[Pix Added] "Honey Do" Work Avoidance Ride Today
« on: October 07, 2015, 06:24:55 AM »

Kathi's out of town for a few days, but, of course, knowing my propensity to ... uhm ... get distracted, left me a list.  :thewife:

That won't do.  :wink:

So, I am getting ready to ride over to Accident, Maryland, this morning.  :bike-037:

What a name for a town, and especially for one for my destination, a motorcycle shop.  Going to check out the Aprilia Superstore, purportedly "the nation's premier Aprilia dealer."  http://apriliasuperstore.com

We shall see.

But it's an important mission that must get done.   :rolleyes:

I am going over to get a fastener.

Don't want to call ahead, as they might not have it in stock, and there would go my excuse for a fine ride.   

And, there's almost no bad way to get there and back.

Calling might also jeopardize breakfast at the School House Kitchen in Old Town.  https://www.facebook.com/School-House-Kitchen-238232342897111/timeline/

Haven't been there before, and, in fact, wasn't aware of it, but can't miss that now.

Ciao ... and chow!

Bill

Ah yes, the run for a nut or screw.  Just make sure not to forget the list, I did once and discovered what happens when the latter works on the former.

Just saying.

Enjoy that ride.

381? Passes? In western Maryland?

The assumption was that, it being such a beautiful day, you'd take the LOOOONG way 'round to the Aprilia shop.

Fay's out today caring for her Mom, so I took the opportunity to get out and ride and run a few errands too ....

Good work Bill.  I have been kind of trying to sand and paint a small 2 square foot window for the last two weeks.  Everytime I try and start I remember I need to go to the paint store and get some thinner.  As luck would have it they only had gallon jugs, which won't fit in the small tailbag, so I end up riding across the county to another store, but now they are closed.  I will probably try tomorrow again.  Any paint stores near you?

Well, I made it back after a grand day on the road.  Only 230 miles, but nearly all were fine ones. 

And, naturally, the fasteners I needed weren't in stock, but c'est la vie ... as you know, that's French for "who cares?"    :laugh:

Yes, Bob, you are on to something.  We could run errands for other Guzzisti, telling Our Dear Leaders that we are just helping fellow motorcyclists in need.   :wink:

And, Charlie, as for the passes being clear, it was surprisingly cold up there.  Mesh was the very wrong choice.  I didn't thaw 'til I came off the mountain at Bloomington.  Brrrrrr.

[Whoa.  On whim, looked up SR 381.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maryland_Route_381

Think John A was pulling legs!  :wink:  I bit. :rolleyes:]

Anyway, here are some pix -- not quite up to Daniel Kalal's level  :rolleyes: -- of the ride.

Looks like you had a great day.  Thanks for the pictures.  Pace yourself with those chores, and stacking that designer firewood.
