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.

Swim Bike Tun

– an early Sunday saw me in Grant Park at 5am to meet with the others in the motorcycle crew for this year’s Triathlon. Again, I ferried Oli the photographer around the course to allow him to capture the athletes. Mostly loops up Lake Shore Drive, but also rode along the busway, a secretive road between the Illinois Center and McCormick, and some sections of the south lakefront trail to see the runners. Nice team and splendid weather.

– it was probably tricky to hold up that placard.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Street Comet

– old pic from a bygone era. Vincent owner sits proudly with a lucky young lad on the corner of Brevitt Road and Wanderers Avenue in the Midland city of Wolverhampton. The penny loafers with trousers tucked into the socks are quite a look. Probably just going to pop down to get some milk for the tea…

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

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.
