And so it begins…

Started out at 5:20am at 59929 miles. This trip won’t be nearly as much mileage as past trips, but I’ll still keep track.

Here she is. She was paid the ultimate compliment the other day. I had the Fat Lady in the Honda shop getting the annual safety inspection. The Head mechanic there…the locally recognized guru of Honda that EVERYONE wants working on their bikes when they need it…said, and I quote: “She looks great!”.

It’s good to know that I’m not the only one…and even someone as respected and knowledgeable about bikes as the local Honda mechanic, thinks that she still looks really good for a 12 year old.

Today was just getting to Indiana. I didn’t take pictures of all the “Welcome to” state signs this year…I’ve done that a couple of times already. I did take a couple of scenery pictures. I love the Shenandoah Valley.

The weather was great. My earlier prediction about being in the mountains during the hottest part of the day was mostly right, although I was in the foothills of Kentucky by the time it got really hot, but the air was still fairly cool so as long as I kept moving it wasn’t bad at all.

This is the first time in years that I’ve made the whole trip without getting wet once. I guess there are some advantages to living through the worst drought in decades.

One last picture to leave you with. Sometimes you see the strangest things on the road.
