Parkway Ride

Picture from the other day after I completed the first service. Took a little trip up on the parkway to kill some time.

The more I think about it the more I think that the Blue Ridge Parkway is a perfect place to ride a Bobber. Beautiful scenery. Smooth, flowing road (for he most part). Places to make rest stops.

In my younger days I didn't ride the Parkway very much because I was likely to get a ticket. I couldn't hold a Ducati down to speed. Now the speed limit would be just about perfect for a Bobber. Oh my. I'm starting to talk like a cruiser rider.

Talking like them is one thing , developing "cruiser face" (the , I'm always angry look) is something else altogether.

I think "cruiser face" comes from wearing a beanie helmet and getting wind blown in your face. I wear a full face helmet.

I was riding a sport bike on the parkway. I passed a dozen Harley riders. They all gave me the finger as I passed.
