May the Forth

Speeder Bike – Moon of Endor

– the first time I saw this chase scene in the movie theater back in ‘83 I was blown away. You were flung through the forest at breakneck speed as if you were aboard with Luke & Leia.

Early Light

Morning Dust

– tearing off into the high desert trail. There’s nothing like riding under the fresh early morning light. Especially if the destination is some wilderness backwater.

Fuel Stop

Gas Up

– at a fill-up just north of Milwaukee I spotted a pup wandering around the gas station. Looking for the owner I spied a sign on Mart’s window. “I live here. My name is Diesel” when getting a quick coffee I asked the attendant how old the old boy was. “Quite old” came the reply. “And he’s the second Diesel!”

Throttle Grip

WI Route 42

– quality light from the west as the sun sank over the Dairyland. The road ahead always beckons.

Doors of Perception

– an overnight trip to the northern parts of Door County was undertaken. Cool but nice clear light on the way up last evening with a deep blue lake on the right and the occasional sunset illuminated barn. Camped on the beach and returned back along the Green Bay side of the peninsula. A nice 560 mile leg stretch.
