Scooter Rally weekend, but I decided to spend it with motorcycles in the mountains.
Beautiful area to ride in and nice bikes. Love that BMW 750 twin. I have the same one but in the factory royal blue. I reckon the Rally can basically keep up on the back roads, eh?

Actually it's Lake Union in Seattle. That's the Space Needle peeking over the bow of the ship.

Thanks K! And yes, don't think I wasn't nervous. I moved very slow

The next day I went out South Jetty Road to the south jetty of the Siuslaw river - where no normal vehicles go Razz emoticon

Leaves were already starting to change in Chicago when I was up there last weekend. So long as I don't mind bundling up a little (and by Chicago standards, it's not bundling up at all), it's always riding season down here, though.

Can be found here: https://paj.otukset.fi/kuvat/Yamaha+BW200/

Bought unseen for pennies as a non-runner with info that something made a nasty sound and oil came out. Turned out to be a broken seeger clip which in turn allowed the kickstart mechanism to contact a running engine. Broke the clutch cover and also cracked the engine case. Also had a intermittent CDI problems so that was also replaced. After rebuild it kept smoking badly and the reason turned out to be wrong oil-rings supplied with brand new Wiseco piston. Got a replacement rings on warranty and now runs well and is mostly used in the winter.

It's a very tiny grain elevator. They are used for long term storage of grain and usually also serve as trans-shipment points between intermodal transport methods. e.g. truck to train, train to ship, etc.

You seem to be having better weather this weekend than we are.

Such great days for taking a ride, I went up to the park I played in as a kid, then to my house from kindergarten to Jr high. So many old memories around here!
Used to be we could cut thru here on our motorbikes to get to the main park.

Your dad built a fine house -- it's got everything one would need. You must have inherited much of your own know-how from him.

Took a quick spin this evening on the back roads in my neighborhood and stopped in front of a neighbor's place, where the nearly-full moon was lurking above the trees. It's almost as round as my headlight.

Is it the 2T or 4T?

I had a Riverside 2T 175 based on the Benelli 125. rebuilt it, took it on the Giro and sold it at the end. it was not a bad bike and the 175 engine has some potential. The later 4T bikes are cool too.

It's a 2T 125. Not very practical, but the idea of a 2T Italian street bike is very tempting.

Went to the local car show today and decided to take the P200E. There was one other Vespa there. A local body shop owner has recreated a collection of all the significant vehicles from American Graffiti, with various degrees of accuracy, including Toad's Vespa.
