Greenery

Under the Hawthorn

– a quick pit stop in a Forest Preserve. The woodland had been cleared of its understory so good filtered views through the dappled shade from the canopy was enjoyed.

Leafy Lane

Tunnel of Trees

– temperatures in the 70’s and a light breeze off the Lake gave us a splendid ride through Lake County. A couple of unexplored roads that led back to bucolic farm scenes gave us a delightful few miles of riding.

White barn and verdant pasture.

It’s always so special when you find these compositions through leafy frames to elegant farmsteads.

Enjoying the road to ourselves

a la mode

Slice of Pie

– Parked in front of a swathe of matching day lilies at a suburban Bakers Square , this golden hued motorbike, with its crate carrier, is someones idea of perfect summer evening transport.

Red Arrow Highway

Along the Lake

– clear and cool air followed us along the shore to Michigan. Fairly quiet roads through Lansing, Gary, New Buffalo. Brunch of pancakes, eggs ‘n’ sausage washed down with delicious coffee at Three Oaks.

The Sun

– once upon a time the third page of the biggest selling tabloid in the UK was a daily topless exposure. Samantha Fox was one of the most prominent in the eighties. Until she started a singing career…

Snow Tiger

Mountain Valley

– a perfect place for the elusive alpine feline bike. Wide glacial alluvial plains between craggy snow class spires. What a journey that would be.

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.

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.

Get your kicks…

Rust on Route 66

– we’re now traveling through Missouri along the old cross country driving road. Occasionally an old American car peeps out from some weeds.

Chocks Away

Eureka Springs AR

– an adventurous sort tootling along the historic Main Street of a town that drew late 19th Century Americans to try the healing waters. Now it has fudge shops, t-shirt stores, trinket emporia, among other tourist attractions. Today also had the cacophony of open-piped Harley riders thundering up and down the traffic jammed narrow streets.
