PIC OF THE WEEK - FALL LANE

It's sooo nice riding through the cooler Alabama air these days. Saturday, as Harley and I rode out in search of some pretty foliage, we're able to enjoy the weather as it is so much more comfortable now.

We found ourselves riding up around Talladega county and near a little town called Fayetteville, when we came upon this cozy country road that was a tunnel of reds, orange, yellow and browns.

FALL LANE
While we stretched and drank our Sonic Sweet Teas (yes, we have made up a way to carry Route 44 drinks in our saddle bags) I took some shots of this beautiful road, I'll just call Fall Lane.

I love riding on roads like these. They almost seem surreal. The gauntlet of shade and color transforms into a secret path from your favorite childhood storybook, and allows your imagination to take you far, far away.

It was a great day Saturday. Riding our Glides... listening to Auburn football on the radio... beating LSU and making the Auburn Tigers #1 in the SEC... just puts icing on the cake.

Have a great week everybody!

Great shots. Glad the weather is better for you. And yes the imagination does wander.

Oh yeah...I'm definitely putting saddlebags back on the Harley. Now how did you fix your saddlebags to carry Sonic's sweet tea???

Gary... simple pleasures are sometimes the best pleasures!

Webster... my imagination is working over time lately. If I could just get down on paper what's been spinning around in my head... I could retire! :D

Kickstart... It's easy! It only works if were not riding on a trip, otherwise there is no extra room in the bags. I'll tell you what... I'll do a post about it. I've often thought it would make a good subject and the other day I happen to take some pics of our bags open and it looked like we were tailgating! Stay tuned...

I love fall! I miss it because we don't get that here.

That is the ride that is worth the ride. Thanks for the beautiful picts. Now I'm getting home sick.
