Since the weather is getting colder, we are taking time when it is nice to ride. We did recently buy some cold weather riding gloves that are quite warm but also thicker and stiffer, so need some breaking in time.

Anyhow, here are some pics from recent rides. I need to get better on my picture taking!

You're photography is great, keep'm coming. Brings back great memories.

You live in a great part of the world for two wheel exploration. For 38 years I lived in the Hudson Valley, Rhinebeck NY area, and would take a annual motorcycle excursion up into VT., and during winters offen skied Vt., mostly at Stowe, Bromley,or Kemo. The Ride up rt 100 was one of my very favorites in the NE. Going up and over Smuggler Notch always made me grin!

Thx for the memories.

I agree with roadscum. Love the covered bridges and all the history of your area. Makes me wish Texas wasn't so "new." Looks like you all are having a great time. Will you continue with the 150's once the twin 250's are acclimated?

Up for discussion. The 150's fit in the back of the truck when we are towing the camper, so may have to but I think Le Wife likes the 250 better.

Now the proposal I am working on is to sell at least one of the 150's, sell the pickup truck and the camper, and buy like a Class C camper and trailer the 250's. The way I see it (notice it is an I not we) is that we can pretty much do everything with the 250's and then if need to rent a car for a day or two. The limitation would be if we had to travel on a major highway for a distance on the 250's.

I like the way you're thinking. Makes sense to me.
