…Post COVID-19 Ride. My wife and I tested positive for COVID-19 on April 26. I am happy to report that we are both doing fine! We never had any cough or breathing issues. It was so good to get out today! I hope to get back to more motorcycle riding and photography now that we have recovered. Stay safe and healthy everyone!
And the unusually mild winter is slowly giving way to a mild Spring… he typed with great hope. Mild enough to head to the Marseilles Mill Ruins on my so-fun-to-ride Indian Scout 60!
Perhaps… just perhaps the last motorcycle ride of 2019…? (nope). 😁
- It is wonderful to see corn! We have had rain drowning the midwest this year, so, it is so good to finally see cornfields…. with corn!
- It is wonderful to ride!
- Wind farms are so cool!
The farmers in our area have had a really tough time this spring/summer. We have received unprecedented amounts of rain over the past 4 months! They have not been able to plant, and the yield this year is going to be very light. Normally, these fields are filled with tall corn, and beautiful, deep green, soybean plants. Still, love the beauty of the Midwest, and love riding!
Oil change, check! New (loud) pipes, check! Beautiful day, check! Riding? Absolooooooooootleeee! Headed to Marseilles, IL. This is the Illinois River and the Marseilles Lock and Dam.
Here is a bit of a departure from all the recent black and white posts. Some of you may remember that I had a mishap with my motorcycle and a certain peacock earlier this summer. I am glad to say that the peacock was unharmed, the bike is repaired, and my scrapes healed up nicely, so, I am riding again!
So, I post this with a bit of sadness. A few weeks ago I had a meeting with a peacock. You read that correctly: a peacock. The good news is that no birds were harmed while riding my Scout Sixty. The bad news is that my motorcycle and I had a close encounter with the road of the worst kind. We are both fine and, hopefully, repairs won’t take too long.
