Outside that it was GLORIOUS! We hit some of the best roads in 3 states and a couple I haven't been on before. Dodged the rain all the way home and only got rained on for 10 minutes or so... until I was almost home... then the sky opened up and it rained like a bitch just enough to get my legs wet so I could freeze the rest of the way home. Did not even put a dent in my being stoked! It's going to take hours to decompress from today... it was that good.
Out west, they have a lot of free range where the livestock can move about freely. I had one surprise me being near the road out in Cali. Had the wife get off and take her pic. I was hoping she'd get it's proximity to the road, but she got me as I went down the road to turn around so you get a general feel for the area.



I don't expect that kinda thing in the east, but returning home from an event over near the WV border I came around a corner to find a truck stopped in my lane and a cow blocking the other. Not a good feeling. The Vics brakes work well when incentivized.

Finally, one fall while riding in Austria we encountered a herd of these:

Seeing this for this first time will test your riding skillz. Watching men dressed in lederhosen running around after them was enough to make even the most hateful break a smile. Apparently, it's a yearly ritual there before the winter when the herd the cows of the mountains.
