Not showing off my bike, just my ride.

Last week I took my NX out for one of my favorite rides. It goes through a flood control area. On one end it has OHRV trails. It traverses an old road that used to go through a part of my hometown. Back in 1936 there was a flood that wiped out a major part of that town. In the late 50s they moved the entire town up to higher ground, and built a flood control dam. Over the years, the area has grown up and wiped out most traces of the original house sites. Currently its used for fishing, and at one end, for the OHRV trails.
My favorite part is the ride shown in this video.
Enjoy. http://youtu.be/PnOh51Nf90c

Thank you, Larry. Tho I will never to do my own ride thru there, thanks to you I feel as tho I have been there. You could not have selected a better musical background - even had me singing harmony along with "Hey, it's good to be back home again"! It also put me into search, where I picked up more of the history....

Again, Thank you very much....

Thank You

You're welcome Jim.

I do hope you will get an opportunity to see some of our Northern scenery. Some of our abandoned roads are ripe with history. Old cellar holes, and farm sites, that used to be fields, and are now wood lots. And of course, Stone Walls in the middle of large sections of forest.

On a vacation, a few years ago, we traveled the Sky Line Dr. and Blue Ridge Pkway.
We explored a number of side trips, and back roads, as time permitted. On our way back to New Hampshire, we took as many side roads as we could. About 1 times as long to get back, but worth every minute.
