Day Trip

Pseudo Spring Ride – 02/07/2015

Posted on Updated on

On February 7, 2015 the morning started in the low 40s (f) but by the afternoon hit up in the lower 60s (f).  62, I believe.  Had planned on meeting up with a couple guys at E.P. Tom Sawyer Park, on the east end of Louisville at 11:00 AM.  Turns out, due to unforeseen circumstances, only 2 of us would be making the ride up to Eminence, KY and then on to Madison, IN.

3 Days Riding

Video Posted on Updated on

So, it started Saturday with a meetup for fresh doughnuts and coffee at 502 Moto (great new shop in Louisville for repairs and builds) with a bunch of friends, including Davidc83! Nice meeting ya, nice to know another NC rider close! The main group was from the Louisville Vintage Moto Works, with a showing of 5 of the 6 of us. It was good times. As it was my first longer distance ride, and first group ride, I was set in the middle, so all I had to do was watch the guys in front. Our route was pretty simple; Louisville to Bardstown with lunch in Kentucky’s oldest tavern, Talbott’s Tavern. Then we left our of Bardstown back to Louisville via Jim Beam Distillery and then back into Louisville. It was a great ride.

Weekend riding and making movies

So, with Saturday being very bright and clear out, I wanted to check out how the GoPro worked out on the windscreen.  Works ok, but there is some vibration.  Gonna look at getting a lower profile camera and mounting it on the helmet, or getting a chest mount.  It was frackin’ cold out, something like 22 degrees.  I was about an hour before I called it a day.  It was COLD!

Started nice, got very cold!

So, I had a nice ride on my new motorcycle (needs a name) on Friday afternoon, even though it was somewhat short and the roads were a bit damp.  Saturday, with temperatures in the lower 60s, I was hoping to get some decent seat time.  Alas, it rained all day, so no riding.  Sunday, I got up got dressed and got on the bike.  It was 48 degrees when I left the house at 10:00 am.  Brisk, but not cold (to me.)
