Default Cow!!!!

Went for a little ride with Squatch today (588 miles according to google maps). Somewhere in the vicinity of Dunmore, WV I see something black move toward the road. My first thought? Someone's big witch or other Halloween decoration blowing in the wind, but we come over the rise and IT'S A COW standing in my lane. That was a first for me...

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.

Yes, it got out of the way... Poor thing was scared of the yellow motorcycle...

The leaves are GONE in some places. The fall colors are over for the most part... but we weren't sight-seeing, if you catch my drift.

Holy Cow!

New power make for a great machine, open the taps and mOOve forward. Much more power but still not enough to keep up with your steed.

I thought you were going to heard the cow up the road to the next pasture.... ole Bessie was not too happy with the Angry 1.

That was probably the best ride we have done... Too bad the rest of the guys missed it.

Actually, we didn't have any BBQ... I had the Fish & Chips in Monterey, VA...

This is a ride we will do again. It would be a great spring opener next season.
