    Who rides motorcycles?

    Mr Google says that is SR 150. Beautiful. I rode from Rock Spring WY to Vernal UT along the Flaming Gorge but didn’t go further west. Lovely ride though a bit windy on the day I traveled.

    Does anyone else hate these bridges?

    Who rides motorcycles?

    Yep. 770 miles (if you include the Skyline Drive which is the same road north of Charlottesville VA) from Cherokee NC to Front Royal in VA with spectacular views, great twisties, and zero commercial vehicles, stop lights, stop signs or commuters. I just finished it today going south to north...

    Who rides motorcycles?

    I've been on the Blue Ridge Parkway for a couple of days now. Wonderful road and gorgeous scenery. Saturday out of Cherokee and around Asheville was a bit crowded but then the road opened up. Today I left Blowing Rock after lunch with friends and had almost no traffic all the way to Roanoke...

    Used price on 1996 Snapper Series 15???

    Photos below. Looks to me to be in good shape. Small seat trim needs to be reglued and I'll try to do that tomorrow. Undoubtedly needs fresh battery and oil/belts.

    Used price on 1996 Snapper Series 15???

    I've never seen the mower but it so happens that I'll be dropping by to see my mother in law this afternoon so I'll check and get a few photos if that would help. It is just dumb luck that I'll be there today as I'm stopping to visit for a day as a break on my West to east cross country...

    Who rides motorcycles?

    After a couple of days transiting the Ozarks (well deserved reputation as motorcycle heaven but tough to take photos in the twisties) I crossed the Mississippi south of Memphis and spent a day exploring cotton country and Blues in Clarksdale MS. Now in Tupelo (Elvis birthplace) and heading to...

    Who rides motorcycles?

    Drove south from Dodge City to Rt 160 and then east. Rt 50 ok but much less traffic on 160. Much prettier landscape once the gentle hills appear and SE Kansas looks almost tropical (not really) compared to western and central Kansas. Beautiful rolling hills and real trees. I think this was...

    Who rides motorcycles?

    Well, anyone who says motorcycling through Kansas is boring has never done it with 20-30mph crosswinds trying to push you into the oncoming traffic. No time to be bored. Like riding an arcade game for hours at a time. Holed up for the night in Dodge City. Played cards with Doc Holliday and am...

    Who rides motorcycles?

    Made it over Independence Pass and Continental Divide yesterday. Beautiful but windy day crossing the Rockies. Headed from Cañon City CO to Dodge City tomorrow via Rt50 and then on to the Ozarks. Managing to stay off major highways. Lots of motorcyclists at least in Colorado.

    Who rides motorcycles?

    I've made it as far as Canon City CO today. I have had many nice rides but nothing better than in eastern Washington. Those rolling grassy hills, gently curved and excellent roads and lack of traffic were wonderful. And, I imagine your riding season is quite long. You're very lucky to live in...

    Beautiful day riding from Bozeman to Jackson via Yellowstone and Grand Teton. Yes there was some snow overnight but roads were dry. Didn't really get to explore Yellowstone but the drive was spectacular. I actually preferred the scenery in Grand Teton at least from the road.
