I HAVE been out riding. It's been pretty quiet around here (this forum) lately, since Polar Bear, Flint, Bill and I returned from our travels to the BIG sidecar rally this summer. So just to maybe spark some interest, here are a couple of pictures of places I've been in the past couple of weeks.

Less than 20 miles from where Americade takes place is this pretty scenery:


(and once you're here, there's a nice 60 mile ride around that lake)

And a couple of weeks ago I made my annual pilgrimage to Tracy Road in the Adirondacks (oops, that was on a 2 wheeler, not with the sidecar)


Anybody else visiting any pretty places and/or fun roads lately?

Sorry, no pretty pitures here but I AM out riding nearly every day on two or three wheels as I use the bike and sidecar rig for everyday transportation.
If I can't carry it on the bike or sidecar rig I use my 35 year old beater truck.

I haven't been on either the sidecar or bike for a while now Crying or Very sad

Just had my right hip replaced and expect to be back on either 2 or 3 wheels in a couple months Big Grin

( I blame it on all those years kick starting the darn Triumph )

Last weekend Bea and I spent three days playing on all the N.C. roads that are normally ridden with you guys in June. Where the heck were you? Should have been there - bright sun, cool weather and the fall colors were beautiful.

I should have just posted the picture so you didn't have to click on it. I don't post enough to remember how to do these things. Question

153 views in 13 days, 9 posts (a couple of us posted multiple times)

BUT ONLY 5 VOTES ON THE POLL QUESTION Sad Sad

OK, OK - maybe you think riding season is over, so can't be bothered to cast a vote on something as insubstantial as riding your sidecar, or maybe nobody cares about going out riding anymore, or maybe ...whatever Sad Sad

lets hope this level of enthusiasm doesn't carry over into politics...

OK, back home now. I rode the sidecar to the polling place, cast my votes, then went for a few groceries and a short ride before coming home. Temperature is in mid 30's today.

RE: my comment above about staying inside as Sandy went by last week- see my reply to Polar Bear's question on the Week After the Week Before thread.
