Fly and Ride to Georgia and Home

I was finally able to make it down to Georgia to pick up my '97SE. Had already owned it for 6 weeks. Just couldn't get off work earlier to go get it. Flew down and drove it back. Cost me less than $500 in total. Don't think I could have had it shipped for that. Plus I would have missed all the great scenery.

 

Here's a few pics of the ride home:

And, yes, I entered one in the Photo Contest. If it doesn't win I think I'll make my own Goldwing calendar. Or get my kids to make me one for Xmas. That would be something I could really use. This weekend to the Black Hills..... this weekend to Minnneapolis ..... this week to British Columbia....this month to Arizona...

That Travelcade seat is amazing. And I discovered that if I wear spandex shorts under the jeans there is no chafing which is often half the problem on long rides. Put together four 600 mile days and felt great. Hardly even used the highway pegs.

Heard that the biking compression shorts work wonders.. evidently I can take it on good faith from your personnel experience.. Thanks will consider getting some..

Tell me that pic in your avatar isn't outside your window. And to think I've thought living in Alberta nearer the mountains might not be so bad. Sunny and 10 C out here on the prairies today. Just heading out for a ride.

 

Observant to catch that Ham radio handle but, alas, not my thing. My grandfather used to be into it. It's a PlautDeutsch (old german/dutch dialect) thing that means "We drive!".

And that's just what I've been doing since I picked it up. Between work and some home renos I've been doing I've still managed to pour on over 6000 miles Since I picked it up in mid-September.:dance:

Yes that is my driveway but the pic was taken in March 2009. Today it was +9, clear, no snow on the ground and a Chinook wind blowing.

 

I lived in The Peg for 38 years. I think I have grown soft and could not survive a winter there. This part of Alberta has a mild winter.

Lived in the Peg for 38 years? You wouldn't be related to Rick and Garry, would you?
