Had a great ride last Saturday. Just took my usual 1-1/2 hour loop ride from home, along suburban / country roads in Shelby County, Alabama. Temperatures in the mid 40's, baby blue sky with just a few wisps of alto cirrus clouds. The occasional smell of wood smoke and pine trees. The dense cold air and 93 octane gas made the most out of my 150cc's of displacement. Even the few traffic lights were with me on this ride. Makes me remember my 20+ years of cycling back in the 70's and 80's when traffic seemed lighter and I was young enough to recover from long rides (now a days, forget it!). Glad to be back on the road again!

Glad you had a great ride and welcome to MV. However, ride reports are incomplete without at least one photo. Merry Christmas.

I knew I needed a photo, but just didn't want to stop for a selfie.

We'll forgive you this one.

Sounds like a great day.

No need for a selfie.

When you ride a Vespa, the photos are usually of the Vespa.

Other than the Show Us You thread, nobody wants to see one of us.

Hey Karl, welcome to MV. I have fond memories of Alabaster from my days at a metal shop in the early 70's. I lived in Vestavia at the time, and had a summer job at RJ Dick. Enjoy riding during the mild winter.
