrees ride on the KLR.



    Stopped at the gas station for a fill up of some good, non ethanol gas. I think if the gas station was much further away I would have had to break out the MSR fuel bottle.

    Another cemetery in the middle of nowhere.

    Found this on last Sunday's KLR ride. Not sure if I should venture in there. Did an online search and it's an old truck trail open to the public.
    There was supposed to be an old launch site for hangliders back in the woods and I was going to try and find it.

    Lots of puddles to navigate. They had a hard base in them so the weren't that hard to get through.

    Found the launch pad for the hangliders.

    My TW won't go 75 mph on the highway all day long, but it sure is fun on the backroads and in the woods!

    Finding the old hang glider launch to your death platform is just the kind of exploring we like to do.

    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    Very nice looking ride. No hanglider attached to your TW?
