    B29

    Not a big adventure ride but still a ride, I rode over to Ewing Airport to see a B29 from WW2
    It was the type of plane that released the 2 Atomic Bombs on Japan to shorten the War .

    The plane was amazing. Perfect to every detail,loaded with 500lb bombs.
    10 dollars to walk through and 1500 to get a flight. I forgot my wallet so I just did th 10 dollar walk through.Talking to people in the long line, a realized the know it all pilot next to me didn't know nearly as much as I did about the plane. And the mom taking her 16 year old son to see the plane was a really cool person. She spoke to her kid about the plane asking smart questions and never embarrassed the kid as loving mothers can do.

    The TW is a tough little machine. My 87 is old and ugly but I think I have more fun on it as if I spent thousands more on a Tenere

    I rode though the Pine Barrons on a lot of roads I was unfamiliar with. So I spent most of my time lost and I didn't care. I racked up 180 miles and had a great time. I changed gearing to 15/44 and I'm happy with it for road riding. Sure could use another 100 cc for roads like Rt195. 20190622_131117.jpg
    I was glad I went. I wish I had someone close to ride thier tw with me on roads they don't belong20190622_120443.jpg

    Good ol' Fifi. The effort the Confederate Air Force has done and keeps on doing to keep her flying is amazing. Oops, not PC.....I mean the Commemorative Air Force.
