You're a busy man these days Randy. Care to put down a few words?



Could even be a ride report...

Thanks for the pics!

Cheers

Been busy riding over the years, not months, Louis.

The first pic is from my failed attempt to repair an ABS issue on my RT. Please note that there is no hammer in said pic. That's because I get frustrated at times so I had a friend come over to remove all hammers from my garage.

The second set of pics shows my former stable. My beloved RT (still in the garage), my K1 (wish I'd never sold her), and my semi-beloved Ducati 907IE.

Also in this series is the 907 along with a friend's 900SS at the top of Monarch Pass, the last pic was taken on CO Hwy 50 on the way to Monarch Pass.

The third set shows the RT along with a fellow RT rider with Lake Tahoe in the background. Next up is a selfie taken somewhere in northern Nevada en route to a BMW rally in the Sierra Nevada's, a shot of a small pump house on Mosquito Lake which I later found out is aptly named! Those little boogers - mosquito's - damned near carried me off. Next up is a sign near the top of Ebbett's Pass crossing over into California from Nevada.

The fourth series of pics were taken in and around Torrey, Utah, where I attend a rally almost every fall. The very last pic showing the RT was taken in Palo Duro Canyon outside of Amarillo, Texas, on the return leg of a trip I took to Fredericksburg, TX, to visit my sister.

Re: Random Pic of the Day (2)

Thanks Bill! I'll have to check that out sometime. Requires a ~250 mi round trip for me, and I don't get much chance to do that anymore. Fingers crossed I can hit it sometime this summer.

First ride on the RR Tuesday - first time putting the GoPro on the tail section. My buddy passed me a tad close coming out of a left hander.

Bruce, unless you've drastically changed since the last time I saw you one thing you don't have to be insecure about is being too heavy. Evidently getting the last word burns a lot of calories... (Borrowing from Louis) Bwaaaaahaaaaahaaa!

Depends where you go and what time. I usually leave home around 8-9pm. So I miss the animals moving around on dusk.
But the ride I am doing, is suburbs first (no critters) and then up and down the old pacific hwy from berowra to Kariong. This road is mostly windy tight corners following the side of a mountain with the river down the bottom, and freeway on the high side. It's very rare to see any critters along here.
Riding at night is awesome! There is almost nobody on this road, you really get to focus on the road ahead without any distractions. I got some driving lights on the bike now that make a huge difference to how far I can see into the corners. My yellow lens driving prescription glasses should be ready next week too, so I'm looking forward the enhanced visibility that should give me, particularly when there is a little fog. I usually treat these night rides as a riding lesson, this time I stayed in 4th gear and didn't touch the brakes, and tryed the 2 person ESA settings with Normal setting. For the tighter stuff down to Mooney Mooney Creek and back up over the freeway I used 3rd gear no brakes. Focusing on throttle control too. Lots of fun!!!

Here is a map of the ride, you get the general idea, unfortunately the road is mostly covered by the freeway green lines, that follow closely.
You get the idea anyway.

Worked on trailer/bikes/yard this weekend and still got out for nice rides on both the GS and the Giant Anthem. Realized I have a lot of two wheelers.

Re: Random Pic of the Day (2)

Last weekend very rare pic of me in front of this rider(Aaron)he is one of the fastest riders at the events I go to. The photographer captured the pic I'm sure a millisecond before Aaron passed me.

It's "the instant that pic" was taken that counts!

That snapshot shows you in front and it's a keeper!

Frame it!

I like your thinking - the pic shows me in front - even if for only a few seconds.

That's the beauty of photography.

Walking in the North End in Boston yesterday I spotted this rider. I had an instant flash forward moment - that just might be me one of these days.

KTM Ride to Lontom Pass.

I had to ride the KTM 1000 km to get its first service done. We chose Longtom Pass because it has many turn and height changes and is a great view. The Pass is named after a French Cannon bought by the Boer Forces in the Anglo Boer War and was used in several fights against the British Occupation forces at the time.



Here it is in the mountains in Longtom Pass between Lydenburg and Sabie.



At the Longtom gun with my friends new 1600 GT who was also on a run in.
