COMPETITION - COOL PLACES TO PARK A MOTORCYCLE

I realize that I'm a little late on joining this competition, but the deadline isn't until Monday... so here goes.

Gary over at Flies in your teeth started this and has asked fellow riders to post a picture of their motorcycle parked in a really cool place. While looking through my stash to see which pic I would use, I decided I liked this one with the Ol' Girl.
The Ol' Girl in front of Teasley's Mill on Hwy 231, Montgomery County
This was during the Fall, a couple years ago. Auburn was playing a game that day as I was flying my fan flag.

I'm really enjoy the "Boy" now, but I'd be lying if I told you I didn't really miss my Ol' Girl.  She and I rode through a lot of stuff together, but I still think of her often and hope she's doing well under her new master.

I would also like to take this time to plug Gary's awesome new book, "France In America".  Here's his video about it...

I'm very blessed to have received one of these amazing books and I want to encourage you all to seek one out for yourself.  I enjoyed following Gary on his adventure while he was here in the states, and it's extra cool to look at the book and relive his journey with him again.

Hope you have a nice weekend... get out and ride!

Mq01,

I do miss my 'Ol Girl... especially after a 300 mile day. I'm still good with the Boy, but I can sure tell a difference in my fatigue factor, not being on the Glide. It was definitely smoother.

But... I don't miss that extra weight. I enjoy being able to move the Boy around with more ease.

At least I'm still ridin',

Wooley,

Thanks! I think I like old stuff, cause it reminds of the simpler days of the past.

I've been by that place on the 231. And each time we are going to stop and don't. I swear next time.

Just watched the video. It was for us too as we went along with Gary a great ride it was. Had I noticed his map I do belive I'd of met up and rode with him for a bit.

I totally love the video. It was a good idea that you actually posted it.
