    November 9th - Good day for a Ride...


    Woke up saturday morning to a "balmy" 50 degrees. MUST not let this day waste away!

    After a hit from the coffee bong, I pull the cb550 out into the driveway for a pre-flight check.

    Ok .. no worries here, everything looks in good working order.

    2 kicks later and the 550 jumps to life. Not bad for a 27 year old motor. After letting it warm up a bit.. .I head south to the closest open country to me.

    Everything around me is made up of shades of brown/yellow/red. Fall is still in full effect here in Michigan. Zipping along several miles over the limit finds me flowing thru some gentle curves. Oh.. nothing like what you guys have out east...but still enough to feel good about breaking the speed limit.

    The 550 just hums along. Sounding like a sewing machine in the front while howling like a race bike out the back. I love this scoot.

    Heading west on US-12 finds me getting near the Irish Hills area. The roads here are some of the best we have. A quick stop for a beer at a local dive and I'm back on the road heading back east. Sharon Hollow, Pleasent Lake Rd, its all good.



    Nothing major happened while out. Just one VERY relaxing rip on my roads.

    AAHHHHH WES, I feel your thoughts!!!! I took my 1966 Ducati 160 out for a 100 mile ride thru the NH country side. 40mph no brakes, just go!!! It's my favorite time of year to ride. If only I could figure out how to post a picture...
    Speaking of pictures, Why isn't there more pics on the stable page???

    John,
    If you have any pics you need posted just send them to me and I will take care of it. I was curious if you were going to put a pic of your mt125 on the board or add it to your stable area. I need to put some of my bikes on the stable page and get that page updated. I have so many new pics from this last season. JD and I are just trying to figure out what pics are staying here on caferacer.net and what pics will go on the new site. Anyway... John you know lots of race peoples, tell them to send there race bikes in. Team Retro Moto would be a good start for the stables page, maybe I'll see if those guys will send some pics. Bob, are you still around?

    Aaron
