We had three beautiful days in a row here, and I managed to get in a ride on each and every one of 'em.
Friday I rode up to the local ham radio repeater site to help with some adjustments on the repeater. Not a long ride, but a nice one.
Saturday, I met up with my friend Steve and rode out to the Tractor and Engine show out in Bangor Pa, near where Mike721 and Candy used to live. It was busy there with all kinds of machinery on display, a tractor pull that was active all morning, and a big flea market with tons of tools, parts and junk. It was a perfect day for it, a little chilly when we left in the morning but it warmed up to about 72 by afternoon.
And today, Sunday, there was a car show at a car dealer not too far from here. Great turnout. All kinds of muscle cars, hot rods, exotics and a few that were just mind boggling. How about a '65 Chevy Nova, bought new in 65 by the man who still owns it 67 years later!! One owner in all that time!
Or a '60 Corvette, all original unrestored that still looks like the day it rolled off the showroom floor!!!
As a diehard British sports car nut, my favorite was a white MGB roadster that looked completely stock on the outside, but had a supercharged Mazda Miata engine under the hood! That thing must fly!
But the kicker was, I had parked my red '99 Goldwing among the cars on display. The bike seemed to draw almost as much attention as some of the cars! I spent quite a bit of time answering questions about it to people who were amazed at it's excellent condition after 23 years and 115,000 miles!!! Fun stuff!
Put on a little over 200 miles for the weekend. Not a lot but quality riding time.
It was a GOOD three days!
