My ride Thursday

Got caught in road grading. Loose gravel, small berm, and drop-off on each side.
1/4 mile of steep down hill. No room to pass the road grader. Had to wait for him to come back up the road, and pass.
I don't know what he was digging up out of that ditch, but it smelled like a barn yard of pigs.



Art display at local salvage yard.


Another road-side display


Remote launching point on the "Pemigewasset" river.

Sender1,
Click on larry31 name and find threads he started. He has many videos, so you can go for a ride vicariously, in his neck of the woods.

I've enjoyed quite a few. Thanks again Larry.

Ride here .......... ?

Thanks guys. Come on up here, and I'll show you some places.

If you got the time, you can check my videos out here... https://www.youtube.com/user/larry3138/videos

There's stuff on there not motorcycle related, but feel free to browse.

BTW: I've been trying to decide if I should post link to my latest video. ( Not quite finished yet.) It's not bike related. It's also quite long. (45 min's) It shows me working on my stone retaining wall with my Kubota.

Image Hosting??

I see Photobucket has struck my pix's.

Any suggestions for a good hosting site? Free of course!

I'm experimenting with "Imgur" hosting.
Try posting this pix...

Seems to work, but image will not show in post. Have to click link to go to Imgur site to see it.

Mine is a 2011 . It looks kind of red in pix, but it's more orange.

Thanks Dan for the link.

Here's my latest showing some of the riding around here. Nothing exciting, but quite relaxing for a Sunday ride.
