I followed several trucks on the way to an appointment. More clouds of dust than I would have thought. I'm glad I was not subjecting the bike to that. The snow we got last week evidently gave them a reason to spread another gob of salt on the roads.

I'm glad I took the car. But it was nice out!

Agreed!  Thankfully, we had a fair amount of rain last evening that cleaned up some of the salt on our roads.  But, salt dust or not, riding today was about as good as it gets this time of the year in NE Ohio.  Before leaving, I wiped off the dust on the T 120's wheels from the past few days, and when I got home 80 miles later, they still shined!

ZZ, catch up with you soon!

Yo Art,

Might have been me.  I've been using Middleton Road a lot what with all the construction on SR91 leading into downtown Hudson.  Can't wait for that project to be finished.

Well, today has been a fine day!


I debated on posting this on the how was your day thread, but I figured it would be appropriate here.

Got out the RC field today and maidened the T-28 I bought a while back. Also, to discover if the rain we had cleaned things off since Friday. So, I was not being pelted with salt dust while in the car. Good deal!

Came home, jumped on the bike, and had a very pleasant ride in the country with temps in the mid to upper 60's (F for our celsius friends)

Bob, I hope you had an equally good day.

Time for a beer. :boozing:
