2008 Motorcycle Photos
Although I don't really stop riding just because it gets cold. The spring and early summer lends itself much better to motorcycling. That means some gatherings and some work on the bike. Below are some pictures to share this year's motorcycling for me thus far....
The first one, below, is a panorama of 3 seperate shots from our Ride On The Ridge 7. For the life of me, I can not get a bigger thumbnail image to work. Sorry, just trust me. Click on it and check out the full image.
(As ususal, clicking a picture "should" provide a larger image!)
Saturday - ROTR 7 - Group Shot
ROTR7 Riders: These are the fine and fun folks that I get together to ride with every now and then. This time we had folks from Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio, Maryland and New York.
This is a great group of people to spend time with and to ride with!
Regrouping on Highway 8 in Floyd County
We tend to get a bit "strung out" after a while. As the faster riders are at the front of the pack and the slower riders at the back. When the fast guys find a good "wide spot" to regroup at, that is where they stop and let everyone get caught up.
In this photo, I am the last rider in the line. Following Jon, Berto and Craig, Jr.
A Ride On The Ridge First -- A Cattle Drive
Our Ride On The Ridges (or should that be Rides On The Ridge?) began in 2002. In 2004 the group started meeting in the fall as well. So there have been 11 gatherings to date.
This is the first one to cause everyone to stop for a "Cattle Drive". Friday, I'm told, they came around a corner and saw the road blocked and filled with cattle. The group pulled over, shut off their bikes and hoped that noone or nothing would get pushed over. Sorry I missed it....

Drawing my Arc - cut line
Final Cut Line
A Test Fit
I was worried that I had, perhaps, taken off too much material. So, once it was cut, I did a quick clean up of the edge and put it on the bike.
I was pleased with the look!
Time for Paint
After a real good clean up of the cut. I masked off my graphic and painted the inside of the screen a satin black.
Again, I really like the way it looks.
