Summer does not suck now
Pop got up and showered. Did my maintenance thang to the Vic. Somewhere around 50 miles later I got to a run for vets families.
The cause was a whole lot better than the organizational skills of the road captain and his blockers, but hey, nobody got hit by a semi so it's all good. Saw some nice country in the foothills and then had a moment of remembrance at a military graveyard. I'm a sucker for paying it forward and back east I kept myself busy with Pat Guard and whatnot and Memorial Day always is good for big runs but out here in Colorado I'm ignorant so I got lucky on this one.
Then, after the run got back to origin I bailed. Up into them thar hills. It is a good thing to have the Rockies for your backyard. I punished the Vic today and it did not flinch. I have yet to crease them footboards and I give it hell today. From high plains all the way up past the snowline I got to finally really solo wind that thing up.
Oh yeah. Stumbled into Blackhawk and I'm saying that no matter how the Megabucks plays out, I already had a run of luck playing three card and did good enough in about an hour to pay for the gas, food, vets donations and fun and still had to detour around to the bank on the way home to sock away a fair chunk.
Old biker nirvhana. A run for a cause, a few hundred miles of twisties in the by gawd Rocky Mountains and I got paid to do it.
Gonna be a good summer.
Here's a few pix

We can't help it
We just keep moving
It's been that way since long ago
Since the stone age chasing the great herds
We mostly go where we have to go
