Waters Edge

Lake Geneva

– splendid ride into Wisconsin for a lap around this resort ringed weekend destination. A delicious cup o’joe was enjoyed at Steamers in Williams Bay. Lots of boats on the water and hoards of ice cream licking visitors in Geneva town. A few leaves on the odd maple we’re turning.

Red Molly

My hats off to you!

– nothing like the thunderous roar of the Vincent Twin. Not even the cacophony of an HD comes near. Pure engineering.

Evening Ride

Dusk

– very nice temperatures as we rode up a fairly quiet Sheridan Road to Lake Bluff. A waxing crescent moon hung over the western horizon. A hint of earth glow countered with a bright Venus.
