Went on a good ride today (mostly to try out the seat after Spencer reworked it)! Destination was Ghost Road which is situated in the piney woods of east-ish TX. The road used to be an old railroad approximately 8 miles long...nowadays, it's a packed dirt road that is purported to be "haunted" by a mysterious light. Naturally, there are several spooky tales attributed to the light...all I cared about was that the "light" didn't have any kind of grudge against motorcycles.
Anyhoo! On to the pics:
A few wildflowers along the way:
At the entrance of Ghost Road:
AND THEN IT HAPPENED...a bright light caught my attention in the dense underbrush...kidding! But I did sufficiently spook myself (in broad daylight, no less) enough to turn around about 3/4 of a mile onto the road. My rationalization: I wanted to take a few pics of the irises a few feet from where I started:
The Trinity river on my way home:
And no pictorial essay on Texas would be complete without the obligatory Longhorn:
Yes, I had made a wrong turn.
All-in-all, the V did great! She's actually been sitting in the garage for about 2 months...but she started up and performed without skipping a beat!
p.s. The Spencerized seat is a big improvement...the forward slope is almost entirely eliminated and the new foam kept "sore butt" at a minimum. Well worth the $75!
