Early Fall Fun Run

It's that time of year around these parts when the weather is difficult to rely upon for consistent temps and the amount of sunlight diminishes significantly. *What do you do before Winter sneaks up on you... you ride when you can. *I took an extended lunch break this last week on a supremely beautiful day with temps in the 70's for a quite ride around Ispwich, Essex and Goucester. *Had an enjoyable little hike to the ocean, a satisfying meal and saw some quirky roadside odditites. On a side note, the Versys has been very patient biding it's time in the garage while I play with the new to me Interceptor.




A great little stretch of road off of HWY 1, it's not faste paced, it's on the short side for distance but the scenery is really nice and the roads are a real treat with a few technical turns thrown amongst the sweepers, plus there is hardly any traffic.





Nothing beats the cod bites at JT Farnham's Famous Clams, so many clam shacks around this is my favorite with great outdoor seating.





The Interceptor approves of the view.





Hanging out at the gazebo in Stage Fort Park in Gloucester.





I don't know the name of this location and I can never find it on a map but I find myself here often when I'm just meandering down roads that I like between Essex and Gloucester.





The tree line before the ocean at Rafes Chasm Park. *It's a very short hike off the road with some tremendous views.





Some wildflowers along the hiking path at Rafes Chasm Park.





Bird in flight looking south along the Atlantic coast.




I saved the best pic for last!


Looking forward to a few more Fall rides before the bikes get packed away for the year but I don't think any of them will be as nice as this.

Great pics and write-up! Still love your Honda - those colors remain one of my favorites!

In all my jet travels I have been around to see that area a few times.

Man that fried Cod sure looks good.

And the beautiful Interceptor with the matching helmet. You really scored on that unit.

Great pics...thinking you had a real camera rather than phone pics.

Just found some old pics from one of my Boston area trips. Drove the rental car up the coast to Rockport. Also got a cool sunset pic of old Ironsides. Lots of history back in your area.

Thanks everyone, Fall is a great time to get out and ride if the weather is favorable.

The cod is good, they have a lot more on their menu but I always get the cod bites. Gotta try something new next time.

Good eye on catching the helmet in the background!

Actually I took all those photos with my iPhone. I did run them through PhotoShop for some color correction and sharpness but that's about it.

Rockport is a great place to visit and a nice ride from my house as long as it's not too busy, like on summer weekends.

Great New England fall photos! Leaves here in central Maine peaked about a week and a half ago and with the wicked winds most are already on the ground.

BTW, perspective in the third photo makes it appear as if you have a rear rack installed with a really, really small helmet resting on it! Intentional or not, it's a great photo.
