There’s nothing like the architecture of mighty trees overhead. Natures cathedral.

Country Lane

Autumnal Avenue

– I had to go and visit a new project site today. So I took the Tiger for a spin up Sheridan Road along the Lake. Turning off a small lane took me through a quiet corner of the northern suburbs in true rustic fashion. The overcast sky and splash of rain only enhanced the turning colors.

– with over a year waiting for its eventual release; the latest Jane’s Bond outing is all you could want in a 160-odd minute action movie.

– behind a dirt bike owner on Lake Shore Drive. Hopefully it came home muddy.

Gentle Persuasion

Alive!

A new battery, ticked carbs, hefty kick and she started right up. Settled into gentle burble ready for the off. Want to check fluids, cables and tires. Then an autumnal ride should be on the cards.
