Ken let me know that he had gotten tired of sitting around the house recently, and planned a ride to a friend's property near Newberry, FL.

We have been there many times. It makes for a good ride as it is located in a scenic part of the state.

And the accommodations are free.

It is only a 90 mile ride for me, and I arrived at 5:30 after working most of the day.

We went for pizza in Newberry and brought it back to the compound to eat on a picnic table outside.

The next morning was cold, in the 40's early, so we waited until 9:30 and 58F to leave for Suwannee. I had hoped we could have lunch at Salt Creek, but they were only open for dinner.

So Ken found that the Marina had food.

From there we headed back to Newberry, then I pointed Vanessa to home and we had a nice ride back.

It had been too long since the last ride with Ken. I hope we can do it again soon.

Thanks for posting. Looks like a nice time and the snow we had yesterday has melted and it looks promising for a ride on Thursday here. Yesterday took advantage of the lousy weather and did a valve adjustment on my friends Aprilia Atlantic 500. Not as easy to get to as my Vespa's or even the Kymco.

Today is Mother's Day so not going anywhere as it is still cold. But last night around 10pm, I put a pork picnic shoulder on the Big Green Egg around 225 deg for about a 15hr slow cook for pulled pork for Mother's Day! Now to pick a bottle of wine to compliment the pork! Of course I will have an IPA while doing the hard work of pulling and fending off the bark thieves!

Definitely the good life. The ride, the connection with friends, the ever-mysterious landscapes, it's a perfect simple joy to ride a Vespa.
