2021 CanAm Spyder RT
Discovering a road that is new to me, and fun to ride, is a great part of motorcycling. Its easy to find "new" roads when away from home, but yesterday I found such a road only 30 minutes from where I live and where I thought I had ridden all of the local paved roads. I went for a ride with no destination in mind, other than heading north on the Interstate with the intention of taking an exit that I had not used previously. I didn't have to go far, and I knew from the past that this exit was not into an urban area. I ended up on a nice state road, two lanes, perfectly paved, that meandered through some rolling hills, nice sweepers, and beautiful green countryside. About 30 minutes on this road it led into a familiar road, but then diverted again and for about another 30 minutes where it ended at a small city where one of my favorite restaurants is located. So it was a 90 minute or so ride, followed by a great lunch, followed by a 90 minute ride home on my usual route to and from that small city. What a great way to spend a beautiful summer day on my Goldwing. And now I just might get my wife to ride with me again, at least to see this "new" road, despite her back issues which have kept her off the passenger seat for most of this riding season. I'm old, but life is good.
