I'll leave the descriptions below.

Johnstown, PA about to take the bikes up the Incline Plane

Entrance to the newly opened Flight 93 memorial

Outside Falling Waters in PA (it rained most of this trip, so it was appropriate to stop at a place by this name)

Sukuta Girl's favorite motorcycle gear shop- the Iron Pony outside of Columbus, OH

Sunset outside of the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Aslyum, Weston, WV

Seneca Rocks, WV

Outer Banks, NC

Sukuta Girl and I posing outside Front Royal, VA for our annual Fall Colors photo (a bit late at this elevation)

Belated Christmas Card- We hope everybody had a great holiday!

1/1/12 Polar Bear Run- 1st ride of 2012- riding onto White's Ferry to cross the Potomac from VA to MD- great weather that morning- ended the ride home in rain riding down along a gusty storm front

Here's the ferry coming to pick us up. Unfortunately carrying another load of cages to clog up the roads in Virginia

1/7/12 Frederick, MD Lunch Ride looping thru Blair Witch country, Antietam Battlefield, Harpers Ferry, WV

We've had a mild winter so far and we're still out riding every weekend. Of course it helps to have heated gear!

Well , I did get 2 of my bikes out Tuesday (1/31/12) . I have a Suzuki DR650 that I road about 40 miles just to charge the battery and rode the DN-o1 about 12 miles . What a blast and I can't wait until spring . Watch out for that loose gravel !

Sounds like a fun way to charge batteries!

What a winter (?) we are having, but you are right about the sand on the road. Just about a 1/2 mile from the Airpark gate is a natural gas well pad and the trucks have been in and out alot lately and for almost 150 yards there is a massive amount of dirt residue on the pavement. You guessed it.... right in a long sweeping turn!! Although, we just got word they will be gone now until they start 3 new wells in late July. I guess that's just part of progress ($$$)?

The weather has been amazing around. Between this weekend and yesterday (one of SukutaGirl's day's off) we logged just over 400 miles

Yesterday I left work early and we spent a very pleasurable 4 hours & 110 miles on the backroads. Lots of flowering trees: Magnolias, Cherry and Dogwood. Spring is banging down the door and the riding is great! 82 yesterday and 80 today; we're already wearing our summer mesh jackets!

Our last ride was this afternoon. What a beautiful day with temps topping 83 degrees. Had to pull the jacket liners out!! Made a short 5 bike group ride just over 100 miles thru some of the twisties here in the Ozarks. Hondas where; DN-01, XR-650L, GL1500 Trike, GL1500 Bike & the only Non-Honda for today's ride, our friend and neighbor on his BMW Advantage. Great group of friends!!

Relieved just a touch of that Spring Tension!!!!!
