today was a great ride. lots of people occupied by Easter so the roads were pretty empty and a lot of stores were closed so that helped to. Only one thing getting hit in the middle of the neck by a bug hurt good!

I took out the ktm and the lady took her klx. 70° out and sunny. Perfect day to ride about 50 miles. It has been great having my riding buddy back in the saddle. I am lucky to have a fiancee that rides! I am so glad that I bought her that ttr125 for christmas last year.

I actually took a decent ride yesterday with my room mate. About 200 miles round trip. Rode from Phoenix to globe to check out some of the canyons. Gotta say, considering it was mostly highway (65 limit) TW held up awesome!. Weather out here has been awesome since I arrived. 70 at night 80-90 during the day.

Went out with my sister for a last ride. She visited me for the past 6 weeks. We did a last 4 hour tour of the island. Stayed mostly on paved or gravel roads. Did a lot of off-road biking and beach riding in the past weeks. She hates to back to Germany where it's still snowing. No way for her to get her BMW R 1200 GS out of hibernation.

I got my second TW so we could ride together. She really got to love the little rascal and we had an awesome time together. And the TW played a big role!!

Lovely day! Stopped off at a Circle K for a soda and when I got out, my TW wouldn't start.



Hmmm....



Ended up I needed gas. But there was gas in the tank I swear. Makes me wonder if my reserve tube is blocked or something.

My wife and I took our dubs out for a nice country road ride...... Hit the gravel roads now that they have firmed up. Mid 50s, about 25 miles... Dubs are running great. OMM.

We had the nicest Easter I can remember her in Spokane WA. It started warming up early as I worked putting some new bars on the Tdub. I got them set up and played around with it a little but I had to get to work on replacing the leaking shock on my Vstrom. I got that done and decided to take it on an Easter run. I did about 50 miles of rolling country roads with some cool climbs and not too many straights. It was about 70 degrees and a really nice ride.



That bike goes up for sale next week. It is a really nice ride and does everything well but it never really excited me to ride. I actually enjoy the Tdub more

If you're near South Eastern Oklahoma I highly recommend the Choctaw Nation Trail. I tracked a bit of it on Everytrail (iphone app)but it goes much farther than the 8 miles I recorded Saturday afternoon.

Trail head at Talimena State Park.


Planning on making it up there in a few weeks. Planning on taking the TW and the VFR. Lots of great paved and dirt roads in the area. Thanks for the tip.
