Rough day at the office

I guess things do come in 3's.
After the x-cal came unglued, my xm Roady radio died and my bike rack suffered some damage, all this week. The bike rack break-down could have been catastrophic as I would have lost the bike off the back of the STeed, but I caught it in time. Had to visit a farm supply store and get some U-brackets. Easy solid fix.
Taking the x-cal to the bike store Friday to see what my options are and found a Roady on CraigsList for $15, so all in all, things are turning out OK.

The view north from my motel deck of Lake Superior, Chequamagon Bay in Ashland, WI this AM was sweet.

Oregon Roadies

a couple shots of my brother and his wife in OR doing some road riding. In the sun, snow and rocks that is McKenzie Pass in Central OR.

On The Road Again

Back out on BOB (bike on bike, mountain bike on motorcycle) this week. 4.5 hrs. for work up to a mill in the UP. Arrived and was told about this.

You just never know. Heard this song later on today.....although it's about lost love and learning to love again, it also talks about not wasting your "summers and springs" and that there are only so many of them, so do what you want in life, you only go around once and you only get one chance at it.
Time, time tickin', tickin', tickin' away.........

Got in a nice ride up there. 11 miles in just over an hr. 80% real nice singletrack.

After the mtb ride, drove on to Ashland on Lake Superior, another 3 + hrs....toward dusk. Drove slow, saw a few deer but luckily in the ditch, not on the road.
